In this article, we’ll share some signs indicating that it may be high time for you to replace your metal roof.

Major Storm Damage

If you’ve recently experienced a major storm in your area, you may want to inspect your metal roofing for any damages. While some damages may be repairable, in the case of severe storms, you may need to have your roof replaced. This is why trimming any foliage around your roof is so important.

It’s Over 20 Years Old

While some metal roofs can still look great at 25 years old, you may definitely want to have your roof professionally inspected when it reaches the 20-year mark. From this point on, your roof may no longer be under warranty, and in many cases, it may have neared the end of its lifespan.

Rust And Corrosion 

If your metal roof has begun experiencing rust and corrosion, there is often no way to stop the rest from spreading. Rust causes holes over time and essentially deteriorates your roof. Therefore, ensure that your roof is properly sealed. Once rust has set in, you may want to start budgeting for a new roof.


Leaks are often the cause of holes, punctures and tears in your metal roof. Leaks can be annoying and even damaging. While they can be plugged and repaired, it may be worth your while to invest in an entirely new roof.
