Frequently Asked Questions
When Should I Replace My Roof?
If your roof is failing, it may be time for a new one. You can observe some warning signs that your roof is starting to be past its best before you ever experience a leak. Depending on the type of roof you have, a 15 to 20-year-old roof could be at risk for failing. If your shingles are cracked, balding, curled, cupped, collecting algae streaks or mold, or your roof simply looks worn or aged, replacing your roof may be a wise choice. If you are unsure about your roof, one of our professionals can come and assess the state of your roof.
How Long Does a Metal Roof Last?
Depending on the material, a metal roof could last between 40-70 years. Longevity is one of the key benefits why some homeowners choose metal.
How Long Does a Asphalt Shingle Roof Last?
Not all shingles are created equally. 3-tab asphalt shingles typically last 15-20 years. Architectural asphalt shingles could last between 20-25 years. Higher end architectural shingles can last 25+ years. The longer lasting varieties may require a greater investment upfront, but many homeowners find that investment to be worthwhile long-term.
Will My Homeowner’s Insurance Cover Roof Leaks?
This may vary based upon your specific policy. Generally, homeowner’s policies will detail specific circumstances where they will cover a roof leak. They may not cover a roof replacement over a leak, but they may pay for a repair of interior damage caused by the leak. We can help you navigate the process of working with your insurance to get the best result possible.
How Much Does a Roof Replacement Cost?
The cost of roof replacement is dictated by square footage and material choice so there is not a one-size-fits-all answer. We can send out one of our professionals to help you determine the material desired so then we can calculate an estimate based upon your square footage.
How Much Does Roof Repair Cost?
The cost of repair can vary greatly based upon the extent of the damage. Based upon data from around the country, the typical homeowner spends an average of $650 on a roof repair. Before you get stuck on this number, realize that your repair could be lower or higher than this number depending on your specific situation. The best way to get a true estimate is for us to send a roofing professional to your home to see the issue firsthand.
How Long Does It Take to Replace a Roof?
The length of your installation will depend on the size of your roof and the roofing material. Also, weather can impact the speed of your installation. On average, you can expect your roof to be completed in 1-3 days. Before we begin your roof, we will provide a projected timeline so you will have a clear idea.
Will My Homeowner’s Insurance Cover Roof Replacement?
As mentioned previously, every homeowner’s policy may vary some so the best way to know for sure is to contact your insurance company. In general, homeowner’s policies cover roof replacement, no matter the age of your roof, if the damage is considered an “act of nature.” If your roof is old and fails, policies will not cover the replacement because of a clause related to general maintenance responsibility of the homeowner. We are happy to help you navigate your claim with insurance to achieve the best outcome.
How Much Does It Cost to Have My Gutters Cleaned?
Gutter cleaning cost varies based upon the linear feet of your gutters. A two-story home vs. a one-story home will likely be more expensive.

How Much Do Seamless Gutters Cost?
This cost varies based upon linear feet of gutters and the material you select. Copper gutters are typically the most expensive. Aluminum and steel are mid-ground. Vinyl are the least expensive option. The average homeowner may spend between $1,500-$2,500. The most accurate way to know the cost will always be allowing our team over for an estimate.
How Often Should I Clean My Gutters?
The standard answer would be twice a year, once in late spring and once in early fall. If you have a bunch of pine trees around your home, probably cleaning every 3 months would be advisable because pine trees drop their needles year-round.
How Can I Keep Leaves Out of My Gutters?
There are a couple ways to combat leaves. First off, regular gutter cleaning can help. Keeping your trees trimmed back from your home may be helpful. Gutter guards/covers are a great option for keeping your gutters free of leaves without constant maintenance. We offer a variety of options to keep you gutters clean all year round. Please contact our team to analyze options and pricing.
