Over time, the materials used for the roof are exposed to high temperatures causing damage to the shingles from the expansion and contraction by changes in temperature from morning to night and in changing seasons. This expansion and contraction in the roof material is the cause of damage in the majority of roofs, which vary depending on the sun, rain and the winds. This gives most roofs only a life of between 20 to 30 years. This means a roof should be reviewed or inspected at least once a year.
