1. How do I know when I need a new roof?
A new roof is likely needed when the shingles fail in more than one area, due to wind or leakage. Many homeowners are more proactive, and replace the roof when it starts to look aged. The average roof replacement occurs every 18 years.
2. How long does a full roof replacement take?
A full roof replacement can take as little as one day, or up to a week depending on the size and complexity of the home.
3. How long will a new roof last?
A new asphalt shingle roof will normally last around 20 years without any problems. Some survive for 30 years or longer, but beyond 20 years it is common to see patches or repairs have been performed. There are several variables that affect performance including climate, direct sunlight, attic venting, and moss/debris accumulation.
4. How do I decide what material roof to get?
Deciding on the type of roof to get can be a matter of preference, budget, function, or a combination of these factors. In our area, the two most common roof types are metal or asphalt shingle. It is probably best to speak to a knowledgeable roofer about which type of roofing is best for your home given your unique circumstances.
5. Will my roof be under any sort of warranty?
All roofs should come with a basic warranty from the manufacturer, as well as a guarantee on workmanship from the roofer. Our company offers a 10 year warranty on workmanship for reroofs and a 2 year warranty on new construction roofs. Our company is also able to offer additional product warranty protection on specific brands. Feel free to contact us with your questions.
