A residential or commercial roof replacement project is one of the biggest and most complex projects you’ll ever do. There’s a lot to think about and prepare for and you’ll understandably have a lot of questions to ask about the entire process.
Creative Construction Group answers frequently asked questions regarding roof replacement.
Q: How Can I Tell if I Need a New Roof?
A: There are a few warning signs you should watch out for. Curling, buckling and damaged shingles are all signs that your roof needs replacing soon. Loss of asphalt granules in the form of bald spots is also another thing to watch out for and is a clear sign that your roof is close or already past its operating life span.
Q: Should I Repair or Replace the Roof?
A: As a general rule, residential roof repair is the correct course of action if your existing roofing concerns are short-term. These include storm damage, missing shingles and flashings, or damaged internal structures. Roof replacement is the solution to long-term problems that can’t be solved with just repair work. Decaying or rotting shingles, for example are irreparable and will require a full replacement.
Q: Should I Move Out During a Roof Replacement?
A: Definitely. Full roof replacements are noisy and will interfere with nearly all of your daily house activities, not to mention spook your pets and make your children uncomfortable. It can also get very dusty, especially when you’ll have to do repair work on the wooden portions of the roof.
We recommend scheduling your roof replacement project with the individual schedules of your family members in mind. The last thing you want, after all, is to schedule it when the kids or your spouse are taking a much-needed rest at home.
