How many years do I have left on my old residential or commercial roof?
This is a question we get asked a lot but there is no standard answer that is always correct. Like many things in life there are variables. The best we can do is provide some guidelines to equip you with reasonable expectations.
How soon can you start?
Although it would be unrealistic to quote an answer to this question, it’s one every homeowner wants to know, so we can give some general guidelines to the best answer possible before you call us. We can say up front that you will have an exact answer to that question when you get an estimate from us.
What about the money? (Down payments, deposits, final payments, etc.)
Trust is at the heart of our business model. When you put your trust in us to install a roof on your home, we put our trust in you to get paid. We do not require a down payment or deposit.
In fact, we highly recommend you to be wary of any contractor that does require a substantial deposit up front.
Which shingles do you recommend?
We definitely use GAF & Malarkey more than any other shingle, but it’s not always that simple. We will answer this question upon evaluating your roof and make a recommendation specifically suited to your needs, budget, and home structure.
What about building permits?
The two most common questions we get about permits for a roofing project are:
1. Will I need a building permit for a new roof? Yes
2. If so, who will be pulling the permit? Your licensed contractor, normally.
What should be done prior to the roofing installation?
We recommend that you remove or secure any fragile or irreplaceable items on the walls or ceilings inside your home. During the installation of your roof, there will be some vibration on your walls and ceilings and we will not be responsible for any damage to unsecured items that are disturbed or fall. Your roofing installation will begin in the morning on the scheduled day and we ask that you move your vehicles out of the driveway or garage and onto the street the night before.
How do you protect my home from damage during the roofing installation?
Protecting your home during a roofing installation is most important. Material haulers we use to transport the materials are loaded up with an arsenal of protective materials: 4×8 sheets of wood, lumber, tarps, and any other materials deemed necessary that we determine during the original inspection of your roof. Extra care is given to the setup before the first crew member ever climbs a ladder to begin your roofing project.
Are you licensed and insured?
State law in Wyoming requires that if you’re working on any roof other than your own, you are required to be licensed and Insured.
How many nails are used per shingle?
Most shingle manufacturers recommend at least four nails per shingle and six in high wind areas such as Florida and Oklahoma. We use 4-6 nails per shingle, depending on the area and steepness of the roof.
Should I be concerned about nails?
We do our best and use meticulous methods to assure your yard and driveway are free of loose nails. Do we always get them all, that would be impossible but we do try!
Are my gutters going to be left clean after the job?
Your gutters are cleaned by hand after your old roofing material has been torn off and after installation of the new roofing material, another cleaning is performed and your gutters are cleaned a second time.
What is synthetic underlayment and why is it better then felt paper?
Synthetic underlayment is a high tech, high performance layer of material installed prior to the shingles on areas of the roof decking not covered by ice and water shield. The purpose of underlayment is to absorb asphalt from the shingle and provide an extra level of water resistence. Until more recent years, felt paper was the standard. However, advancements in roofing technology have brought about the synthetic underlayments which consistently outperform and out test traditional felt paper.
What about ventilation?
Proper ventilation has numerous benefits and solves multiple problems. It saves you money on your heating and cooling bills, extends the life of your roofing, and even protects your health by preventing mold that would otherwise form in your attic and under your shingles.
Let’s start with the heat factor. A 90° summer day does not equal a 90° attic but a 140° attic without proper ventilation. This doesn’t just escalate your cooling bills, imagine the stress placed on your asphalt roofing shingles which will buckle and fail prematurely. Proper ventilation is your solution to this problem.
Which are better, ridge vents or box vents?
The question should be… which is better for particular types of roofs. For example, if your home has cathedral ceilings, the ridge vent is the only viable solution. On a roof where four slopes converge to a single ridge as shown above, box vents are the best choice. Many homes are designed where either a ridge vent or box vent will work equally well. Considering the fact that ridge vents are more aesthetically pleasing, our recommendation would be the ridge vents.
What about the weather?
In theory, roofing shingles can be installed in any weather. Considering the colder temps in Wyoming, there’s no denying that warm temperatures are best, so extra care and precautions must be taken in much of our Wyoming weather. On the warm and sunny days common in spring, fall, and summers, shingles seal to each other right away. As the temperatures climb higher with intense sun extra care is required to avoid scarring during the installation. When the temperatures drop, the shingles become stiff and extra careful nail placement is required.
What are ice dams?
It begins with the interaction between warm and freezing cold air. Heat always seeks cold. In the summertime, understanding that principle helps you realize it’s the heat coming in rather than the cool getting out. In the wintertime, most people think the cold air is getting in when it is really the heat going out.
What is ice and water barrier and why do I need it?
Ice and water barrier is a self adhering rubberized membrane that protects your roof from leaking due to excessive water conditions. These conditions occur during wind driven rain and even more so during water back from ice dams.
There are several areas of your roof especially susceptible to the water penetration that ice and water barrier will serve to prevent. The entire perimeter of your roof near the eaves is the most obvious during the winter when you can sometimes see the ice dams from the ground. Other areas you may not think about skylights, chimneys, and all the “channels” where roof lines merge.
