Chicagoland Roofing Contractor in Naperville, IL
Your roof is one of your home’s largest exterior areas, and it can show as old, worn or poorly maintained. If your roof is an aging eyesore, or if it’s been damaged in a storm, replacing your roof is one of the best ways to instantly ensure safety, increase the curb appeal and enhance value of your home!
Why Might You Need A New Roof?
The simple answer is to protect your home. Roofs are the unsung hero of your home, taking the brunt of the blazing summer sun, wintry ice and snow, and even high winds and hail to keep your home intact and your family safe. When your roof begins to fail, it exposes your home to the elements, resulting in mold and rotted materials, and most often leads to interior damage. More importantly, a failing roof may not be secure to protect families during severe weather.
A professionally-installed roof using premium quality asphalt shingles today offer warranties as long as 50 years, and standard quality shingles last 15-20 years. Unless you’re planning to stay in your home indefinitely, that’s a pretty good lifespan for such an integral part of your home.
Roof deterioration can result from a variety of things, including:
- Age – at some point it simply stops working!
- Missing, loose, curling or buckling shingles that let moisture in
- Poor quality shingles used in original installation
- Storm damage – wind, hail and ice can wreak havoc on shingles
