Frequently Asked QuestionsThe more you know about our industry will help
How do I know if I need a new roof?
The National Roofing Contractor’s Association (NRCA) recommends you do a roof inspection at least two times a year. Once in the spring and then again in the fall.
The best place to begin is inside your house – grab a flashlight and make a trip to the attic.
Here are four things to look for on the inside:
1) Places where the roof deck is sagging
2) Signs of water damage or leaking
3) Dark spots and trails
4) Outside light showing through the roof
Next, go outside and do an Exterior Check:
5) Visually inspect your roof for cracked, torn, bald or missing shingles
6) Scan the roof for loose material or wear around chimneys, vents, pipes or other penetrations.
7) Watch out for an excessive amount of shingle granules (they look like large grains of sand) in the gutters – this is a sign of advanced wear
8) Check for signs of moisture, rot or mold
9) Examine the drainage, and make sure gutters and downspouts are securely attached. Also ensure all drains are open and allow water to exit, and all gutters and downspouts are free of debris
10) Check that all bath, kitchen and dryer vents go entirely outside of your home, not just into the attic space.
If you are still unsure, the Roof-Cats would be happy to provide a free consultation.
Remember, when the welfare of your home is at stake, it is better to act early – before you have no choice.
When is the best time to shingle a roof?
Yes. Particularly with asphalt shingles, which require a combination of time and warm temperature to properly set.
Book your roofing project as early as possible to ensure spring or summer-time service. As is human nature, homeowners commonly set aside their roofing project until autumn, leaving them with an inferior final product. In addition, roofing is a high-demand industry and autumn often sees many companies accumulate long waiting lists.
