Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Roof

Jun 06, 2023

Choosing whether to have your home’s roof replaced is a big decision, and most homeowners only want to pursue this project when it’s truly worth it. To help you make the right choice, check out some of the signs it’s time to replace your roof:

Your Home’s Roof is Decades Old

The age of a home’s roof is a major factor in the decision to get a replacement. Every roofing system has its own lifespan, and it is affected by many external factors like the weather. However, in general, if it has been several decades since you have last had your roof replaced, it may be time to consider getting a new one.

There is Damage Present

If there is slight damage to your home’s roof, like missing shingles, it can usually be remedied by repairs. However, extensive damage can be an obvious sign that a replacement is in order. At the very least, issues like leaks, holes, sagging sections, and more, should all be inspected by a professional roofing team.

You Are Noticing High Energy Bills

If you have noticed that your monthly energy bills are steadily increasing, it could be because your roof is outdated and ready to be replaced. New roofs offer superior thermal performance and can keep your property more resistant to temperature changes, leading to more affordable energy bills.

 The only complaint I have is when I have J&B do my roof in another 30 years or so, is Dave their sales man (a great guy) would not guaranty I could get the same great crew I had this time. They did a fantastic job. Much better than the last roofing company did. A nice bunch of guys. Did a very nice job cleaning up. I'd give them 10 stars but 5 is the limit. If you need a roof done this is the company you want to do it. One more point I need to make. The guys that did the chimney flashing are artists. I went up on the roof when they were done and was very pleased with not only the roofing job but the sculptured sheet metal work. It's kind of a shame it's on the roof and not hanging on the family room wall :). You get the point. Hire em. You'll like em. 
 We live in a historic designated neighborhood and recently had our 30 year wood shingle roof replaced with another wood roof and new gutters. From Day 1 of the project to the final day, the entire team was responsive, professional, and very competent. When some minor changes were proposed by us they quickly and effortlessly complied. After going through this experience with J&B, I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a roof and gutter replacement, whether it be a simple or complicated project. 
 J & B did an amazing job from start to finish. The initial meeting at my home took place exactly at the time that was agreed upon and Scott was thorough in his explanations and transparent about costs. When the time came to begin the project, the team that showed up was friendly, professional and timely in getting the project done. The cleanup afterward was such that it looked like they hadn't been there at all. The roof looks great, there were no surprises and Scott came by to inspect the work and explain the warranty upon job completion. I would highly recommend them.
