When choosing roofing material, many people choose shingles which is the most common type of roof. This is typically what you see when you look over at your neighbors home. What most people do not think about is the role they play in protecting your home.
Shingles on average last around 15-30 years... when you google it but, you're not here for our google findings. We are professional roofers and have advice to help guide your decisions that go deeper than a simple google search. Shingle roofs are typically what homeowners choose because they are within reason, fairly easy to replace rather than completely re-roofing your entire home. They are also known as one of the most affordable roofs to have compared to clay and most metal materials.
Here are things to keep an eye out for so you can know when it is time for repairs or a new roof:
1. Granules are in your gutters
2. Cracked Shingles
3. Shingles are curling
4. Debris has covered the roof
5. Spotting algae or moss on the roof
