Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY ROOF NEEDS TO BE REPLACED?

A few common ways to tell if your roof needs to be replaced are:

  • Curling shingles (the edges of your shingles are curled or the tabs are cupped)
  • Bare spots on the shingles (granules are worn off)
  • Broken or cracked shingles
  • It appears worn or highly discolored
  • Water spots on your ceiling (indicates a leak)

CAN MY ROOF BE REPAIRED OR DOES IT NEED TO BE REPLACED?

This depends on a variety of factors for each roof. Often times, a leak can occur around metal flashing where components of the roof are installed (vents, pipe jacks, chimneys, valleys, etc). If the shingles are in good shape and it is just not water tight in these areas, it can usually be repaired without a full roof replacement. If there are large spots where the shingles have begun to curl or they are worn down, typically a roof replacement is the best option.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS WITH AN INSURANCE CLAIM?

I HAVE DOGS AND SMALL CHILDREN. DO I HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT NAILS AND DEBRIS IN MY YARD AFTER MY ROOF IS REPLACED?

Our roofing crews not only canvass the property with magnets to pick up metal debris after a roof is installed, but they also use tarps around the perimeter of the dwelling during shingle removal to ensure your property remains clean. In addition, we use protection on siding, hot tubs, landscaping, etc. to ensure nothing gets damaged. We take pride in leaving each property as pristine as it was before we roofed it.
