There are different kinds of roofing. Some last longer than others, some are easier to replace than others, and some cost more than others. A good residential roofer should be able to work with any kind of shingle or other roofing. The good news is that asphalt shingles, the most popular kind of roofing, are fairly cheap, and shingle repair is not too complicated. The bad news is that asphalt shingles can be damaged by a variety of different things.
Wooden shingles are surprisingly resistant to rot and insects, if they have air circulating above and below and they’re washed and oiled from time to time. As with asphalt shingles, shingle repair mostly involves replacing individual shingles and shakes as they suffer damage. There’s one complication — if the roof is old enough, the shingles may have been made and planed by hand, which will make them hard to replace.
