We got a new roof. Guaranteed 30 years.

And I thought "If I don't have to move, this is my dying roof. It's guaranteed for life." I'm 79.

1. That's what I thought on my last replacement and then came the hail. 'Hope you are luckier.

2. We got a 40 year roof about 10 years

ago and I thought the same thing. We have to replace the roof because of hail damage. Fortunately it was an insurance deal.

3. We bought a small bungalow last year.

Weíve been sprucing it up. New flooring, rain guttering, new kitchen, new double glazed windows, etc. Other than paint, I keep thinking itís the last time we redecorate. Iím 65, husband 72. We are trying to get it finished while we can still do the work ourselves. Itís close to complete.

4. We had ours replaced seven years ago.

It has a fifty year, parts and labor, warranty. At 66, I expect this to be my last roof ó barring weather issues.

6. I guess I'm good, since my shingles have a "Lifetime Warranty".

I asked the roofing contractor what that means, since my last roof lasted about 20 years.

He said "You ought to get about twenty years out of it".

Ah, marketing.

8. My 30 year shingles lost their

warranty because of improper installation. Learning a lot about roofs.
