Most Common Roofing Questions

RoofSince the average asphalt roof lasts for 20 years, most homeowners don’t have to hire roofers very often. While you may know what to ask a plumber or an electrician, hiring the right roofer can be confusing. Here are some of the most common questions that come up when hiring a roofer.

How long does roof work take?

Reroofing a medium-sized home takes one to two days; reroofing a large home can take as long as four days. Roof repair could be completed in an afternoon, or a large-scale repair could take days. If we experience bad weather, it could take longer, but we try to schedule roof work when the weather is good to minimize project delays.

Do I need to be home?

While you may prefer to be home when our team is fixing your roof, you don’t have to be there. The choice is yours.

How expensive is a metal roof?

It all depends on the size of your roof. A general rule of thumb is that a metal roof costs three times what an asphalt roof would cost. Metal roofs last far longer than asphalt roofs, which often makes them a better investment over the lifetime of the house. You may be able to get a tax credit for installing a metal roof, which would offset your out of pocket costs.

Will roof debris damage my property?

We take reasonable measures to protect your property and landscaping before we do the roof work, so no property damage occurs. We also clean up all debris upon roof work completion. Since we want to leave your property better than we found it, we would hate for our crew to cause damage to your yard, garden, or home. If you have a particular concern, let us know before we start the job and we will do what we can to accommodate your needs.
