On average the cost to replace a roof ranges between $7,000 to $14,000 depending on the size and the materials used. Typically the roof on a house needs to be replaced every 20 – 50 years, yielding proper inspections have been done on it in due time. Without appropriate maintenance scheduled hidden damage could be the cause of much more expensive repairs and potential replacements.
Before you purchase a house you 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 it doesn’t need any major repairs. Once you move into the house proper inspections still need to happen, but seldom get completed on a regular schedule. Why? Your roof is one of the most important elements to your house that with proper inspection you can prevent major damaging 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 the very 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.
