Factors That Can Affect the Life Span of Your Roofing System

By January 4, 2018Roofing

A roof’s life span depends on several factors, namely the quality of its installation, the frequency of roof maintenance and the caliber of the roofing product. A properly installed, well-maintained and high-quality residential roofing system can protect your home for many years.

Factors That Can Affect the Life Span of Your Roofing System

However, installation mistakes, lack of maintenance and poor materials can drastically shorten a roof’s life span. Nomad Roofing, the trusted residential roofing contractor, explains more:

  • Proper Installation – Mistakes during your roof installation can considerably shorten your roof’s life span. Errors in nailing the shingles, for example, can cause them to crack, increasing the risk of roof leaks. Once leaks happen because of installation mistakes, the roof’s expected service life is compromised. That’s why it’s essential to choose a qualified contractor for your roof replacement project. Your choice of contractor should have all the necessary licenses, certifications and qualifications to ensure professional installation.
  • Regular Maintenance – Regular professional maintenance is necessary to make sure that a roof lasts its expected service life. A maintenance program implemented by a home roofing expert like us counteracts the effects of wear and tear, and stops small issues from turning into roof leaks. Prevention will preserve the roofing system’s integrity for a long time.
  • Quality of Materials – Lastly, the life span of your roofing system depends on the quality of the roofing materials and the roofing system components. We recommend choosing roofing products from proven industry leaders like GAF. GAF shingles utilize Advanced Protection® Technology, which greatly increases shingle strength, durability, flexibility and weather resistance.
