This longevity, you might note, is dependent on the skill of the installation, the roof’s ventilation, and how often a broom (or a roofer) meets your roof for maintenance.

Predicting the Weather- Be Proactive, not Reactive with Roof Maintenance

As the saying goes, ‘time and tide wait for no roof.’ The National Roofing Contractors Association encourages homeowners to conduct a residential roof restoration, or at the very least, an in-depth inspection twice a year. Ideally, these inspections should happen in the spring and fall, allowing homeowners to identify and address any potential nuisances that could transform into formidable roof adversaries.
