1. How long will it take to replace my roof?
A good company can replace your home’s roof in 1-2 days depending on size and scope. This includes removing the old roof shingles and underlayment, then replacing both as well as an ice and water shield, ridge up, starting shingles, vents, followed by a thorough clean-up.
2. What are some signs that my roof has a problem?

At first glance, you can see common roofing issues such as:
- Missing shingles
- Water stains inside the home
- Shiny fiberglass mat exposed
- Exposed roof components that look out of place
3. My roof is leaking, what do I do?
In the case of a roofing leak, you have some options. Sometimes people ask if they need a new roof because of a leak, and it depends. Factors such as the age of your current roof, the existing warranty, and the scope of your roof leak will determine your next steps. In either case, the first step is always to get the issue inspected by a roofing company even before contacting insurance.
