How old is the roof on my house?

There's no doubt about it: your home's roof is one of the most important aspects of its exterior. And with this degree of importance, you want to make sure that you can keep your roof in great condition. And this starts by knowing how old your roof is—as most roofs are rated to last about 25 years.

That's why, in this blog, we'll discuss a few ways that you can determine the age of your roof if you aren't quite sure. But before we get into all of that, we wanted to tell you more about us.

Ask the Neighbors

In many neighborhoods, you'll see residents who have lived in the same home for decades. This is a great place to start. Check with some of your close-by neighbors and ask if any of them remember the last time your home had a roof replacement—their answers may surprise you!

Check Tax Records

In some instances, you may be able to check tax records to see when a permit was required for your home to have a roof replacement. This is a tedious method, but it can be effective.

Call Local Roofing Companies

Check with the local roofing companies in your area and ask them to look into their records. There's a chance you'll call the right person who once worked on your roof and can give answers.

Have Your Roof Inspected

Get in touch with a local roof replacement company and ask them to come do an inspection of your roof. They may not be able to get the exact of your roof, but they'll have a good idea and can let you know if it's time for a roof replacement or not.
