For this reason, all our articles are geared towards helping homeowners get the best out of their roofing investment with a roof that stands the test of time.

In this article, we have tried to answer the most common questions that homeowners have about their roofs. Let's get started.

Q: How Long Can You Expect Your Roof To Last?

A: Every roofing system is unique with its own set of advantages and limitations. The longevity of a shingle roof can vary depending on the type of shingles installed. On average, a shingle roof can last between 15-30 years. 

Sometimes, in absence of proper maintenance, asphalt shingle roofs can experience problems like granule loss, roof leaks, and mold growth. These issues can lead to premature roof failure. 

Q: Can Metal Roof Help You Save Money?

Metal roofs can help you save significant money in the long run. There are several types of metal roofing systems available on the market including standing seam and metal shingles. Regardless of the option you choose for your home or business, metal roofs are amazingly effective for reflecting heat and sunlight away from your home, keeping your rooms cool and comfortable naturally. This can help reduce the burden on your air conditioning systems that can lower your energy bills dramatically. 

Q: Why Do Roof Valleys Leak?

Roof valleys are formed at the meeting point of two roofing slopes. One of the common reasons why these are the most leak-prone areas of a roof is the buildup of debris in the valleys, blocking the proper flow of water. Over time, the collected water can start seeping into the roofing system that can eventually lead to roof leaks.

Q: Do Gutters Protect The Roof?

A: An efficiently working gutter system can improve the performance and lifespan of any roof. It keeps your roof dry by allowing water to get off your roof easily. As a result, your roof doesn’t experience common roofing issues like roof leaks and mold growth. 

Q: Can Pressure-Cleaning Damage Your Roof?

A: Most homeowners don't know that pressure cleaning or chlorine bleach can adversely affect their roofs. Using these techniques frequently can actually shorten the lifespan of your roof by damaging the protective layers on the shingles.
