ROOF REPLACEMENT SERVICES
Knowing Your Options
Replacing your roof is an exciting opportunity to increase your home’s value and improve its curb appeal. Since a quality roof can last decades, this is likely a once-in-a-lifetime home improvement project. To get it right, you’ll want to choose the best type of roofing for your home’s design and your region.
Fortunately, Puget Sound residents enjoy relatively mild weather. This opens up more options when it comes to choosing roofing materials. Here are three of the most popular roofs that we install during our replacement projects.
Asphalt shingle roofs have shingles that are made with a fiberglass base and a waterproof asphalt top layer. These roofs are sometimes called composite shingle roofs, and they are economical and easy to install. Three-tab shingles and architectural shingles are the two types of asphalt roofing, and they come in a variety of color options. You’ll need to replace this type of roof every 15 to 20 years.
Cedar shake roofs consist of wooden shingles that give homes a custom, luxury look. When properly installed and maintained, they can easily last up to 30 years.
Metal roofs have come a long way with the help of advanced manufacturing techniques. You can get them made of raised-seam panels or metal tiles. They even come in shapes that mimic the look of expensive slate. Common metal roof materials include galvanized steel and aluminum, but you can also get a metal roof that’s made of copper or tin. It’s not uncommon for these roofs to last 70 years.
When it comes to roofing projects, we strike a balance between efficiency and personalized service. Our project managers get to know you and your home. We offer recommendations about replacement roof types, materials, styles, and colors. Our services include an on-site estimate where we bring samples to you. Seeing is believing when it comes to the quality of materials that we use.
Signs That Your Roof Needs to Be Replaced
Replacing a roof on average costs between $12,000 and $30,000. With such a significant investment on the line, you’ll want to know when you can extend the life of your roof with a quality repair and when you need to replace it.
Here are some sure signs that your roof needs to be replaced.
- Composite shingle roof that’s over 25 years old
- Sagging roof
- Roof that has extensive mold infestation
- Roofs that have large areas of worn shingles
ROOF REPAIR SOLUTIONS
Common Roof Repairs
Your roof is constantly exposed to different types of weather. As a result, you’ll likely need roof repairs at some point due to storm damage or normal wear. Here are some of the most common types of roof repair services that we perform.
Leaks are often hard to find, but experienced roofing specialists can help. One of the common sources of roof leaks are ice dams. An ice dam forms on the roof’s metal drip edging when water freezes on a roof. As the ice melts, the dam prevents the water from draining from the roof. The water gets under a layer of shingles and causes leaks. Platinum Home repairs rotted roofing deck materials. Upon request, we install ice dam protection to prevent the problem from happening again.
Flashing is the material that covers seams and joints around chimneys, skylights, pipes, and vents. When it cracks, water can seep in through those unprotected areas and cause leaks. Tar was used to seal flashing on many older homes. When the seal is broken, you’ll want a contractor to reseal those areas using modern, more effective materials.
Shingles don’t last forever. When the rough surfaces of composite shingles wear off, your home’s roof becomes a little less water tight. Also, missing shingles on your roof’s deck and ridge cap can lead to water leaks if they aren’t replaced in time.
Elements That Impact Roofing Repair Costs
Roofing cost estimates are based on several different elements such as your roof’s size and the materials that are needed to do the repair properly. When roofing contractors estimate repair costs, they estimate materials and labor in squares. One square is 100 square feet of space. Shingles and tiles usually come in bundles. Four bundles cover 100 square feet of roofing area approximately.
