Well-meaning homeowners and inexperienced residential roofing contractors can make drastic mistakes that will shorten the life of your rooftop. During installation, it is imperative that the manufacturer’s guidelines be followed. Failure to do so can result in a roof that will not be covered by your warranty.
Just like any other investment, your roofing needs to be cared for and regularly tended to. Low-hanging tree branches can scrape against the surface of asphalt roofing and cause degranulation. Piles of leaves and other debris can hold water against the surface and weaken the spots, making them vulnerable to leaks, mold and insect infestation. Having a professional roofing service handle regular maintenance will help to prevent minor issues from becoming expensive repairs or early replacements.
From hurricanes to hail, strong wind and storm driven rain, just about any type of weather can cause minor to devastating damage to your home and there is no material that is impervious.
