How well do you know your roof? The crew from Unique Home Solutions says the average life of a roof is 12-15 years. But do you know how to tell if you need a new one? Bill Stevens and Penny Stamps have tips to help you stay on top of your roofing needs.
Here is a quick Q and A session from Unique Home Solutions that should answer many of your questions:
A. The average life of a roof is 12-15 years. You should have your roof inspected on a yearly basis and most definitely if you start noticing signs of damage. A thorough inspection will include your attic as well.
Q: What are some of those signs we need to watch for?
A. Discoloration – dark spots, a large amount of granules in your gutters, broken/missing/loose tiles…and of course if you notice wet spots on your ceiling or down your wall.
Q. What different types of roofing do you offer?
A. We offer both asphalt and metal roofing. The metal roofing is 95% recycled and 100% recyclable, the finish has hi-R heat barrier technology (helps keep the house cooler in the summer, which will help with cooling costs), has a Class 4 hail ration – which is important to keep in mind with spring storms heading our way. Our asphalt shingles are 2x thicker than most 30 year shingles and will withstand 130 mile per hour winds and both of these are flame resistant.
A. We offer lifetime material and labor warranties on both types of roofing and the warranties are never pro-rated and are transferrable if you ever decide to sell your home. The new homeowners will love you for it.
Q: Can you explain more about the “never pro-rated”?
A. This means if you ever experience any problems with your roof, it will be covered completely, even if it is 25 years old!!
