5 Questions and Answers From a Professional Residential Roofing Company
Some of the most common questions we answer are:
- How can you tell if your roof can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced?
- How severe can storm damage be?
- How long can you wait to repair a roof leak?
- How much does roof repair cost?
- How much does roof replacement cost?
1. How Can You Tell if Your Roof Can Be Repaired or if it Needs to Be Replaced?
The best way to tell if your roof can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced is by having it inspected by a professional. Sometimes roof damage is small and just needs a quick fix, but in other cases, it’s significant enough to warrant a roof replacement.
2. How Severe Can Storm Damage Be?
Wind and hail storms can cause severe damage, lifting and cracking shingles. In some cases, when shingle seals are broken, your roof’s underlayment may be exposed – and that puts you at risk for serious roof leaks.
3. How Long Can You Wait to Repair a Roof Leak?
Water damage never resolves itself. In fact, a small leak can quickly become a big leak – but even if it stays the same size until you have it repaired, it can do tremendous amounts of damage. Even a tiny leak in your roof can cause mold and mildew growth, wood rot and eventual roof failure.
4. How Much Does Roof Repair Cost?
Every roof is different, and how much it costs to repair hinges on several factors, including the extent of the damage. The best way to find out how much your repairs will cost is to get a free roof inspection. In many (but not all) cases, roof repair is covered by homeowner’s insurance.
5. How Much Does a Roof Replacement Cost?
A complete roof replacement doesn’t have a set cost because there are so many variables. The size of your roof and the materials you choose will determine how much a replacement costs. For example, asphalt shingles are significantly cheaper than stone tiles are – and if you’re installing them on an 8,000-square-foot home, the cost is higher than it would be if you were installing them on a smaller home.
