Buying a home is the single biggest investment that most of us will make. The roof of our house plays a vital role in protecting our house and keeping its value in the resale market.
The lifespan of the roof depends on the roofing materials used, the local weather conditions, care taken during the installation process and the level of maintenance applied to it.
Asphalt and wood shingle roofs can last for 30 to 40 years, respectively. Clay tile roofs have a lifespan of 20 years whereas metal roofs can last for more than 40 years.Also you can hire the H & M Metal Roofing contractor for your roof instalation.
The sun has a damaging effect upon the roofing material, regardless of what type of roof it is. The rays cause the material to expand, contract, warp, curl and lose strength and state.
Factors such as rainfall, high winds, snowfall, hail, etc cause additional damage to the already weakened roof resulting in leaks, damage, mildew and fungus growth.
If an examination of a roof reveal that there is a leakage problem at several points and that the shingles are worn out, repairing the roof is a greater idea than making renovations.
A new roof gives the benefits of providing strong protection for your house preventing damage to the structural systems inside the home from leaks as well as a new roof can provide improved insulation and a change in the appearance of your home.
