Your roofing system serves as more than just an aesthetic feature, it’s integral to keeping your home and your family protected from the elements. While your rooftop protects you, it’s essential that you take care of it by maintaining it and replacing it once it reaches the end of its lifespan.

People replace their rooftops for many reasons, primarily because their roofs might have sustained some damage or significantly aged over time. For homeowners in New Jersey, old age, storm, and wind damage are some of the main reasons why homeowners replace their rooftops.

How These Elements Affect Your Home In New Jersey

Old Age

Old age is often the main reason why homeowners replace their roofing systems. Old rooftops tend to have missing shingles, leaking ceilings, loose roofing components, and more. Your rooftop may also age prematurely if your rooftop has been poorly installed or if the materials installed are not suitable for your local environment. Rooftops that have reached the end of their lives can no longer protect homes and homeowners from the onslaught of the elements and thus no longer serve their fundamental purpose.

Incorrect Installation

Installing any type of roofing material needs to follow a specific procedure in order for homeowners to reap all the benefits that the material provides. If your rooftop has been installed incorrectly, it can lead to premature aging and an assortment of home and roofing issues. An incorrect roofing installation can cause leaks in your home, create fluctuating temperatures, let in dirt and debris, and weaken your roofing structures.


When a storm hits, it can cause significant roofing damage. Roofs are often under attack from intense winds, rain, hail snowfall that wear away at your roofing materials over time. This leads to the gradual deterioration of your home’s rooftop. Should a major storm hit, you are at risk of losing your rooftop completely, no matter how weather resistant your roof might be.


Wind can be quite a deadly force, especially in areas like New Jersey. Winds that reach speeds of over 100 mph can quickly cause significant damage to your roofing system, damages which includes wind uplift, destruction to gutters, loosening of soffits and fascia's, and more. Extreme wind events like tornadoes or hurricanes can completely destroy your rooftop or even your home.
