The roof is one of the most expensive components of a home. When looking for a home it is important to know what type of roofing material was installed, when it was installed, and the current condition.
Types of Roof Coverings:
- Asphalt (architectural)
- Asphalt (3-tab)
- Wood shingles and shakes
- Metal roofing
- Clay and Slate shingles
Life Expectancy: 30 years
Life Expectancy: 20 years
Life Expectancy: 40 to 80 years
When asphalt shingles begin to lose their granular covering and start to curl, the shingles should be replaced.
