The Lifespan of Shingles

The varying styles of roofs in Chicagoland all have various shingles, so not all roofs have the same longevity. Depending on your type of shingle, the lifespan will vary between 15 to 60 years.

  • Asphalt: 15-25 years
  • Wood shake: 30-50 boards range from pine to cedar
  • Metal: 40-60 years varying on copper, steel, or aluminum

Extreme Weather

Maintenance such as debris removal and inspections should occur seasonally; otherwise, issues may worsen. Some examples of extreme weather that damages roofs:

-Strong Wind and Tornadoes

-Blizzards, Thunderstorms, and Hail

-Even Seemingly-Innocent Fall Leaves & Tree Branches can damage your roof

When an overnight storm overtakes the exterior of your homes, often, homeowners insurance will cover your damaged property. Rest assured, Pro-Line works with your insurance company to assess property damages and file an efficient claim.

Improper Installation

Occasionally, customers stumble upon non-licensed, fly-by-night roofing companies, where unskilled roofing contractors slap on a roof without ensuring proper installation. Unforeseen problems occur in non-professional roofing installations. Improperly installed flashing and seals cause water to go under the shingles leading to leaks. Shingles that do not fit together correctly slowly damage the entire house. Unprofessional re-shingling can cause problems in the long run when the deck ages faster than it should.

Fortunately, Pro-Line Contractors has years of roofing experience and are licensed, bonded and insured to work on your roof! When you hire Pro-Line Contractors, you get the customer care of a local small business – dedicated to your satisfaction.

If I Have To Have My Roof Replaced, How Does That Work?

The first steps in a roof replacement are removing old shingles along with the nails and staples that hold it in place. After the shingles are gone, we remove the waterproof underlayment to check the roof’s very base, aka the seething or deck. Our contractors will professionally install brand new materials, guaranteeing your satisfaction. A new roof from Pro-Line will ensure no damages happen inside your home.
