Herbert Roofing is in the business to not only repair roofs, but also educate those on finding the best companies to do repairs specific for your needs. We know there are a ton of local roofing companies and contractors available to repair your roof – some better than others. With that in mind, we want to make sure you choose the best local company to help you with your home.
Typical Roof Replacement Cues
It’s a good idea to regularly check your roof for damaged, cracked or peeling shingles. If you live in an area where it rains frequently, make sure to look for algae, mold and other dark spots. These may not need to be replaced right away, but if you are trying to sell your home, these spots may bring down the value.
If you find your roof looks worn or has specific spots that need to be replaced, contact your local roofing company for an expert consultation. Most roofs last a few decades, but you may need to get parts of your roof replaced before getting an entire roof replacement.
Roof Repair or Replacement
Your roof’s age and damage will help you – and your local roofing company – determine whether you should repair parts of your roof or replace it altogether. At times, replacing sections of shingles will get the job done. If a few shingles were lost due to a heavy storm, you’ll be able to get away with doing a minor repair. However, if your roof has major leaks through all the layers of the roof, it might be time to throw the towel in and call for a replacement quote.
Before you decide to replace a few shingles, consult with your local roofing company to get advice on whether to do a full roof replacement. If the damage is extensive or you have an older roof, it will be a better idea to replace the entire roof.
Quality Roofing Materials
Roofs are expensive! In order to make your investment worth it, it’s best to go with quality materials to help with the longevity of your roof. Purchasing quality materials now will reduce the number of times you’ll have to repair or replace your roof in the future. With a little shopping around, it’s possible to find quality, yet affordable, materials with good warranties.
Herbert Roofing works with top rated roofing materials and shingles, including GAF, CertainTweed and DuroLast. In addition to using the best roofing materials, our roofers also go through extensive certifications, enabling us to offer expanded warranties that only certified installers can offer.
Hiring the Roofing Company for the Job
You could use the best materials and have a lifetime warranty on your roof, but if the actual roof replacement is a shotty job, it will still cost time and money to fix the mistakes. We encourage you to call multiple roofing companies and contractors for quotes and references before finalizing who ultimately repairs your roof.
