Frequently Asked Questions

Do You Offer Financing Options?

We understand that paying for a new roof can be a challenge. This is why we have partnered with BB&T (now Truist Financial) to offer homeowners a seamless process for obtaining the funds for their roof replacement. Through this partnership, there are multiple loan options available to help you fund your roof project, including credit cards, a personal loan, or a home equity loan.

We are proud to offer this partnership as a resource. This option offers $0 money down and 0% interest for the first year with no predatory rates or surprises.

What Designer Shingles Do You Install?

We install GAF designer shingles, Owens Corning designer shingles, and Certainteed designer shingles. Our designer shingles are available in many different colors, and styles that imitate a variety of roofing materials including natural slate and wood shakes. These shingles bring an authentic, unique look to your roof and home.

We also install Davinci slate shingles,which are engineered to be lighter and more durable than natural slate, and offer wind, impact, and fire resistance for your roof.

Can I Reuse My Old Shingles?

In most cases, the old shingles are worn out and can’t protect your roof any longer. We do offer the option to add a new layer of shingles over your home’s existing roof, rather than tearing off the old shingles first. The team member who completes your estimate can determine if this is a viable option for your roof.

How Long Will My New Roof Last?

Due to developments in material technology, most new shingle and painted metal roofs can sustain natural wear and tear up to 50 years with proper maintenance and care. Most of our materials also come with a limited warranty that lasts 40-50 years.

Unpainted metal roofs can last 100+ years with proper maintenance and care. However, when a metal roof is painted, the lifespan is reduced to about 50 years.  This is because the baked enamel paint used to achieve color has a projected lifespan of about 40 years until it begins to peel and fade. Once this happens, the roof will need to be repainted or replaced in order to restore its appearance.

Will My Homeowners Insurance Cover A Roof Repair?

Homeowners insurance can be complicated. While our team at Cenvar Roofing is knowledgeable, we can’t know the ins and outs of each individual plan, so we recommend calling your insurance company to check. However, you can find a step by step guide to roof repair claims through homeowners insurance on our blog.

How Much Will My New Roof Cost?

Many different factors affect the overall cost of a roof replacement, including the shape, size and slope of your roof and the amount of finishing touches, like flashing, counter flashing and ventilation units, your roof needs to function properly. The total cost is also affected by the price of the specific roofing material you choose. During your free estimate appointment the sales representative will measure your roof, take these factors into account and provide you with a customized quote.

How Long Will A Roof Replacement Take?

The length of time needed to replace a roof varies. Our goal is to finish each roof replacement the same day we start it. However, depending on the size and shape and material of the roof, it may take longer. We will give you a projected length of the project during the initial free estimate appointment.

How Do I Know My Roof Needs To Be Replaced

In some cases, there are telltale signs, like a leak, or missing or damaged shingles that indicate a roof repair or replacement is needed. Loose granules on the roof or in the gutters are also signs that the shingles could be damaged. If an area of your roof has a spongy texture when you’re walking on it, the roof likely has damage. But many roofing problems aren’t visible from the ground.  If you suspect damage to your shingle roof the best thing to do is schedule a free estimate. Let our qualified team members diagnose the problem and present the solution.
