many times it is
most appropriate to repair a roof that is leaking or that has sustained
damage. Again, have a trusted roofer inspect the entire roof if you are
having problems so you can make an educated decision pertaining to repair or
Maybe...or maybe not. If the technician does the proper job, it
should not. However, as we are all human, mistakes can happen and
necessitate a repair. Be sure to ask your provider to pay for the repair if
they caused the leak.
It can if you are not careful. Small amounts of careful walking to
clean gutters, make repairs, or install Christmas lights should not
negatively impact your roof, but be careful and observant as to any rips or
tears in the shingles.
Age and condition. Roofs typically last
15-25 yrs depending on the type and quality and exposure to the elements,
including wind and hail damage. We recommend having a trusted roofer
inspect to help you form an educated decision.
On average a 20 yr roof lasts 15 or more
years, a 25 yr roof may easily attain 20 and architectural shingle roofs
could realistically attain 25-30 yrs depending on the quality of shingle.
Some roofs are true lifetime roofs and may last up to 50 yrs.
