DO I REPLACE MY ROOF?
It is estimated that roofing can cost anywhere from $ 5,000 to about $ 10,000.
Before re-roofing, you'll want to know if it's really necessary.
The life of a roof depends on the materials used and the quality of the installation.
The repair depends on the type of roof.
The most used roof is the asphalt shingle roof. Less expensive, it is also the one that wears the fastest.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF A DEGRADATION?
To find out if the roof needs to be changed, several points must be checked.
This will allow you to know if a complete repair is necessary or if the replacement of the damaged shingles is enough.
Brown spots or the presence of foam on the roof, shingles missing or damaged, granules on the floor or in the gutter, leakage, may be signs of wear of the roof.
Water infiltration does not necessarily mean that the roof needs to be redone, but may require work in the attic.
If the attic is poorly insulated or poorly ventilated, ice can build up in the winter and cause leaks later.
Wear also depends on the age of the roof and the weather conditions to which it has been exposed.
The presence of trees too close to the roof can also accelerate aging.
If a complete repair is necessary, to put a new roof on a damaged roof is to be prohibited. It will therefore be necessary to completely remove the old roof before proceeding with the work.
The ideal is to inspect regularly its roof (about 2 times per year) to check its wear and anticipate the work, knowing that it is better to do in the summer.
It is advisable for it to climb on its roof to check for wear, as well as check the condition of the attic and plumbing.
WHAT IF MY ROOF SHOWS PREMATURE WEAR SIGNS?
In the event of premature aging of your roof, know that there are guarantees covering the materials and the execution of the works.
The life of a roof depends on the materials and the quality of the work.
