With winter almost over and in anticipation of the spring, homeowners are gearing up to have their roofs inspected and repaired to avoid the hassles of the peak season Today, we answers some FAQs on roof repairs and general services.
Q: Can My Roof Be Repaired, or Does It Need a Replacement?
Unless your roof is old, contractors recommend that it may not necessarily need to be replaced. To stop a leak, you may simply need to have missing, cracked, broken and curling shingles repaired and replaced. However, older roofs or roofs with multiple leaks or widespread issues must be replaced.
Q: How Much Will Roof Repair Cost?
The answer to this question can vary greatly. Factors that need to be considered include the pitch of your roof, the type of shingles you have, how old your roof is and the condition it is in, and how many layers of shingles you have. Let your roof replacement services provider inspect your roof and give you an estimate.
Q: What Makes a Roof Wear Out?
A roof wears out naturally over time, but severe weather, direct sun, algae and mildew can help it along. Hailstones striking the roof can cause damage, and darker-colored roofs tend to wear out slightly faster than lighter colored roofs as well.
Q: How Long Does Roof Replacement or Repair Take?
A roofer can’t really tell for sure until he clambers up on it and takes a good look. That’s because every roof is different, and what the roofers will find when they get up there could affect how long the job will take. Repairs can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days depending on the size and the scope of the job.
