A leaking roof could cause hazardous mold to grow within the interior of your home, causing health and safety concerns. The lifespan of an asphalt shingled roof largely depends on shingle weight, roof slope, sun exposure, shingle color (light colors absorb less heat and last longer) and climate. Replacing a roof could take anywhere from a few days to 2 or more weeks. To check for roof damage, walk around the foundation of your home regularly and look for pieces of broken shingles on the ground. Curled-up edges and missing or worn granulars on asphalt shingles are signs that a roof has experienced damage, and may need repairs or replacement.
