For decades, asphalt shingles have been the most common roof covering system for residential roofs, and this is due to the fact that it is affordable and, moreover, offers a good value for money. Although, in recent decades, other options such as metal have gained in popularity, asphalt roofs are still the most common.
If installed correctly, an asphalt roof will protect your home for about 12-17 years. Although this can be a short-term solution compared to materials such as metal shingles that last over 50 years, ceramic tiles (70 years) or slate (over 100 years), the very good price of bituminous shingles often weighs heavier than long-term protection.
If you want to make your asphalt roof last longer, you need to collaborate with a professional San Antonio roofer, who have the necessary expertise to give you the best advice. In general, they refer to the proper maintenance of the roof, which will prevent premature degradation, but also to options for renovating the roof that could add a few years to its original lifespan, and cost only a fraction of the price you would have to pay for a roof replacement.
