How Do I Know I Need to Call a Roofing Contractor?

New roofs are supposed to last 20 plus years before they need replacing. The cost for new roofs or roof repairs depends on the materials used on your roof. For example, an asphalt roof is one of the most used roofing materials, and they last at least 20 years. Asphalt shingles are very durable and cost-effective. Asphalt shingles stand up to the harsh Texas weather and are what most residential homes and companies purchase.

If you have a metal roof, know that these roofs last your lifetime. Roofing materials have specific lifetimes. The type of climate you live in has a significant bearing on how long your roof lasts.

The following types of weather significantly affect your roof, causing damage over time.
