Whether you’re a new homeowner or you’ve simply never had to look into a new roof, the process can be intimidating. For most individuals that are looking into the process of getting a new roof, there are various questions that are likely lingering. In today’s blog post, the team at Home Town Roofing will touch on some of the frequently asked questions that we receive about new roofs. If the question that you have isn’t covered in today’s blog, feel free to reach out to our team, and we’d be more than happy to get it answered for you. 

How do I know if I need a new roof?

New roofs are expensive and can come with unexpected costs — we completely understand that. With that being said, there are plenty of signs that it’s due time to invest in a new roof. If you notice one or more of these signs with your roof or on your ceiling, it’s best to contact our team so that we could provide you with a full consultation on whether or not it’s time to invest in a new roof. Keep an eye out for:

  • Wet spots on your ceiling or in the attic. 
  • Shingles that are broken, curled, or warped. 
  • Shingles that are completely missing. 
  • Water that is backed up in your eaves. 
  • Damaged or completely compromised flashing. 

These are some of the most common signs that it’s time to invest in a new roof, but they certainly aren’t all of the signs. If you’re unsure, contact our team, and we can schedule a consultation. 

How much does a new roof cost?

As a homeowner, the last thing that you ever want are unexpected costs to arise. Unfortunately, that’s a part of the role that you’ve taken on. When it comes to roofs, the price is definitely going to vary — so be prepared to hear that answer. In order to provide you with the roof that is best suited for your home or commercial building, our team will have to complete a consultation and work over the various roofing options that are available to you. Each factor that we go over, as well as any damage that needs to be repaired, will become a part of the overall cost of your new roof. 

What are my roofing options?

This is definitely a question that we get quite a bit, and it makes sense why that would be the case! If you haven’t had to invest in a new roof, of course you haven’t had to look into the various options that are available to you. Given the large variety of roofing options that have come to fruition, this answer is going to vary from person to person. For starters, the shape of your roof will play a part in the answer you receive. We will also take colors, material, and budget into consideration before giving you a clear answer. To get the best answer to this question, sit down with a member of our team and see which of the roofing options would be best for your home or commercial space. 

How long does a new roof last? 

Again, a new roof is an expensive investment, but it’s one that is entirely worth it. A new roof, when properly maintained and cared for, should last roughly 20 years. This, of course, will vary if there is any damage from weather or it is not properly maintained. The best way to make the most of the lifetime of your roof is to stay in touch with the team that installs your new roof and make sure that you’re scheduling any routine maintenance.
