Q: Can I fix my roof myself?
A: While some homeowners may be mechanically inclined, it is not recommended to do so for a number of reasons. Safety is the biggest concern. Climbing a ladder and walking on a roof are very dangerous and serious injury will occur if there is a fall. It is important to know that roofing is a trade and skill that takes years to learn. So, while you may be able to buy many of the materials and tools to perform a job it is best left to someone with experience.
Q: How can I recognize if my roof has issues?
A: There are many indicators that a roof needs to be serviced. The main indicator is leaks and stains on ceilings. Other signs could be missing shingles, granule loss, cracking shingles and the age of the current roof. If you believe your roof may have issues, it is best to have the roof inspected by a qualified professional. Your roof much like your car and HVAC systems require routine maintenance.
Q: My roof is leaking. Do I need to completely replace it?
A: This is on a case by case basis. Generally speaking, most roofs can be serviced or repaired if there is still life left in the shingles. At some point, a homeowner needs to weigh the cost of repairs against the cost of a full replacement. In addition to cost considerations, a homeowner may want to consider how long they plan on living at the current residence, age of house and the frequency of the repairs needed. The best advice is to have a qualified contractor perform a rooftop & attic inspection.
Q: What are my options if I decide to replace my roof?
A: Many material styles and color options are available including Asphalt, Cedar, Slate & Metal. Most newer residential homes have asphalt shingles installed while older homes have more traditional cedar, metal and slate roofing.
Q: How long will my new roof last?
A: Older or traditional style 3-Tab roofs last about 20-25 years while Architectural & specialty shingles last 30 years- lifetime depending on the shingle that is chosen.
Q: What kind of warranty can I expect?
A: First, it is important to understand that you have two warranties with your project- Material & Labor. The manufacture provides a material warranty against manufacturing defects while the contractor provides a warranty for the workmanship which ranges from 1 year-Lifetime.
Q: What will my new roof cost?
A: Obviously, many factors affect the price including the style and pitch of the roof surface, size of job, ventilation, rotted wood and materials chosen. Most contractors offer a free estimate and can review your project and help you with choosing materials.
