Roofing FAQs to Consider
How do I know I need a new roof?
Suspecting your building has roof damage can be unnerving and confusing, especially if you cannot see the potential damage. Differentiating between needing an inspection, a repair, or a total replacement can be tricky, but Interstate Roofing is here to help. The first rule of thumb is to call Interstate Roofing for an inspection- Interstate Roofing is always here to help answer any questions, and offer free repair estimates. Yet, there are a few things to look for that may help tell you that you are in need of a roof repair:
Keep an eye out for wet spots on your ceiling, in your attic or crawl spaces, or on your floors as these are telltale signs of a leak
Shingles are curling, buckling, broken, badly aging, or even missing
You notice signs of root rot- the spongy feeling when you walk the roof
There is water backup in your eaves
Your flashing is damaged or compromised
Will a new roof lower my energy bills?
Yes! A roof replacement might help you save money on your energy bills if your roof is old and inefficient. While it is recommended that attic spaces remain a temperature closer to the outside air during the winter, excessive heat in the summertime indicates a lack of ventilation, which can be fixed with a new roof. This excessive heat can cause your HVAC system to work overtime, costing you money. With new ventilation and sound materials that prevent extra drafts and water leaks, a new roof cuts energy bills.
Is new roofing a good investment?
Quality roofing is one of the best ROI remodeling projects you can do for your business. This comes from the fact that a new roof:
Increases curb appeal
Offers potential energy savings that come with a professional roof installation
Ice dam prevention in the winter
What is the lifespan of a new roof?
Each roofing style and technique allows a different lifespan, but Interstate Roofing offers a variety of styles to help find the best fit for your building. The longest-lasting style, Standing Seam Roofing, has a potential lifespan of up to 40-70 years! While the average lifespan of other models is 20-40 years, Interstate Roofing encourages you to call to learn about what styles would best suit the needs of your building.
