As a GAF Master Elite™ Weather Stopper® Roofing Contractor, you can count on us to give you top-of-the-line roofing systems and professional workmanship in every project. Read on as we answer common question about residential roofing.
Q: Which Roofing Material Should I Go For?
A: The material for your roofing ultimately depends on three things: your budget, your personal tastes, and your home’s needs. Asphalt remains the popular choice for many homeowners since it’s the most affordable of all the choices and has respectable elemental resistance.
We encourage you to look at the long-term value though and not to depend solely on budget; asphalt shingles can last up to 20 years, but a metal roof has an operating life span of 50 years and requires less maintenance, making it the more cost-effective residential roofing option in the long run.
Q: What Are the Tell-Tale Signs That I Need a New Roof?
A: Some of the obvious signs that your roof needs replacing include torn and missing shingles, leaks, ceiling spots, and flashings that are in disrepair. Another way to check if the signs aren’t obvious is to check if your gutters have a lot of granules. These actually come from your shingles, and is a sign that your roofing shingles aren’t effective at warding off elemental damage anymore.
Q: Should I Have Small Leaks Repaired?
A: Yes. Even the most insignificant looking leaks can pose a real danger in the future since they can rapidly grow in size in just a matter of weeks. The price you pay to repair this small leak is a pittance when you compare it to the amount you’ll have to pay when the leak becomes bigger and causes widespread moisture damage in your roof.
