How Long Will My Roof Last?

A professionally installed residential roof will last 15 to 20 years. When a sloped residential roof is installed correctly, a homeowner has no need to do anything until it needs replacing. Spokane Roofing Company®, LLC does not do much residential roof repair or maintenance, because we are confident in our craftsmanship to apply a new roof that will last 15 to 20 years.

Every climate is unique. The Spokane Metropolitan Area climate has huge extremes of heat and cold that affect the life of any roof. All roofing materials contract in extreme cold and expand when the weather changes, causing damaging cracks and, eventually, a leaky roof.

Will Homeowners Insurance Pay For A Roof Replacement?

Your insurance company pays to replace a residential roof damaged by wind, hail, or fire, provided the damaged roof was installed correctly.

What Can A Homeowner Do To Extend A Roof’s Life?

  • Stay off of your roof.
  • Keep your gutters clean and drains flowing.
  • From the safety of the ground, look for visible signs of wind, hail, or fire damage. Be sure to check under the eaves and overhangs for any damage that might indicate water leakage. Contact your homeowner’s insurance company immediately after finding signs of roof damage.
  • Residential flat roofs can benefit from routine inspection and maintenance. Learn how to extend your home’s flat roof life.

When Should I Replace My Roof?

Replace a roof older than 20 years. It already has exceeded its expected life for our climate. Replace a roof between 15 and 20 years old, when replacing it brings you peace of mind.
