Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I need a new roof?
On average, a roof has between 15 and 30 years of useful life, depending on the quality of the materials, the location, the climates, etc. However, you should be alert to some warning signs like broken shingles, if the asphalt has lost its grainy texture, leaks, drywall with cracks or losing its color, visible cracks, and damage caused by the wind and rusted flashing.
How much will a new roof cost me?
There are several factors that determine the price of a new roof. The main factor is the quality and professionalism of your roofing contractor. The materials, the brand, the size, and the form are also factors that influence the final price. An assessment of your roof must be done to determine the cost. Remember that you should always consider quality. But the price is not the only thing you should consider, your priority is quality. If you hire services at low cost and end up with a poor quality installation, in time it will be much more expensive.
How long will it take to install my new roof?
The first thing you have to take into account is that there are always unforeseen events that affect the installation of new roofs. The weather is a very important factor because the climate must be manageable to complete the job. On average, it usually takes between 1 to 2 days to complete the installation of a new roof.
