The lifespan of your roofing system will depend on several factors: the quality of the installation, the grade of the roofing product and the frequency of roof maintenance. A correctly installed, high-quality roofing system that receives frequent roof maintenance will protect your home for many years. AnyWeather Roofing, a GAF Master Elite® contractor, explains more:
Quality of Installation
Installation mistakes can considerably shorten a roof’s service life. For instance, nailing errors can cause shingles to crack, greatly increasing the risk of roof leaks. Once leaks occur because of installation mistakes, the roof’s durability and lifespan are compromised. Always choose a reputable contractor. Your choice of roofing contractor should have all the necessary licenses, certifications and local references.
The quality of your roofing shingles and other roofing materials has a significant effect on your roof’s expected service life. As a roof repair expert, we recommend roofing products from proven industry leaders like GAF. GAF shingles utilize Advanced Protection® Technology that greatly increases their shingles’ toughness, wind resistance, flexibility and granule adhesion. Their shingles have passed some of the industry’s strictest weather-resistance tests.
Frequency of Maintenance
Regular professional maintenance is necessary to prevent damage to a roof and to extend its service life. A maintenance program counteracts the effects of wear and tear, and prevents small leaks from causing major water damage. This is preferable to repairing a roof only when leaks occur because proactive maintenance will preserve the roofing system’s integrity for a longer time.
