The 4 main types of residential roofing are slate, asphalt shingles, cedar shake, and synthetic composite shingles.
There are plenty of roofing options, but asphalt composite shingle is the most common choice for a roof as it gives good value for your cash expenditure.
Most residential roofing will need to be replaced every 20 to 30 years depending on the roofing material used.
We install all residential roofing types, and our business works with customers to help them choose the proper type of roof for their residence.
The inspection starts in the attic space where professionals will look for moisture and/or mold, check the ventilation of the area, and ensure the space is properly insulated. From there, the roof itself will be examined as to the condition of the shingles, whether there are any leaks, indications of storm damage, wear and tear from extreme weather, and the state of the roof flashing.
To help maintain your roof as a homeowner, have regular maintenance checks during each season of the year. Every season can brings its own variation of extreme weather which could challenge the integrity of your roof. You can keep an eye out for damage and any signs of leaks or other roof hazards such as leaves, sticks, growing moss or mold. Specifically after hail season, you might want to check for any hail storm damage.
Residential roofing has an average life expectancy of 15 and 30 years depending on the material.
