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 15-20 years, depending on the 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.
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 of felt? Or NOW the new synthetic underlayment? What is the difference?
All roofs should use 15 pounds of 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, almost flat roofs require Full Ice & water shield as underlayment for maximum protection. The difference between the 15 pounds, 30 pounds, and synthetic felt is the thickness and cost.
Tips: You may use 30 pounds of felt or NOW the new synthetic underlayment on your roof if you like, but ensure enough ventilation, so your roof doesn't sweat. Roof sweating will take years off the life of your newly installed roof.

What should you look for in a Roofing Contractor?
Could you 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 positive.
NOTE: A roofing contractor must have valid insurance. They should carry both worker's compensation insurance and general liability insurance. Otherwise, the homeowner could be liable for accidents or property damage during job installations. Be bold and ask for proof of insurance, and be sure to verify that the dates are effective.
