Roofing FAQ

It can be difficult to tell if your roof needs repair or replacement. Generally, if your roof shows minor damage or wear, it may only need to be repaired. Examples of issues that can be fixed are algae growth, missing shingles, minor leaks, and fascia damage, which is when the area of the roof located along your gutters is damaged. In many cases, our team can quickly replace the damaged shingles and ensure your roof’s integrity. 

However, larger issues, such as curling or buckling shingles, storm damage, sagging, extensive granule loss, and large areas of cracked or missing shingles, are signs the roof must be replaced. Often, these factors demonstrate that the roof has been compromised, and it is only a matter of time before more issues arise. 

It can be difficult to spot these signs on your own, so you should call in a professional from our team to provide an official inspection. We can deliver our honest results based on our expert opinion. 

On average, a roof replacement completed by a professional team takes about one to two days. Still, it may last longer, depending on the size of the project, the material, and the weather. 

Siding FAQ

If you notice that a small portion of your siding has become damaged, our team can repair or replace that siding without having to replace all of your siding. Examples of damage that may only require a small-scale replacement include: 

  • There is cracked or chipped siding
  • A small area of rot is localized to one area. 
  • You notice small areas of separation between the boards. 

When we perform an examination, we can let you know if the damage is localized or if it would be more beneficial to perform a complete siding replacement on your property. 

There are a few different types of siding available to choose from, varying in appearance and durability. Our options allow you to choose what siding fits your style and budget. These include: 

  • Vinyl and insulated vinyl siding
  • LP SmartSide
  • Hardie Board Siding
  • Natural Wood Siding
  • And more!

We can work with you to choose the best siding for your property and budget. 

There are a few different ways you can tell if your siding needs to be replaced. For example, if you are having to repair your siding continually, it may be time to get a replacement. Repairing your siding provides a temporary solution and may become more costly in the long run. New siding is a long-term investment for your home. Plus, it can help reduce your energy bill. 

Another indicator is large areas of cracked, buckled, or warped siding and signs of rot. Replacing your siding before the damage becomes extensive and leads to more extensive issues. 

Window Replacement FAQ

Windows, on average, last about 15 to 20 years with adequate maintenance. Around this time, you may notice the seals are splitting, leading to higher energy bills and water seepage. Furthermore, if you notice any damage to your windows, such as cracking, rotting, or mold buildup, it’s likely time for a window replacement. 

Single-pane windows are effective at protecting your home from the outdoor air to an extent. However, double-pane windows provide an extra layer of protection against the elements, which is beneficial for your energy bill. 

Double-pane windows are most costly up front, but because they can help reduce your energy bill, they pay for themselves in no time.
