The roof on your home plays a vital role in the overall safety and protection of the interior space. The materials used to construct a roof dictate how much maintenance it requires, as well as how long it will last. Asphalt shingles can last for 10-20 years when cared for properly, while metal roofing can last for 50 years or more. Although the lifespan of various roofing materials can vary, no roof is designed to last forever. A roof takes a lot of abuse and should be inspected regularly to look for signs of damage. If the damage is severe, you may require roof replacement.
Some of the warning signs that a roof is in need of some attention include shingle granules in the gutters, visible dark patches, missing shingles, and patches of light coming through the ceiling of the structure’s top level. A change in energy efficiency can also indicate roofing problems, which can show up in the form of rising energy bills or drafty areas within the space.
