Most of the time we don’t think about the condition of our roof, unless there is something visibly wrong with it. When your roof is doing what it is supposed to do, there isn’t a reason to give it a second thought, but just because you can’t see damage, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. The life expectancy of an asphalt shingle roof is between 25 – 30 years, but it can be a lot shorter if you don’t maintain it properly. If you can see damage to your roof, such as missing shingles or a roof leak, you should get the roof damage repaired as quickly as possible. However, if you haven’t had your roof checked out recently or if there has been a wind event, it might be worth getting someone to look at your roof for damage. The sooner you can address a damaged roof, the less expensive the repairs will be. At Gonzalez Painters & Contractors we offer free assessments of your roof and if we find damage, we offer a no-obligation quote on roof repairs in Apex NC.
