If you’re a first-time homeowner, it’s natural to have lots of questions about roof maintenance.
Yes, you understand that the job of your roof is to protect you and your home from the elements, you may not be as familiar with the types of things you’ll need to do ensure you’ll get the longest lifespan out of it as possible.
For this blog, we wanted to address some of the most common roof maintenance FAQs that Denver, CO homeowners have.
Do I need to replace my roof it if has a leak?
The best answer we can give without inspecting your roof, is maybe. When you contact Denver’s Best Roofers we’ll schedule a time for one of our contractors to come to your home to perform a free roof inspection. If the problem is minor, we’ll let you know why we feel that roof repair is the best way to go. If the leak is significant and/or it’s gone unchecked for too long, we may find that you’re experiencing a complete roof system failure. Regardless as to our findings, we’ll provide you with a free, detailed report along with our recommended course of action.
How long will my roof last?
This is also a very common question. The longevity of your roofing system will depend on a number of things, including but not limited to the type of materials that have been used (ie: asphalt shingle, tile, rubber, etc.), the quality of the workmanship of the previous installer and whether you’ve kept up on regular maintenance. If you have questions about how many more years you’ll get out of your current roof, call us today to schedule a free roof inspection.
If I need to replace my roof, how much will that cost?
Again, the cost to replace a roof in Denver will depend on the size of the home and the type of materials you want to use during the replacement. The cost to install an asphalt shingle roof will be different than the cost to install a rubber roof. You’ll also need to take the experience and professionalism of the roofing contractor into consideration. Do they offer a warranty on both materials and workmanship? How long have they been in business? What are prior clients saying about their experience in working with this company? Remember- all roofing contractors are not alike!
How long will a roof replacement take?
This is another question that’s difficult to answer without having additional information. What we can say is that the time frame associated with roof replacement will depend on the square footage of your home, how high your roof is off the ground and the type of materials you’d like to use. All that being said, most jobs can be complete in three to four days.
