A Few Frequently Asked Questions About Roofing

By in , , , ,

There is a lot to roofing that the general public isn’t aware of and learning the answers to a lot of those questions can mean the difference between a couple of hundred in repairs to thousands for a new roof. Education is a valuable asset especially when it comes to major home costs like your roof.

The following are a few roof questions out of the many we receive every day! Hopefully you will learn something but if you have any questions feel free to call us at 770-419-2222.

What are my options if I decide to reroof?

You have 2 basic options. You can choose a complete replacement, involving a tear off of the old roof or a re-cover of the existing roof, involving only the installation of a new membrane and surfacing. If you’ve already had a re-cover over your original roof, contact us to see if your deck can support a second cover.

How do I know I need a new roof?

Some of the signs you may need a new roof are:
– Missing, cracked, or curled shingles
– Blistering or peeling paint
– High Energy Bills
– Leaks in the attic after heavy rains
– Shingle, sheathing, or siding decay.
– Stains on interior walls or ceiling.
Noticing any of these things warrants a call to a local roof contractor for a full professional roof inspection.

How much is a new roof?

Every roof is different and the answer to this question depends on many factors. The only way to answer this question is to have a professional roof contracto,r like Atlanta Roofing Specialists, to come out and give you a no-cost, no-obligation estimate

What can I do if I spot mildew or discoloration on my roof?

Many home improvement stores sell mildew cleaners that can be applied to your roof with a sprayer to take care of the mildew. They shouldn’t damage your roof in any way. Of course, if there’s a lot, you may want to have it professionally cleaned and contact a roofing professional about keeping your roof in top shape.
