Five Roofing FAQs
-- Should I repair or replace a damaged roof?
The decision to repair or replace broken sections of your rooftop should depend on how extensive is the damage. For a small section of roof damage, such as when a branch is felled in a windstorm and hits your house, you can probably get away with a focused repair. If your roof is damaged from wear and tear, however, it might be best to replace the whole thing with new, stronger materials.
-- Is attic insulation all that important?
Yes, absolutely. When installed correctly, attic insulation can cut utility costs upwards of 20%. The insulation up there prevents hot air from entering and cool air from leaving during the summer, and the inverse during the winter. Not only do you want an adequate amount of insulation in your attic, but you will also want to choose the right material. Not sure if you should choose cellulose, fiberglass, or foam insulation? Ask your roofer for some advice.
-- When is the best time to get my
All the time is pretty much the right time to get your roof inspected, especially in Los Angeles where the weather is typically sunny and mild. The actual wrong time to get your roof inspected is when it is too late and a rainstorm has already rolled through the area. Since roofing has to stand up to the sun, wind, and inclement weather, it can wear down faster than you might think. Getting it inspected once a year is a safe bet to catch any issues before they become big problems.
-- Do I have
options when it comes to choosing the material of my roofing?
You will have a few choices for roofing material depending on the shape, size, and style of your house, and the durability required. You might need asphalt shingles that have high fire resistance, slate roofing to match a unique color, wooden shakes to create a particular look, and so forth. When in doubt, you can either try to best match the material already on your roof or consult with your roofer.
-- What do I look for when comparing roofing estimates?
Finding a trustworthy roofer in your area can be difficult. Before you agree to any roofing job, get an estimate from each company you are considering. On the estimate, you should compare and review approximate time to complete the job, materials used, amount of laborers and if they are subcontracted, and, of course, the overall price.
