How do I know if my roof has problems?
Most of the time roof problems are discovered after a damage has occurred from a leak. However, not all leaks produce visible damage immediately. Some leaks can occur for up to a year (longer in rare cases) before showing any signs of damage. For this reason it is important have your roof inspected at least once per year by a qualified contractor.
How long should my roof last?
That depends on a few factors (roof type, pitch/slope of the roof, ventilation, installation, maintenance, and weather). As a rule of thumb: Basic three tab fiberglass shingle: 15 to 25 years. Flat roof: 5 to 15 years.
What is the best time of year to have my roof replaced?
There is none. This is a bit of a myth, roofing materials are safe to install year round in our service area.
