Q: What Should I Look For In A Roofing Contractor?
A: Once you’ve determined that you need a new roof, the most critical decision you can make is in which contractor to choose. A new roof isn’t inexpensive, but with the right contractor, you may have a pleasant, rewarding experience while getting a roof that will last for decades, for a good price. To avoid contractor scams and get the most out of your money, find a reliable local roofing company. Doing your research before hiring a roofer can help you avoid a disaster.
Q: How Many Times May Old Materials Be “Roofed Over”?
A: Removing old materials and starting over with new ones is the best option to replace or repair your roof. This is because it will allow the professionals to thoroughly inspect the structure of your roof and detect if any problems exist. If you decide to “cover over” your old materials, it is strongly recommended that you do so only once. Some localities do not even allow two layers, so the old material must be removed.
Q: Is There Anything I Can Do To Prepare For The Installation Of A New Roof?
A: There are a few basic things you can do to make the process of replacing your roof go more smoothly. First, clear any loose items from your shelves and walls. You risk causing unsecured objects to fall when roofing material is hammered. Clear your driveway and the area around your house as much as possible. Roofing materials may inadvertently fall into the driveway. Other that that, all you have to do is relax while a qualified roofing contractor takes care of the rest. Most new roofing projects are completed the same day, causing only a minor inconvenience, if any, to you.
Q: How Long Will My Roof Last?
A: It depends. A roof’s lifespan is determined by many factors, including the type and quality of materials used, the quality of installation, and the frequency of maintenance and inspections. The average roof in North America is built of shingles, lasting anywhere from 20 to 50 years. Metal and synthetic roofing materials are becoming increasingly popular and may last anywhere from 70 to 100 years. We do free roof inspections, and our salesperson will provide you with all the information you need about your new roof, including its expected lifespan, when choosing a roofing material.
Q: How Much Will It Set Me Back?

Please call us, and one of our certified sales professionals will come to your home, measure your roof, and provide you with a tailored estimate on the spot. They will go through your material selections and the unique demands of your roof and answer any questions you may have during that time.
Q: What Are My New Roofing Options?
A: For whatever home style, there is a range of new roofs to pick from. You can choose your material, color, and style depending on your demands and personal preferences. There are various colors to choose from for metal roofing, forged iron, classic shingles, RoofGuard, and more. When meeting with you we will go over the different quality roofing solutions available to you. Our roofing professionals can assist you in choosing the right roofing material for your home or business.
Q: What Can I Do About Shingles That Are Discolored? Is It Necessary To Replace Them?
A: Because of extreme humidity, algae, or direct sunlight, shingles can become discolored over time. Because the discoloration of your shingles will not compromise the integrity of your roof, you won’t need to replace it, if that is your only issue. Discolored shingles, on the other hand, detract from your home’s curb appeal. If you are curious about the options available for fixing discolored shingles, reach out to us today.
