While a new roof might not be at the top of your list of remodeling priorities, we believe that it should be! These remodels are hardly ever as thrilling as remodeling the master bathroom or the kitchen, but they can help increase the value of your home and prevent any damage from happening within. When it comes to finding roofing professionals who you can trust, you need to turn to Houser Roofing for your Rosenberg home. We’ve compiled some questions that we hear often, so read on to learn more about roofing!
How do I know that I need a new roof?
There are a few determining factors when it comes to deciding when the best time is to replace your roof or repair it. However, there are a few warning signs that almost always mean that some serious work needs to be done:
- Shingles that have begun to curl
- Missing granules or bald spots on the shingles
- Leaking into your home or moisture stains on the ceilings
- Cracked or strangely colored interior drywall
- Decaying shingles
- Missing shingles
- Clearly visible cracks
- Broken shingles
- Rusted or missing flashing
Of course, if you just have an older roof (over 15 years), then it’s never a bad idea to call our roofing professionals to take a look!
If I see these signs, does that mean that I need a brand new roof?
You may need a new roof, but not necessarily. It depends on the state of the shingles and how the previous roofer installed them when that roof was put in. Great shingles can be fixed if the damage is minor, but if they are old and decaying, then it’s time to consider a new roof.
How much will a new roof cost?
This depends on how large your roof is, what materials you choose, and the quality and professionalism of your roofing contactors. However, it’s important to never choose your roofing contractor based on price alone! It should definitely factor into your decision, but choosing the cheapest option might cost more in the long run when it comes to handling future repair costs.
What kind of roofing shingle is going to be the best choice for my roof and my budget?
Of course, this depends on what your roof needs and how you feel about the aesthetics of your home. When you trust Houser Roofing, you can bet that we will give your our recommendations on the best choice of shingle.
