5 FAQs About New Roof Installation
Should I repair my leaking roof or does it need to be replaced?
It depends on what is causing the leak in your roof. In many cases, leaking roofs can be repaired with no major issues. If the leak is a result of broken, curled, or missing shingles, these can simply be replaced and your roof will be as good as new.
However, if your roof is old and near the end of its lifespan, it will keep springing leaks no matter how many times it’s patched. This can end up costing more in repairs and in such instances, it is better to replace the whole roof.
How much will a roof installation or repair cost?
The cost of installing a roof depends on several factors including the type of shingles you choose, the layers needed, as well as the condition and pitch of the roof. The best way to know the cost is to contact Christian Roofing Brothers for a roof inspection. Once we’re done with the inspection, we’ll give you a free quote.
How long will my new roof last?
The longevity of a roof depends on the materials it’s made of, the installation, and the ventilation, among other factors. Generally, though, a roof should last for about 15-25 years with slate or metal roofs lasting longer than others. To ensure the longevity of your roof, always get professional roofers to do the installation and any repairs.
Can I repair my roof myself?
You may be an expert at DIY projects around the house but leave roofing jobs to the professionals. Roofing accidents can be quite serious and a tumble from such a height can cause serious injuries. Additionally, tampering with the roof can void your warranty or you could end up causing more damage. It is better to leave this to roofing professionals.
How long does it take to install or repair a roof?
This depends on several variables including the weather, the degree of damage, as well as the size and pitch of the roof. Here at Christian Roofing Brothers, we aim to finish a roofing job (from the removal of the old roof to clean up) as quickly as we can while doing an excellent job.
