Our FAQ about roofing gives a general overview for frequently asked for by our customers.
Can My Roof Be Repaired or Does It Need to Be Replaced?
If your roof has been damaged by a storm or is simply old and worn out, you may need to replace it. If the roof only has a few minor problems, like missing shingles or a leak, repairs may be all you need. Repairing the roof is often a less expensive and less invasive way to fix a roof than replacing it. The roofing contractor will be able to determine whether repairing or replacing the roof is the best option for your home.
Can I Repair the Roof Myself?
Generally speaking, roof repair and replacement is a dangerous task that should be left to a licensed, trained, and experienced professional. However, in some cases, you may be able to perform certain repairs yourself.
How Long Does it Take to Replace or Repair a Roof?
The time needed to complete a roofing project depends on numerous factors. These include the size of the roof, the type and condition of the roof, the materials used, and the number of experienced and capable workers employed on the job.
What Type of Roof Should I Get?
When you’re thinking about a new roof, you should think about what you need. There are a few different options for roofing materials. The three main types of roofing materials are wood, tile, and asphalt shingles.
What Will It Cost to Repair the Roof?
The cost to repair the roof will depend on what type of work needs to be done. It could be a minor problem with shingles, or the whole roof could need to be replaced. If it is just a minor repair, the cost will be lower. However, if the whole roof needs to be replaced, then the cost will be much higher.
How Long Will My Roof Last?
That depends on the type of roofing materials you choose, the maintenance you provide, and the quality of the installation. Asphalt shingles typically last 20 to 30 years. Metal roofs can last 50 years or more. Tile and slate roofs can last 80 to 100 years, while cedar shingles can last 100 years or more.
What Causes a Roof to Wear Out?
Roofs will naturally wear out over time. Weather conditions and wear and tear are the main factors that contribute to their degradation. When there are holes in your roof, this will allow the rain to soak into the roof deck and the insulation, which will then damage both.
Should I Have the Old Roof Removed Before the New One Is Put On?
This is often a highly debated topic. The truth is that it depends. If the roof is very old, and you have a great deal of time and patience, taking it off before the new one is on the home can be a good idea. It will allow you to get a good inspection of the underlayment, rafters, and other structural components. If it is new, then there is no need for this. If you are not sure whether you should remove the old shingles, you will want to contact a roofing company for advice.
