How Often Should I Be Replacing My Roof?

Roofing Companies BarringtonReplacing the roof on your Chicagoland, home is a big investment, so you want to be sure you’re only calling roofing companies once it’s necessary. So, what’s that magic number of years your roof will last?

The answer isn’t so cut and dry. Different roofing materials will offer you more durability and longevity than others.

Asphalt shingles, one of the most common roofing materials, can last up to 30 years with regular maintenance. Some asphalt shingle types will last longer than others, so make sure you’re investing in the best asphalt shingles on the market, like the ones we at Krumwiede use for our customers’ asphalt shingle roofs.

Wood shake shingles can last up to 30 years as well, while slate roofs can last anywhere between 50 and a whopping 125 years, depending on the type of slate used for the shingles. Metal can last up to 75 years, and concrete tile clocks in at around 30 to 50 years.

Keep in mind that roofing lifespans vary from home to home, especially considering the level of care and maintenance that’s been put into the roof over the years. It’s always a good idea to care for your roof as best as possible to extend its life.

Do you have additional questions about your Chicagoland home’s roofing? Well, when it comes to roofing companies who care, Krumwiede tops the list! We’re always here to talk about your roofing concerns. Give us a call today to talk more about which type of roofing materials suit your home’s needs.

I purchased windows from Krumweide and they were installed last week. The windows are top quality and the installation process went very smoothly and quickly. Local permits and inspections were handled/arranged by Krumweide as well. I'm very pleased with my experience.
