ROOFING TIPS

Do I need to replace or repair my roof ??


Your roof should only need replacing if it is over 15 - 19 years old and if your roofing has passed by a significant hail damage storm or if you have several roofing problems. Most roofs last between 15-20 years, depending on material and installation. Leaks tend to occur between 10-16 years and most of the time only need to be repaired. Repairs that are performed should help your roof last 1-2 years more.


Does lighter colored shingle help lower Heating and Air Condition costs?

If your home has a proper ventilation system, there is no need to choose a lighter color shingle. The ventilation system will help keep your roof cool. If you are in an area with many trees, we recommend a darker colored shingle or an algae-resistant shingle (Now, every shingle comes with a minimum of 10 Years of Algae Resistant). The algae-resistant shingle resists algae for approximately 10 to 15 years, depending upon your location. Regular roof cleaning will help prevent stains even longer. We recommend cleaning your roof 1-2 times a year to help extend the life of your roof products.


Do I need 15 pounds or 30 pounds felt? or NOW the new synthetic underlayment? What is the difference?

All roofs should use 15 pounds felt unless 30 pounds is required. Synthetic RoofRunner™ lightweight synthetic polymer-based underlayment outperforms felt and outclasses other synthetics. Designed for use on roof decks as a water-resistant layer beneath asphalt roofing shingles, this scrim-reinforced underlayment includes a special top surface treatment that provides excellent slip resistance, even when wet.

Low-pitched roofs that are almost flat require Full Ice & water shield as underlayment for maximum protection. The difference between the 15 pounds, 30 pound, and synthetic felt is the thickness and cost.

Tips: You may use 30 pounds felt or NOW the new synthetic underlayment on your roof if you like, but make sure that you have enough ventilation so that your roof doesn't sweat. Roof sweating will take years off the life of your new installed roof.


What are my leakage warranty options?

  • Repairs 2-5 year leakage warranty
  • Roof Replacement 10 to 15-year leakage or blown off shingles warranty
  • Please inquire for more information or additional warranty options


What should you look for in a Roofing Contractor?
Check your roofing contractor's experience before hiring them to build your roof. Finding a qualified professional roofer can seem like a difficult task. Still, if you do your homework and follow a few tips, the experience of replacing your roof could be a positive one.

  • There are several credentials that a good roofing contractor will have.
  • They will have an established company with a permanent address, telephone numbers, and a business license.
  • The roofer should provide information about certifications, bonding, and insurance.
  • All home improvements Contractors and Subcontractors must be licensed by the MHIC. Inquiries about contractors or sub-contractors should be transmitted to the MHIC @ 410-333-6309. & / Or https://www.dllr.state.md.us/license/mhic


NOTE: It is very important that a roofing contractor has valid insurance. They should carry both worker's compensation insurance and general liability insurance. Otherwise, the homeowner could be liable for any accidents or property damage that occur during any job installations. Don't be afraid to ask for proof of insurance and be sure to verify that the dates are effective.

  • A professional roofing contractor should provide you with a detailed written estimate that describes the materials they will use, labor costs, warranty specifications, and an estimated time of completion.
  • It's a good idea to get at least three bids on a large project such as replacing your roof. The lowest price does not always equal the best deal. Significantly lower prices could mean that a contractor is cutting corners with the quality of his workers or insurance liability. The final payment should be made after the satisfactory completion of the project.
  • A professional roofing contractor will provide you with a contract that describes all the agreements and procedures in detail and includes information about necessary building permits. The contractor should obtain any building permits if they are required.
