Is it time for a new roof?

Most homes in our area have an asphalt shingle roof. The following are signs that the life of such a roof is nearing its end:

  • Coarse sand-like granules in gutters or on the ground under the roof’s drip edge which are coming loose and no longer protect the shingle
  • Shingle edges that are beginning to curl upward
  • Brittle shingles that begin to crack or break loose
  • Deteriorated flashing at the edges of the roof and at skylights, chimneys, and vent pipes, which can cause major leaks

If you are ever not sure whether you need a new roof, that is okay! Just give our team a call and we can inspect your roof and make whatever recommendations are best for you. If your roof is in good condition, we will tell you and maybe will schedule a follow up for years down the road!

What materials should be used?

Here are some factors to consider

Material cost

  • Asphalt shingle: Start at $50 per square (100 square feet), un-installed
  • Laminated shingles: $60-$80 per square, uninstalled
  • Wood shingles: from $100 per square, uninstalled
  • Metal: steel and aluminum, $100-$260 per square, uninstalled; copper, $250-$500 per square, un-installed
  • Clay: $250-$500 or more per square, uninstalled
  • Slate: $300-$600 per square, uninstalled
  • Concrete: $150-$250 per square, uninstalled for standard types; $350-$500 per square for lightweight types
  • Rubber composite: $295-$400 per square, uninstalled

Life expectancy of common roofing materials

The life expectancy of a roof varies among different roof materials. Other factor that influence the longevity of a roof are material color—a dark roof will absorb more heat, thus shortening the lifespan; angle of roof slope—higher pitched roofs tend to last longer; and orientation of the house—a south-facing roof slope will get more sunlight and thus have a shorter life.

  • Asphalt Shingles, 3-tab: 15 to 18 years
  • Asphalt Shingles, architectural: 24 to 30 years
  • Metal roofing: 30 to 45 years
  • EPDM rubber roofing: 10 to 16 years
  • Concrete tile: 35 to 50 years
