Roofing Blog: We Answer your Roofing FAQ's
Q: How do I know when I need a new roof?
A: Missing shingles, leaks in your home, and the age of your roof are all common indicators that your roof should be replaced. If your home is reaching the 15 year mark and you are not experiencing leaks in your home it would still be a good idea to be proactive with a roof replacement. Missing granules, buckling of shingles, and moss are all signs that it’s time to replace your roof as well.
Q: How much does a new roof cost?
A: Every roof is unique, therefore prices will vary depending on the size of the roof, style, shape, pitch, removal, materials, skylights, and labor. Replacing your roof is a huge investment and there are financing options that offer easy, affordable and no hassle options.
Q: Should I replace just a section or the entire roofing system?
A: The best way to achieve a properly functioning roof is to replace the entire roofing system. A roof consists of different components that protect your home.
Roofing system is made up of:
- Leak barrier protection: Ice water shield is a self adhesive waterproofing roof underlayment that shields against water and ice.
- Synthetic roof deck protection: Synthetic underlayment is applied as another layer of protection between the roof deck and shingles which helps keep moisture out of your home.
- Starter strip shingles: Prevents shingles from blowing off your roof.
- Shingles: Asphalt shingles of your choice installed.
- Attic ventilation: This is essential to a roofing system and allows your attic to “breathe” properly. If not installed, energy bills can spike through the roof.
Q: How often does a roof need to be replaced?
A: A roof typically lasts between 15-20 years, however depending on the maintenance, materials installed, and the contractor who installed it, it can last longer or less.
Q: What do I need to do to prepare for a roof installation?
A: Clearing the areas around your home and the driveway can give your contractor extra space when they arrive with work vehicles, equipment, and materials. It can also allow contractors to thoroughly clean the areas of debris from the roof replacement process.

Q: Is a new roof worth the investment?

Therefore, if you are thinking of listing your home up for sale it would be a good idea to replace the roof. A properly installed roof and attic ventilation also can help lower energy bills.
