FAQs

A roof leak during rain can be caused by several factors, including:

  • Damaged Shingles: Cracked, broken, or missing shingles can allow water to seep through.
  • Clogged Gutters: When gutters are clogged, water can back up and seep under the roof.
  • Flashing Issues: Improperly installed or damaged flashing around chimneys, vents, and skylights can cause leaks.
  • Roof Age: Older roofs may have worn out materials that no longer provide adequate protection.
  • Improper Installation: Poor installation practices can lead to weak points where water can enter.
  • Condensation: Poor ventilation in the attic can cause condensation, leading to leaks during heavy rain.

Yes, a hole in your roof is considered an emergency. A hole can lead to:

  • Water Damage: Immediate and severe water damage to your home’s interior.
  • Structural Damage: Prolonged exposure to water can weaken the structural integrity of your home.
  • Mold Growth: Moisture can quickly lead to mold and mildew, which pose health risks.
  • Pest Infestation: A hole can provide easy access for pests and rodents. In such cases.

The need for a permit depends on the extent and type of roof repairs:

  • Minor Repairs: Small repairs, like replacing a few shingles, typically do not require a permit.
  • Major Repairs or Replacement: Significant work, such as a full roof replacement or structural changes, usually requires a permit.
  • Local Regulations: Permit requirements vary by location, so check with your local building department or our team to determine if a permit is needed.

The lifespan of a roof depends on the materials used and the quality of installation:

  • Asphalt Shingles: 15-30 years, depending on the quality of the shingles.
  • Wood Shingles/Shakes: 20-40 years with proper maintenance.
  • Metal Roofs: 40-70 years, with some lasting longer.
  • Clay/Concrete Tiles: 50-100 years, offering exceptional durability.
  • Slate Roofs: 75-200 years, one of the longest-lasting roofing materials. Regular maintenance and inspections can help extend the life of your roof, regardless of the material.
 

In most cases, you do not need to leave your house during roof repairs. However, consider the following:

  • Noise: Roof repairs can be noisy, which might be disruptive if you are working from home or have young children.
  • Safety: If extensive work is being done, it might be safer to stay away from the construction area.
  • Comfort: If the work affects your daily routine, you might prefer to stay elsewhere temporarily. Discussing the scope of work with your roofing contractor can help you decide whether staying home is feasible or if temporary relocation is a better option.
