Annual Roof Inspections Can Prolong the Life of Your Roof!

Image
Your roof is a big investment and if you recently put on a roof at the Lake of the Ozarks or you’re looking for a way to prolong the life of your roof, we highly recommend getting your roof inspected at least one time per year! Making minor updates over time can prolong the life of your roof. Read on  to find out what you should watch out for!


Exterior Inspection Since inspecting the exterior of your roof may require you to climb on the roof and walk around, it's typically best to hire a professional to do this.
Examine all gutters and downspouts. Make sure that the drains are secured to the roof and free from debris. Visually explore your roof for damaged shingles. Look for shingles that are cracked, torn, bald or missing. Look around the chimney for any loose materials and any wear around the chimney pipes and vents. Note any rusty nails or flashings. Be aware of any moisture, rot or mold. These are signs of potentially damaging water wear. Look for shingle granules in the gutter…

Factors that Affect the Lifespan of Your Roof

Image
Asphalt roofs have a typical lifespan of 15-20 years. However, there are many factors that can affect how long a roof lasts. Many homeowners are surprised when their roof starts to show signs of wear before they expect. Today, our roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks would like to share with you a few factors that can affect the lifespan of your asphalt roof.


1. Installation
Even the best roofing materials can't do their job if they're not installed properly. Improper installation can significantly decrease the lifespan of your asphalt roof. A new roof is an expensive investment that you want to last as long as possible. That's why it's so important to hire a well-established, reputable roofer at the Lake of the Ozarks. Do some research and check references before hiring someone to install your roof.

2. Weather
Depending on the climate you live in, the lifespan of an asphalt roof will differ. Here in Missouri, we experience a variety of different weather events. F…

Asphalt shingles typically need to be replaced every 25-30 years or so. While metal roofing is a larger expense upfront than asphalt shingles, when you spread the cost over the life of the material, a metal roof could end up being less expensive in the long run.

2. Metal is Extremely Durable.

Does Snow and Ice Affect My Roof?

Image
With the cold temperatures and the snow and ice that we've already received here in the Ozarks’, have you thought about how snow and ice can affect your roof? As a homeowner, it’s important to understand how snow and ice can affect your roof to help avoid costly repairs. Read on to learn more from our roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks!


Excess Weight on Your Roof One of the most common issues with snow and ice on your roof is the added weight. That excess weight can put a great deal of stress on your roof. Over time, that stress weakens the integrity of your roof. While it is unlikely to happen in Missouri, where extremely heavy snowfall is minimal, the possibility of a roof collapse is also possible. This is usually the result of an already weakened roof, and that's why it's important to have your roof inspected regularly by a Lake of the Ozarks roofing professional.
Melting & Freezing Cycles Snow can damage your shingles by melting and then re-freezing into i…
