3 Year Old Composition Roof

Composition roofs come in all different types, but they all have to be maintained and cared on a regular basis. Care for asphalt shingles or composition shingles starts with a well care inspection by Roof Life of Oregon. We figure out what kind of shingles you have, draw out your home, look at where all the trees are, and where the trade winds come from. Based on that inspection, we’ll develop a maintenance plan for you to help you get the most out of your roof life.

On asphalt shingles, moss is a big deal and it develops in stages. The best stage to start a maintenance plan is when you can’t yet see the moss. But most people start when it moves into the unsightly stage. They call us and say, “the moss just appeared.”

Well, it doesn’t just appear; it just gets to the point where you can’t ignore it anymore. By the time the moss gets to its final and most aggressive stage, it’s taking your roof out. So you should definitely start maintenance before you see the moss growing.

It’s hard to spend money on well care when everything looks fine. I’ll be the first one to admit that. But if I take care of my twenty, thirty, or forty thousand-dollar roof and it holds up in the rainstorm, how much is that worth to me? I have some peace of mind knowing that Rooflife treated my roof with product that has made it healthier and stronger. Not only that, I have a warranty that covers my roof and helps to extend its life by up to fifty percent.

Asphalt shingles just need to be looked at every two or three years, based on your environment. If you live in a heavy tree area, we’ll want to check it every two years, even though we’ll still use the three-year product to treat it.

Regular care helps you maintain one of the biggest assets in your home: the roof. It just happens to be at the top. And my favorite motto is ‘start at the top and work your way down.’
