If you are thinking about getting a roofer,
you probably have a lot of questions

 

Homeowners often neglect their roofing system until it begins to leak or other serious damage occurs. In most cases, roofing issues can be discovered way before major (and expensive) problems happen. If you notice cracked, warped or missing shingles, broken flashing, loose seams, or large amounts of shingle granules in the gutter, it’s time to call a roofing contractor. Cracked paint, peeling wallpaper or wall coverings, and discolored plasterboard can also indicate roof damage. Periodic inspections can help uncover potential problems and allow you to address them before they become a major investment.
There are a few ways to determine if it’s time to replace your roofing system.
Age: Roofing systems generally last around 2 decades. If your roof is approaching 20 years of age, it’s near the end of its useful life.
Leaks: If you see evidence of water leaking inside to your home, it probably has been leaking for quite a while. Water can damage rafters, plywood sheathing, ceilings, walls and more. Extensive structural damage can create a huge problem for homeowners. It’s often cheaper and less involved to simply replace the roof before it begins to leak.
Appearance: Shingles that have begun to curl, break, or warp are a good indication that it’s time for a reroofing service.
It depends. If the leak is simply caused by faulty flashing or a small section of roof that has been damaged, then you will most likely only need to repair the source of the leak. If, however, the entire roofing system has failed as a result of poor installation or subpar materials, then a new roof installation is appropriate and often necessary.
Roofing work is generally not a DIY project. Professional roofing contractors are trained and benefit from years of experience to safely & effectively repair or replace your roof. An untrained homeowner can actually harm a roof with improper roofing techniques and could even harm themselves if the right tools & safety equipment are not used. Simple maintenance tasks like inspecting a roof during the spring to look for broken or crack shingles & cleaning out gutters filled with debris are suitable for most homeowners but should still be done with care. Most DIY roofing projects end in additional costs & headaches for the homeowner, so they are best left to trained & experienced professionals.
Although it may seem advantageous to install new shingles on top of your old roof because it’s cheaper, faster, and requires less labor, you could be setting yourself up for future costs (and headaches). Unless your current roofing system is completely problem free and only features a single layer of functioning shingles, your new roofing system may fail way too soon. Many roofing contractors may be willing to simply nail new shingles on top of old shingles, but we always advises stripping the old materials complete off, all the way down to the deck, and then adding the new materials. Any defects, vulnerabilities, and potential problems in the plywood deck or truss system will go unnoticed unless you de-nail & re-nail. Here are a few situations where you will need to remove the old roof before completing a reroofing service: 1- Shingles are missing, curled, split, or mossy. 2- The roof decking is sagging due to rot or deterioration. 3- The new shingles are lighter than your current roofing shingles. (This will cause all of the old bumps & ridges to show through the new roofing materials.) 4- Your current roofing system has more than one layer of shingles.
The right roofing company will be experienced, committed to quality, and have a trail of happy clients across the area. A quality contractor will always meet building codes and requirements and have strict standards for installers to adhere to. Make sure your contractor carries GAF Certification.
