American roofs is one thing I haven't quite figured out yet. Where I come from roofs on single houses are done from either metal, or ceramic tiles of some sort. They all last decades. My grandfather's summer house was done with fiber/cement sheets some 50 years ago, his next door neighbor who built at the same time has painted galvanized steel - that needs to be repainted occasionally, but it's still the original roof. So, a new roof every 25 years sounds like a scam to me.
