When should you replace your Charlotte or Concord, NC roof, instead of just repairing it? As with cars, when weighing the cost of repairs versus the cost of replacement, you have to consider the age of the roof and whether you might soon need to replace it anyway. An asphalt shingle roof should last about twenty years, and the repair costs start to go up in the second decade.
The first thing the roof installer will do is remove the old roofing material to get at the deck underneath. A good roof installer will do this without leaving any shingles or other debris lying around. The installer puts a water shield over the deck to keep rain from getting in through the nail holes. Then the installer lays the shingles so as to minimize the number of exposed nail heads. All this should take one to three days.
