Replacing a roof isn’t as exciting as a kitchen or bath remodel, but it’s a considerable home improvement investment.

A new roof is a once, maybe twice, in a lifetime purchase, so many homeowners aren’t too familiar with the process, the latest roofing shingles or even how to choose a roofer. We encourage homeowners to ask these import roofing questions!

There’s a lot more to reroofing your home than we can cover below in the Roofing FAQs, but these are the roofing questions we’re asked most frequently and a good place to start.

In today’s world, there are a number of great options to choose from when it comes to selecting the right type of roof for your property. The most popular options include asphalt shingle, metal, rubber and wood. At Green Brothers Roofing, we specialize in all roof types and will work with our clients to select the best products and styles for their properties.

Unfortunately, there is no simple way to answer this question. Like property owners themselves, every roof is different. The common “rule of thumb” is that a roof should be replaced around the 20 to 25-year mark. This is around the time when essential components of the roof begin to break down and fail. Some tell tale signs that it may be time for a new roof are leaks, missing shingles, discoloration and shingle curling. If you notice any of these issues, give us a call today to schedule your FREE roof inspection.

This question must be answered on a case by case basis. Call us today to schedule your FREE estimate.

If you dont, we’ll let you know that as well. Our goal is to provide every client with the best information, which in turn allows you to make the best decision.

We always do our best to provide quality work in a timely manner and will always be transparent with our clients on how long their job will take to complete.


Shingle discoloration can be frustrating. Nobody wants to see dark streaks or spots running down their roof, and we’re here to help.

Usually these issues can be resolved using specific cleaning products, but other times these can be tell tale signs of underlying issues. Give us a call today to schedule your FREE inspection.
