NEXT DAY CONSTRUCTION & ROOFING

The main purpose of any roof is to provide protection to persons inside a structure from the elements. This purpose is needed in every part of the world as the roof provides shelter against something as basic as bright sunshine. Without a roof, not only would the human population become at risk of the changing weather, so would everything else inside a structure. Your home is probably the largest investment you will make. So, don’t hesitate to invest in a well-structured roof.
The lifespan of your roof is determined by a few key factors that are under your control.
Material- Asphalt shingle roofs are the most popular in the US as they are affordable and offer other benefits as well. They are made to last for about 30 years, but proper care can make them last for up to 50 years.
Installation- It is crucial to hire a skilled and experienced roofing contractor to install the roof. Workmanship errors are among the most common causes of hasty roof failures.
Maintenace- Poor maintenance can cause even the toughest roofs to crack damage. Get in touch with a professional roofing contractor if you see signs of damage including leaks, broken or missing shingles, and cracks.
At the end of the day, your roof will eventually require a replacement. You can follow the tips above to strengthen the lifespan of a roof, but you can’t have a roof with an unlimited lifespan. Age will eventually catch up.
Get the most out of your roof by maintaining it. Your roof should be inspected twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. You should occasionally check for attic stains, mildew, leaking, curling, missing or bald shingles, broken tiles, or any other kind of weather damage. If your neighbors are all getting their roofs replaced there is a good chance yours needs it too. Get the job done right with Next Day Construction & Roofing.
