Roof Replacement FAQ
Q: How long does a roof system last?
A: Most asphalt roofing systems are engineered to last for around 20 years. Factors such as local climate, roof system design, the quality of material and workmanship, and frequency of maintenance combine to determine the roof’s lifespan.
Q: How will I know when my roof has problems?
A: Often roof problems are visible, such as cracked or missing shingles; loose or damaged metal flashings; excessive shingle granules in the gutters or downspouts; and ceiling spots and cracked paint. If you notice any of these signs, you need to have your roof inspected by a professional.
Q: What will a roof replacement cost?
A: The cost of a new roofing system can vary widely, depending on the material selected, the contractor that installs it, the size and slope of the building, and the time of year. Renovation Team would be happy to provide you with a free consultation and quote on roof replacement.
Q: How long will a roof job take?
A: It depends on the size of the job, weather conditions and how many crew members we have available. We are not able to work in rain or high winds. In general, Renovation Team can complete an average home in one to two days.
Q: My roof isn’t leaking after a storm. Should I still get an inspection for storm damage?
A: Yes. In most cases, storm-related damage does not cause immediate leaks – the leaks will show up weeks or months from now. It is always best to have a professional roofing contractor perform a thorough inspection to determine if you have storm damage and need to file an insurance claim.
Q: Who should I call first if I think my roof is damaged, a roofing contractor or my insurance company?
A: In most cases, your insurance company will consider a report of damage as a claim, even if you don’t get a penny. We recommend that you call Renovation Team before your insurance company. We’ll make sure your roof has enough damage to warrant a claim, and can assist you through the insurance claim process.
