Debunking Common Myths About Roofing and Siding


When it comes to roofing and siding, there are many myths and misconceptions that can lead homeowners astray. At Bruno Roofing & Siding, we believe in providing our clients with accurate information to help them make informed decisions. In this blog post, we’ll debunk some of the most common myths about roofing and siding.

Myth #1: All roofs have a lifespan of 20-25 years

The truth is that the lifespan of a roof depends on various factors, including the roofing material, installation quality, ventilation, and weather conditions. Some roofs can last for 30 years or more with proper maintenance, while others may need replacement sooner.

Myth #2: Siding is just for aesthetics

This couldn’t be further from the truth. Siding plays a crucial role in protecting your home from the elements and improving energy efficiency. Quality siding materials can insulate your home, reducing energy costs and protecting against moisture damage.

Myth #3: You can install a new roof over an existing one

While this may seem like a cost-effective solution, it’s generally not recommended. Installing a new roof over an existing one can lead to additional weight and stress on the structure, as well as potential moisture issues. It’s best to remove the old roofing material before installing a new roof.

Myth #4: All roofing contractors are the same

Not all roofing contractors are equal. It’s essential to research and choose a reputable, licensed, and insured contractor with experience and a proven track record. At Bruno Roofing & Siding, we take pride in our expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to customer satisfaction.


By debunking these common myths, we hope to provide you with the knowledge and information you need to make informed decisions about your roofing and siding needs.
