FAQs

Q?

How long do Metal Roofs Last?

A.

According to the Metal Roofing Alliance, a metal roof will last two to three times longer than a traditional asphalt shingle roof. Metal coatings allow metal roofs to last longer than any other type of roof. A high-quality metal roof will likely be the last roof you'll ever need. Resistant to cracking, shrinking and eroding, metal roofing systems can also withstand extreme weather conditions. Metal roofs are expected to last for the life of the building.

Q?

After filing a homeowners policy claim, what will I pay for a new roof?

A.

Most homeowner’s insurance policies cover roof replacements due to acts of nature such as hail, wind, rain and fire. In these cases you will only pay your premiums deductible and the remaining costs of the new roof will be covered by your insurance carrier.  If you are looking to simply upgrade the materials on your roof, most likely your homeowner’s insurance policy will not cover these expenses. It is best to check your insurance policy to best determine whether or not the insurance company will replace your roof or simply pay to have it repaired.

Q?

Are there any roof types that are Eco Friendly?

A.

A Tile Roofing System consists of tiles made from naturally occurring materials. No chemical preservatives are used in manufacturing and they are 100% recyclable to make new tiles. There isn’t a better way to be kind to the environment when choosing a tile roofing system. Roof tile can help you lower energy costs by reducing heat transfer through air circulation under the tile and through concrete’s insulating properties.

Q?

How do I determine if my roof should be replaced?

A.

Sooner or later, every roof needs to be replaced usually due to the long-term effects of weathering. If a residential roof is more than 20 years old, it is a prime candidate for reroofing.  Walk around your home and inspect your roof for cracked, curled or missing shingles.  Look for excessive loss of the protective mineral granules. Take a look in your attic with a flashlight and look for any stains or wet spots indicating water leaks.

What is the most widely used Roofing product?

More than 12.5 billion square feet of asphalt shingle products are produced each year!  That is enough to cover more than 5 million homes annually!
