While a lot of our customers have flat roofs because they live in one of Baltimore’s many and varied row houses, you should know that we also do shingle roof replacement if you have a standard pitched roof.
If your roof is 20-25 years old, it may be time to start thinking about replacing it. This is the average life expectancy of a shingle roof. If you’ve noticed missing shingles, a lot of shingle granules washing into your gutters, or other problems, you need to call in one or more roofing contractors to take a look.
While roof repair at this stage can be a short-term solution, you need to plan to replace your roof in the next few years. You may even get a reduction in your homeowner’s insurance premium if you tell them that you have a new roof. That’s because older roofs are at risk for leaking or blowing off in a storm, leading to costly insurance claims.
Your shingle roof replacement cost will depend on the size and pitch of your roof, as well as the type of shingles you select for your new roof. We use asphalt shingles from some of the top manufacturers such as GAF.
Some of style your options include:
Strip shingles/3-tab shingles are your basic flat shingles, and are the most affordable. They’ll last about 25 years.
Architectural shingles are thicker than 3-tab shingles, and have a 3-dimensional appearance resembling wood shake shingles. They can easily last 30 years. Because of their aesthetic appeal and middle-of-the-road cost, architectural shingles are the most popular shingles.
As the name implies, luxury shingles are the highest quality shingles on the market. They’re 3 times as thick as 3-tab shingles, and cost at least twice as much. But they can last up to 50 years. They’re a good option for new homes and if you live in a high-end neighborhood.
We have shingle options available in a variety of styles and colors to suit your tastes, HOA requirements, and historic district ordinances.
As we mentioned, the size type of roof you have will greatly affect the cost of your shingle roof replacement project. Shingles are suitable for every type of pitched roof except a flat roof. Common roof types include:
In general, the steeper the pitch or angle of your roof and the more angles and joints it has, the more expensive your shingle roof replacement will be. The labor and materials costs can go up substantially if you have multiple roof elevations with multiple ridge lines and valleys.
