Technology has improved the capability of manufacturers to improve the life span of today’s shingles with more asphalt, stronger matting, UV protection, algae resistance, better sealant strips, and higher wind resistant ratings.
The most commonly used shingle in the past was the 3-tabs shingle which roughly have a lifespan of 15-20 years.
Professional grade shingles are known as architectural shingles which is an industry leading standard today. These styles of shingles offer a limited lifetime warranty and a one-time transferrable warranty upon the sale of a house.
From a professional installer standpoint, the lifespan is only as good as the installer is at installing your roof. That is why it is important to hire a professional contractor that not only is installing a name brand product but is offering an installation warranty as well. The number one reason the lifespan of a product is voided is due to poor installation. This will cause a manufacturer warranty to fault.
There are more options than just the mentioned shingles above. There are endless upgrades for a more designer look if desired.
A roof is more than just a roof. It is the first line of defense for you and your home. It is one of the most important aspects of your house, protecting your valuables and family 365 days a year.
The integrity of your roof can be compromised due to the severity of storms. The obvious things to see are leaks and blown off shingles scattered debris your yard. The not so obvious things are heavy winds damaging seals on shingles, hail impacting shingles, and granule loss that is collecting in your gutters. All unseen damages to the untrained eye will cause pre-mature aging of a roof. These are all things that a professional should be looking for which can be easy for a homeowner to overlook.
We encourage homeowners of two-story homes to call a professional for inspection. A roof may appear to be easy to walk. However, with varying pitchs it’s important to follow the proper safety rules. If you are unsure about climbing on your roof please call a professional to have the roof inspected.
1. Is there an ideal time to replace a roof?
Roofing can be installed year-round as long as the weather is permittable and is within the manufacturer's guidelines. Some installers only install during warmer months while others might install year round.
2. How long does the roof replacement take?
An average home project for a professional roofing crew will be 1 – 4 days depending on the scope of the project. That does include prep, install, and cleanup time. Job difficulty such as pitches, landscaping, and accessibility always play a factor in the efficiency of getting a job done.
3. Are there any ideal roofing accessories?
Yes, there are. A roofing professional will evaluate your home and where it is located. For example, houses located inland vs. lakeshore and open lots (high wind areas) vs. wooded/shaded areas.
Codes and common products are always evolving into better longevity for homeowners. Key components are ice/water underlayment, cap masters for pipe boots (which is the #1 cause of leaks within the first 15 years of a new roof) and kick out flashing (J’d Out Kick Out Flashing) (which protects your side walls from water filtration which is the #1 cause of rotted side walls.)
