Q: How do I know when I need to replace my roof?
A: There are several ways:
Age – If your roof is around 20 years old, it is probably nearing the end of its useful life. There is some variation in life due to color, sun exposure and ventilation under the roof.
Appearance – If you have roofs that have broken off, or look buckled or warped, or have lost some of the granule surfacing, it is probably time to replace it.
Leaks – Not the best way to find out. By the time you see evidence of water leaking inside the house, it has probably been leaking for quite a while prior to that. This leaking can cause expensive structural damage to the rafters and the boards on top of them, not to mention the damage to your ceilings and walls. It is usually much less expensive to replace a roof before you see leaks.
Q: How much does a new roof cost?
A: The cost of your roof will depend on its size, shape, slope and the type of material you choose to install. Different roofing materials provide different levels of protection and service life.
Q: How long will it take to complete my roof?
A: On average, it takes one to two days . The exceptions are roofs that are larger than average, roofs that need extensive structural repairs, or roofs that require specialty materials.
We arrive on each job site with the manpower, expertise and materials to complete the job in a timely manner. However we will never compromise quality to complete a job more quickly.
Commercial roofs do not have an average time frame due to many varying and complex requirements for commercial buildings. We’ll give you an expected time frame for completion as part of our written proposal.
Q: Can roofs be installed in the winter?
A: Yes. Cold weather does not hurt the materials. The limiting factor is the comfort of the installers. If the weather is sunny, with little wind, and the temperature is reasonable, we can work. If there is ice or thick snow on your roof or exceptionally cold temperatures with high winds, we may not be working.
