How Do I know If It's Time To Replace My Roof

Research indicates the aging process for a roof begins soon after the shingles are installed and progresses rapidly during the initial curing phase of its life cycle. During this stage, granule loss may occur, small blisters may develop, or the shingles may curl slightly at their edges. You may even notice this curling is more pronounced during cold weather and the shingles may lie flat as temperatures rise. The good news is, after this curing stage, the shingles enter a long period of slow aging, which lasts for the major portion of the shingle's natural life. Shingles will usually last between 15 and 30 years. The length of the life cycle will vary depending on the quality of the shingle and the location of the property.
