Replacing Your Roof - Why, When, How

Replacing your roof will transform the look of your home, drastically improve its structure and increase its market value.

However, replacing a roof is a big task. 

There are a few factors to keep in mind if you are considering replacing your roof, and it definitely shouldn’t rush into it. 

Before you start ripping your roof off, it is important that you know the why, when and how of it:

Why You Should

Although your roof should last for a few decades, it won’t last forever.

Your roof’s purpose is to protect you from the elements but that means it will inevitably weather a bit of damage. 

This is particularly applicable in Queensland, with the harsh heat and crazy summer storms. 

If you notice that your roof has suffered wear and tear over the years, it might be time for a new one. By investing in a good quality roof, you will know you will be protected for years to come.

When You Need To Replace Your Roof

Typically, a roof should last 30+ years but this is dependent on numerous factors.

How well it was maintained, the severity of the weather and whether it has been restored or not all contribute to how long it will last and at what point you need a replacement.
