Frequently asked questions
Q: What is the best time of year to roof my home?
A: Years ago the best time to roof was summer do to the old time sealants that needed high temperature to seal shingles together. Now with new sealants any time of the year is fine as long as the temperature is above 40 degrees.
Q: How do you know when a roof needs to be replaced?
A: Most shingles will start to fade in color and start to loose granules (little rocks) which protect them from the sun. Once shingles start to loose granules (little rocks) or start to fade this should be a warning sign to watch the roof more closely. These granules (little rocks) will start to come out of the gutter system and show up on the ground by the ends of the down spouts. Other areas like flashings that rust or liftc. shingles are other signs to call for a free estimate.
