Badgerland Exteriors Q&A

How long do roofs last?

In Wisconsin, asphalt shingle roofs typically last 15-25 years depending on the type of shingle installed. Because of the diverse weather conditions faced in Wisconsin, an architectural shingle (laminate) will likely last longer than 3-tab shingles (fiberglass). Badgerland Exteriors installs Atlas Pinnacle Pristine architectural shingles most often because of the durability, impact resistance, and color selection.

How long have you been in business?

Owner, AJ Stoffels, started Badgerland Exteriors in 2009 after working in the roofing industry for multiple years. Badgerland Solar, the newest division of the company, is rolling out in the summer of 2024.

My roof may have storm damage. What's the first step?

Call Badgerland Exteriors or fill out an inquiry form on our website. A rep will get on your roof to inspect for any wind or hail damage. If evidence of hail damage is found, the homeowner will be encouraged to file an insurance claim. The Badgerland Exteriors rep should ideally be present at the insurance adjustment to share findings and advocate for the appropriate coverage.

Shingles vs. Metal Roof? What are the pros and cons?

A new roof can be one of the largest purchases homeowners can make. It’s important to get all of the facts. 

 

Asphalt shingles are less expensive and may have a shorter lifespan (~15-25 years), however, a high quality architectural shingle will likely be more dent-resistant than metal if a hail storm passes through. 

 

Metal roofs are more expensive and may have a longer lifespan (~50-60 years). Metal roofs are long lasting, more environmentally friendly, and are typically lower maintenance. On the other hand, they may fade or rust over time, and they may be noisy during rain and hail storms.  

 

Finding the right contractor to install a metal roof is crucial to ensure all seams are sealed properly to prevent leaking. It is important to check your insurance policy when considering a metal roof because if the aesthetic is affected by hail damage dents, there may not be coverage since the integrity of the roof still stands.
