ROOF INSTALLATION: WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?
Roof installation is quite the undertaking, and a new roof can protect your home for many years. However, you might notice your neighbors replacing their roofs; or your roof has begun to show signs of wear. Whatever the reason, this article will tell you everything you need about roof installation.
How can you tell if your roof needs to be replaced?
Most roofing materials last between 20 and 30 years. While some materials are more durable, such as stone tiles, which can last for more than 50 years, others are less durable and are not designed to last that long. If installed by a sub-par roofer, your roof will not last nearly that long. No matter what, there are ways to tell if it’s time to replace your roof.
- Cracked, peeling, or broken shingles are standard.
- Shingle granules are found in your gutters and your yard
- Notice “bald” shingles without protective granules
- “Roof rot”
- Leaks are evident in your home
- Your roof looks old
- Your neighbors are getting new roofs
- You notice a rise in your energy bills without an increase in usage.
All About Roofing Roof Installation Experts
Homeowners can perform an interior roof inspection on their own. Grab a flashlight and go into the attic. Look for sunlight from the roof beams: dark streaks, stains, and visible water damage or moisture intrusions on wood. Homeowners should look for wood rot throughout the attic beams. If there are damp spots during winter, it could indicate that water has entered your home through the roof.
Homeowners can also inspect their roofs from the outside. You should only climb on your roof if it is safe. Call a professional if your roof is steep or slippery. Homeowners with roofing systems using materials such as metal and slate should also call a professional. Check for dark streaks and moss growth, decaying shingles or chimney flashing damage, and signs of poor workmanship (such as not being arranged correctly).
These signs could indicate that your roof may be too old or damaged. If you notice these signs, give All About Roofing a call, and we’ll be happy to provide you with a FREE no obligations inspection. Homeowners should inspect their roofs at least once a year and after severe storms or high winds.

WHAT To Look For In A Roofing Estimate
There are several things homeowners should look for when a roofing contractor gives an estimate. First, you should look beyond the contact information of the company (name, address, phone number, and email address) to find things such as:
Information about insurance and licensing. Do not hire a roofing contractor who isn’t licensed.
The contractor’s work should be detailed and comprehensive.
For example, the estimate should include all the roofing materials, the type of underlayment the roofer will use, the thickness: flashing locations, and other information.
It should include information about the removal of old roofing materials. Every step should be clearly defined.
Knowing when your roofing contractor will start work on your roof is essential. You can usually move the date to be convenient for you.
Your roofing contractor should include a projected completion date so that you can know how long it will take to install your roof. A good roofing contractor will finish a job on time, barring any unforeseen circumstances. Your roof installation can be delayed by bad weather or circumstances beyond your control (e.g. damaged roofing materials).
The estimate should include a list of materials that ordered.
The cost of a job is affected by the materials used. For example, standard asphalt shingles will make your roof installation less expensive than slate tiles. Prices for shingles, tiles, flashings, soffit components, and parts (such as gutters), should be considered. You will know how much you will spend if every item is listed in the estimate.
The total project cost
The project’s total cost includes labor and materials, as well as the removal and cleanup of old roofing materials. In addition, it should consist of the costs of the underlayment and the ice and waterproof barrier chimney work, skylight work, and permits.
Information about warranties
Information about warranties and guarantees should be included in your estimate for roof installation. You should also have information about workmanship guarantees, materials warranties, and what you can expect from the cleaning process.
