How long do roofs last?

A roof's lifespan can vary considerably depending on what material is used.

Slate, metal, and tile roofs will last considerably longer. Generally, a metal roof can last anywhere from 40 to 70 years, while slate and tile can last 100 years or more with regular maintenance.

How can I tell if my roof needs to be replaced?

There are several signs you can look out for that may indicate your roof needs to be replaced. Watch out for the following:

  • Dark patches or bald spots
  • Sagging or drooping
  • Moss growth

If you see any of the above, don't hesitate to contact us for a roof inspection.

What's the best type of roof?

Best is hard to say: It depends on the property and the budget. If you have a higher price point, it's certainly worth considering going for ametal, slate, or tile roof.

If my roof leaks, do I need a whole new roof?

No. Unless the roof is past its prime, we usually only have to repair the affected area. The roof will then be good to go for the rest of its lifespan.

How long does it take to replace a roof?

Metal or tile roofs will take up to a week or more depending on the size of the job.

What is the cost of a new roof?

The cost of a roof will vary based on the material and the size of the job. Usually, it ranges anywhere from $5,000 to $11,000. In some parts of the country, the high-end figure is as much as $45,000.

How can I get an estimate?

You can get a no-obligation estimate by contacting us. We'll then assess the size of the job, as well as the costs of materials and labor so that we can give you a detailed quote.

How does roof pitch affect durability?

The pitch of a roof is its angle: how flat or how high it sits. Generally speaking, low-pitch roofs tend to accumulate water build-up, which can cause them to wear out faster. A higher pitch will have better drainage, meaning fewer down-the-road issues.

Note that pitch only affects the durability of certain types of roofs. Some roofing systems—such as torch-down roofs—will always have a low pitch. Asphalt roofs should be built on a higher pitch.

What do you do to protect a home temporarily after a storm has damaged a roof?

We use a range of preventative measures to shore up the roof and make sure it won't leak. We will patch holes, secure any water-damaged areas, and fasten waterproof tarpaulins if required. From there, we can work with the client to develop a detailed action plan to provide a more permanent solution.
