How do I know if I need a roof replacement?

You may be wondering if you need a new roof, and how you're supposed to tell if it's the right time. There are a few different things that you can look at. First of all, if there is any visible damage to the roof or if you see any sort of water damage coming into your house, that's a red flag. Additionally, you need to know what age your roof is and if it was correctly installed.

Some of these things may be difficult to figure out on your own. If you don't know whether or not it's time for your roof to be replaced, you can call on The Boston Roofers Boston to come out and do an inspection and give you a quote if you do in fact need a new roof. Rest assured we only hire honest roofing contractors in Boston, so we won't ever make you pay for something you don't need.

What if I'm just missing a few shingles?

You may notice that a few shingles are missing, so that doesn't necessarily require an entire roof replacement, or does it? That depends on a few different things as well. If your roof is new, you may be able to get by with just replacing those shingles, but you might want to be worried about the quality of work you had done if there are already missing shingles.

Usually, when one goes, the rest are soon to follow. If your roof is old, it's most likely time to get replaced if shingles are missing. Either way, if you do have missing shingles, you need to get them replaced as soon as possible at a minimum to prevent water damage and long-term problems with your property's structure.

What does a home roof replacement cost?

When it comes to having a residential roofing company come in and replace or do a new roof installation, the first question on everybody's mind is often the cost. It's a significant investment to have this home improvement project completed, and the price can vary quite a bit from company to company.

However, things are going to vary depending on the shingles that you select. With the TimberlineĀ® High DefinitionĀ® Shingles that we use, you have the option of all different sizes and colors in a variety of prices. The best thing to do is get in touch with ours, or any, roofing company in Boston and ask for a free price estimate.

Why are my roofing estimates so different?

If you are doing the roof replacement at your home the way you're supposed to, you should be getting estimates from several different places. We suggest you get at least three estimates to get a better understanding of what your options are. However, if one of your estimates seems extremely low or too good to be true, it probably is. Make sure that you are asking about any warranties or guarantees that come with replacing roof shingles along with their years of experience, any licensing and insurance, and the certifications that they have. Remember, you get what you pay for in most cases.

Am I going to need new gutters and downspouts?

Our qualified roofing contractors are conscientious to work around your existing gutters and downspouts to prevent any damage from occurring. Most often we can do the complete roof installation without ever bothering with those parts of your roofing system, especially if they are in good shape. However, if these parts of your home are outdated or damaged, you should consider having them replaced as well. Our qualified roofing professionals can give you an honest answer on whether or not it's something that you should include in your home improvement project.

Will I have to clean my yard after a roof installation?

After seeing a roof replacement project done, you probably think that it's a pretty messy job. You don't have time to clean all that up. And what about your landscaping? Is it going to be damaged with shingles and equipment going every which way? Those are things that you will never have to worry about. Our roofing contractors are respectable and professional taking care of your personal property. Everything will be adequately covered and protected while we're working. Before we wrap up and leave at the end of the job, we will make sure that there isn't one single piece of debris left behind for you to worry about.

My roof was damaged during a storm. Will my homeowner's insurance cover it?

Your homeowner's insurance may cover some or all of your new roof installation, depending on what the insurance adjuster comes up with as far as how the damage occurred. If you don't like the answer that they gave you when they came and looked, we can offer you a second opinion. If you're worried about the cost of your new roof, ask our helpful employees about our 100% hassle-free financing options available.

What are some of the other benefits of a new roof replacement?

You already know that you need a roof to protect your home, your belongings, and your family. Without a quality roof system in place, everything is vulnerable to the outside environment. When you get a new roof replacement, there are several of other benefits you receive that you may not think of including a 5% increase in the value of your home, lower utility bills, and a brand new beautiful appearance you'll be proud of.


Client reviews from trusted sources
Great experience from start to finish. Very knowledgeable and courteous staff. They had by far the best quality and warranty, which is why I went with them. They also offer amazing financing plans which allowed me to complete the entire project at once as I had hoped. Highly recommended.
