Abilene Roofing Tip of the Month: Tips to Extend the Life of Your Roof Shingles

Our roof is one of the most important components of our house. It protects us from different environmental elements. Keeping this in good shape is paramount. However, understand that your roof will not last forever. Some materials will last longer compare to others but once you consider the cost, installation and looks, some of them may not be your practical choice.

How to Extend the Longevity of Your Roof Shingles

Roof shingles are expensive. Apart from the cost of the materials, you will also have to settle the labor cast when installing it. You don't want to shoulder the same expenses after only 5 years. You want your shingles to exhaust its maximum lifespan. Here are some ways to do it.

Orientation and Pitch

The roofs that are high-pitched have a higher protection structurally as opposed to the low-pitched type of roof. It is better in terms of diverting the water away from our roof. The elevated angle of our roof will ensure that only a fraction of the roofing system will be directly exposed to the sun; thus, reducing the damage of UV rays. Nonetheless, the high-pitched are more vulnerable to the damage caused by hailing.

Temperature and Weather

Once temperature changes unpredictably from one point to other, thermal cycling may occur. This can prompt the shingles to contact and expand frequently that will lead to the deterioration of the material. You can avoid the damage caused by the unpredictable weather by choosing shingles with higher quality shingles. Rely only on the professionals when installing the shingles.

Maintenance and Inspection

Perhaps the most important and effective way to expand the longevity of your roof is to perform routine maintenance and inspection. If you cannot do it on your own, make sure to ask your roofer or any home-improvement service provider for a routine inspection of your roof and maintenance. Inspection should be done at least twice a year, but annual inspection may be enough to keep your shingles in pristine condition.

Improve Your Ventilation

When maintaining the condition of your shingles, you will not usually think about the ventilation but it plays a key role in keeping your roof in good shape. Insulation and ventilation will help you avoid the development of ice dam. Once your roof is armed with a proper ventilation system, it will prevent the snow from melting and refreezing. The modern houses are built in a manner that pays attention to the ventilation and insulation. If you have an older house, you may have to introduce additional ventilation system and improve your insulation.

Note that even the best roof can suffer during a severe weather disturbance. You should see to it that your roof will be inspected after a storm or strong wind. You need to treat this as a form of investment. This can help you prevent the replacement of your roof and prolong the life of your shingles. You should also consider applying roof coating if you want to add a couple of years to the life of your roof.
