Now that summer is in full swing, you may be exploring ways to improve the appearance of your house. Why not start with a roofing project? Your roof endures years upon years of abuse from extremes in temperature, thunderstorms, blizzards, high winds, and more.
Roofs don’t last forever, so age is by default a very important indicator to consider if you are determining on repairing or replacing your current roof. Some roofs last longer than others. On average, an asphalt roof should last around twenty years if it’s been properly maintained. Obviously, in most cases the cost is the determining factor of a repair or replacement. With roof maintenance, repair and replacement timing is everything. Unfortunately, there are several situations when repair is not an option. You shouldn’t wait until your roof is completely in shambles before you pull the trigger to replace it.
At Weber Construction, we believe it’s best to know upfront what the condition of your roof is, so that you’ll be able to prevent any problems prior to their occurrence. Please see below for a maintenance checklist of some ways you can protect the investment in your roof.
