There are many factors that can affect your roof’s lifespan, and no matter how hard you try to avoid it, even the most durable and well-maintained roof will have to be replaced at some point. Here are some considerations to help you better understand the various factors that can impact the lifespan of your roof.
- Roofing materials. Asphalt shingles provide an excellent combination of style, affordability, durability and energy efficiency, which is why they are the most popular choice among American homeowners. If longevity is more important to you, metal or tile roofs are a better option.
- Installation methods. Installation mistakes are the leading cause of early roof failures. This is why choosing a proven, experienced roofing company like Muth & Company Roofing is so important. No matter how good the quality of materials you use on your roof, if the roofing team you hire doesn’t know what they’re doing, you could end up with a failing roof that has to be replaced long before its time.
- Weather conditions. This is one factor that you simply can’t control. Well-installed roofing systems can take a beating from Mother Nature and still maintain their integrity, but over time the repeated barrage of wind, rain, hail and sun will wear down your roof.
- Ventilation. If the temperature in the attic is not well-regulated, your shingles could end up baking from the inside out in summer. This effect is caused by inadequate ventilation and can lead to out-of-control utility bills. An underventilated attic can also encourage moisture damage and mold growth.
