A residential roof replacement is a major home improvement project so it only makes sense that homeowners would want to get the most out of this endeavor. The lifespan of a roof can vary from 15 to over a 100 years, depending on what material you chose for it. One way to maximize the value of your roof replacement is by making sure your brand-new roof lives up to its estimated service life, and maybe a year or two more.
Regular maintenance is key to keeping your roof in good shape throughout its lifespan. Inspections every once in a while will not cut it. Proper roof care must be done regularly to really ensure performance and longevity.
