    Greg Maddox Company constructed a building at a cost of $2,200,000 and occupied it beginning in January
    1988. It was estimated at that time that its life would be 40 years, with no salvage value.

    In January 2008, a new roof was installed at a cost of $300,000, and it was estimated then that the building
    would have a useful life of 25 years from that date. The cost of the old roof was $160,000.
