Every roof has an expected service life that determines its peak performance years. However, your roof could deteriorate earlier due to everyday wear and tear, especially if the seasons are particularly harsh in your area. But that’s not all that could affect a roof’s service life.


Billings Construction Group, one of the top roofing companies, discusses the factors you should consider to keep your roof healthy longer.


The area you live in is the biggest factor of all, since it determines the climate your roof will face daily. Right from the start, you should pick the materials that will last against the dominant weather conditions your home is exposed to. But if you find yourself with a roof made of materials that provide inadequate weather defense, it’s time to call our experts about replacement.

Thermal Cycle

Roofs get hot during the day and cold in the evening. As a result, your shingles expand and contract constantly. This is called the thermal cycle. It’s actually a normal occurrence with roofs. But the trouble is, low quality shingles break down easily. You should opt for high quality shingles like the products we offer to avoid roof damage that will compromise the integrity and service life of your roof.


It may seem unimportant, but your roof color has a say in determining the life span of your roof. Light-colored roofs trap less heat than roofs with dark colors. Even a commercial roofing system needs white paint to reflect heat rather than absorb it during the summer. And this makes a big difference for homeowners and building owners in dry and humid areas.


Lastly, the maintenance practices on a roof is a factor that affects its service life. Because without it, your roof wouldn’t last as long as the determined years of weather defense. You should treat your roof right the same way it protects you from outdoor weather.
