How much does it cost to replace a roof?

There is no simple answer to how much the bottom line will be for your roofing project. The cost of a new roof depends on several different things:

  1. square footage
  2. the pitch of roof
  3. accessibility
  4. type of roofing material needed
  5. 1- or 2-story home
  6. roof permit and city license
  7. labor

As you can see, this is why it is necessary to have one of our representatives come out and talk with you about your new roof. It is impossible for us to give estimates over the phone.

Can I repair my roof instead of replacing it?

It may be possible to repair your existing roof instead of replacing it. There are a number of factors that need to be determined before deciding if repairing the roof in the way to go. Some things we consider are the type of roofing material, age of the existing roof and type of damage. Our professionals will give you the best option available.

Should I have my old roof removed before a new one is installed?

Although the North Carolina State Building Code does allow for up to two layers of roof materials, any amount of short-term savings you might see from a “layover” roof installation is far outweighed by the longer term peace of mind that comes from knowing that the integrity of the decking has been confirmed and that the existing flashings haven’t been wicking moisture to the roof deck, causing leaks that can lead to decking or siding damage.

We feel that tearing off the existing materials, inspecting the substrate / deck and the general integrity of the roof structure and components, then installing a quality roof is typically the best course of action.

Generally speaking, experts estimate that the life of your new roof will be cut by as much as 20% if it is installed on the top of the existing roof.

Should I have my chimney looked at before installing a new roof?

During the process of re-roofing, we will re-flash your chimney. If we notice any evidence that repairs need to be made to the chimney itself, we will be happy to recommend a chimney/masonry contractor. We can even coordinate our work with that of the chimney contractor, if necessary.

Do I need a permit to have a new roof installed?

Yes in most cases you will need a permit. We will handle getting the permit and making sure you are in compliance with all city and/or county building codes.

What type of roof should I install?

This is probably the toughest question that most homeowners have when deciding on a new roof. The different combinations, types and colors can be overwhelming. In some cases, our professionals may recommend a certain type of roof material that will hold up or last in your area the best. In other cases, it comes down to a personal choice of the look, warranty and colors. We can help you make this decision. We hope you will feel welcome to visit us at our showroom where we have displays of the many shingle options, as well as slate, tile, shake and metal samples. We are conveniently located at 4745 Silabert Ave. off of Monroe Rd., between Sharon-Amity and Wendover Rd., not too far from Cotswold Mall.

How long does it take to replace my roof?

On average, one to two days for residential roofs. There are exceptions to this rule. Roofs that are, larger than average, in need of extensive structural repairs, or roofs where we are installing speciality materials, will of course require more time to complete.

We understand the inconvenience of having people you do not know around your house, on your roof, interrupting your reqularly-scheduled life. When we schedule your roof for replacement, we will be able to give you a fairly accurate estimate of how long it will take. We come to each job site with the man power, knowledge, skill, and equipment to complete your job in a timely manner. Our crews do a very thorough clean-up at the end of each day, and we will not move on to another job until your roof is complete. However, rest assured we will never jeopardize our quality craftsmanship to hurry a job along!
