Glad you asked. It is important to understand the intricacies of your roof, so you can identity issues when they arise.
Rationale for a new structure covering.
The average asphalt shingle roof should remain fully intact for approximately a quarter of a century. At that point, you may want to have an expert conduct an inspection.
You may be able to get visuals on any roof damage yourself. Without climbing onto the top of your house. That would be dangerous. Always do a quick overview after a storm. In addition to downed power lines and large tree branches, the shingles could have been disrupted. Even if there was no storm, those shingles can sag. This likely indicates rotting material underneath. That's never good. A heavy rain or snow puts the roof at serious risk for damage to your home. Basically, note if any roof shingles are missing or contorted.
Check gutters for debris that may be clogging the waterflow. While you or an expert is cleaning the gutter, watch for small particles of asphalt. If you see this, let your Long Island roofing contractor know. These pieces (or granules if you prefer) are from shingles which are wearing away. Remember, materials like this never last forever. By the way, debris is an odd word. The "s" is silent and there is no plural form.
Water leaking into your home is an obvious reason for modifying the roof of your house. When a torrential rain hits, check for any liquid dripping into a room. There may also be evidence of leaking in the form of stains along the walls. Water is required for life. But water will also cause destruction. This is where waterproofing enters the picture.
