Default Re: Estimating roof age

Wow, I guess I'm the only HI out there that has been giving their clients the guess-timated roof age of their prospective home. I'm always telling my clients how old their roofing material appears to be.

I can say, that I'm pretty good at guessing the age of asphalt. There have been many times where the listing Realtor looks at the disclosure or listing and will tell me that my guess is right on. I'm usually correct within a three or four year window.
