An Affordable, Stylish, and Durable Roofing Solution
Asphalt shingles are among the most popular kind of roof installation in the United States and for good reason. These shingles are available in a range of colors, designs, and textures. They are lightweight, long-lasting, and affordable. Asphalt shingles are generally made by sprinkling ceramic-coated mineral granules onto organic felt or fiberglass. These granules give the shingle its color as well as added protection from UV rays. Despite these benefits, asphalt shingles are one of the roofing systems with the shortest lifespan. Twenty years is about the maximum life that you are going to get from an asphalt shingle roof, but more often, you can expect about ten years from your roof before asphalt shingle repair for your Cantonment and Pensacola, FL property is recommended.
Things like hailstorms, strong winds, unrelenting sunshine, and pests can damage or entirely remove sections of your roof. Additionally, over time, rain can wash off the protective coating of your shingles. If, when cleaning your gutters, you find large quantities of these granules, it may be an indication that asphalt shingle replacement or repair is in order.
Tell Tale Signs That You Need Asphalt Shingle Repair
Besides finding granules in your gutters, you can look for other signs that your roof is in disrepair. One that you may be able to spot from the ground are shingles that are curled, cracked, or altogether missing. Another noticeable indication of asphalt shingle damage is shingles that appear moldy, wet, or streaked. You may notice these kinds of faulty shingles in areas where the roof receives little daily sunlight. You may notice moss growth in these dimly lit areas as well. The problem with moss, mold, and wet shingles is that the damaged shingles may lose their water impermeability and allow water to seep into the attic and home. Roof damage may also present itself as water stains on the ceiling and wall. You can try to paint over them, but until the roof damage is repaired, you will keep getting stains on your ceilings.
