Mount Laurel Roofing contractorLiving in South Jersey you know it gets really cold in the winter and hot in the summer often dictating how you maintain your house. If its dry for a long period of time you make sure your flowers are getting enough water, your grass is cut and there nothing out of place on your lawn.

Bad news, you can expect to get about 15-20 years out of a roof if its maintained and no major damage has occurred throughout its lifespan. Depending on where you live, your home will experience wear and tear faster purely based on your location. For instance, if you live in an area that gets a lot of snow and hail you need to make sure you are getting your annual roof inspections as you are more susceptible to roof damage.
You may be thinking what is hail damage and how does it hurt my roof? Most people might look at hail as an extension of snow and may think its slightly harder than snowflakes. The thing you need to keep in mind when it comes to hail is that it comes in many sizes. You wouldn't think of something the size of a quarter able to cause any damage, but when your hundreds of quarter-sized hail hitting your roof from high altitudes, it will lead to roof damage as it compromises your shingles over time making it hard to stand up to weather condition. Now thats just quarter-sized hail, but you can experience golf ball or baseball sized hail as well. This is where you hear of car windows being blown out and car roofs being damaged.
