Do I need a new roof?

To determine if you need a new roof, a roofing contractor will  need to come visit your property and do a thorough inside and outside inspection of your roof. The contractor will look for certain key areas that will determine if a new roof is needed.

How much will a roof replacement or new roof cost?
In calculating the potential cost of the project, the roofing contractor takes several matters into consideration: 
  • Size of the property 
  • Difficulty of removing the old roofing system 
  • Materials needed for the task at hand 
  • Certain property features that will require to be worked around like chimneys, skylights, venting, etc. 
Every property is different, so every roofing project will vary in pricing. 
How can I recognize potential roofing problems?

Problems with your roof are typically discovered after leaking or other serious damage occurs. Undergoing routine inspections, recommended twice a year, can often uncover cracked, warped or missing shingles; loose seams and deteriorated flashings; excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters or downspouts; and other visible signs of roof system problems. While indoors, look for cracked paint, discolored plasterboard and peeling wallpaper as signs of damaged roof areas.

My roof leaks, does it need to be replaced?

Not necessarily. Leaks can result from flashings that have come loose or a section of the roof system being damaged. A complete roof system failure, however, generally is irreversible and a result of improper installation or choice of materials or the roof system installation is inappropriate for the home or building.If you’re experiencing a leaking roof, it’s important to schedule your free consultation to let our roofing experts asses the damage.

Can hail damage my roof? Can I see the damage from the ground?
Possibly, yes. If your area has received hail large enough to possibly cause damage to your roof, you may want to examine other objects at ground level before calling your insurance company or pulling out your ladder. Hail strong enough to damage a roof will also cause damage to nearby cars, wood fences, shutters and/or exterior siding.
Another thing to look out for is if there is a significant amount of shingle granules appearing at the end of downspouts. This may indicate potential damage; however, granule loss, in and of itself, does not prove hail damage. Majority of hail bruising is about the size of a nickel and is virtually impossible to see from the ground.
When is the best time to start a roofing project?
There is no official “roofing season” however there are some things to consider when planning to potentially replace your roof. Environmental factors such as wind, ice, and flooding can greatly impact how quickly and effectively roofers are able to complete the job. For this reason, most customers opt to complete their roofing projects during warmer, dryer months.
I’m moving. Why should I be concerned with the roof?
A great deal of a home’s curb appeal is the condition and aesthetic of the roof. When preparing to sell your home, you may encounter some trouble in having people bid on your property if your roof is in poor shape. Most buyers are on a budget and would prefer to not spend money on major repairs directly after purchasing a property. Replacing your roof before you sell can greatly assist in avoiding these issues.
Why do I need to hire a professional roofing contractor?
Safety: Thousands of injuries and even deaths occur in the United States every year from individuals falling from their home, usually being a tumble off of their roof or slipping from a ladder. While certain things around the home can qualify as a do-it-yourself type of job, roofing is not one of them. Having a highly-trained team tackle your roofing needs, means the job will get completed in a safe and timely manner.
Saving Money: Updating your roofing on your own may lead to several unexpected costs and fees. Without a professional, you may unintentionally violate your roof’s current warranty. Even worse, the work may be completed improperly resulting in expensive repairs and replacements.
