As an Orlando roofer we spend a lot of time evaluating roofing and are often asked how much longer a roof last. With the unpredictable weather, that’s not always an easy answer, but there are some things we look at to make that determination. One step you can take to help your roof last as long as possible is regular inspections and roof repair through the Overhead Care Club.
When we evaluate the state of a roof, we look at the installation methods used. This entails everything from the brand of shingles to the underlayment and nails. When a roofer uses sub-par nails or cheap underlayment, your roof won’t last as long as it otherwise might.
Installation isn’t only about the products, but also about the quality of installation. If the reason you’ve called us for roof repair is missing or misaligned shingles, it’s possible that the Orlando roofer made one of two mistakes. Either the nail gun pressure wasn’t set properly or the area intended for nailing was missed. Either way your roof will fail more quickly than it should.
The overall construction of your roof has a lot to do with how long your roof will last. The steeper the roof the faster the water drains so steeper sloped roofs generally last longer. Because Orlando roofing is exposed to sun more than other areas, the color of the shingles also influence how long it lasts. Darker shingles absorb more sunlight than lighter shingles and that is a factor in aging. The direction of your roof also may impact how much sun it gets.
Roof maintenance helps extend the life of your roof. One of the best ways to ensure you have regular maintenance is to work with an Orlando roofer offering a maintenance program.
