Fourteen years, says a 2015 survey from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), is the median time home buyers expect to live in their homes. This is an important number, because the average lifespan of a fiberglass-asphalt shingle roof is 15 to 18 years. This means if you use Twin Cities roofers to install a shingle roof for your newly constructed or recently purchased existing home, you will probably be on to your next home before the roof needs replacing. This is only one of several advantages of using shingle roofing for your Twin Cities home.
Fiberglass-asphalt shingles (the composite nearly all modern shingles are made from today) are by far the least expensive roofing material at installation. Their economy up front helps make shingles the #1 roofing choice in America.
The economy of a shingle roof goes beyond its low installation cost. Twin Cities roofers, including the experts at Midwest Exteriors Plus, Inc., install more shingle roofs than any other type. This means our roofing crews are fast, efficient and completely familiar with proper installation. Your roof is not the learning laboratory for a radical new roofing method.
The same home inspectors who provided the average lifespan of shingle roofing point out that architectural shingles (the stylish kind with deeper cuts and strong profiles) can last 24 to 30 years. Some 23 percent of surveyed home buyers reported in that NAR report said they are “never moving.” If you are settling down in your Twin Cities home with plans to put down roots, Twin Cities roofers can provide you with a beautiful, long-lasting architectural shingle roof. You may not ever need another roof!
