The life expectancy for a roof can range anywhere between 10 to 40 years, depending on the proper maintenance it receives. There is a multitude of factors that go into how long your roof can last. Proper care and maintenance can mean a life expectancy difference of up to 10 years more. Garabar recommends that you keep on eye on these 5 areas to ensure you get the most of your investment.

Installation

It is essential to ensure that your roof was installed by a reputable, licensed, and insured roofing contractor. The roof you are investing in is something that you want to guarantee will hold up through fluctuating climates and Florida’s famous hurricanes. If a roof is not installed correctly, it can lead to potentially serious issues like sagging or leaking. Not only does this decrease the life of your roof, but it can lead to structural damage throughout the entire house or building.

Roofing System

To ensure that your roof will last as long as you need it to, invest in quality materials for your roof. There are several viable options for quality materials. The most popular roofing material in America is the asphalt shingle because it offers the best trade-offs among beauty, durability, energy efficiency, and durability. However, when it comes to longevity in Palm Beach County, asphalt shingles pale in comparison to tile and metal roofs, which can last up to 45 years. The summers in Lake Worth can be brutal and having a roof that can stand up to the heat is critical.

Weather

While Garabar can’t control the weather in South Florida, but we can help you protect your roof from its harsh conditions. Extreme weather like rain, wind, and heat can take a toll on your roof if you don’t take the proper precautions. Be sure to do a monthly self-inspection of your roof to guarantee these weather conditions aren’t tarnishing the longevity of your roof. Fortunately, we use roofing products that are designed to deliver active resistance to harsh UV rays.

Maintenence

Almost all significant roof damage starts as something minor and inexpensive to repair. If you notice wear and tear on your roof, be sure to have it inspected routinely to ensure there are no avoidable issues to address that could turn into more expensive problems. We have trucks on the road offering free assessments in Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Boca Raton and beyond so you are never too far from our help. 

Proper Ventilation

Excessive heat is one of the most common reasons a roof can need repair or replacement sooner than expected. To avoid this damage, invest in a roof that offers UV protection and guarantees that it is properly ventilated, so your roof stays as cool as possible. Not only does this keep your roof in good condition, but it can also help lower your utility bills.
