Frequently Asked Questions
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. But many roofing problems aren’t visible from the ground and require a professional inspection to diagnose. If you suspect damage to your roof, the best course of action is to schedule a free estimate and let our qualified team members diagnose the problem and present the solution.
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 A Shingle Roof Replacement Take?
Our goal is to finish each roof replacement the same day we start it. However, depending on the size and accessibility of the roof, some roofs may take a second day. We will give you a projected length of the project during the initial free estimate appointment.
How Long Will My New Shingles Last?
Thanks to developments in technology, with proper care and maintenance, many new shingles can sustain natural wear and tear up to 50 years. The Owens Corning shingles we install come with a 50 year manufacturing warranty that covers an manufacturing defect that would shorten their lifespan.
How Much Will My New Roof Cost?
Many factors go into determining the cost of a roof replacement. The size of the roof determines the amount of materials needed, the slope and roof accessibility affect the amount of time and labor that are necessary, and the amount of finishing touches that are needed, like flashing and counter flashing, is different for every roof. Please schedule a free estimate appointment so that we can inspect your roof and give you a customized quote.
