Roofing FAQ’s

Q: How can a home owner recognize when a roof system has problems?
All too often, roof system problems are discovered after leaking or other serious damage occurs. Periodic (twice-a-year) inspections can 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. Indoors, look for water stains on the ceiling, cracked paint, discolored plasterboard and peeling wallpaper as signs of damaged roof areas.

Q: What are my options if I decide to re-roof?
You have two basic options: You can choose a complete replacement of the roof system, involving a tear-off of your existing roof, or possibly  re-cover the existing roof, involving only the installation of a new roof system over the old roof. If you have already had one re-cover installed on your original roof system, we do not recommend an additional re-cover.  In many instances, building code requirements allow no more than one roof system re-cover before a complete replacement is necessary.

Q: My roof leaks. Do I need to have it replaced completely?
Not necessarily. Leaks can result from flashings that have come loose or a section of the roof system being damaged.

Q: Can I do the work myself?
Most work should not be done yourself. Professional roofing contractors are trained to safely and efficiently repair or replace roof systems. You can damage your roof system by using improper roofing techniques and severely injure yourself by falling off or through the roof. You may also void any warranty.

Maintenance performed by home and building owners should be confined to inspecting roof systems during the fall and spring to check for visible signs of damage such as cracked or curling shingles and cleaning gutters filled with dead leaves and other debris.

Q: How long can I expect my roof system to last?

The lifespan of a roof is based on many factors, including local climatic and environmental conditions, proper building and roof system design, material quality and suitability, proper application and adequate roof maintenance. Roofing product manufacturers offer a variety of warranties on their products. Take a close look at those warranties to see what responsibilities and financial obligations manufacturers will assume if their products fail to reach their expected lives.

Q: What will a new roof system cost?
The price of a new roof system varies widely, depending on such things as the materials selected, the complexity of the roof design and local building codes or home owner association requirements.  Keep in mind that price is only one factor, and it must be balanced with the quality of the materials and workmanship.

For each roofing material, there are different grades and corresponding prices. There also are a variety of styles and shapes. You need to look at the full product range and make a choice based on your budget and needs.

Insist on a contractor who is committed to quality work and provides a strong warranty.

Q: Can heavy snow damage my roof?
Yes! It is important to keep heavy snow off your roof, eaves and cleared out of your ridge vents.
