How Long Does Asphalt Shingling Actually Last?

As long as your asphalt roof is properly installed and your attic is ventilated properly, then you will get as close to the manufacturer's lifespan. But there are of course other factors that determine the lifespan of a roof, too, such as the weather and which direction the roof faces. As well as how often you get roofing maintenance services done, which is a service we provide.

Roofing Warranties

When you get a new roof installed, there is likely the chance for roofing warranties. We can help recommend the best warranties for certain roofs, since we know how long some of these roofing systems should last. If there is a possibility of an enhanced warranty, then you will be able to take advantage of it. An enhanced warranty is when all of the roofing components come from one specific manufacturer in order to form a complete roofing system. It is not uncommon to get a 50 year non-prorated enhanced warranty when you get an enhanced warranty. So, in a nutshell, an enhanced warranty can be a lifetime warranty.

However, the warranty is also as good as the contractors installing the roof. When you turn to NYC General Pro Roofing, you will have a team of roofer who will get the job done right. And make sure the roof lasts the lifetime of its warranty. When we install a new roof, the old roof is torn down to its decking and all of the new asphalt roofing shingles will be professionally installed.

Invest in a Quality Roof

As with any new roof, it is not cheap. Which makes it even more important to consider it as an investment. Pay the extra money for higher quality roofing materials. Skimping out on a few bucks now could majorly cost you in a few years.

When you pay for cheaper materials, it will show in the finished product. We are expert roofers, but cannot do anything to make the materials better. The installation will be top-notch, but that only goes so far if your materials are not up to standards. It may seem like a big spend now, but spending more money for a quality roof will go a long way in the future.
