When it comes to the roofs on our homes, it can be difficult to decide when it is time for a complete tear off or a new shingle job. By just a simple glance from ground level, it probably looks like your shingles are in great shape and can protect the plywood underneath for many more years. The truth is, however, the hot Florida sun gives our shingles a heavy beating that no other state compares with. The general rule of thumb when it comes to the lifespan of shingles is that they should last for about 20 to 25 years. That doesn’t necessarily mean that shingle roofs are a bad investment. They do just as good of a job protecting the integrity of your roof as any other more expensive roofing material, and they cost substantially less. We are glad to share these facts with you at Chase Roofing. We take great pride in honesty, low prices, and of course, customer satisfaction.
When it is Time to Replace My Shingle Roof?
The main thing when it comes to determining if it is time to replace your roof is to have a professional roof inspection performed. We have been in business since 2002. Therefore, our roofers have gone through rigorous training and developed the keen eyes needed to catch imperfect shingles that are near or have exceeded their lifespan. When our technicians come to your residence and perform the initial inspection, we will be completely up front with you. If we believe your roof just needs a little fixing up or some maintenance such as replacing missing shingles or filling in holes to prevent leaks, then that is exactly the work we will do. That is as long as you give the ok. We may be the roofing pros, but your property is your domain, and we don’t want to do any work that you don’t approve. Ultimately, you are the king of your castle, we just want to make sure your castle can stand up to mother nature’s battering.
What if I Need a New Roof?
If your roof cannot be salvaged, then we will let you know all that will need to be done to install a new one and will keep you up to date every step of the way, including a detailed list of what every step will cost. Generally speaking, installing a new roof involves tearing off the old shingles including all the tar paper. From there, the plywood is examined and determined if it is ok to put the new roofing material on top of it, or if the plywood itself needs to be replaced due to rot. After all that, new tar paper will be laid out, followed by your new shingles. Finally, your new roof is complete – after we clean up the job site leaving it cleaner than we found it.
