Many types of roofing shingles can last 20 to 30 years, but several factors can shorten the lifespan of your roofing. Over time, natural conditions cause your roofing materials to expand and contract, which wears them down. Your roof should be inspected by a professional at least annually, and any roof over 15 years of age is a potential candidate for re-roofing.
Learn about damaged roofs and shingles in this video. There are a few things you can do yourself. Inspect the inside of your home for signs of leaks, especially around chimneys, vents, and skylights. Inspect your shingles from the ground using binoculars to determine a general level of their condition. Your gutters and chimneys also offer their own signs that your roofing materials need replacement.
