A: The following are things that may indicate that your roof needs replacing:
• Missing, cracked or curling shingles
• Shingle, sheathing or siding decay
• Sagging roof areas (possibly rotting wood)
• Leakage in the attic after heavy rains
• Stains on interior walls or ceilings

Q: How long does it take to replace a roof?
A: The time required to replace a roof depends on the size, type, and difficulty of the roof and can take anywhere from a few days to more than a week. The time involved is substantially affected by the weather as well as the number of inspections required by the city. Before we begin each job we advise the client on how long we expect the job to last.

Q: How long can I expect my roof to last?
A: The lifespan of your roof can depend on a few different variables: Installation, Roof type, the current condition of your roof, proper maintenance and upkeep, ventilation, and the environment or conditions of your surroundings.

Wood Shingles/Shakes: 10-40 years (depending on shingles purchased and weather conditions)
Slate: 30-100 years
Clay/Concrete Tiles: 20+ years
Metal Roofing- 15-40 years

Also, it is always a good idea to check warranty coverage with your contractor.
