When you purchase roofing materials, you trust dependable roofing brands to provide estimates. For example, Certainteed claims their asphalt shingle roofs can last for more than 30 years with impeccable protection and efficiency. However, some homeowners found their roofs to have failed right after ten years.
Different factors affect the overall lifespan and protective capacity. The manufacturer can try its best to make premium roofing materials, but it will depend on the following.
The Terrifying Power of Weather
Heavy rainfall can increase the risk of roofing damages. Unforeseen pooling water can cause immense pressure on roofing materials. Consequently, your roof can suffer from water damages if you leave these damages unattended. Snow, wind, and heat can cause enormous problems in the future too.
Manufacturing Guarantees Aren’t 100%
All manufacturing facilities of the best roofing manufacturers do their best to ensure high-quality roofing materials. However, it’s impossible to eliminate a problematic batch of materials, 100%. It’s genuinely unlucky to get a batch of lemons, but the likelihood is still possible.
Labor Quality by Contractors
You might have excellent roofing materials from Certainteed. However, if you’re working with run-of-the-mill, non-certified roofers, you’re going to have questionable roofing quality. The roofing material can only do so much to protect you, but labor makes up 50% of your roof’s durability too. Always work only with certified, dependable Calgary AB roofing contractors.

Storms are usually accompanied by fast-moving and strong winds that wreak havoc along their path. These winds are one of the most common causes of roof damage in residential and commercial structures.
The fact that roofs are installed to protect you and your home against weather elements like rain doesn’t mean that your roof cannot sustain any water damage. While roofs are rarely damaged by rain alone, existing vulnerabilities such as missing tiles, cracked shingles or improper installations may cause water to leak into your roofing structure and home.
If your home is in the vicinity of any large trees, you’re at a higher risk of possible property damage when a storm hits.
Hailstorms are a common weather occurrence that hits different cities, especially during spring. They cause damages worth billions of dollars to homes and businesses. The reason why they are so dangerous is because they cause major damage to roofs, windows, sidings and just about anything that is outside. Regardless of the type of roofing material you use, hailstorms can create small or large fractures in the roof shingles or tiles and end up weakening the entire roof. (Continued)
