When investing in a new roof, you want to make sure you purchase the best quality material and hire trained professionals. With a solid roofing material, you can expect it to last for 20 years and if you choose to re-roof over your shingles, your roof will last for 15 years. Let’s go over what damages to look for in your current roof and how to choose the best roofing option, allowing you to truly get your money’s worth out of your new roof.
Look at the Attic Ventilation. If there isn’t enough attic ventilation, your roof could age prematurely. Attics with poor airflow can hit above 100 degrees which can ultimately affect the shingles on your roof.
Insulate Your Roof. When it’s extremely hot outside, the roof actually feels much hotter and the roof transfers radiant heat to the attic. Roof insulation will not only keep your roof cooler but your entire home will remain cool. This in turn, allows the roof to last longer.
Don’t be Cheap. You might want to choose the cheapest roofing material but in the long run, this probably won’t be the smartest decision. A cheaper roof means it won’t last nearly as long or you may need to dish out more money on repairs.
Understand Issues Within Your Home. There’s no doubt that your roof will encounter an issue here and there over the course of its lifespan. Keep in mind, that’s in a period of 20 years. There could be a tree covering the roof which ends up causing damage or perhaps there’s to much water damaging the roof. Make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into before looking for a new roofing material.
