We’ve helped countless homeowners with roof repair, installation and replacement and we have heard all sorts of questions from curious homeowners. At DryTech Roofing, we’ve compiled some of the most popular questions and their answers straight from our trusted roofers.
Do I Have to Replace My Roof?
That depends on the nature of the leak. There are many cases when moisture damage can easily be addressed by minor roof repairs. However, there are indeed cases where roof leaks are caused by problems that are big enough to warrant a total roof replacement.
Can I Fix the Roof on My Own?
Your local roofers say that it’s possible, but highly discouraged. Many roofing problems can only be addressed by professionals who have the skill, experience and equipment to do the job. Many homeowners make the mistake of attempting DIY roof repairs that end up with disappointing results later on because the repairs were not done properly.
Can I Have My New Roof Built Over My Old One?
While many people tout certain roofing materials as easy to install over older roofs, we still recommend having old shingles torn off. By tearing off the existing top layer, it’s possible to check if the underlayment and deck are still in good shape or if they also have to be replaced.
How Much Does a Roofing Project Cost?
There’s no real way to tell how much a complete roof installation project costs because everything depends on a variety of factors. The number of laborers working on the project, the materials used to make the roof and the size and complexity of the roof design can cause the overall project costs to vary greatly. The same things also apply to roof repair and partial roof replacements.
