Similarly one may ask, how do I estimate the cost of a new roof?

Home Size and Design Affect Roofing Replacement Costs Roofing is calculated in 100 foot squares. To figure out the approximate number of roofing squares in your roof, simply take the total square feet and divide by 100. For example, if your roof is 2,000 square feet, 2,000 divided by 100 equals 20 squares of roofing.

How long does a 30 year roof really last?

The truth is, a 30-year shingle will not really last 30 years. The expected service life of a 30-year product, if properly cared for, is approximately 25 years. If it's not cared for properly, that 30 year shingle will only last 12 to 15 years. That's one of the big misconceptions in the roofing marketplace.
