Done-Right Roofing can Help You Decide When it’s Time for a New Roof
Just like people, asphalt shingles gradually change with the passage of time. Signs of this aging process may appear as early as the first couple of years, during what is often called the curing phase. At first, you may notice small surface cracks or a few small blisters.
These changes will not affect the ability of the asphalt shingles to protect your roof and are an anticipated part of the aging process. During the stable phase, these signs of aging will slow down dramatically. The duration of the stable phase may last 20-30 years, but is dependent on many factors, including the construction of the asphalt shingles, the condition of your roof and roofing ventilation, and the slope of your roof, as well as workmanship.
Near the end of the expected life of asphalt shingles, the aging process begins to speed up. This is what is called the final phase, during which most homeowners start to think about replacing their asphalt shingles.
