If you’re getting a new roofing system for your home, you’ll need to make sure that it will be resilient. This way, you know that it will be able to withstand the extreme weather conditions, while keeping your home dry and damage-free for longer. But what exactly makes a roof resilient? The trusted roof replacement company, Pawcatuck Roofing Co., Inc. discusses some of the factors you’ll need to consider.
- Wind Resistance. You’ll need to be wary of high wind speeds because they can fast-track the roof’s deterioration, allowing for problems that shorten its service life. To ensure your new roof can remain impervious to damage, choose shingles that are impervious to wind resistance. Pawcatuck Roofing Co., Inc., for instance, offers high-quality asphalt shingles from top brand, GAF®. Thanks to Advanced Protection® Technology, these options have passed the industry’s two toughest wind resistance tests: ASTM D3161, Class F, 110 mph, and ASTM D7158, Class H, 150 mph.
- Impact Resistance. The fact is that roof impact damage, whether caused by hailstorms or wind-blown debris, can lead to massive leaks, broken shingles and excess granules loss, among others. If you want your new roof to be resilient, it should be able to provide excellent resistance to impact damage. Check out the GAF Timberline® AS II Shingles offered by your premier GAF Master Elite® roofing contractor, Pawcatuck Roofing Co., Inc. They come with UL 2218 Class 4 impact resistance use thanks to their proprietary SBS modified asphalt formula that allows for superior, rubber-like flexibility.
- Proper Ventilation. When a roof has sufficient ventilation, the temperature in the attic can remain cool and consistent. This prevents excess heat and moisture from building up in the space and encouraging mold growth and rot, which can compromise the roof structure. Proper ventilation also means that the trapped heat is expelled outside instead of rising up and causing premature aging in the shingles overhead.
