When Should You Have A Roof Replacement?
If a good 20 or 30 years has passed since the roof was replaced, it would certainly be a great time to consider doing so. A roof’s life span is generally between 15-20 years and you should always keep on top of maintenance. If you notice any water leaks, mould, damaged or missing shingles or the roof appears to be sinking, you should contact a roofing expert immediately to discuss having a roof replacement.
How Long Will A Roof Replacement Take?
The time it takes to replace a roof will also vary depending on the size of your home, the materials used and how much work there is involved in removing the layers of the old roof. It will also depend on the weather and how many roofing experts are working on your home.
Your roofing specialist will be able to provide you with an estimated time frame to which they will be able to finish your roof, following the initial quotation stages.
Which Materials Are Best?
Nowadays, there are a variety of good quality roofing materials on the market which are both durable and affordable. The right materials to choose will also depend on a number of areas including your geographical location and your budget. In previous years shingles were generally made from asphalt and slate and were usually the go to roofing material.
Most roofs are now made from metal or steel materials which are cost efficient, easier to install and maintain. Metal or steel roofing products often come with good warranty, providing peace of mind for their customers. At Rite Price Roofing, we provide our customers with the best roofing products on the market from Bluescope Steel, Colorbond and Zincalume, with up to 30 years warranty.
Should I Have A Roof Restoration Instead?

However, if your roof isn’t too old and you think it could just use a few minor repairs, you could save yourself a significant amount of time and money by opting for a roof restoration instead. You should always seek the advice of a trusted roofing expert to guide you in the right direction.
