Questions You May Have About Your Memphis Roofing Project
Q. Can we install a new roof over the existing roof?
A. Yes, but the preferred method is removal of the old roof. Removal allows for inspection of the substrate, and the elimination of any wet, rough, and/or unstable existing materials.
Q. What kind of material warranties are available?
A. We are GAF Master Elite Certified Memphis Roofer, our shingles have a 50 year material warranty and 25 year factory backed guarantee.
Q. Can you install the roof on during the winter?
A. We can install a roof year ‘round, with only minor adjustments due to severe weather conditions.
Q. What do you do with the old roofing debris?
A. All debris will be recycled when available or disposed of properly at a landfill.
Q. What type of roofing system should I use?
A. We will inspect your home to determine the best methods, materials, warranties, and prices for your individual building.
Q. Do you keep the property clean?
A. Cleanliness is very important. We clean our work area and the surrounding area at the conclusion of every workday.
Q. Do you charge for estimates?
A. No, we provide written estimates free of charge.
Q. Do light colored shingles last longer than darker shingles?
A. Dark shingles should last as long as lighter shingles given that they are installed on a house that has a properly vented attic. Proper attic ventilation is the key component to a longer lasting roof.
Q. What is a ridge?
A. The ridge is the top of your roof, which runs level to the ground (does not have slope). The ridge is usually covered with ridge caps (short shingles laid in a straight line) or, preferably, with a ridge vent.
Q. What are the differences between shingle types?
A. Basic shingle types are:
3-tab shingle – cheapest shingle on the market
– Has a single layer minimum coverage
– Good for customers primarily concerned with price
Dimensional / Architectural Shingle (lifetime 50 year)
– Has a double layer minimum coverage
– Higher quality shingle composed of two layers of material per shingle
Designer Shingle (50 year)
– Minimum double layer coverage
– High quality, thick shingle composed of two layers of material per shingle
Q: How much will my new roof cost?
A: The cost of your roof will depend on size, shape, slope and the number of existing roof layers.
