Asphalt Shingle Repair
Nothing lasts forever, no matter how durable the material was built to last. Asphalt shingles are no exception and require regular maintenance to ensure that they are performing correctly. Routine inspections of your roof, during the spring and fall, and after every severe storm is a must with asphalt shingles. The reason for this is because extreme changes in temperature can cause your shingles to crack, which leaves them weakened. Weakened shingles are more prone to curling from high-wind, becoming torn off the roof, or allowing moisture to seep in between the cracks that can lead to water damage.

Asphalt Roof Replacement
For instances when a simple shingle repair will not cut it for your roof, it is time to consider an entire roof repair or replacement. By performing your own inspection on your roof, you can usually tell pretty easily whether or not your roof is going to need a simple repair or an actual roof replacement. Here are a few things to look out for:
Recurring Problems, Such As Leaks
It is never fun to be sitting watching your favorite show on Netflix and feeling the icy cold touch of a droplet of water running down your face. If you look up and notice that the water is coming from your ceiling, you may be dealing with a roof leak. Roof leaks are a serious problem if they are left unaddressed for too long. They can cause major water damage to your ceiling, walls, floors, and personable belongings. If you have already gotten the problem fixed once and notice that it keeps coming back, then this is a sign that your roof needs more than a simple patch, it can indicate that your roof needs either a partial or a full replacement.
Missing or Broken Shingles on More Than 30% of Your Roof
Doing your own routine inspection of your roof is important in keeping a tab on its health. Sometimes, you may notice, especially after a bad storm, that some of your shingles are either broken or have been scattered across your yard. When this happens, it is important to keep tabs of where the shingles are coming from, and how much of your roof has been affected. If the area is smaller than 30 percent, then a simple asphalt shingle replacement should be able to correct the problem and keep your roof running strong. If the problem covers a wider area of more than 30 percent, then it is time to look for a roof replacement. Leaving a bald area so large can put your roof in danger of having the underlayment damaged, your roof to experience more leaks, and leave it vulnerable to even more damages that can affect more than just the roof.
