LIFE OF A ROOF
Here is how your roofs life span is.
When your new roof was installed, friends
and neighbors may have remarked how it enhanced the beauty of your home.
However, research indicates that aging begins soon after the shingles are
installed and progresses rapidly during the initial curing phase of its life
cycle. During this stage, granule loss may occur, small blisters may develop, or
the shingles may curl slightly at their edges. You may even notice that this
curling is more pronounced during cold weather and the shingles may lie flat as
temperatures rise. The good news, however, is that after this curing stage the
shingles enter a long period of slow aging, which lasts for the major portion of
the shingle’s natural life.
