Until your local government expands the role of a garbage man to include roof repair, you’re going to have to keep your roof attractive and strong on your own. This means hiring a roof contractor to repair or replace your roof when the time comes.

Steps For Roof Replacement
Professional roofing replacement can keep your home safe well into the future. Every roof is a little different, but most follow these steps for replacement:
- Conduct a free consultation to determine the extent of the damage and estimate the costs.
- Remove all of the existing shingles to clear a path for new ones.
- Replace rotten plywood to create a strong platform for the new roof.
- Add ice dam protection to prevent a block off of ice from forming and rotting the wood beneath the shingles.
- Lay down asphalt paper to seal the roof.
- Install new shingles. Homeowners can choose from many different kinds of shingles, including cement, asphalt, and cedar.
- Add flashing to protect against moisture, mostly around chimneys or vents.
- Install the ridge vent to allow warm air to escape from the attic.
After the above steps have been completed, the roof should be fully functional. Typically, residential roofs last around 20 years, though some can last as long as 50 with high-quality materials and proper maintenance. After that time, you need to consider roof replacement to preserve the integrity of your home.
