The average lifespan of many roofs can be as long as twenty years and some will last twice that long. But roofs in hail and windstorm prone areas must be replaced every seven years on average! That can cost you plenty!Architectural shingles

When it’s time to replace your roof, Carolina Storm Roofing will show you several varieties in numerous attractive colors. Try to take advantage of the specials to upgrade your shingle towards one that is more resistant to hail and high wing damage.

It will save you money in several ways: will help to keep insurance premiums from increasing, will protect your home and property and a better shingle will help you avoid the out-of-pocket costs that a new roof requires of every homeowner, like your deductible and upgrade costs.

In addition to the advice from experts at your Charlotte Roofing Company, ask your Insuror if your provider has any suggestions of what grade shingle to use on your replacement roof. Most national insurors will have brochures or websites with guidance on “high wind” and hail-resistant shingles. And almost all of them support the insurance research in South Carolina.

In general, a 30-year architectural, laminated shingle will outlast a 20-year standard asphalt, 3-tab production shingle. And realtors and home designers agree, the better shingle looks much better for your “curb appeal” should you ever wish to market your home.
