1. What are the signs of roof damage?
Identifying roof damage varies depending on the type of damage. The easiest roof damage to identify can be seen from inside the house or attic when you have a leak. Other easy to spot damage can be seen on the shingles when they become cracked, torn, or even go missing. For a full read up on how to identify roof damage, click HERE.
Some roof damage can be hard to spot by an average homeowner until it is too late, leading to thousands of dollars of damage. That is why getting regular roof inspections is considered a standard home procedure.
2. My roof leaks; do I need to do a full replacement?
Not necessarily! A roof can often be perfectly functioning except for one little part, where the leak is located. By repairing just that section, you won’t have to replace the whole roof. However, if you have an old and failing roof, it may be time to buck up and get a full replacement.
3. What types of roofing materials are available?
There are various roofing materials available for homeowners to choose from, depending on their wants and needs. There are pros and cons to every type of roof; for more information, click HERE!
4. How long will my roof last?
Your roof’s lifespan is generally dependent on three main factors: the material, the maintenance, and the environment. Some roofing materials are more durable than others and will have a naturally longer lifespan. Proper care of the roof will also increase its lifespan. However, some environments are more brutal than others, meaning that the roof will sustain more damage per year. On average, the lifespan of a roof is a minimum of 15 to 20 years, although some roofs can last up to 200 years! For more information on roof lifespans, click HERE!
5. How much does a roof cost?
There is no one answer to this question because every house is different. It all depends on the house’s size, the materials used, the labor involved, and more. Speaking with local roofing contractors to get a collection of quotes will provide you with a proper estimate for your specific cost.
6. How often should I get a roof inspection?
Generally, roofing specialists recommend getting a roof inspection once a year to determine and repair the damage. It is recommended for industrial buildings with a large roof surface area to get inspections twice a year, generally after winter and summer.
7. How do I choose a roofing contractor?
