New home almost ready for shingles. Need advice on whether to upgrade to 40 yr. architectural shingles instead of 30 yr. that the contractor normally uses.
Roof is somewhat complex, a combination of multiple hips and gables at 8:12 pitch, probably about 48-50 square.
I'm 44 years old and would like to outlive instead of replacing roof. Is 40 yr. worth extra cost?
