Roofing FAQ

Especially if you are a new homeowner, or just want to get to know more about home improvement, you may have a lot of questions about roofing. Such questions can weigh in importance – for example, you might want to know what vinyl siding looks the best on your home, or how long your roofing system will last. In any case, it’s always ideal to be educated about roofing, and in today’s blog, we’ll be answering some frequently asked questions about roofing. If that sounds interesting, keep reading below for more information!

Q: Should I Repair or Replace My Roof?

A: If your roof has sustained small or insignificant damage, such as a missing or curled shingle or two, it’s likely that a roof repair job will suffice. However, if your roof is suffering widespread damage, like major leaking, sagging, or if your roof is old in age, you might want to consider a roof replacement altogether.

We have written a blog that answers this question in full detail – click here to read that article!

Q: Can I Repair or Replace My Roof Myself?

A: While there’s nothing inherently stopping you from doing this, fixing your roof by yourself can be dangerous and is not always recommended. Low-risk maintenance can be completed by yourself, but for bigger projects like roof repair or replacement, you’ll want to get in touch with a professional team like us here at Pinnacle Exteriors!

Q: How Long Will My Roof Last?

A: The answer to this question depends heavily on a number of factors. For example, weather and climate play a massive role in the livelihood of your roof. For example, a roof here in New England, where winters can be particularly long and brutal, may show signs of wear and tear sooner than a roof in Texas, where the climate is a lot tamer.

Q: What is the Best Roofing Material?

A: This is another question we’ve tackled in a separate blog article and a subjective one at that. There are a number of different roofing materials out there, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. For instance, asphalt shingle is one of the most versatile and visually appealing options for homeowners, but it is not known for being as durable or tough as metal roofing, for example. It depends on what you value in your roof, whether its looks, performance, longevity, etc.!
