Roofing

  1. Q

    How can I tell if my roof needs replaced?

    A

    There are many signs that a roof might be ready to be replaced. The first thing to take into consideration is the age of the roof. Asphalt shingles typically last between 15-25 yrs depending on several factors. If you have a roof that is over 20 yrs old, its generally time if you want to stay ahead of any major problems. Additionally, we always suggest homeowners inspect their roofs visually once a year. This can easily be done from the ground with a good set of binoculars. Looks for shingles that are curled on the edges, are missing the granules on the surface, missing and torn shingles and areas that simply look different from the rest of the roof. If you see these things, it's time to call a professional to get their opinion.
  2. Q

    How long will a new roof last?

    A

    This is a tough one. The biggest contributor is what the roof material is made of. Asphalt shingles will last on average about 20 yrs. This will naturally vary depending on the grade of shingles and even the brand of shingle. Metal roofs will usually last well beyond the 50 yr mark when properly installed. There are many other variables involved though. Installation techniques, extreme weather and roof maintenance are all things that effect the lifespan of a roof. However, we have found the single biggest contributing factor to the life span of a shingled roof is proper attic ventilation. In fact, most shingle manufacturers have a section in their warranties devoted to the topic.
  3. Q

    How much does a new roof cost?

    A

    Ahh, the million dollar question. The best way to get a solid estimate is to simply call your local trusted roofing contractor. Most reputable roofers will offer a quote at no cost, and with no obligation. Know that every aspect of your home, like shape, size, and location, will affect the price of your new roof, as will the material you choose.
  4. Q

    How long will it take to install my new roof?

    A

    In most cases, we can complete a shingle roof replacement in only one day. Due to the complex nature of metal roof installation, they usually take 3-5 days to complete correctly. However, there are many factors that come into play. Size, steepness, number of layers and complexity of the roof all play a part. We will always schedule & coordinate the project in a way to limit the amount of time the homeowner is inconvenienced, but we will never take short cuts to get it done quicker.
  5. Q

    Will I need to replace my gutters also?

    A

    Probably not. Often times roofing salespeople will tell you that your gutters need replaced with a roof installation...Its a way of them making more commission on the job. Sometimes its because their roofing crews are less than careful and cause damage to the existing gutters. If this happens it's no big deal because you've already paid to replace their damages...right? In our experience, most of the time the existing gutters are in good shape and we simply work around them. Sometimes they are in need of some minor repair and we can handle that for you as well if you wish. If you simply want new gutters, we can certainly help. Remember the old saying. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"
  6. Q

    Is there anything I should do before the work starts?

    A

    Roofing is very noisy and messy work. Especially during the tear off. Consider going out for a few hours once the roofing contractors start removing your roof shingles to avoid the noise and mess. Please keep pets in mind too. There is no way around it but we do everything possible to minimize the hassle and inconvenience of a roof install. We also provide a handy checklist a week or so before the work starts so you know what to expect.
