It would be ideal if roofs lasted forever, but as with all things, roof shingles will age.
Not all shingles will age at the same pace. The best way to assess how long your shingles will last is to check the manufacturer’s warranty.
A twice yearly inspection by a professional roofer will keep your roof in good condition.
When shingles become old or begin to show signs of aging, they begin to crack, curl or become loose. They may in fact even break off.
Never ignore these signs. When you begin to see signs of aging in your shingles, contact a roofing contractor and have the roof inspected. Delaying roof repairs can result in expensive repairs.
If an experienced roofing contractor determines that shingles need to be replaced, do not attempt to do the work yourself. Always have an experienced roofer handle your roofing needs, including replacing or repairing aging or damaged shingles. By repairing shingles as they become damaged, you will delay the need for a complete roof replacement.
