Answers To 3 Common Questions About Replacing Your Roof
Whether you have made the decision to replace your home’s roof or it urgently needs to be replaced due to storm damage, you probably have some questions about the process. Every single decision, from finding the right contractor to choosing the right material, can be daunting! Elevated Roofing and Siding can make many improvements to your home, but roofing is truly our specialty. Here we are going to answer some questions you may have about getting a new roof installed on your home.
1. How Do I Know if I Should File an Insurance Claim?
The best way to know if you should file an insurance claim is to schedule an appointment with Elevated, in order for us to carefully inspect your roof. There are many factors involved, but you can rest assured that we will always give you our professional opinion upon inspection. If you do end up qualifying for an insurance claim, we will gladly walk you through that process and even communicate directly with your insurance company.
2. How Long Does a Roof Installation Take?
It usually takes 1-2 days to replace a roof, with many roof replacements finishing up in one day. Larger roofs may take up to three days. There are other factors that could affect the duration of a roof replacement, such as the weather and complexity of your roof. When our experts provide you with a roof replacement estimate, they should be able to determine the approximate timeline for the installation.
3. How Long Will My New Roof Last?
The lifespan of your roof will depend on the materials you choose as well as the care and maintenance that you invest into it. Typically, a properly installed shingle roof will last about 25 years. A new metal roof will last about 50 years, or double the amount of time that a shingle roof is expected to last. The best way to get as many years as possible out of your roof is to always take care of the small repairs and maintenance needs that could lead to bigger issues down the road.
