If your roof is curling or loosing its grit, you probably need a new roof. If you have hail damage, you probably need a new roof.
If you have hail damage to your roof, you may have just hit the lottery. Insurance does not pay to replace an old roof, but It pays to replace a hail damaged roof. Of course, your insurance may cover storm and wind damage as well. In fact, if you need a roof replacement because of a tree falling on your house, your insurance may cover this also.
A leaking roof may let you know you have a problem before you have major damage. You want to know if your leaks are a sign of structural damage. By examining your roof, we can tell if you have water damage to your walls and structure.
Putting off getting a roof replacement can lead to major problems. If you see brown stains on your ceiling, or you lean into a wall and it feels soft and mushy, you need to get a roofer at your home ASAP. Water damage can easily be several times the price of a new roof.
If your new roof is not covered by insurance. We have financing available.
1. Manufacturers like GAF and Owens Corning bring out new products and styles on a regular basis. GAF Timberline shingles and Owens Corning Duration shingles add value and curb appeal to your house.
2. Depending on the circumstances, your insurance may pay part, or all, of the cost of a new roof. Never pass up an opportunity to get a free look at the base sheathing of your roof. Hail damage is often a blessing in disguise.
3. When you re-roof, you have an opportunity to examine the sheathing under your roof. Don’t waste this opportunity; repairing your bare roof is minor compared to repairing your ceiling or walls from water damage.
Before you find yourself strategically placing rain buckets, get your roof inspected. Unless you have shingles that have blown off, you rarely can tell from the ground looking up if your roof needs replacing or repairs. The only way to accurately examine your roof is to get up on your roof. Get an on-the-roof inspection..
If you cover up old shingles, you miss the chance to inspect and examine your base roof. Regardless that code may allow your to lay new shingles over old, or the manufacturer will warrant overlaid shingles, it is still not the smart thing to do. You do not get many opportunities to examine your sheathing. Remove the old roof and repair any and all damage you may have. This is where you really save money.
You do not want a damaged roof to allow further damage to your house. Repair your damaged roof as soon as possible. Of course, immediate repairs are not always possible. Weather interruptions, slow insurance adjusters, and high demand may make fast repairs impossible. However, your roofing contractor should help you out by putting a plastic tarp over your roof to give temporary protection. Do not delay in getting your roofing contractor lined up.
We see some pretty bad work. Some of this is from out-of-town storm chasers, but most is from weekend roofers with good intentions. The most frequent problems we see:
1. Poor nail placement that does not secure the shingles, allowing the shingles to blow off.
2. Driving nails through the shingles, also allowing the shingles to blow off.
3. Improper Underlayment.
When discussing roofing, it is important to know these 5 terms:
1. Roofs: shingles, slate or metal
2. Underlayment: It protects the sheathing
3. Sheathing: The boards that lay over the rafters
4. Structure: rafters and trusses that support the sheathing, underlayment, and shingles, tile, slate or metal
5. Flashing: Material, often sheet metal, in the roof at joints and valleys to prevent water seepage
Use Owens Corning Duration® Series Shingles. These shingles have a thin, horizontal strip across them to show exact nail placement. Plus the strip will help prevent blowout.
Owens Corning recognizes that DIY jobs are not up to the quality of their certified installers, so your warranty will be much less; a 50 year will drop to 10 years with uncertified installers.
