So, when should you replace your roof? Here are 3 signs that indicate you should get a new asphalt roof right away.
When your roof is 20 years old
Most manufacturers will provide a life of 25 years for an asphalt roof. However, proper ventilation and installation will get you as far as 20 years. Once your asphalt roof is 20 years old, there are high chances of the roof failing or constant repairs. And you would want to avoid such a situation. Hence, if your roof is 20 years old, get a new roof right away. Don’t wait for far too long to get a new roof.
Premature failing of asphalt roof
Normally, a roof will stay in good condition as per the manufacturer’s specifics. However, there have been instances of premature failing of asphalt roofs. You might start seeing shingles falling in your yard or a small patch of the roof falling in your house. This can be dangerous to the residents of the house. Premature failing of the roof happens due to incorrect installation of the roof or inefficient ventilation of the attic. Inefficient installation of the roof will lead to frequent repair issues. Inefficient ventilation of the attic will result in extreme heat or cold shortening the life of the roof.
Remember, if your roof fails due to these reasons, you can’t avail of the manufacturer’s warranty. You can only avail yourself of the workmanship warranty offered by the Muskoka roofing contractors.
