Weathering is the term roofers use to describe the effects of long-term weather exposure on shingles. Weathering is the natural process that causes shingles to deteriorate over the course of their lifespan. Various factors can affect how well an asphalt shingle roof can deal with weathering.
In general, you will get what you pay for when it comes to asphalt shingles. Poor-quality roofing shingles are worse at dealing with weathering in comparison to high-quality shingles. Shingle quality varies widely so you should carefully check product features and read customer reviews.
Quality and Frequency of Maintenance
A poorly maintained roof will fail earlier than a roof that receives regular maintenance. The quality of this maintenance also matters. A good roof repair company will be able to spot and fix small issues before they turn into big problems that can damage the roof.
The slope of your roof can affect how long your shingles will last. The flatter your roof is, the more often you’ll have to replace your shingles. This is because flatter roofs shed moisture more slowly, and they are more directly exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays.
