Residential Roof Replacement
Professionals in Residential Roof Replacement
Depending on your roof’s materials, it could last anywhere between 12 years and hundreds. Most of us are going to need to replace our roof at some point. Whether that’s from ordinary wear and tear, old age, or even extreme damage from a storm, your roof is going to decline eventually. The experienced team at Happy Home Roofing is ready to give you a newer, more modern roof and bring your home back to its former glory.
When Is It Time to Have Your Roof Replaced?
Sometimes, a good quality repair is all you need to extend the life of your current roof. But other times, patching is just making the integrity of your roof decline faster and you need to invest in a new one. The factors below can give you an indication of when it might be time to install a new roof.
Water damage in your home can cause massive problems. If you see dark spots or stains on your ceiling, that’s a sign that your roof isn’t doing its job. A single, small leak can usually be repaired, but if your roof is letting in water from multiple areas, you must take care of the problem and replace your roof as soon as possible.
Missing or Damaged Shingles
Missing or damaged shingles are a sign that your roof might need to be replaced. As we all know, the weather in the Hagerstown area can often be unpredictable. Not only can storms contribute to lost shingles, but they can also leave you with complete parts of your roof missing. If you notice missing or damaged shingles, call the Happy Home Roofing team immediately.
The Age of Your Roof
Different roofing materials are meant to last different amounts of time (with the proper maintenance of course). For example, asphalt shingle roofs last up to 20 years and tile roofs can last up to 50 years. And if a strong storm hits, you may need a replacement roof even sooner. How old is your roof? If its life expectancy is coming to a close, you might want to think about calling us to take a look.
Residential Roof Replacement FAQs
What is the difference between a roof repair and a roof replacement?
Even though these both sound similar, they are very different. Roof repair means fixing one or two small problems, like a leak, with patching. A complete roof replacement means removing your old roof and installing a brand new one.
Do the roofers need to come inside?
Usually not. When we work on your home, we can typically make all preparations and complete the work without coming inside. This means we won’t disturb your family’s activities.
Will I need to replace my gutters if I get my roof replaced?
This will depend on how your gutters were installed. Even if we have to temporarily remove the gutters, we can usually put them back on. However, a new roof is a great time to upgrade your current gutters because this prevents them from being damaged during the roofing process.
