Exterior Source is a premier home improvement company that specializes in installing, repairing and replacing roofing systems. As a homeowner, you probably have several questions about getting a new roof, as well as the whole repair-or-replacement quandary. We’ll answer your frequently asked questions here.
How much does a new roof cost?
The price of your new roof actually depends on three things: the size of the roof, its slope and the shape of your existing roofing system. The material also plays a significant role in determining how much you’ll have to pay for a new roof. Asphalt shingles remain a solid choice since they’re affordable and they have respectable physical and elemental resilience.
Should I do a re-roof or complete replacement?
Re-roofing is ideal if your current roofing system is still relatively new and you’re addressing isolated damage. Roof replacement, on the other hand, is necessary if there’s extensive damage to the roof or if your roof is nearing the end of its operating life span.
For asphalt shingles, the 20-year mark is the point at which replacements are more economical than re-roofing or repair since these will cost as much as a replacement. And in cases like this, it’s better to switch to a new roof for better protection.
Is it necessary to get a roofing warranty?
While we will guarantee professional workmanship when we install or replace your roof, it still pays to get a warranty. It protects you from surprises, such as a manufacturer’s defect. As a GAF Master Elite™ roofing contractor, we offer the Golden Pledge® Limited Warranty. This gives you a 50-year coverage on materials, as well as a 20-year coverage on installation.
At Exterior Source, our experienced crew will make sure your roof installation and replacement runs smoothly from start to finish. Give us a call at (804) 275-5323 for more information on our services. Our roofing contractor serves homeowners in Richmond.
