Does it take long to replace a roof on a house?
Replacing a roof is a labor intensive project and depending upon the type, size and complexity of the roof it could take one day or a few days or more to complete. It also depends upon weather conditions. Bad weather always creates delays and hinders completion of the project.
Can you install roof shingles in winter?
Asphalt shingles can be installed properly in winter (late fall and winter) but only if some additional costly measures are taken. A specialized adhesive is needed to be manually applied to each shingle if the temperature is below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
What is the minimum roof pitch for asphalt shingles?
The manufacturers say a 4/12 pitch is the minimum but the absolute minimum is 2/12. Pitch is measure in inches in vertical rise over one foot of horizontal run. So a 4/12 pitch roof rises 4 inches vertically for every 12 inches of horizontal run.
How long do asphalt shingles last?
Asphalt shingles can last up to 30 years. Wood shingles and shakes have a target lifetime of 30 years, but they can last much longer under moderate weather conditions.
What roof lasts the longest?
|Wood Shake||14-20 years|
|Asphalt Shingle||10-30 years (20 is the norm)|
|Built-Up (BUR)||25-30 years|
So the metal, steel, tile, concrete and slate roofs last the longest. Asphalt, built-ups and single ply are the next longest lasting roofing material.
Are metal roofs noisy?
This may surprise you but metal roofs, when installed with solid sheathing, are actually quieter than asphalt roofs. These metal roofs, when installed properly, can actually silence the noise from rain, hail and other bad weather better than those other roofing materials.
Do metal roofs attract lightening?
No. Metal roofs do not attract lightening and are not struck any more often than any other roofing materials. People’s concern about metal roofs being hit by lightning strikes comes from the fact that metal can be an electrical conductor.
Bottom line, what is the cost to the homeowner?
If you have insurance and insurance is paying, then the homeowner’s cost is their deductable and any upgrades. Call for a free quote and check your insurance policy to see the amount of your deductable to help you know the costs involved.
Does my roof have to be replaced or can it be repaired?
The common thought is that a leaking roof has to be replaced, but this is not necessarily the solution unless it is very old. Those missing, cracked, broken, or curling shingles are able to be repaired and replaced to stop a leak without replacing the whole roof, while older roofs or roofs with many leaks or other issues should be replaced.
What is the cost to repair my roof?
Repair costs vary and depend upon the pitch of the roof, the kind of shingles used, the condition of it, and how many different layers of shingles are on the roof. The only way to know what the price is to have someone come out to your house and provide you with a free quote.
