1. How can I tell if my roof is in need of repair or maintenance?
Homeowners often neglect their roofing system until it begins to leak or other serious damage occurs. In most cases, roofing issues can be discovered way before major (and expensive) problems happen. If you notice cracked, warped or missing shingles, broken flashing, loose seams, or large amounts of shingle granules in the gutter, it’s time to call aGlendale roofing contractor. Cracked paint, peeling wallpaper or wall coverings, and discolored plasterboard can also indicate roof damage. Periodic inspections can help uncover potential problems and allow you to address them before they become a major investment.
2. How will I know when it’s time to replace my roof?
There are a few ways to determine if it’s time to replace your roofing system.
Age: Roofing systems generally last around 2 decades. If your roof is approaching 20 years of age, it’s near the end of its useful life.
Leaks: If you see evidence of water leaking inside to your home, it probably has been leaking for quite a while. Water can damage rafters, plywood sheathing, ceilings, walls and more. Extensive structural damage can create a huge problem for homeowners. It’s often cheaper and less involved to simply replace the roof before it begins to leak.
Appearance: Shingles that have begun to curl, break, or warp are a good indication that it’s time for a reroofing service.
3-Why Are Warranties Important?
A new roof is a big investment, typically involving thousands of your hard-earned dollars and lasting 25, 30, 40 years, or more. As with any big investment, knowing in advance what your warranty covers could save you thousands in the event that problems arise with your roof.
4. What type of roofing materials should I choose?
Homeowners can choose from composite or asphalt shingles, metal roofing, or slate tiles, with shingles being the most popular style of roofing. We are dedicated to using only the best quality roofing materials to complete any roof repair, new home roof installation, or roof replacement service, which is why we prefer GAF products.

5. How long does a reroofing job take?
The amount of time it will take to complete your reroofing project will depend on the size & complexity of your roof, the weather & season, if your old roof needs removed, the size of the roofing crew, and unforeseen issues with the roofing system. A small, uncomplicated roof may only take a few days to complete whereas a large, complicated roof structure with a number of problems may take several weeks to finish.
