4 Frequently Asked Questions About Roofing

 

residential roof installation

The prospect of repairing or replacing a roof can be very daunting for most homeowners. It’s undoubtedly one of the biggest investments you’ll make on your home, so you need to make sure you do all the necessary research before embarking on the job. Below we share some of the important questions people ask and should be asking about their roofing job.

What Is The Best Roofing Material?

It’s tricky to give a definitive answer to this question as there are a number of factors to consider. These include the homeowner’s budget, style and design preference, as well as perhaps most importantly, the weather conditions of the area within which the home is situated. Your local roofing service provider should guide you through all of this to determine which commercial or residential roofing is the best for your needs specifically.

How Much Will A New Roof Cost?

Roofing costs will be determined by various decisions the homeowner makes. For example, the type of roof, the design of the roof, as well as the type of material being used for residential roof installation.

Will My Existing Roof Need To Be Removed Before Installation?

Not always. It is possible to install a new roof over the existing one, but it’s best practice to remove all the old material in order to determine the condition of the existing deck. If damages here are left unresolved, it could cause problems further down the line with your new roof.

How Long Will My New Roof Last?

There is no one-age-fits-all answer to this question. Roof lifespans vary greatly based on the type of material used. Asphalt shingle roofing, for example, can last up to 20 – 30 years, while slate tiles can take the homeowner up to 100 years.

It’s best to consult with your Philadelphia roofing service provider to ask the questions that matter and that are relevant to the area. Call our certified roofing expert at Home Genius Exteriors are here for a free consultation should you still have any nagging roofing questions and queries.

“I’m very impressed with Home Genius Exteriors. From the sales opportunity, to ordering, and finally execution everything was smooth sailing. Rob, who sold us our roof, was educated on the product and process. He answered all my detailed questions with patience. A special comment must be left for our Project Manager, Mike, who went above and beyond in every way. He was always available, answers all our questions, thoroughly reviewed the work was done, and even let us know that he is available after the project with any questions. You can tell he truly takes pride in his work. I have worked with others, and so has my family, and I’ll tell you right now we’re sticking with Home Genius Exteriors for all future projects due to Mike’s customer service. Highly recommended company to work with! Our roof is gorgeous.”

“Home Genius Exteriors replaced my entire roof and they were absolutely amazing. They were professional, did quality work, and had great customer service. We had missing shingles and Home Genius was able to complete our roof in less than a week from the estimate! Melissa did the estimate and was very knowledgeable and helped us make the best decision for our home. Casey was the project manager and she communicated all the information we needed, was on top of everything with the project, and was even helping clean up after the work was complete to make sure the yard was safe for my kids. Would definitely recommend Home Genius 10/10 they went the extra mile!”
