Besides the evidence of an existing leak there
are several signs that will show if your roof needs replacing. Look
for signs such as curling or cracked shingles, granular loss or
patches where you can see the asphalt (Black) color. Missing shingles
can be an indicator that the roof may have outlived its longevity
because the shingles are no longer secured by the fastener.
How long will it take to shingle my roof?
This varies depending on size of house, number
of members on the crew as well as installation method and material
chosen. Based on the average size house having asphalt shingles
replaced, it should take two to three days for a three man crew
from tear off to completion of installation. The time from rooftop
shingle delivery until the garbage bins are picked up can extend
the time to approximately a week, pending weather.
Do I need to be home when you do the work?
Homeowners do not have to be home or take time
off work unless they choose. However contact numbers are important
in case of emergency or power failure etc. As a homeowner one should
have the piece of mind and confidence that they have chosen industry
professionals to complete the work needed, but should also feel
comfortable about asking questions during every step of the process.
Are there any extra costs aside from my
estimate I should know about?
The estimate provided should be as accurate as
possible based on the material and application methods chosen. Sometimes
amendments are needed during the construction stage to ensure a
quality roof system is applied. Rotted sheathing needing to be replaced
during tear off is an example of something that is not always present
during the initial estimate. With all amendments the homeowner should
be made aware as soon as possible.
Should all the accessories on my roof be
This depends on how long the accessories have been
on the roof and if they show any signs of damage. As a rule we believe
the accessories should be replaced whenever the roof is done because
the accessories have about the same life span as the roofing material.
Why does my quote say "Deck replace
extra if needed"? I don’t even have a deck!
This is in reference to your roof deck, which is
made of plywood sheets attached to the trusses of your home. Often,
when you get a new roof, the installers find rotting wood in some
areas and this must be replaced in order to have a strong surface
to attach the new roofing material onto. We can’t tell how
much, if any, rotting wood there is until the existing roof material
is removed, so we indicate this on our quote.
