How often do you need a new roof? That will depend on the roofing material in question. Some roofing materials, like Slate & Copper, can last over 50 years. However, asphalt shingle roofs should be replaced every 15-20 years. Whatever the lifetime of your roof materials, it is vital that you understand the roof's life expectancy and get a roof replacement before the roofing actually fails.
Brad L. of Janesville, WI knew to do exactly this and called My-Pros when his roof was on the precipice of failure. Craig, our Pro, arrived quickly to provide a free roof replacement cost estimate and, with Brad's approval, we quickly got to work. As with every roof replacement, we started by stripping the existing layer of roofing shingles down to the roof decking before installing brand new quality roofing shingles. In this case we installed CertainTeed Landmark shingles in the color Mission Brown. We also installed a new ridge vent to prevent the roof from aging prematurely. Brad was quite pleased with the result and can now rest assured that his home is protected by a durable replacement roof.
