What are common causes of roof damage?
In our region of the country, extreme weather like hail, wind, heavy rain, snow, ice and even air pollutants expedite roof deterioration. Other issues come from improper flashing installation and poor maintenance. Any of these issues can contribute to leaks, water damage and structural degradation, but our skilled team can assess your situation and offer an affordable and efficient solution.
How do I know if I need a new roof?
There are several things you can look for that may indicate it’s time for a new roof. Some telltale symptoms of roof deterioration include missing or cracked and curling shingles, blistering and peeling paint, leaks in your attic after a heavy rain or water stains on your interior walls or ceilings. Shingle, sheathing or siding decay and higher than usual energy bills are also signs that you may need roofing services.
How long does it take to replace a roof?
Roof replacement depends on several factors, including the size of the roof, the roofing materials, the weather and the labor intensity. Typically, residential roof replacement takes one to two days and commercial roof replacement takes a bit longer, but our talented estimators can give you a more definitive timeframe after a thorough roof inspection.
