Frequently Asked Questions.
How Can You Tell if Your Roof Needs to be Replaced?
A simple rule of thumb to follow is to replace your roof about every 20-25 years. Over time essential material begins to fail. As a homeowner, if you notice any leaks, missing or torn shingles, dents, or bald spots it is recommended to contact a roofing professional.
How Long Does It Take to Replace a Roof?
The size of the building, type of roof, and mother nature are a few variables that can alter the timeline of a roof install. Roofworks and Construction can typically replace a residential roof in one day. However, our overall main goal is to deliver a quality finished product to every customer.
What is the Cost of a New Roof?
Different variations of roofing material, color, styles, and size of the project can play a factor in the cost of replacing a roof. Roofworks and Construction offers a free, no obligation inspection to help our prospective customers.
Why Are My Shingles Discolored?
The staining or streaking on your roof is typically algae, fungus, or mold. This inconvenient growth is due to humid climate. If you notice any discoloration on your roof, you can try cleaning it with commercial grade product, or call Roofworks and Construction for professional help.
Will I Have to Replace My Gutters and Downspouts at the Same Time of Roof Replacement?
Our contractors are equipped with ladder gutter guards to prevent any damage to your pre-existing gutters during the roof replacement process. If you are in need of new gutters, or need your gutters replaced, Roofworks and Construction offers gutter installation or replacement services.
If My Roof Leaks Will I Need a Whole New Roof?
Depending on the extent of the leak, a roof may only need to be repaired. A repair may suffice for a leak coming from the chimney, or a single missing shingle. However, if it is an older roof with several worn spots and/or multiple missing shingles, it will likely need to be replaced. Our project managers at Roofworks and Construction are trained to assess the leak(s) and/or damage and provide you with the best solution.
Do I Need to Do Anything to Prepare for New Roof Installation?
The most important way for the customer to prepare for a new roof install is to make sure their driveway is completely cleared. It is common for roofing material and debris to fall. A cleared space also provides extra space for the contractors and materials. Although not required, we suggest also removing loose items from the walls and/or shelves. The vibration from hammering can cause unsecured items to fall. A quality roofer will take care of the rest.
How Do I Choose the Right Roofing Contractor?
A new roof is not a small investment. When you start the process of getting a new roof, the most important decision you can make is your contractor. It is recommended to get local referrals, check the reviews and testimonials, and do your own additional research.
Can I Finance a New Roof?
Roofworks and Construction offers financing to pre-qualified customers. Call us today for a free quote.
Do I Have to Pay My Deductible?
Yes. State law enforces the homeowner’s obligation to make their deductible payment. It is illegal for a contractor or roofer to waive an insurance deductible. This law is enforced to protect the customer, and help prevent scams.
