When purchasing a new house or re-roofing your current house, the materials used are 'rated' for a specified period of time. Depending on the materials used (generally asphalt shingles are used in Rochester, New York), the roof should last anywhere from 20-25 years. Just like everything else, trends change and there are many additional choices for selecting a nice looking roof. Trinity Home Renovations offers a ton of roof colors, styles and materials to pick from.
Roofing Tip: When you’re driving around the Rochester NY area, pay attention to other homes and see what they’ve used for their roof. Focus on the color and style of the roof as compared to the color of the home. Sometimes having contrast between the siding and the roof color can make a big difference.
It’s time to start thinking about a new roof when the lifespan of your current roof is reaching its peak and/or if you’re spending a lot of money on roof repairs. Just like a car, when the time comes that you’re spending too much on maintenance, it's time to find a roofing contractor and invest in a new roof.
Lastly, you should consider getting a new roof if the conclusion of a roof inspection indicates a different roof could save you money on your energy bill. A new roof can drastically increase the ability for your home to keep hot or cold air from escaping through the ceiling.
