That’s what we heard over and over again at our booth at the Home and Garden Show last week. According to statistics, the national average lifespan for an asphalt shingle is 12 – 15 years (though this includes roofs made before asphalt shingles were composed of more than 50% limestone!). But if you had sat at our booth as long as well did (nearly 100 hours in 9 days!), you’d have heard 100’s of people disgusted with the fact that their roof has failed in less than 9 years. They were disillusioned by their “35 year” roofing warranty when they found out that the warranty was a pro-rated warranty that’s only worth pennies on the dollar after the first 5 years.
While this is nothing new to us, as we see it during our client appointments regularly, next year we’re taking a video camera to record people’s comments about their prematurely failing asphalt roofs so you can hear it for yourselves. But you’re probably already saying the same things since you’re on our Website, right? Steel roofing….the last roof you’ll EVER buy, and it’s carries a NON PRO-RATED WARRANTY for as long as you own your home, transferable for 40 years!
