So when is the right time to schedule an inspection for your roof? This is a question that many homeowners have as they contemplate improvement projects around their property. The roof is your home’s most important feature structurally. Because of this, regular inspections of your roof are needed, especially in areas of the country with more extreme weather patterns.
The most common roofing material used in the United States is the asphalt shingle. It provides a good value and quality roof protection for 15 to 20 years in most environments. The majority of homes use what is called a three tab shingle. An upgraded shingle is becoming more common called an architectural shingle. Both types are made from a fiberglass mat that is impregnated with asphalt and stone granules to make it waterproof and give it color.
