There is one problem shared with almost every roof…and that problem is they will all need to be repaired or replaced at some point in time. Roof repairs are most common with wood shake shingles, tile and traditional asphalt shingles. roofing tiles get damaged by hail and falling debris. Wood shakes age and eventually become brittle and asphalt tends lose their protective granules. In the end, the once waterproof barrier is now breached and the building envelope is compromised leading to a host of problems that can arise. Finding an experienced, licensed roofer that can do annual inspections is highly recommended.
