Homeowners often have scores of questions in their minds regarding their roofing systems but seldom do they find the right answers for them. We, at Roofone, bring you answers to common questions. They are:
1.What are the Signs of an Expired Roofing System?
To know whether your roofing system has expired or not, homeowners should lookout for the following signs:
- Missing, curling or cracked shingles
- Leakage in attic
- Stains on the ceilings
- Rotten fascia
- Blisters in paints
2.What are the Possible Options for Re-roofing?
You have two basic options, you can either go for a tear-off or go for a re-cover roof. While tear off will strip your old roof apart completely, re-cover on the other hand will re-roof on the existing shingles.
3.Which is better - a Tear Off and Roof Over?
Installing a new roof over an existing one can help to save a few bucks, but it is not really recommended as it affects the performance of the roof system. In case of asphalt shingles, more than 2 layers are strictly discouraged as it greatly affects the structural integrity of the house. We, at Roofone, recommend tear off roof for a much better roofing experience.
4.What are the Types of Roofing Materials?
Homeowners can choose from a wide array of roofing materials like:
- Asphalt Shingles
- Wooden Shingles and Shakes
- Clay & Concrete Tiles
- Fiber Cement
5.How Much Does Re-roof Cost?
The cost of roofing depends on a variety of factors like the area of the roof, the material chosen for re-roofing, the shape and the slope of the roof etc. At Roofone, we provide an estimate of our roofing services before we carry out any roofing job.
6.How Long Does it Take to Re-Roof?
Generally, re-roofing is a one or two day job. However, this duration might even get extended if some structural repairs need to be done before roofing. Also, if the size of the roof is more than average, then the roofing job may take more than the usual time.
7.How Long Does a Roof System Last?
Nowadays, most roof systems are designed in such a way that they are able to last at most 20 years. Some roofing systems like clay tile, slate and metal can last even longer. There is no fixed standard because the life of the roofing system depends upon the quality of material used, climatic conditions of the area, design of the roof system and other myriad factors.
8.What is Pre-roof Management?
Pre-roof management makes sure that your house or roof is ready for a new roofing system. The roof is thoroughly checked for any leaks. All loose items from the walls and shelves are removed so that they don’t fall down while making the roof. The driveway and other surrounding areas of the house are cleared so that any damage of any kind can be averted.
