Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my roof needs to be replaced?

One of the easiest ways to know whether or not your roof needs to be replaced to to look for the tiny stones or granules that are normally stuck to the surface of the shingles in your gutters and downspouts. A large number of these granules indicates that your shingles have reached the end of their lifespan. Seeing shininess on your roof is another indication that it needs to be replaced. That shine is from the fiberglass backing of the shingle catching the sunlight, which indicates that parts of the shingles have worn away. The best way to know if you need a new roof is to have us come take a look and do a free roof inspection (link to page).

Do we have to remove my old shingles or can we put a new layer over the existing one?

While building code does allow for up to two layers of shingles, there are benefits to removing the old layer when you get a roof replacement. Removing the old layer of shingles allows us to add new ice shielding and other layered protection which gets worn out over time. 

We’re also able to check the roof decking for unseen issues such as rot, softening or other damage that could cause significant problems in the future.

Do you offer financing?

Yes. We offer a variety of financing options to fit your needs. Ask us about our options. It is generally easy to get prequalified.

Should I repair my roof or replace it?

The level of damage to your roof will determine whether repair or replacement makes more sense. We look at the overall condition of the roof and its materials and decide whether we can safely repair the roof. We verify that there are no larger issues from previous leaking or damage. If everything looks good, repair is a great option. If not, we’ll give you options and next steps for roof replacement.

We always provide accurate, honest assessments of your roof and provide the best recommendations for your needs.

How long does it take to replace a roof?

Roof replacement can generally be done within a few days, barring any extenuating circumstances such as weather or unexpected damage.
