No matter how durable your roofing system is, there are still many factors that could cause it to fail before its time. Thankfully, there are steps that you can proactively take to make sure that your residential roofing lasts as long as advertised. But before you can prolong your roof’s lifespan, you must first understand what causes them to fail prematurely in the first place.
1. Inferior Workmanship
Remember, your roof is only as good as the installers behind it. That’s why you should always take the time to hire a professional roofer that knows everything there is to know about roofing. Subpar workmanship is probably the most common reason why homeowners experience problems, even with a brand-new roof.
2. Inadequate Ventilation
Not only can poor ventilation result in uncomfortable or even unhealthy living conditions, it can also cause components in your residential or commercial roofing system to fail. Poor ventilation, especially during the summer months, means that there is no way for heat from the sun and inside your home to escape.
3. Lack of Maintenance
No roof is maintenance-free and we cannot stress enough the importance of a regular maintenance schedule. As a general rule, you should have your roof thoroughly inspected at least once every year. Investing in roof maintenance goes a long way towards the long-term health of your roof.
