On average the cost to replace a roof ranges between $7,000–$14,000 depending on the size and the materials used. Typically the roof on a house needs to be replaced every 20–50 years, if proper inspections have been done on it over the years. Without appropriate maintenance, hidden damage could cause much more expensive repairs and potential replacements.
Before you purchase a house, you should hire an inspector to give the house a good once over and make sure that the home had been well maintained, is up to code, and doesn’t need any major repairs. After you move into the house, proper inspections still need to happen. Not many people do it though. Why? Your roof is one of the most important elements of your house that with proper inspection can prevent major damage effects and keep replacement costs down to the 20–50 year replacement average.
Many roofing professionals agree that proper roof inspection and maintenance should be done at least once a year, but it is highly recommended to be inspected semi-annually, or even quarterly—depending on size and foliage around it. With the Illinois winters, it is best to check the roof inside and out after the winter snow melts to see if there are any leaks or weak spots that need repairing.
