What is the #1 way to prepare your home or business’s exterior, including your roof, for anything that Mother Nature might throw at it?

How Does Father Time Take a Toll on My Roof?

Most experts estimate that an average residential roof made of good materials and quality craftsmanship should give a homeowner around 20-25 years of solid protection from the elements. Several factors are involved in this estimate, like if your present roof was built on top of an existing rooftop, if your roof is properly ventilated, and if you’ve had regular roofing inspections. Even if you’ve been lucky enough to avoid major storm damage over the years, your roof has still been completely exposed to the elements for the entirety of its existence. That means 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, your roof has endured a variety of blazing sun, swirling winds, heavy rains, freezing ice, coldness, hotness, and anything else that occurs in the normal course of a day, your reliable roof has taken the brunt of the exposure. You may not even be able to see the roofing damage that has occurred over time. That’s why we recommend having an expert roofing inspector in your area do a full check-down of your home or business’s roof. Alpha Roofing can help!
