Unless it’s a very minor repair or you are properly trained to complete a roof repair, we highly recommend calling a local exterior company such as CHS! Roofing is a crucial trade and if not fixed correctly, a small repair can cause further, lingering interior issues.
The cost of fixing or replacing a roof can vary anywhere from $250-$30,000+ depending on size, difficulty, required materials, etc. Obviously, that is an extreme range! That’s why we provide free estimates and inspections to all of our customers.
Regular roof inspections are recommended at least once a year, preferably in the spring or fall, to identify any potential issues early on and prevent costly repairs. However, it’s also important to have your roof inspected after severe weather events, such as storms or heavy winds.
The lifespan of a roof depends on various factors, including the material used, quality of installation, climate, and maintenance. Generally, asphalt shingle roofs last around 20 to 30 years, while metal, tile, or slate roofs can last significantly longer, ranging from 50 to over 100 years with proper care.
The lifespan of siding varies based on the material. However, signs such as cracking, warping, rot, or significant fading may indicate that it’s time for a replacement. Additionally, if you notice recurring issues with moisture or insulation, it’s advisable to consult a professional to assess the condition of your siding.
