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: 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.
