When to Have a Roof Replacement

General deterioration and telltale signs of wear and tear on your current roof is often your best indicator. How old is your roof? The average roof lifespan is expected to be roughly two decades. If your roof is nearing this point, you should consider having it looked at by a roofing contractor like JTR Roofing. If age is not an issue and all is going rather smoothly including proper function of gutters, minimal leaks and there is zero rodent access; simply replacing damaged shingles should allow for proper roof functionality for years to come. Your roofing contractor can help you decide what’s best for your home.

Determining Your Roofing Budget

While we always do our best to make sure you get a fair and reasonable price of any roofing repair or replacement services you get from us, some roofing materials are more budget friendly than others. Talk to a roofing contractor at JTR Roofing and they can give you some estimates. They can also help you determine if a roof replacement or roofing repair is in order. Why waste your time and ultimately your money on a repair if it’s only going to suffice your roof lasting just a few more years? The repair approach on a roof near the end of its lifespan is thought to buy you two more years on your existing home. So, it’s best to find out the specific needs of your roof.

Appearance & Functionality of Your New Roof

In Minnesota and Wisconsin, we are all too familiar with our extreme weather. You don’t want to have to call us for roofing repair because you chose a material that will not stand up to the outdoor elements. All of the materials that we install (slate, metal, cedar, shingles and more) are good choices for our climate. Next, go outside and take a long look at your home. Try to notice the colors and some of the smaller details. Your new roof should complement the aesthetics of the rest of your home. An experienced roofing contractor will be able to help you find the right style roof for your unique home.

Of course, if you have any questions about how to choose a new roof, you can always call us for our expert advice.
