Keeping Your Roof Intact Manchester NH

Many things can affect a roof's lifespan. Location and materials make a difference in longevity; take them into consideration in your assessment. If you live in a wet, humid region and there are plenty ofshade trees around your property, your roof may suffer from moss growth.
