How can you tell if your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan? One of the most common indicators is the age of the roof. Most roofs last between 20 to 25 years. However, if your roof is over 15 years old, it may already be showing signs of deterioration and it’s time to seriously consider a replacement.
To help you decide whether you should get a new roof, ask yourself the following:

This depends on the environment. A shingle roof usually lasts 15 years. That is just an average. Some will need to be replaced at 10 years and others will last over 20. Debris, sun light, ventilation and other factors, such as bird nesting, play a vital role with how long your roof will last.
In our honest opinion, they are all the same. Except F-Wave being a synthetic shingle. Which is great quality and guaranteed to last 50 years. Get in touch to learn more about F-Wave. Back to Asphalt Shingles. The difference is in the policies from the different manufacturers and how well they stand behind their product if something goes wrong. Also, the color choices. Not all companies have the same color choices or availability in our region.
Flashings such as pipe jacks for your bathroom and kitchen vents. An underlayment such as ASTM grade 15# felt. Drip edge or edge metal around the perimeter of the roof.
The longevity of your shingles will depend on the surrounding environment. Proper ventilation, keeping dirt and debris off the roof, and if they are in direct sunlight most of the day are all important factors.
All shingles should have an underlayment. If your roof is not being torn off and the new shingles are being installed over the existing roof, you do not need to install a new underlayment between the old shingles and new shingles. If you are tearing off the old roof down to the deck or this is a new build, an underlayment must be used.
Shingle roofs will have granule loss over multiple areas of the roof. You may also find pieces of the shingles on the ground after a windy day, this is due to the shingles being brittle and breaking off.
On a tile roof it is extremely hard to tell unless you are having multiple leaks in different areas of the house. If you are experiencing multiple leaks, it is a good indication that the underlayment has either reached the end of its lifespan or that it was installed incorrectly.
Flat roofs with foam and coatings, you will start to see the foam exposed through the top layers of coating. Once the foam has been exposed to the sun, it will need to be ground down or tore off depending on how brittle the foam is.

In addition to having a variety of styles, textures, and colors to choose from, asphalt roofing shingles are cost-effective, durable and easy to maintain. Some varieties of asphalt shingles are manufactured to resemble tile, wood, cedar shakes or slate, while providing more benefits than these other roofing materials. You can visit www.asphaltroofing.org for more information.
To make asphalt shingles, a roll of organic felt or fiberglass mat is mounted and fed into a dry looper. The material passes through a presaturation chamber, then goes into a saturator tank filled with hot asphalt, which coats the fibers. If needed, the material passes through the wet looping machine.
Eves, attics, overhangs, skylights or dead pockets. Check every room, especially in the closets and areas you don’t see every day.
Yes, however some shingles are different sizes and they won’t lay down flat. You should also check your local building codes to verify how many layers they will allow. The standard rule is no more than two.
If your roof is well maintained, every 20 years or when you see signs of aging such as granular loss, fiberglass showing, and/or cracked and broken shingles.
