How Does Roof Pitch Affect Roofing Prices? For starters, the steeper the slope on a roof, the more shingles it will take to cover it. Asphalt shingle costs might be double on a 12/12 compared with a 4/12 roof. This is an important consideration if you're building a new home.
Potential signs that your roof may need to be replaced:
- Shingle edges are curled or shingle tabs are cupped. ...
- Bald spots where granules are missing.
- Cracked shingles. ...
- Your roof is at least 20 years old; while many shingles today are produced for durability, many factors can accelerate the aging of shingles.
When you're not using your power tools, secure them with short lengths of rope or Bungee cords. Keep hand tools and supplies in a 5-gallon bucket hung on a roof bracket. Carefully position ropes and extension cords so they're not underfoot; they're very slippery. Stay off slate and tile roofs.
