Q: How can I tell if my roof needs replacing?
There are a few warning signs to look out for that indicate you are in need of roof replacement or repair. Look for cracked shingles, shingles with edges that are curling or patches of the roof where you can see the black asphalt below the shingles. These signs often show up before you notice your roof is leaking.
Sometimes a leaky roof can be repaired by replacing a few shingles, but often missing shingles are a sign that the roof has reached the end of its lifespan and needs replacement.
Q: How long does a roof replacement take?
This can vary depending on the size of your home, number of crew, materials and installation methods. An average size single family dwelling with asphalt shingles can be replaced in three days by a three man team.
Q: Are there extra costs involved with replacing a roof?
At Vintage Roofing, we take pride in providing as accurate a estimate as possible, however sometimes we find things during the replacement stage that need to be added to the estimate. Our installers often find wood that is rotten in areas which must be replaced so there is a strong surface for the new roof to attach onto. With any additional costs or work that is needed, the homeowner will always be made aware as quickly as possible.
Q: What type of warranty does a new roof come with?
Vintage Roofing Ltd. guarantees our workmanship for ten years on residential and commercial roof installations. We are also manufacturer certified installers and can offer enhanced labour and lifetime material warranties.
