Although the roof is a naturally sturdy structure, the shingles you see from the curb are just one part of a bigger system. Your roof may actually be suffering from disrepair and may even require replacement; you just can’t see it because the critical parts are hidden under the shingles.
Winter is easily the most challenging season for a roof. The colder season’s weather patterns can take a toll on even the most durable of systems. To avoid more complicated roofing concerns, it’s important to know what problems your roof will potentially face this winter.

Commercial and residential roofing systems are built using materials that have different expansion and contraction rates. This means that when exposed to different outdoor temperatures, some of these layers move differently than the others, causing roof substrate movement. Advanced Roofing takes an in-depth look at this phenomenon and how its effects can be minimized.
Asphalt shingles are expected to last 20 to 30 years and as they get older, they start to show signs of wear and tear. While aged shingles rarely lead to situations that require spending money on emergency roof repair cost, knowing the signs can be helpful when trying to estimate the time your roof has left.
