Frequently Asked Questions
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.
The longevity of your roof will depend on multiple factors. These include the area where your roof is located, the type of roof material used, how well you maintain your roof and whether or not you have proper attic ventilation. Different parts of the country have different weather conditions. A roof in Huntsville, AL may be exposed to different weather than roofs elsewhere. In Huntsville, we are in a high storm area where hail and wind are the typical culprits of the damage caused to roofs. If weather conditions were not a factor in the lifespan of one’s roof, an architectural roof typically lasts 15-25 years whereas a metal roof can last upwards of 50-70+ years. Roof maintenance is also important to keep in mind as a homeowner. Different vents and pipes penetrate a roof and those need to be resealed every so often. Getting a roof tune-up is one way to make sure that every roof penetration is properly checked and sealed. Sometimes they may need to be replaced to prevent future leaks. Attic ventilation is vital to whether a roof ages gracefully or prematurely. At Advanced, we make sure your attic is properly ventilated to avoid high heat in your attic resulting in blistering of your shingles. Air intake and outtake must be balanced so that air can flow efficiently up through your soffit vents and out through your ridge vents or mechanical vents. We take ventilation into consideration when recommending what your roof needs during a roof replacement. Different roofs require different types of vents and we are here to help you make sure your attic is ventilated properly so your roof lasts longer. Overall, your roof’s longevity will depend on how well each of these factors are taken into account.
