Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are the 5 most common types of roofing?
  • Asphalt
  • Ceramic Tile
  • Slate
  • Metal
  • Shake
2. How long does a roof replacement take?

It can take anywhere from 1-5 days to complete. That is assuming no complications will arise.

3. What is a roof inspection?

A roof Inspection is a comprehensive analysis of the health of your roof.

It gives roofing professionals the chance to identify any deterioration in your roof and make repairs as needed.

4. What causes roof wear and tear?

The main causes of roof deterioration are severe weather, temperature, and algae growth.

Dark colored roofs also tend to wear out quicker than light colored roofs.

5. How is the old roof removed before the new one is installed?

Although it is possible to layer shingles on top of one another, it is usually beneficial to strip the entire roof of all shingles to avoid keeping any curling or deteriorating shingles on the roof.

6. What type of roof is best?

There are several factors that go into making a decision about what type of roof to install.

Different roof materials, their lifespans and their costs are all things that should be taken into account before the final decision is made.

7. How long will my roof last?

Most traditional asphalt shingles are designed to last 15-20 years, but materials like metal roofing can lengthen the lifespan to three times that. Slate, Tile, and copper roofs can last upward of about 50 years.

The lifespan of a roof depends on many factors including:

  • Roofing material
  • Shingle Thickness
  • Local Weather & Climate
  • Workmanship/Installation
8. How can you find a roof leak?

Water leaking in from your roof can travel a long distance before becoming apparent in your attic or ceiling.

That’s why it’s usually best to trust a professional to find the source of the leaky roof and determine the best solution.

9. Do I Need a Full Roof Replacement or Just Repairs?

Knowing the extent of your roofing damage will allow you to make the best decision for your home. Some roofing damages can be restored with simple repairs, whereas others require your entire rooftop to be replaced.

Your roof inspector should inspect every inch of your roof to ensure that all your roofing issues are addressed, and nothing goes unnoticed.

10. Do You Have A Clean-Up Process Once The Installation Is Complete?

Cleaning up after a roofing project is vital for you and your family’s safety.

Installing a new roof is quite a messy project. You, therefore, need to find out if your roofing company offers this service.

If they just install your roof and leave, you’ll likely spend the next couple of days trying to get your home back to its normal living conditions.
