If you’re a new homeowner, you likely don’t know a lot about how your roofing system works. Why would you? In the past, your roof would have been cared for by your property manager or rental company.
What we can tell you is that your roofing system is one of the most important components of your home. Not only does it help keep rain, sleet and hail on the outside of your home, it protects the interior from things like mold, mildew and other types of moisture-related structural damage.
For this blog post we wanted to address some of the more frequently asked questions we get from new Denver homeowners, about their roofing system.
How long will it last?
The average lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof will be 20 years or more, but the overall lifespan will be impacted by several factors. If a homeowner lets mold or moss grow on top of their roof, unchecked, this will shave a few years off the lifespan. If the roof isn’t maintained (ie: missing and/or broken shingles aren’t replaced, leaks aren’t addressed promptly, and the gutters aren’t maintained), this will also shorten the lifespan of your roofing system. If you have a roof that’s made of an alternate material and/or you have further questions about how long your roofing systems should last, give us a call and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
How much will it cost to reroof my home?
This is a difficult question to answer, sight unseen. There are many things that will play a role in the cost to reroof your home. This will include the square footage of your home, the types of materials you want to use for the job and the experience of the contractor you hire to do the job. When it’s time to reroof your home be sure to get several quotes from local, reputable roofing companies. You’ll also want to make sure you ask for references and make sure the contractors you’re speaking with are both licensed and insured.
How long will reroofing take?
Most roofing companies agree that the average job can be completed in three to four days, but there are several other factors that will also play into the exact time frame. When you contact roofing companies to provide you with a cost estimate, ask them to provide you with an estimated completion time.
