LESLIE: Irene calling in from Brooklyn, New York has a roofing question. What can we do for you today?
IRENE: I had my roof for 25 years and I heard you, the other day, saying on the radio that 25 years is more than enough for a roof, so …
TOM: (chuckling) Yeah. OK.
IRENE: I had one little leak, so I decided to change the whole thing.
TOM: OK. Well, you know, if you’re trying to decide between regular shingles and Timberline shingles, the Timberline shingles are just a laminated shingle. They last the same amount of time but they look different. You know, they are designed to maybe have a little more dimension, a little more depth. They can look like cedar shingles. They can look like slate tiles. They can look like clay tiles. They’re very attractive …
IRENE: (overlapping voices) (inaudible at 0:03:09.1)
TOM: … but there’s really no difference in longevity between those and simply a single-tab shingle.
IRENE: That’s all I needed to know because I don’t see my roof. It’s a high building.
IRENE: So, I’ll go for the cheaper one. (Leslie chuckles)
TOM: OK, Irene. Glad we could help you out. Thanks so much for calling us at 1-888-MONEY-PIT.
