Re-roofing your home is a big decision, both from a timing perspective and financially. If you wait too long to make that decision, you could potentially cause more harm to your home. A failing roof can lead to mold, water leaks, and additional costly damage to the interior of your home. From a financial point of view, installing a new roof typically means a large outlay of money or new home improvement financing… Neither of these choices is very appealing to homeowners. Add to that, you have to somehow pick the best roofing contractor and hope that you have picked a responsible, financially stable, timely, and customer service-oriented roofing contractor. Consequently, for most people, it comes as no surprise that re-roofing your home can be a stressful yet unavoidable aspect of homeownership. Here at GoTech Roofing, we understand your concerns.

Honestly, all of the shingle manufacturers above have great shingles. Shingles come in 3 tiers of quality. The cheapest are the 3-tab shingles. These were very popular 15+ years ago. Nowadays, rarely do any professional roofers install these. The next level is architectural dimensional shingles. You can get these in 25, 35, and 50 warrantly grades. The final level is luxury shingles. These are the most expensive and typically start at 50 warranty periods. Luxury shingles are the ones to go for if you plan on staying in your home for more than 25 years. They are high quality, thick, and triple laminate dimensional shingles with three-piece laminated fiberglass construction. They are durable and strong, and come in many styles and colors.
As far as asphalt shingles go, the thicker the shingle, the longer it is going to last. Most importantly, you must hire a qualified experienced certified roofing contractor to do the installation. While it is typical for shingles to last between 20-40 years, the lifespan of your roof can be impacted by improper installation, complicated roof design, and long-term exposure to harsh weather conditions.
Improper roofing installation can leave your new roof vulnerable to leaks and structural damage that impair the shingles’ flexibility, durability, and waterproofing. This can mean you could be potentially replacing your roof after only 8 - 12 years. In addition, roofing manufacturers typically will not honor their warranty if the roof was not installed correctly by an experienced certified roofing contractor.
