    • What is the average lifespan of a roof?

      The average lifespan of a roof will vary depending on what material it uses, how well it has been maintained, and the climatic conditions it faces. On average, roofs last 10-30 years.

      While some roofing materials last longer than others, the most vulnerable part of the roof is actually the underlayment. This typically has a lifespan of around 25 years and often needs to be replaced in roofs that use more durable, long-lasting materials.

    • How do I know if my home's roof is having a problem?
      Some exterior warning signs that your roof is in danger include missing or disintegrating tiles or a strange appearance at a distance, which indicates your roof is nearing the end of its useful life. Inside your home, if you notice leaks, discoloration near vents or fixtures, excessive moisture, or mold growth, you could be in urgent need of repairs or a roof replacement.
    • What do I do about a leaking roof?
      If your roof is leaking, it’s important to safely seal the leak with a tarp, if possible, and to remove any water that enters your home or building before it can cause permanent damage. Then give us a call so we can repair it as soon as possible.
    • What are the signs that I need a new roof?
      Some interior warning signs that indicate you need a new roof include starry beams of sunlight coming through your attic, dark stains on your roof or walls, and signs of mold or rot. Exterior signs include damaged or missing shingles, strange textures like warping or bubbling, damaged flashing, or shingle granules in your roof gutters.
    • What is the difference between a roof replacement and a reroof?
      During a roof replacement, your entire roof, from the deck to the underlayment to even the shingles, will be replaced. However, a reroof simply involves replacing a new layer of asphalt tiles over an existing one that is nearing the end of its useful life but which has no obvious problems.
    • How long does a roof replacement take and what is the cost?
      HomeGuide reports that in 2021, the average price to reroof an asphalt roof is around $450 per square. The average roof replacement takes two to three days to complete, depending on weather conditions.
