Frequently Asked Questions

Below are the frequently asked questions from our clients for roofing solutions, and our answers to these questions.

All too often, roof system problems are discovered after leaking or other serious damage occurs. Periodic (twice-a-year) inspections often can uncover cracked, warped or missing shingles; loose seams and deteriorated flashings; excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters or downspouts; and other visible signs of roof system problems. Indoors, look for cracked paint, discolored plasterboard and peeling wallpaper as signs of damaged roof areas.

Not necessarily. Leaks can result from flashings that have come loose or a section of the roof system being damaged. A complete roof system failure, however, generally is irreversible and a result of improper installation or choice of materials or the roof system installation is inappropriate for the home or building.

Most new roof systems are designed to provide useful service for about 20 years. Some roof system types, such as slate, clay tile and certain metal (e.g., copper) systems, can last longer.

The price of a new roof system varies widely, depending on such things as the materials selected, contractor doing the work, home or building, location of the home or building, local labor rates and time of year. Keep in mind that price is only one factor, and it must be balanced with the quality of the materials and workmanship.

For each roofing material, there are different grades and corresponding prices. There also are a variety of styles and shapes. You need to look at the full product range and make a choice based on your budget and needs.

Within the roofing profession, there are different levels of expertise and craftsmanship. Insist on a contractor who is committed to quality work

Some exterior remodeling projects can be messy, especially when it comes to roof replacement. We take care to cover the areas around your home, including your AC unit and driveway. Hundreds of nails are removed when roofing comes off and we do our best to have them contained. After the project is finished, we clean up after ourselves and inspect the area to ensure all debris was removed.

Customers choose us time after time because of the quality of our workmanship, friendly customer service, affordable rates and the pride we take in our work. We’ve been remodeling exteriors on Maryland and Pennsylvania homes for a long time now and were able to systematize our process, which allowed us to do the work faster and more efficiently.
