Even the best roof can’t last forever. A standard asphalt roof lasts about 20 years. Even other roofing types have lifespans. Eventually they get so damaged that they can't function any longer, or they just wear out because of constant exposure to the elements.
You may not know right away you need a new roof. Usually it starts to go a few years before it goes. A roof inspection can catch little problems early, but many people don’t bother to get roof inspections as routinely as they should. In those cases it takes one major damaging event (like a big storm) to make it clear you need a new roof.
There’s never a good time to need a roof replacement, but Landmark Roofing will make it as un-stressful as possible.

When do I need to replace my roof?
Age is the first sign. An asphalt roof only has a 20-year lifespan. If your roof is getting close to that age, it’s served you well and may continue to hold up for a bit longer, but you need to go to the bullpen now.
Signs of wear will tell you how urgent a new roof is. Take a look at your shingles: If they're curling, cracked, or showing bald spots because of missing roof granules then you’ll need a roof replacement soon.
Should a roof replacement include ice and water shielding?
Yes. Because of the hail and the snow we get here in the Peoria area, no roof should be without ice and water shielding. Also, local roofing codes require it. If you want extra ice and water shielding - so that it extends farther up your roof - just ask. I helps reduce damage from winter storms.
How much does a roof replacement cost?
It depends mostly on the size, pitch, and complexity of your roof, but most roof replacements cost between $5000 and $15000.
The condition of your roof deck, soffits, fascia, and other components may also affect the cost of your roof replacement.
When does homeowners’ insurance cover roof replacement?
Your homeowners’ policy may cover your roof replacement if you need to replace your roof because of a storm or similar event. Otherwise you'll probably have to pay it out-of-pocket, because homeowners’ policies don't cover routine wear and tear.
