Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT TYPE OF ROOFING MATERIAL IS BEST FOR MY HOME?
The best roofing material for your home will mostly depend on the climate in your area. For example, metal roofs are great for homes that experience harsh winters, as they’ll allow snow to slide right off the top, keeping buildup to a minimum. Our team can help pick the best roof based on your specific needs and preferences.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED A NEW ROOF?
There are several signs that you may need a new roof, including missing shingles, rusted metal roofing, leaks, and visible water damage. If the integrity of your roof is compromised and allowing water or cold air into your home, prioritize getting a new roof as soon as possible. Have your roof inspected regularly by a professional roofer to ensure it is in good condition.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO INSTALL A NEW ROOF?
On average, a roof installation will take J-Tech Construction anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Our roofing contractors may take more time depending on the size of your home and the shape of your roof. Different types of roofs (metal or asphalt shingles) will also affect our estimate.
How long does a roof last?
The lifespan of a roof can vary depending on the type of roofing material, the quality of the installation, local climate conditions, and frequency of maintenance. Asphalt shingles and metal shingles are two examples of highly popular roof shingle designs that are known to last for decades, even more so for metal shingles.
What is a pitched roof?
A pitched roof is a roof design that features one or more inclined surfaces on the top. The main benefit of a pitched roof is that it allows rainwater, snow, and other debris to easily slide off, preventing pooling and potential leaks.
Does homeowners insurance cover roof leaks?
Whether homeowners insurance covers roof leaks often depends on the cause of the leak. Generally, homeowners insurance provides coverage for sudden damage to your home caused by storms, hail, wind, or falling debris (like trees and branches). Homeowners insurance typically does not cover roof leaks resulting from gradual deterioration over years and years.
What does it mean if I have metal roof rust?
A rusted metal roof is a common sign of age and deterioration. Most metal roofs will come with a layer of rust-resistant coating, and can be reapplied to ensure the longevity of your metal roof. If you notice signs of a rusted metal roof, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll need a replacement roof. Simply reach out to J-Tech’s roofing professionals and ask about metal roof repair.
Can you paint roof shingles?
Yes, you can paint over your shingles. Most types of asphalt shingles are suitable for painting, while metal shingles will depend on the material. For the best results, you should try to paint your shingles with an acrylic paint. Before applying any paint, be sure to clean the roof thoroughly and check for structural damage to ensure the longevity of the paint job. Check with the roofing professionals at J-Tech to confirm if your shingles can be painted.
