When Is The Best Time To Replace My Roof In Beaufort South Carolina?


Although the average asphalt shingle roof can last up to 20 years, the lifespan of your roof depends on the materials used, the quality of installation, and the climate in your area. If you live in a region like Beaufort, South Carolina where extreme temperatures and storm activity can take a toll on your roof, you must inspect your roof after each major storm to make sure it’s in top shape. 

As your roof approaches the end of its life cycle, you'll start to notice an influx of constant repairs. When your roof is at the end of its lifespan, it's time to think about your roof replacement options, including when is the most convenient time in your schedule, as well as how quickly your roof may need professional attention. For Beaufort, South Carolina residents, the sweet spot in which you’ll want to consider replacing your roof is between 12-15 years of age.

Once you’ve decided when to proceed, you would want to schedule a time to have the work completed. Although it is possible to replace a roof at any time of year, certain months and seasons are more desirable than others for several reasons.

How Much Does a Roof Replacement Cost in Beaufort, South Carolina?


The cost of replacing your roof in Beaufort, SC varies depending on many factors. However, the main factors that will have the greatest impact on the cost include:

  • The type of roof material you choose.

  • The total square footage of your roof area that will be replaced.

  • The complexity or difficulty of your roof project. Such as, how steep is your roof.

The most economic roof materials installed in Beaufort are asphalt shingles. There are 4 different types of asphalt shingles to choose from depending on the particular style or curb appeal you prefer. Also, the duration of the warranty for the materials, and the budget you have set aside will impact the final cost of your roof replacement.

The 4 different shingle types are:

  1. 3-tab shingles

  2. Architectural shingles

  3. Upgraded architectural shingles

  4. Designer shingles


It would be impossible for me to give you an exact price without knowing all the factors that determine the final cost, however, most homeowners can expect the cost of their roof to average between $12.000-$15,000. This price is based on a typical 3 to 4-bedroom home with a standard 2-car garage installing an architectural shingle.

The architectural asphalt shingles shown above are the most popular shingles installed on residential homes in Beaufort County. Your price may be slightly less, but it could be a little higher. Typically it will fall somewhere in between depending on the different factors that go into calculating the exact cost.

How Long Will My Roof Replacement Take?


Every roof replacement situation is different, so there’s no sure way of knowing how long your specific project will take.

Depending on extreme weather or difficult accessibility to your roof, it could take up to a week for the crew to finish your replacement. If your roof has a steep slope, most roofers may need to take safety precautions and move slower than they would on a flat roof.

When it comes to the weather, a roof needs to be replaced during the right conditions. If it’s raining, or it’s scorching hot, you run the risk of improper installation. If it’s raining during the day of your scheduled replacement, it will most likely need to be rescheduled during more favorable weather. All of this being said, without inclement weather or an extremely complex roof, it’s safe to say your replacement should be completed within a few days.

What Are the Benefits of a New Roof?


A new roof provides many benefits, starting with our favorite: peace of mind. If you’ve ever had a roof leak, you know just how stressful the aftermath of the situation can be. With a new roof built with long-lasting materials, you won’t have to worry about leaks for a long time, if at all.
