Is it time for a roof replacement?
How long a roof lasts
On average, a roof lasts about 20 to 25 years. But a roof may need replacement much sooner for several reasons, including hail damage, poor attic ventilation, low-quality roofing materials or poor roof installation.
How to perform a roof maintenance check
- Use binoculars to get a close look at the roof. Check for shingles that are curled, cracked, distorted, buckled or missing.
- Check gutters and the ground below downspouts for gritty granules worn from the surface of shingles. Shingles that have lost their protective granular coating deteriorate quickly.
- Look inside your attic and check for daylight coming through the roof.
If you see any of the above, call Sears Home Services to schedule an in-home consultation, or fill in the form on this page to request one.
