Replacing your roof is a big decision and a significant investment. It’s important to know when the time is right to reroof so that you can budget accordingly and avoid any unnecessary expenses. Here are some factors to consider when deciding whether it’s time for a new roof for your University Place home.

Age of Roof
The average lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof is 20-25 years. If your roof is approaching or has surpassed the average lifespan, it may be time to consider a replacement or reroofing project.

Condition of Roof
Even if your roof isn’t quite at the end of its lifespan, other factors may contribute to the need for replacement. If you’ve noticed missing shingles, leaks, or other disrepair, it’s probably time for a new roof. If you don’t address these issues immediately, they will only worsen over time.

Severity of Climate
Your area’s climate also influences how often you need to replace your University Place roof. If you live in an area with severe weather conditions like high winds, hurricanes, or even just heavy snowfall, your roof will likely need to be replaced more frequently than someone who lives in a more moderate climate.

There are a few things to remember when deciding if it’s time for a new roof. The age and condition of your current roof are the two most important factors, but the severity of the climate in your area should also be considered. Keep an eye out for signs like leaks or missing shingles, as these could indicate it’s time for a replacement.

As renters, we had the pleasure of working with Michael and his crew during the repair of not only a leaking roof, but also the replacement of 4 skylights.  Throughout the process, everyone that came to the house was professional and understanding.

Michael was very considerate to the fact that this work was a major inconvenience to us as renters and having to live in the house while the project was being completed (our landlords would not pay for alternate housing).  His management of his crew was top notch.

My extended family has had 4 roofs replaced by A Better Roofing Company in the last 6 months and they did a fantastic job.  Michael and Alan were great to talk to. A Better Roofing company was recommended by another roofing company that only does flat roofs and a coworker had her roof done by them, as well as her parents’ roof, and she had nothing but positive words to say.

I don’t like 5 star reviews but anything less would be wrong. We just had our roof replaced and the experience could not have been more positive. The crew worked hard, finished in two days including our garage that needed repairs and sheathing. The roof needed more repairs than we thought so I expected the bill to be a thousand dollars more than the quote. It was only 200 more and I was thrilled. The clean-up was perfect. I didn’t find anything left behind. They even swept the lawn with magnets to get every last nail. I have already recommended them to two friends. I hope I never have to get a new roof but if I do they are the only company I will call.
