Frequently Asked Questions
“My roof is leaking—do I need to have the whole thing replaced?” It depends. If your roof is still in great condition and hasn’t a sustained significant damage then it is possible that some patching will be enough. If you have a flat roof then a roof restoration with an acrylic or silicone coating might be a better alternative than a complete roof replacement. However, the best way to know whether or not you need a roof replacement is through an in-depth roof assessment by one of our roof specialists. “Why do I need to hire you? Can’t I do this work myself?” While it might be tempting to think that roofing could fall under a DIY-home-improvement project, repairing and replacing modern roofing systems require specialized knowledge and tools that can not be learned in a short amount of time. Why you shouldn’t try the repairs yourself: • You may seriously damage your roof resulting in more problems or bodily harm. • You could void your manufacturer’s warranty due to improper installations/repairs. Most manufactuer’s won’t cover a roof that isn’t installed by a licensed contractor. “What is the best type of roof?” To answer to this question we would need to assess your roof ’s needs and what you value in your roof. If you’re looking for the most affordable option, roof shingles could be the optimal choice; if you’re looking for long- term value, aesthetics, and minimal maintenance, tile or metal might be the better choice. “What kind of warranties are available?” There are several types of warranties: contractor’s warranties that cover workmanship, manufacturer’s warranties that cover materials and extended manufacturer’s warranties that cover materials and labor. It is important that you clearly understand their respective terms and conditions. It is absolutely essential to obtain a workmanship warranty from your contractor. This is the warranty that ensures that your roof will perform satisfactorily. It is your insurance against leaks. “Howmuch will a new roof cost me?” A new roof consists of many different factors ranging from roof system, materials, color, style, texture, labor costs, and more, which weigh into the total calculation. In order to get an accurate estimate it is best to contact one of our project managers for a comprehensive roof report and list of recommended solutions.
