Yes. One of our Roofing Specialists will come to your home sometime within your appointment window and assess your roof’s needs. This consists of inspecting your roof for problem areas and taking photos of their findings. They will be looking for things such as areas that could cause a roof leak, nail pops,shingle lifting, missing shingles, brittle and aged shingles, storm damage, granular loss, etc. They will talk with you about your roof and any concerns you may have as well as collect any other information needed to prepare your quote proposal. If necessary, they can also perform an interior inspection where they inspect your walls and ceilings for possible water damage. Once they are finished, they will spend the next day or so preparing your quote proposal and email it over to you for approval. If you have any questions you can reach out to them or if you approve the quote proposal, you can electronically sign it in order to move forward with your roofing project.

The color you choose for your roof will be best if it coincides with your home’s color scheme. Common colors tend to do better for the resale of your home. You will want to take into consideration your brick color, gutter color, siding, fascia and any other exterior features of your home. Some of our most popular color choices include Weathered Wood, Moire Black, Charcoal Black and Driftwood. There are many great shingle colors to choose from and your project manager will provide you with color samples to use and reference while deciding. If you find a color you are interested in and would like a bigger picture, we can even give you an address of a roof in your area that has that roof color already installed by us so you can see a more complete roof example.
A metal roof is a great option to consider as it lasts much longer than an asphalt shingle roof, is energy efficient, environmentally friendly and withstands inclement weather well. Talk with your project manager to determine if a metal roof installation is right for you or visit our blog section to learn more about the pros and cons of metal roofs.
The most common types of roofs customers choose are asphalt shingle roofs and metal roofs. Asphalt shingles come in a variety of types and qualities but most people prefer a dimensional/laminate shingle. This gives a multi-dimensional look to the roof and enhances the curb appeal while providing stronger protection to the home. Certainteed offers top of the line dimensional shingles and some of our favorites can be found on our products page. We also install standing seam metal roofs which come in larger panels that fit together and can function effectively in helping protect your home from weather events such as heavy rain, strong winds, hail, snow and wildfires. The price point differs between asphalt shingles and metal but the difference in your roof’s life expectancy will make up for the initial investment. Metal roofs typically last 2 to 4 times longer than asphalt shingle roofs but are a more expensive option.
This will vary depending on the homeowner’s situation. If the home has suffered significant storm damage, we usually recommend a roof replacement. Patching a roof or only performing a partial roof replacement can act as a bandaid rather than a cure to the problem in some situations. During the roof replacement process, the old roof is removed all the way down to the roof’s decking which allows for the roof’s underlying structure to be inspected. If pieces of the wood decking are rotting or damaged, they will be replaced before the new roof installation begins. This is another reason why roof replacements may be the best option for some homeowners. Knowing the age of the roof can also help you and your roofing contractor determine whether a repair will solve the issue or whether a brand new roof is necessary.
Every roof repair is different. A roof repair could last months or even years depending on its location on your roof, the stability and quality of the materials used as well as the materials surrounding the repaired area, the amount of storms that occur after the repair is performed, whether or not the roof suffers additional damage near your previous repaired area, etc. There are many possibilities as to what could cause a repair to last a while or need repairing again in the future. The important part is that a problem area is addressed immediately if it is showing signs of leaking or water damage, even if it has been repaired before.
It is hard to see roof damage from the ground and as a homeowner, climbing a ladder onto your roof is probably the last thing you would prefer to do in your spare time. This is why it is important to periodically have your roof looked over by professional roofing contractors like us who are licensed and insured to get the job done for you. It is especially important to do this after a big storm as storm damage can commonly occur on roofs as your roof is your home’s first line of defense against inclement weather and is usually the first component of your home affected by damaging winds and hail. Your roofing specialist will inspect your roof, help you determine the best course of action and inform you whether or not you need a new roof replacement. They can also help you through the insurance claim process if that is the route you choose to take.
Please take CAUTION if a roofer asks for you, the homeowner, to pull the permit. This often means that they are not properly licensed or insured and cannot pull it themselves. While a homeowner can sometimes pull a permit, they can often be left on the hook if things are not done right. A reputable roofing contractor will take the responsibility of obtaining the permit necessary to perform your roof replacement. This is because in order to obtain a permit for a roofing project, a roofing contractor must submit their licensing information to the permitting agency before they can retrieve the permit. This process can act as a failsafe but does not guarantee that the roofing contractor working on your project is licensed properly to do the job. This is why it is important to request to view your roofing contractor’s licensing.
Before selling your house, you will likely have a home inspector come inspect your property. Home inspectors commonly recommend that a roofing professional inspect the roof and ask that the roofing company provide a quote to fix any issues found. Sometimes the roof’s issues require roof replacements to fix. If you have not put your home on the market yet and choose to replace your roof, a new roof can add value to your home and act as a great selling point in the future. Also, if you are a buyer we recommend that you hire a professional roofing company to do an in depth inspection of the roof as we specialize in roofing and Alabama is a buyer beware state.
Depending on the cause of the roof leak, your insurance company may cover the cost of fixing the underlying issue. Advanced Roofing & Construction, LLC works with all insurance companies and can assist you by communicating important information related to your claim with your insurance company throughout the insurance claim process. We are very experienced in this area and will do the heavy lifting for you.
It is crucial to address a leaking roof as it is likely accompanied by water damage. If neglected, mold can grow within the water damaged area which can bring about health concerns. If the water damaged location is on or around weight bearing walls, addressing damaged areas is very important to maintain the integrity and overall safety of your home. Also, if a leak is neglected and leads to further damage that may not have occurred if the leak was addressed, your insurance company could consider the additional damage a result of neglect which can cause you to have to pay out of pocket to fix the damages rather than it being covered. Giving us a call to schedule an appointment for us to come out and assess the damage is the first step toward addressing the issue at hand.
