While the average lifespan of a house is 50 to 100 years, the average lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof (the most common type in the United States) is about 25 years. With that mismatch, your home may easily be due for a replacement. If you’re interested in a roof inspection and estimate call Centennial Construction at 615-785-1181. We supply high-quality roofing jobs that you can trust.


Hoping for 25 years – at least for 25 repair-free years – of roof life may be hoping for too much in this area. We have extreme temperatures, frequent rain/hail, and far more than a scattering of storms – all factors that cause roof damage.


Our Centennial Construction team is an industry leader that you can trust to take care of your roof, including installation as well as maintenance and inspection. We are professionally certified to install and repair/maintain a variety of roofing systems, including asphalt shingles, metal, tile, and slate.

What Should Your Roof Look Like?


A house’s roof accounts for a big part of your home’s area. At Centennial Construction, we spend substantial amounts of time thinking about how a roof preserves your property’s safety, and therefore your safety and comfort. Nonetheless, attractiveness is an important factor in your choice of roof type and material; it’s a huge part of your house, so it is a major part of your home’s style as well as safety.


Most people want a roof that is dissimilar enough from the rest of the exterior to provide interest and balance; if everything is the same shade of brown, for example, the house may look like a lump rather than a solid, livable structure.


Asphalt shingles come in a variety of colors as well as color styles: solid colors (no variation) and blends (heathered or more starkly varied).


General principles:


  • Single-story homes usually look best with medium-toned colors, so the roof doesn’t seem too large for the height of the house
  • Multi-level homes look best with darker shingles to balance the height of the house
  • OTOH, a steeply pitched roof that is darker than the house can be overwhelming
  • Selling your home is usually easier if the roof color fits in with the rest of the roof colors in the rest of the neighborhood – riots of color work better in clothing than in neighborhood housing photos
  • Roofing colors should integrate well with the color of your home’s exterior walls
  • While the factor in heat absorption and heat loss is insulation, the color of your home’s roof does affect the temperature in your attic, so lighter colors make sense in hot, sunny climates


We’ll help you review the choices so you can decide what best fits your budget and your style. At Centennial Construction, our number one goal is your complete satisfaction.
