General Roofing Questions

How can I recognize when my roof system has problems?
Look out for water leaks, stains on your ceiling, and/or roofing debris. Also, consider the age of your roof.
My roof leaks. Can my roof be repaired or does it need to be replaced?
It depends on the condition and age of the roof.
How long can I expect my roof system to last?
Somewhere between 15-50 years depending on the system. Flat roofs usually last around 15-20 years and pitched roofs usually last around 30-50. These are estimates and multiple variables can affect this.
What will it cost to repair the roof?
It's difficult to know without details and seeing the roof. Call or email us for a free quote.
What type of roof should I get?
For residential roofs, we suggest considering what would look good with your home and/or the neighborhood. Type does not add value, life expectancy does.
How can I find the exact location of a leak?
Finding the exact location of a leak can be extremely difficult. We typically repair leaks when the weather is dry so often times we don't know for sure that the leak is resolved until it rains again. If your leak is unresolved, please contact us for a free service call.
How long will it take to repair/replace my roof?
For residential homes, once we get started, it could take 1-2 days to repair and around 2 work weeks to replace. These are estimates and multiple variables can affect this.
How often should I inspect my commercial roof?
If you notice small damage, standing water, or experience interior leaks, you should call for an inspection right away. There are a few other times you will want your roof inspected:

  • Before a severe weather season. Don't wait until the leak has already done damage!
  • After a severe weather season or big storm where damage may have occurred.
