At All Star Pro Exteriors, have seen an increase in the number of questions from home buyers, home sellers and homeowners when to replace your roof. As Autumn and Winter storms begin to be a real threat to home owners, it is a good time to consider roof replacement.
However, All Star Pro Exteriors is noticing that weather isn’t the only source of roofing inquiries. Insurance companies are becoming more and more diligent about houses having safe roofs and so it’s almost impossible to buy a house without having a new roof on it.
When to Replace Your Roof
When damage is discovered by a home inspector or appraiser, it is important homeowners understand they can contact a roofer who will go out to meet the insurance adjuster.
A quality roofing company can help the adjuster find the damage and make sure there’s no additional damage to gutters or siding. Since roof damage is often not visible from ground level, only having an insurance agent on site can leave the home owner in a compromised position if the damage cannot be seen from the ground.
A Free Inspection Lets You Know When to Replace Your Roof
All Star Pro Exteriors will do a free inspection to access the state of the roof and then if damage is found, we will work with the homeowner’s insurance company to facilitate filing a claim.
All Star Pro Exteriors offers several different types of roofs to meet the needs of our customers. Standing seam metal roofs provide a modern farm house type of look that is gaining popularity. They are durable and long lasting but more expensive than shingled roofs. The two main type of shingled roofs are three tab and architectural shingles. Just like in the lawn care business, roofing styles change as time goes on. People are moving away from a three tab roof because they are prone to leaks and not as durable as architectural or dimensional shingles.
Speaking of durability, rain and sun damage are the two main factors that age and damage a roof. However, improper ventilation in the attic can also be an issue. At All Star Pro Exteriors, we only offer the top quality metal and shingles on the market and we always pay special attention to proper ventilation so that whatever type of roof you choose, it will last as long as possible.
