  • What are the signs my roof has problems? There are several signs that your roof may have problems. Some of these signs include:

Curling or buckling shingles: This is a sign that your shingles are aging and becoming less effective at protecting your roof. 3. Missing or damaged shingles: This can be caused by weather damage or poor installation. 4. Water stains on your ceiling or walls: This is a sign of water damage and may indicate that your roof is leaking. 5. Sagging roof deck: This can be caused by excess moisture and is a sign of a serious problem. 6.

  • What are the different types of asphalt shingles?
    Asphalt shingles come in a variety of types, including three-tab shingles, architectural shingles, and luxury shingles. Three-tab shingles are the most basic and economical option, while architectural shingles have a dimensional design and offer more durability and wind resistance. Luxury shingles are the highest quality and typically have a longer lifespan and higher level of impact resistance.
  • What are some reasons to replace my gutters? There are several reasons to replace your gutters, such as:
    1. Clogs: If your gutters are clogged with debris, leaves, and dirt, water can overflow and damage your home's siding, foundation, and landscaping. 2. Leaks: If your gutters are leaking, it's a clear indication that they're not working correctly. Leaks can cause water to seep into your home, leading to water damage and mold growth. 3. Rust: If your gutters are rusted, it's a sign that they're old and need to be replaced. Rust can weaken the structural integrity of your gutters, leading to leaks and water damage. 4. Sagging: If your gutters are sagging or pulling away from your home, it's a sign that they're not functioning properly. Sagging gutters can cause water to overflow and damage your home's foundation and landscaping. 5. Dents or cracks: If your gutters have dents or cracks, it's a sign that they're damaged and need to be replaced. Damaged gutters can't effectively divert water away from your home, leading to water damage and mold growth.
  • How much does a new roof cost?
    The cost of a new roof can vary depending on several factors, such as the size and pitch of your roof, the type of materials used, as well as the complexity of the job. On average, a new roof installation can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $25,000 or more. However, it's always best to get a personalized estimate from a professional roofing company like Everlast Roofing, who can provide you with a detailed quote based on your specific needs and budget. 608-205-8147
  • Do new roofs have warranties?
    Yes, new roofs come with warranties. The length and terms of the warranty can vary depending on the roofing materials used and the manufacturer. Typically, warranties range from 10 to 50 years, with some manufacturers offering lifetime warranties. It's important to read the warranty carefully to understand what is covered and what is not. In addition, some roofing contractors may offer their own warranty on the installation workmanship. It's always a good idea to ask your contractor about the warranty before starting any roofing project.
