How Long Does A Roof Last?
While a shingle roof can last anywhere from 25-years to 50 plus years, it really depends on the material and how well it's installed. Metal roofs can last well past 50-years with proper care. A slate roof can last up to 100-years. Shingles are the most common in Maryland but even with a 50-year shingle or a "Lifetime" shingle, there are a few factors that significantly affect the longevity of a roof.
Three-Tab Shingles 18-25?
Unfortunately, we see too often that a three-tab shingle roof, which is supposed to last 25 years, tends to breakdown and needs to be replaced around 18-years. Of course, there are good situations where they last up to 25-years but it's good to realize that it will most likely need a lot of help around year 18 or 20.
Architectural Shingles 30-50?
While Architectural shingles will be the longest-lasting asphalt shingle for your roof, it is sadly all too common to see these roofs start to lose their usefulness around year 30, even though they might be a 50-year shingle. Often this is due to things like extreme conditions, poor ventilation, and poor workmanship.
How Much Does A Roof Cost?
The cost of replacing a roof is determined by measuring the square footage of the roof and accounting for all the unique aspects of your roof such as the steepness of the slope, penetrations, and walls that need flashing, skylights, type of walls that are being flashed to and more.
High End, Third-Party Pricing.
The Cost vs Value report gives you an idea of what it costs to replace your roof based on contractors all across your region. They gather reports from thousands of contractors to bring you these numbers. According to their report, in 2020, a roof replacement on a 3,000 sq ft roof, with 25-year shingles, the basic accessories, and two skylights that are average in size could cost $24,700. BUT This depends on a number of factors like products used, accessories, the difficulty of access, etc.
Since there are so many variables, we are only able to give a ballpark price. Townhouses alone can easily vary in size between a 600 square foot roof to 1,000 square feet. So pricing for a townhouse could be between six thousand to twelve thousand. Single-family homes can also vary in price significantly, going anywhere from twelve thousand to twenty-five thousand. These are of course ballpark numbers because of all the different components that can change the price.
