If your roof is over 20 years old you should consider replacing it before you develop issues that come with an aged-out roof. If you see signs of aging (curling shingles, loss of granules, rotting or moss and algae stains), it is time to start thinking about replacing your current roof with a more modern product. Current roofing products can come with a warranty of up to 50 years and have a much higher algae resistance and wind susceptibility.

Like anything, roof costs vary depending on the size of your roof and material required to complete your roof replacement. Roofs are measured & priced by what is called “A Square,” and this means 100 square feet and should include tearing off the existing shingles, evaluating existing decking, laying the new membrane, installing any necessary flashings followed by either asphalt shingles or metal, depending on your preference. The best way to find out what your roof replacement will cost and to understand material options is to contact us and schedule a free estimate appointment with one of our project managers.

Most people think roof replacement is a week-long project, but it is actually rather fast. Some roofs take as little as 1-2 days to install depending on the complexity, unforeseen trouble issues that might arise and materials used

Anywhere your roof has something protruding from it (like a chimney, vent, or wall) you need to have something to seal where the roof meets that vertically ascending feature. Roofing flashing is used to redirect and prevent water from penetrating your roof. This helps prevent roofing leaks and other issues water can cause. Usually made of galvanized steel, roof flashing can be used in valleys as well to help with preventing water damage.

It does. If your roof pitch is 3/12 or less (or currently has a rubberized membrane on it) you will need to contact a company that specializes in rubber roofing.
