Things to Consider While Replacing a Residential Roof

Looking For Roof Repair? Here Are Some Things to Consider.

roof repairYour home is very likely the most important investment you will make in your adult life, so it is important that you take care of it, inside and out. The roof over your head keeps you and your family safe and helps to ensure that you are warm and cozy all year long. If there are issues with your roof such as leaks or weather damage, you may be considering replacing it or roof repair. 

At Darby Enterprises, we understand the importance of your roof, so we want to provide you with the necessary information to make a well-researched decision. This includes common signs that your roof should be replaced and the things you should consider when making the decision to replace the roof.

Does Your Roof Need to be Replaced?

While we don’t want you to get a ladder out and climb up onto the roof, there are some common signs you can see that your roof may be in need of replacement. You should definitely contact our roof repair and replacement experts if you notice any of the following:

  • Water leaking into your home
  • Sagging roof
  • Moss growing on the roofing material
  • Shingles are visibly cracked or damaged
  • Mold has developed in your home
  • Energy bills have increased
  • 20-25 years have passed since the roof was replaced

There are also other, more obvious, and immediate signs that replacement is necessary such as severe weather damage or a fallen tree.

What Should You Consider When Replacing Your Roof?

If you have decided that your roof may be in need of replacement, our Denver roof repair and replacement company can help walk you through the process and options. One of the most important decisions to make about your new roof is the material to be used. We have asphalt shingles, concrete and clay tile, synthetic shake and slate, metal shingles and standing seam panels, and low slope modified membrane available. Each of these has its own advantages that should be discussed in turn during meetings with our Denver roof repair company.

Another consideration is the cost of the new roof. We highly recommend that you shop around and make sure that we are indeed offering you the best price for the highest quality workmanship. Depending on the types of shingles, tiles, slate, or panels you choose, the price will fluctuate. The size of your roof is also a determining factor. Do not be surprised when you receive quotes which range thousands of dollars.

Finally, be sure you know what to expect during and after the roofing process. Both roof repair and replacement will both be loud processes, so you may not want to be at home throughout the day during construction. Also, be sure to ask if the old roof will be removed before the new roof is placed–this helps check for soft spots or rotting wood that can lead to further problems in the future. Lastly, find out if and how the refuse material taken off the roof will be disposed of.
