Commonly Asked Roofing Questions Answered

We’ve compiled a list of the most commonly asked questions to help our clients. If you have further questions, please feel free to call us for more information.

How can you tell if your roof needs to be replaced?
Roofs should be replaced around the 20 to 25-year mark. By this time, important materials begin to fail. If you’re not sure of the age of your roof, there are a few signs it’s time for a replacement. Curled shingles, leaks, missing shingles, mold, internal water damage, dents, and bald spots are good indicators. 

How do you know if your roofing contractor is legitimate?
After natural disasters or large storms, fly-by-night roofers come out of the woodwork. These roofers will show up at your door with a van and promise you the world. Don’t fall for these tricks. It’s always best to choose an established, local company to perform roofing work. This will ensure you know who to turn to if you encounter problems. Read online reviews, ask for recommendations, and do research before choosing a company. It’s also a good idea to find a company with a strong warranty to guarantee the work.

What is the best type of roof?
There is no one answer to this question. The most common options for new roofs include asphalt shingles and metal. Both types have pros and cons. If you’re looking for the most affordable option, shingles may be a good choice. If you’re looking for something modern and unique, a metal roof may be better.

If my roof leaks, do I need a whole new roof?
It depends on why your roof is leaking. Older roofs with multiple worn spots and missing shingles will likely need to be replaced. If you have a leak coming in from the chimney or a single missing shingle, a repair may work just fine. Our contractors will determine how much damage has been caused by the leak and then make recommendations.

How long do roofs last?
Asphalt shingle roofs last from 15 to 25 years. If your roof has hit the 15-year mark, it’s a good time to call a company for a free estimate. Homeowners who are proactive with roofs and inspections will be able to plan better for roof replacements. Metal roofs last 30 to 70 years on average. The long life of metal roofs can be attributed to the durable materials and coatings. Metal roofs cost more up front but pay for themselves in the end.

How long does it take to replace a roof?
Timelines vary by building size, roofing type, and the company performing the work. We can usually replace a residential asphalt shingle roof in one day. Commercial buildings and large homes may take longer. We work as fast as possible to guarantee your life is impacted as little as possible.

What is the cost of a new roof?
This is a good question but it’s the equivalent of asking how much a vehicle cost. The variables involved are endless. Metal roofs, asphalt shingles, colors, styles, textures, designs, slats, and many other factors weigh into this calculation. Luckily, we offer free estimates. With no obligation, we will visit your home and provide an estimate for your roof and desired materials. 


What our customers say about our work

Raleigh and his team did a fantastic job installing our gutters today. We have some difficult eaves in the back that I thought were going to be ugly with gutters but it turned out way better than I thought. On time, on budget and top notch quality.


Precision Seamless Gutters did a great job installing new gutters on our home. They showed up on time, took the old ones down quickly, and installed the new gutters in a timely manner. The team makes good recommendations to ensure that rain water is caught efficiently and then taken away from the foundation of your home. I would highly recommend Raleigh Mayard's Precision Seamless Gutters if you need a new gutter system on your home.

They did a perfect match to my existing gutters. I can't comment on the value because they were my only bid.

They did the installation perfeclt. No complaints.
