When it comes to costs, there are a lot of variables that lead to roof repair prices varying. Your roof’s pitch, type of shingles, the amount of layers of shingles on the roof, and the general condition of the roof all contribute to the pricing of roof repairs. Typically, the best way to see how much maintenance to your roof will cost is to schedule a free estimate with a local roofing company like ASI Construction.

Depending on your roofing needs, there are many options for quality products to service your roof. There are several roofing materials options, such as asphalt shingles, TPO membrane, metal roofing, and roof coatings. With each material comes its advantages, price points, and level of expertise needed for installment. Whether you are looking for roofing for commercial property or residential homes, ASI Construction can explain the right choice for your project.

Technically, it is possible to layer one set of shingles on top of another. However, doing this is setting you up for future roofing problems. Roofers typically recommend for homeowners to choose to remove old shingles before installing a new roof. If your current shingles are damaged, you will need to have them stripped when installing the new roof. Additionally, if you already have two layers of shingles on your roof, the shingles will have to come off to install the new roofing.

If you’re concerned that your roof has damage, several signs may reveal the state of your roof. The first step is to arrange for  an interior and exterior roof check to identify any cracked shingles, dark stains, sagging, rotting/mold, or leaks/water damage. It’s also helpful to determine the age of your roof, even if there aren’t any apparent spots of corrosion or loss. Most of the time, it’s necessary to call a local roofing company to come to evaluate your roof’s condition. We at ASI Construction offer annual roofing inspections where our roofing expert will conduct a thorough assessment on your roof.

This question about 30-year shingles (and the same for 50-year and lifetime shingles) is a commonly misconstrued concept to most homeowners. In short, most 30-year shingles do not last 30 years in perfect condition. Manufacturers base the life expectancy of a 30-year shingle on a shingle placed in ideal conditions, such as without strong winds and in minimal sun exposure. Also, warranties for 30-year shingles don’t typically last for 30 years, either. You can always ask our experts at ASI Construction for more information on specific shingle brands, material types, and warranties.

Replacing your roof is a big investment and not one you should delay. Failing to replace your roof when it’s time can lead to thousands of dollars in home repairs from leaky shingles and structural damage. Here are a few signs it’s time for a new roofing system:

 There are wet spots on your ceiling, in the attic, or in crawl spaces.

  • Your chimney’s masonry has cracked.
  •  Shingles are curled, buckling, missing or broken.
  • Your shingles are blistering.
  • Shingles are badly aging and missing granules.
  •  You notice signs of roof rot, such as a spongy feeling when you walk on it.
  • There is water backup in your eaves.
  • Your flashing is damaged or completely compromised.

Once you decide you need a new roof, the most important decision you can make is your contractor. Find a trusted roofing company to avoid harmful contractor scams and get the most out of your money. A new roof isn’t a small investment – the right contractor can give you a pleasant, rewarding experience and a roof that will last for decades without issue. Doing your research before hiring a roofer can protect you from roofing disasters.

First, ask around for a good roofing contractor. Ask your friends and family members for suggestions, or post the question on social media. Word of mouth is one of the most reliable ways to judge the character of a roofing contractor since you’re speaking to people who have already worked with the company. Also, look at the roofer’s reviews and testimonials from previous customers.

Next, investigate the company itself. Look for manufacturer designations, positive ratings with the Better Business Bureau, and proper licensing and insurance. A contractor without these accreditations or one that refuses to show you licensing is probably a scam artist – or at least not the best quality contractor on the market.

There are a variety of new roofs to choose from for any style home. You can select your material, color, and style, depending on your needs and personal preferences. Select metal roofing, forged iron, traditional shingles, RoofGuard, and more in an array of stunning colors. We can help you select the perfect roof for your home or commercial building.

If you do need to replace your roof, there are a few small steps you can take for a smooth process. First, remove loose items from your walls and shelves. Hammering up on your roof can sometimes cause enough vibration to make unsecured items fall. Clear your driveway as much as possible and the areas around your home. There is a chance roofing materials could fall into the driveway. Your contractor will also appreciate the extra space for work vehicles and equipment. ASI Construction completes most new roofing jobs the very same day for minimal interruption to your life. A quality roofing contractor will take care of the rest – you just have to sit back and enjoy your brand-new roof.

Signs of siding that are beginning to go bad include things like fading, chalking, separation at the seams, warping, and moisture appearing on the inside of your home. Contact us at 800-509-4274 for assistance!

Roofs can increase your curb appeal greatly. They do not have to be a part of the home but can beautify your home and help it sell. A new roof can also increase your home’s value. A faulty roof can become a barrier to selling your home.

Repairing a damaged roof can be a lot cheaper than a full replacement. If there is only minor damage, you should hire a contractor to make whatever repairs need to be made. If you’re unsure of the extent of the damage, a roofer can easily spot potential problems and recommend repairs.

All roofing materials will eventually deteriorate and erode, especially in harsh sun and weather conditions. However, you can absolutely extend the life of your roof with proper maintenance. The mistake most homeowners make is to ignore small repairs as needed. A missing shingle takes little time and cost to fix; but ignoring that missing shingle may allow water to seep in, debris to accumulate and pry other shingles loose, or damage to affect the underlayment. Taking care of small problems can prevent the larger problems for decades.

No, if we are installing vinyl siding, we will go over your existing siding and you will never have to paint again.

If we are installing James Hardie® siding, we will remove your existing siding on your home and replace it with James Hardie® and you’ll most likely never paint again.

That is the great thing about our product. Not only can we wrap your home in new long-lasting siding but we can also take care of your soffits and eaves, making the exterior of your home virtually maintenance-free.

This really comes down to preference, and in some cases, your HOA rules! While tile roofing materials have traditionally been longer-lasting, newer asphalt shingle products have proven to be nearly as durable, as well as often easier to repair. Tile and asphalt shingle have differences in price, weight, longevity, and care requirements – so we definitely recommend talking to a licensed roofing contractor about which is best for you. Still, you can expect a quality asphalt shingle roof to last for 25 years or more.

Gutters are an important part of your roofing system because they help keep water away from the foundation and walls of your home. They do this by collecting rainwater runoff from the roof in long, narrow troughs that extend down to the ground. The gutters then carry the water away from your house to a designated storm drain.

Some of the most common signs of a bad roofing job include roof leaks, missing or damaged shingles, improperly sealed joints, and water stains on ceilings and walls. If you notice any of these problems, it is important to contact your roofing contractor as soon as possible for repair services.

If you do not identify any damage on your roof before it becomes a leak, there are several ways to identify water intrusion. If possible, head up to the attic and check the wood framing for signs of moisture such as dark spots or rot. You can also look at insulation to see if it is matted, damp, or eroding. All can be signs of a roof leak. During and after major rain storms, you can also walk through your home and look at the ceilings and walls for signs of staining, bulging or drips. Should you see any of these, call for professional assistance immediately.

Periodic visual self-inspections and annual professional roof inspections are invaluable to a homeowner. As discussed, a small problem can become a major issue if not addressed. Regular inspections allow you to make minor repairs before they become larger projects, and before a small leak becomes a major leak or a mold issue.
