How old is my roof?

Three ways to find the age of your roof

The age of the roof is one of the most critical facts to uncover. Most roofing experts suggest that roofs last between 25-30 years. This is a significant investment, so you should find out the exact date your current roof was purchased and installed before you buy a house.

Unless you build the house from scratch, you need to be aware about the age of the roof. Knowing the age of your roof can help you anticipate problems you may encounter and what you can do to prevent.

With these in mind, there are a few ways to find out the age of your roof.

Enquire from the previous owners

Most homeowners don’t mind answering questions about the state of the house, including when the roof was purchased or last replaced. If the previous owners were in the house for a long time, it should be probably known.

Request a copy of the receipt from the roof replacement company

The previous owners may be aware of the roofing company who replaced the roof. However, they may have discarded the copy of the receipt. In that case, you can contact the company and ask for a copy of the receipt or perhaps request the previous owners to do so. 

Get an estimate from a roofing company

If it doesn’t work, you can call in a roofing company to evaluate the condition of the roof and estimate its age. There are professionals who are highly trained, who know the signs and can provide a reliable assessment of roofing sheets in Ghana.
