How Do I Know if My Roof is Damaged?
Several signs can identify if your roof is damaged. Water damage in your attic or throughout your home is a tell-tale sign of roof damage. Other signs include missing shingles or even holes in your roof.
How Long Can I Expect My New Roof to Last?
The average roof is designed to last approximately 20 years, but it also depends on the weather, wear-and-tear, and material you picked for your roof. Materials such as slate, clay, and metal are built to last longer than a traditional asphalt
Do I Really Need Routine Inspections?
Routine inspections allow professionals to use their trained eyes to find potential issues and concerns.
Can I Inspect a Roof On my Own?
It’s highly recommended that you have your roof inspected by professionals twice a year. The team at Structured Roofing Systems has inspected hundreds of roofs throughout Dallas – Fort Worth, Texas. While you can look at your roof, it’s not recommended as damage can be overlooked or unnoticed by the untrained eye.
How Do I Determine If I Need a New Roof?
You’ll start to notice signs. Signs include curling shingles, loss of asphalt, water damage to the ceiling or leaks, decaying shingles, visible cracks, wind damage, and broken shingles. If your roof is over 15 years old, we highly recommend scheduling an inspection today.
How Much Will a New Roof Cost?
Several factors go into determining the cost of a roof replacement. These include the quality and brand of the selected roofing materials, the type of shingle or material selected, and the size and slope of your roofline. We recommend selecting a new roof for the protection offered, not the cost alone.
How Long Will It Take to Install a New Roof?
Each home is different; we estimate around three or four days to install your new roof. This timeline is subject to change based on weather, inventory, and conversations with your insurance company.
Is it Okay to Roof Over the Existing Roof to Save the Cost of a Tear-Off?
When you cover up old shingles, you can no longer inspect, for example, your base roof for damages. This could cost you more money in the future. While building codes may allow you to cover old shingles, we don’t recommend them. By covering your old roof, you lose the opportunity to examine your sheathing. Your old roof should be permanently removed, and any damage found should be repaired before installing a new one.
Does Your Company Carry Liability Insurance?
Yes! We carry general liability insurance; all our employees and crew members are covered under worker’s compensation.
My Home was Hit by Hail, But I Do Not Have Any Leaks. Should I Still Have My Roof Inspected?
Yes, it’s always a good idea to have your roof inspected by a professional after a storm because frequently, even if it appears not to have any signs of damage, there could be damage this is not noticeable to the untrained eye. In fact, we recommend having your roof assessed twice yearly, regardless of whether your home has been affected by a storm recently. Having unaddressed damage could potentially lead to many problems with your roofing system.
What If My Claim Has Been Denied?
As an insured homeowner, you can request a re-inspection from your insurance company. Here at Structured Roofing Systems, we specialize in working with insurance companies and helping our customers navigate the claims process.
Do You Offer a Warranty?
Yes, we offer a lifetime workmanship warranty on all our roof replacements.
My Home Went Through a Hailstorm Recently, Should I File an Insurance Claim?
Not necessarily. It’s always a good idea to have an experienced roofing contractor assess your roof before you call your insurance company.
How Much Does it Cost to Have My Roof Inspected?
Here at Structured Roofing Systems, all our roof inspections are complimentary.
Do You Do Any Other Work Besides Roof Replacements?
Yes, we’re a full restoration company and can repair any damages caused by storms.
Will You Waive My Deductible?
If you have filed a claim with your insurance carrier and plan on using the funds provided by them, by Texas law, the homeowner must pay the deductible in full.
Will a New Roof Help Lower my Energy Bill?
If your roof is older and starting to underperform, a replacement roof can help lower your energy bill. We recommend ensuring your attic remains close to the outside temperatures. However, overheating during the summer indicates failing or inadequate ventilation. Overheating can cause your home’s HVAC unit to run nonstop, significantly increasing your energy bill.
Can I Replace my Roof in the Winter?
The most popular and standard time of year for roof repairs and replacement is in spring or late fall, but it can also be completed in winter. Our experienced team knows how to install a new roof without fearing the cold temperatures damaging anything.
Should I Replace the Shingles or the Entire Roof?
Your home’s roof contains more than a layer of shingles. When you replace the entire system, you enhance its overall performance. The roof comprises layers including leak barrier protection, synthetic roof deck protection, starter strip shingles, lifetime shingles, and ventilation.
What Causes Roof Wear and Tear?
Wear and tear are a combination of several factors. These include severe weather, temperature, and even algae growth. It’s been noted that dark-colored roofs tend to wear out quicker than light-colored roofs.
What Type of Roof is Best?
When determining the best type of roof, several factors go into making that decision. Different roof materials have different lifespans, and their cost isn’t all that should be considered before making a final decision.
