FAQ
 

Q: How do I know if I need a new roof?

A: The following are things that may indicate that your roof needs replacing:

  • Missing, cracked or curling shingles

  • Blistering or peeling paint

  • Shingle, sheathing or siding decay

  • Leakage in the attic after heavy rains

  • Stains on interior walls or ceilings

  • High energy bills

Q: How often should I clean my gutters?

A: Gutters should be cleaned at least once in the summer and twice in the fall.

Q: Can heavy snow damage my roof?

A: Yes! It is important to keep heavy snow off your eavesdrops and cleared out of your ridge vents.

Q: How long will it take to complete my roof?

A: On average, residential roofs can take one to two days for completion. There are exceptions if roofs are larger
average, need intense repairs, or if they include special material installations.

Q: Can you just go over the top of my existing roof material instead of tearing it off?

A: After years of roofing experience, we have found that re-covering any roof can pose future problems. Doing this can trap moisture, new material will not lay completely flat, and it's more susceptible to damage and blowing off because the nails do not seat correctly.


Q: What can I do about mildew on my roof?

A: Most home improvement stores sell a mildew cleaner that can be applied to your roof with a sprayer. Mildew cleaners shouldn’t damage your roof in any way.
