“Roofing shingles are one of the most common types of materials (for roofing) and are definitely at the lower end of the cost spectrum. Material and labor costs are quite reasonable and with good maintenance this roof should last 15 to 20 years. Homeowners can save money by scheduling their projects during the slow season in early spring or late October (before the bad weather hits).”
