Roof Damage FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Few homeowners notice roof damage until major damage occurs from storms. There are warning signs to look for: leaking, missing or curling shingles; cracked drywall; rusted/damaged flashing, etc. Usually, damage is not visible to those who have not been trained to look for it.

Will I need to replace my whole roof if it is leaking?

Not necessarily. Roofs leak for different reasons: break in waterproofing layer, opening in sealant; deterioration of shingles and flashing; defects in roofing materials; damage from storms or hail.

Why hire a local contractor?

Local contractors are more reliable than out of town contractors who may be gone tomorrow!

What will a new roof cost?

The price of a new roof varies based on the material selected and the shape and size of the roof. If it is covered by insurance, your cost will only be your deductible.

If I want to re-roof, what are my options?

If you have decide you need to re-roof, there are two basic options:

  • Replace the roof by tearing off the old roof (recommended)
  • Install new roof over existing roofing material (less expensive but harder to find all the defects in sheeting and flashing deterioration)
