Over your head is the hardest working place of your home. Under attack 24 hours every day 7 days every week is the roof. Battered by sun, rain, snow, hail and wind, your roof is protecting everyone you love and everything you own. We know it may have been while since you’ve given much thought at all to what’s over your head.
The very weather elements that your roof confronts daily can cause the materials to degrade over time. Roof maintenance can add to the lifetime of a roof, but even with the best of routine care, a roof is eventually going to meet a storm that breaks through or just lose enough of the granular material for asphalt or coatings for metal roofs to mean that a replacement is necessary.
Asphalt roofs have a life expectancy of about 15 -20 years. Metal roofs will last about double that time. But that assumes that you have regular roof inspections, apply coatings for metal roofs every decade or so and replace any worn ring seals and weather damaged shingles regularly.
At 7H Roofing and Construction we look forward to working with you to provide a free estimate for what might be needed for maintenance, repair or replacement for your roof.
