Another positive aspect of asphalt roofing is the low maintenance it provides. Any damages throughout the life of the product are easily repaired. The strips used to create the roof have mineral granules embedded into the material. A sure sign that these strips need replacing is when you find these granules have washed away. A handy tip when replacing shingles is to ensure you carry out the work on a warm day. The heat makes the strips more flexible, which reduces the risk of them cracking.
