What Our Clients Say!
-Samantha Willey Baumann
What type of roof is best?
Asphalt shingles: The most common type of roofing material, asphalt shingles are affordable, easy to install, and come in a variety of colors and styles. Most homes have asphalt shingles.
Metal roofing: Durable and long-lasting, metal roofs can withstand extreme weather conditions and are often made from recycled materials. They can be more expensive than asphalt shingles but can provide significant energy savings.
Clay or concrete tiles: Ideal for homes with a Mediterranean or Spanish-style architecture, clay or concrete tiles are resistant to fire, pests, and rot. They can be quite heavy, so it’s important to make sure your home’s structure can support them.
Slate: One of the most durable roofing materials available, slate can last for up to 100 years and is resistant to fire, rot, and pests. It’s also quite expensive and can be difficult to install.
How long should a roof last?
Asphalt shingles: 15-30 years
Metal roofing: 40-70 years
Clay or concrete tiles: 50-100 years
Slate: 75-200 years
It’s important to note that these are just estimates and that the actual lifespan of your roof will depend on many factors, including the quality of the materials used, the quality of the installation, and the amount of maintenance and care that the roof receives over the years. To help extend the life of your roof, it’s important to have it inspected regularly and to make any necessary repairs as soon as possible.
What insurance should a roofing contractor have?
General liability insurance: This coverage protects you in the event that the contractor causes damage to your property or injures someone while working on your roof.
Workers’ compensation insurance: This coverage is required by law in most states and provides benefits to workers who are injured on the job.
Roofing contractor’s bond: This type of bond provides financial protection in case the contractor fails to complete the job or otherwise breaches the contract.
Before hiring a roofing contractor, ask to see proof of their insurance coverage and make sure that it is up to date. You can also check with your state’s licensing board or insurance department to make sure the contractor is properly licensed and insured.
How long does it take to roof a house?
In general, a simple, straightforward roof with asphalt shingles can usually be completed in 1-2 days, while a more complex roof with multiple slopes or a steep pitch may take several days or even a week to complete. Other factors that can affect the timeline include the size of the crew, the availability of materials, and any unexpected issues or complications that may arise during the installation process.
It’s important to note that weather conditions can also play a significant role in the installation timeline. Rain, snow, or extreme heat can all slow down the installation process, so it’s important to plan for potential weather delays when scheduling your roofing project.
