By the time your roof tells you it needs replacing, you’ve missed the least expensive window of opportunity. Roof leaks can go undetected for years. By the time you notice moisture leaching through inside your home, you could have a significant repair on your hands.
Check your paperwork from the last time you put on a new roof—was it 7 years ago? 10 years? Longer?
If you bought your home within the last 5 years, do you know the age of your roof? Check the house inspection report and see. It’s worth looking into this!
