The Importance of Roof Maintenance

post img

Understanding your roof and the need for roof maintenance is essential for the long-term integrity of your roof. A roofing system is comprised of asphalt shingles, metal flashings, plastic vent pipe collars and galvanized nails. Just like an automobile, your roof needs tune ups, to prevent wood rot, leaks, and sheet rock stains and molds from forming. As time goes by your roof gradually degrades. Just because your shingle is a lifetime shingle does not mean it will last for a lifetime. The shingle is “lifetime” in name only. The average lifespan of an asphalt roof is 20-25 years. As your shingles heat up and cool down, they expand and contract. Over time, flashings can come loose, nails can back out, vent pipe collars can crack and shingles can wear in one spot more than another. As the wear on the roof continues, the roof becomes more susceptible to wind and weather damage. Good roof maintenance consists of checking and sealing flashings, replacing damaged vent pipe collars, sealing exposed nail heads and fixing damaged shingles.
