Roof replacement is a major decision for homeowners. Not only is it among the most expensive home improvement endeavors, it can also be quite time consuming and inconvenient.
Your roof does give you a great return on investment, however. It’s estimated that homeowners can recoup almost 63% of the cost of roof replacement due to an increase in home value. It’s a better value than adding a bathroom or installing a back up generator.
How often to replace a roof depends on a number of factors:
The quality of the materials
The installation process
How well it’s been maintained
Where you live
Slate, copper and tile roofs can last more than 50 years, while wood shake roofs last about 30 years. Fiber cement shingles last about 25 years and asphalt shingle/composition roofs last about 20 years.

Types of roof replacement and roofing materials
There are a few factors to consider when contemplating home roof replacement.
Where you live
The roofing replacement contractors at Concord Roofing & Construction can offer guidance about the different roofing materials available to you, the associated costs and long-term maintenance.
For example, wood shake shingles can be used for steeper pitched roofs but not low-pitched roofs.
TYPES OF ROOFING MATERIALS
Asphalt composition shingles. Inexpensive but less esthetic, asphalt shingles are one of the most durable and cost effective roofing materials on the market. An average sized asphalt shingle roof can be torn down and re-roofed by an experienced crew in a few days. Not all asphalt shingles are equal, however, so it’s wise to read up on the subject before entering into a home roof replacement contract.
Wood shake. Exceptionally beautiful, wood shake shingles are durable, storm-resistant and energy efficient. They are more expensive and cost more to install but add extra value to your home.
Metal. The home roof replacement contractors at Concord Roofing & Construction are experts at the installation of metal roofs, a specialty most roofers don’t have. Properly installed, a metal roof should last as long as the house, sealing out water, surviving high winds, and easily shedding snow should it occur. Metal is resistant to fire, mildew, insects, and rot.
Slate. Among the higher-end roofing options, slate is highly attractive and adds a great deal of value to your home. There isn’t a roofing material on the market that has a classier, more celebrated appearance. Slate roofing tiles are also offered in varying sizes and thicknesses, as well as a wide range of colors.
Rubber or faux slate. Faux slate roofs offer the look of real stone, but lighter in weight and at a much more reasonable price. It earns the highest rating for impact resistance and can withstand hail and ice storms. It is also engineered to be highly fire resistant and does not spread fire.
HOME ROOF REPLACEMENT
How often you should replace your roof depends on a number of factors. Here are some things to consider when considering a home roof replacement:
Resale value. A new roof almost pays for itself. Your house will be easier to sell and you’ll get a higher asking price.
Return on investment. You can expect an average of almost 63 percent ROI.
Appearance upgrade. Old, damaged and stained roofs can ruin the overall appearance of your home. A new roof increases curb appeal. There are even enhanced shingles with different colors and textures.
Longer warranties. Newer, more durable materials translate into warranties beyond the typical 15-20 years.
Energy savings. Cool roof technology reflects solar heat and reduces cooling costs. Some asphalt roof shingles even have an Energy Star rating.
Building inspections. If you’re planning to put your home on the market, the roof matters. It is one of the most visible features inspectors and appraisers look at. A damaged roof can prevent a sale from happening.
Curb appeal: As much as 40 percent of your home’s curb appeal is linked to your roof.
Cost effective: A new roof allows your HVAC system to work more efficiently, saving you money on your energy bills.
Health: A new roof can help prevent the growth of mold and mildew.
Safety: An old roof can may collapse or cause part of the home to become unstable.

Prepare for noise. Plan to be out of the house during work hours if possible. There will lots of noise from people walking on the roof and hammering.
I had a great experience with Ted and Concord roofing. They installed a roof, replaced damaged aluminum patio covers and gutters. Ted communicated well and responded quickly to my texts/calls. The company responded extremely fast (early morning next day!) for warranty work. I feel very good with my decision to have chosen them. I highly recommend them as they are a legitimate company that’s been in the business for a long time.
After contacting a number of possible roofers, I found Concord Roofing and am extremely pleased with the results. As an older adult the entire process seemed overwhelming….roof, gutters, screens, fence repair, etc….well, Teddy Hogue took all the responsibility on his shoulders enabling me to know each job would get done; I was extremely pleased with his scheduling each job, getting it completed, and keeping me informed when things were to happen.
In March 2017, Concord Roofing and Construction replaced the roof on our home. This was due to hail damage and we were helped at every point with insurance and other issues. Doug Robinson was outstanding in his attention to our questions and requests.
We had a great experience with Concord Roofing & Construction. Concord was highly recommended on BBB, Angie’s List, Yelp and Google and we agree! Ted has excellent customer service and sat down with my wife and patiently explained the repair process. He worked closely with our insurance company and replaced the roofing and repaired and stained the fence, the chimney siding and the shed. His crew ( especially Junior) was meticulous and covered our pool, flowerbeds and kept all construction material and nail away from our house. They cleaned up every day and did a thorough check upon completion for nails and debris. They used high quality materials and worked within the budget. We were impressed and recommend them very highly. Thank you Ted!
Working with Adam @ Concord Roofing & Construction was a breeze. There as a little bit of a wait to get our work started due to all the hail damage in the DFW area, but once it was our turn, Adam and his crew showed up on time and got the work done right! I would highly recommend Concord!
Our roof was damaged from hail storm and I called Ted Ted was very easy to work with because he did exactly what he said, and took care of all the insurance paper work for me. This was helpful because we live out of state and our rental property needed repair right away. Not to mention that Concord Roofing did a fantastic job on replacing my roof with new materials on time as promised. I would recommend Concord Roofing to anyone! A+
