What is wrong with my roof? Do I need a new roof or just some simple repairs? What part of the roof is flashing? You’re a homeowner and not a roofing pro. You might only replace one roof in your lifetime. Plus, roofing technology gets better and better over the years, and what was standard 15+ years ago might not be now. That’s why we put together a list to help you with some of the most often asked roofing questions and answers.
Common Roofing Questions and Answers
Q. What are common roofing problems we might experience with our roof?
A. Roofs do have a lifetime. They will not last forever, and eventually, they will require a repair or replacement. It is the nature of building materials, weather conditions, age, and roof treatment. Common roofing problems include: weather damage from hail, high winds, ice or extreme heat, torn or missing roofing shingles from age, leaks around flashing, critters damaging roofing materials, or creating holes.
Q. Who will install our new roof?
A. We have a fantastic crew that will handle your new roof installation with precision and expertise. We strive to be the best at our trade in the Austin area and always put our customers’ needs first. We provide a customer experience based upon integrity, character and trust.
Q. How long will our roofing project take?
A. If you are having a simple roofing repair completed on your home, your roofing work will be scheduled following a roof inspection. If your roof needs protection from weather, tarping can be secured in the meantime. If you need an entirely new roof, the installation itself should only take a day or two depending on the size, condition of the existing underlayment, and weather conditions.
Q. Do you offer free roofing inspections?
A. Driftwood offers complimentary roofing inspections in most cases. Our goals are to educate you on your current roof, to feel safe in your home, and to call us when it’s time to have a roof assessment. We have experts that can guide you with any problems they might find.
Q. Do you provide warranties for your roof installations?
A. We certainly do. A warranty is an essential feature to a good roof. We are confident our installations are top-notch and the shingles we install are top of the line to bring you the best roof for your home.
Q. Do you always install new flashing with a new roof?
A. More than likely you will need new flashing if you need a new roof. We will remove the current damaged or old shingles, and evaluate your flashing as we go forward. The best procedure is to discuss this with your Driftwood roofing professional to understand your roof flashing needs.
Q. Do we need ventilation on our roof?
A. Good ventilation is a key component of a well-installed roof. If your roof is older or has gone through a storm, you will probably need new ventilation due to damage or wear. You might also need to upgrade your ventilation components as ventilation technology can improve over time and you want the best so your roof wears well and is within code requirements for a well installed roof.
