Roofing Replacement

What is the most common roofing system used today?

But the most common type of roof you see on homes today is an asphalt roof. An asphalt roof is a roof system made primarily out of asphalt shingles and other asphalt roofing components. The reason for its popularity is simply because it’s the most cost-effective type of roof for the average homeowner.

For a standard 3-tab asphalt shingle roof, that’s 25-years. As long as your roof has been properly ventilated and installed you should get pretty close to that 25 years of roof life.

What are the 3 signs your roof needs to be replaced?

  1. Your asphalt roof is about 20 years old.
  2. Your asphalt roof fails prematurely.
  3. Your asphalt room was damaged from a storm.

What about if you have a metal roof system?

A typical metal roof can last for 50 years or more. Compare that to an asphalt shingle roof which you can expect to replace about every 15-25 years.

Your roof is one of the most important and expensive choices you’ll make for your house. No pressure. If you’d prefer a more specific professional opinion if now is the time for  a roof replacement,  call our roofing team to discuss your home’s situation. 240-226-1920
