There’s a reason why asphalt roofing is losing the popularity contest. It just doesn’t last that long! Many homeowners expect to get 20 to 25 years out of a new asphalt roof but asphalt content in today’s shingles have fallen to an all-time low, which means lower asphalt content equals lower quality.

That is why metal roofs are gaining in popularity.

When it comes to our current real estate market, I enjoy reading about the trends and patterns as much as possible. It’s always good to know as much as you can on this subject. This is especially true if you find yourself getting relocated and having to buy or sell in a pinch.
