Whether normal wear and tear or unexpected storm damage occurs, roof replacement is an inevitable part of owning a property for an extended period of time. And, when the time comes, having complete confidence in the roofing contractor you hire is a must. At A1 Home Improvement, our roofing experts bring decades of experience, knowledge and expertise to every project, no matter what the circumstances may be. 


Depending on the material used for the roof, the lifespan can range on average anywhere from 15 to 50 years. However, there are several factors that come into play when assessing the condition of a roof and the factors that may shorten the expected life of the materials. For example, one of the most significant factors in roof deterioration is lack of maintenance. Unbeknownst or overlooked by many property owners is the fact that every roof should undergo an annual inspection. This inspection will help you to determine the current condition of the roof. Knowing if any shingles have lifted or are damaged allows you the opportunity to perform necessary roof repairs before the condition worsens into something more significant and costly. 


Below is a generalized expectation of different roofing materials and the expected lifespan:


  • Asphalt and Architectural Roof Shingles: 15 to 30 years
  • Clay Roofing: 50 years
  • Concrete Tile Roofing: 50 years
  • Wood Shingle Roofing: 30 years
  • Metal Roofs: 20 to 25 years
  • Slate Tile Roofing: As one of the most durable roofing materials, slate tiles are known to last around 100 years.


A second common situation requiring property owners to require roof replacement comes with storm damage. Living in New England, regardless of how meticulous you may be with roof maintenance, storms can arrive quickly and leave behind devastating damage. At A1 Home Improvement, our roofing experts provide start to finish emergency roof storm damage service. Our team will come to the property to inspect and provide the initial assessment. We will apply a temporary tarp to prevent further damage from occurring and assist you with filing an insurance claim. Working closely with your insurance company, the A1 professionals will help get your claim approved* and move forward with the necessary roof replacement quickly, efficiently and with the highest levels of craftsmanship to ensure your property is once again protected. *It is important to note that most insurance companies will cover the cost of roof replacement if the damage is the result of an act of nature. However, every circumstance differs, making it more important to work with a team of knowledgeable professionals.


Regardless of the cause for roof replacement, when a building or home requires such service, it is imperative that you call in a team of roofing contractors that you can trust – and quickly. From gutter inspection to lifted shingles, water penetration to storm damage, the team at A1 Home Improvement will determine the root of the problem and provide you with reliable, honest recommendations to ensure the problem is fully remedied. 


Annual roof inspections are an integral part of maintaining your roof’s integrity.


Even if you believe your roof is in impeccable condition, if it has been over a year, scheduling an inspection is always in your best interest. Why? Well, because sometimes the minor problems are unseen and require professional assistance to view the locations that can not be seen from the ground. And, all too often, these unattended same minor problems become significant concerns that lead to costly repairs and sometimes total roof replacement.
