Our goal is to install a roof to protect your home and boost curb appeal for years to come. We also understand you might have questions. While we’re always willing to answer them over the phone, we’ve compiled some of our frequently asked questions below.

Q. How Can I Tell My Roof Needs to Be Replaced?

Unfortunately, it is not always apparent to the untrained eye whether it is time to replace your roof. For instance, we can quickly resolve some problems with roof repairs and forego a replacement altogether. In other cases, we can perform a partial, not full replacement. However, some apparent signs indicate a roof desperately in need of total replacement. The most common is also the most obvious. Any leak coming from the ceiling and into your home suggests there is a problem. But other issues aren’t always visible or apparent to homeowners. Huntingdon O’Neill Roofing Company offers roof inspections. This service is the best way to catch problems. Not only can a well-timed roof inspection let homeowners know when it’s time to replace the roof, but they also prevent replacements by finding issues in time to perform repairs. There are some things you can keep an eye out for:

  • Bucking and curling shingles
  • Algae growth
  • Missing granules
  • Absent shingles
  • Mold in your attic

Q. How Much Does Roof Replacement Cost?

Roof replacement costs vary depending on several factors, such as the size of the roof, material types, whether it is a sloped or flat roof and more. What Huntingdon O’Neill Roofing Company can promise is a transparent and upfront pricing policy. We’re honest with you about the cost and deliver high-quality work that makes it an investment well worth making.

Q. Is it Dangerous to Ignore Roof-Related Problems?

It can be. For instance, mold and mildew cause respiratory issues, which can be serious for some people. Also, there is always the possibility of structural damage and even collapse. Some roofing hazards also pose a fire risk. Even if your roofing issues aren’t dangerous, you shouldn’t ignore any signs of roof damage. The most common byproduct of a leaky roof is water damage, which causes cosmetic damage to your home. It lowers property value and adds daily stress to your life. It’s much better to call the Memphis, TN roofing contractors at Huntingdon O’Neill Roofing Company and get started with a roof replacement.

Q. My Roof is Bad. What are my options?

The answer to this question varies on the situation, but it can go a few ways. In some cases, you can opt for a complete replacement, which involves tearing off the existing roof system. Or, you can choose a less extensive alternative: Adding the new roof on top of the existing roof. The second option might not be possible. For instance, if the home already has two roofs as a result of re-roofing, then the house might not be able to handle the added weight. We’ll need to consider building codes. Fortunately, we’re up to speed on them.

Q. Can I Perform Roof Replacement Myself?

We strongly advise you not to perform any roofing work yourself. Some of the steps involved can be dangerous to complete – including navigating the roof itself – and others require extensive knowledge to perform. Your roof is supposed to last, but in the hands of inexperienced workers, the roof may not have the staying power you desire. We use qualified and experienced workers to quickly replace your roof and to do so safely.

Q. How Long Does a Roofing System Last?

For Memphis, TN customers, it depends on the chosen roofing materials. Metal roofing, roof shingles, flat roofing, tile roofing, architectural shingles, and other materials all have different expiration dates. However, on average, you can expect most roofing systems to last around 20 years. That’s more than long enough for most homeowners.
