Answers From the Area’s Best Roofing CompanyMany homeowners know one thing for sure about their roof: that is the most important component of their home. However, there are many questions surrounding roof repair and replacement procedures, as well as the roof structure itself. Here are the most common questions we get asked by our customers.
Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED A NEW ROOF?
It may seem difficult to decide when to replace your roof, but if you know what to look for, your roof will often let you know that it’s nearing the end of its lifespan. Look for the following telltale signs:
- Excessive shingle granules in gutters and washed out of downspouts
- Curling, cupped or missing shingles
- Moisture damage on your ceilings
- Cracked or discolored interior drywall
- Decaying shingles
- Visible cracks
- Wind or hail damage
- Rusted or missing flashing
- Increased energy bills
WHAT KIND OF ROOFING MATERIAL SHOULD I CHOOSE?
Choosing which type of roof is right for you will depend upon numerous factors, including your budget, style and needs. Before making your choice, be sure to consider how long each material would last. Some materials, although initially more expensive, require less maintenance and therefore last longer. An asphalt shingle roof might last 20 years, but a metal roof can last more than 50.
