Hiring a roofing contractor to replace the roof on your home can be a stressful and daunting task. Your roof is one of the most significant investments to the exterior of your home, protecting your family and belongings from the elements. In the state of Maryland, one of the biggest things to consider before hiring any roofer is whether they are licensed. You’ll want to check to make sure they have general liability and workers comp insurance as this protects you if there is ever an injury on your property. You’ll want to ask them about their experience with your type of roof pitch and material to be installed. With the power of the internet, you should not only ask them for references but Google their brand to see what type of reputation and reviews they have online. Ask them how long it takes to complete the install, and how backed up their schedule is. Lastly, price should also be a major consideration. However, like with anything, you get what you pay for. A quality contractor should come in somewhere in the middle, as this reflects that they aren’t cutting corners being the cheapest, while also not price gouging with the highest price. A contractor that offers pricing that seems too good to be true … it very likely is.

The Process of Roof Repair

For all roofing repair projects Baltimore, our experts will follow the following steps:
Damage might have occurred on the roof after a heavy storm, downpour or due to old age. But in order for us to ascertain the extent of damage and decide whether the roof needs repair or replacement, we have to first perform a thorough inspection on the entire roofing system.
Our experts will look for signs of water damage on the roof’s attic or damaged shingles and nails on its exterior. They’ll also check the structure of the roof for any rot that might need to be either repaired or replaced. Detection of leaks from damaged shingles, loose nails or damaged flashing and venting may also be done at this stage.
2. Performing the Repairs
Once the problem has been established with certainty, our experts will immediately swing into action to make the necessary repairs. In cases of emergency call-outs, we might just tarp the roof till the storm or heavy rains are over before we embark on serious repairs.
A typical repair job may involve removing or scraping off the damaged parts of the roof, filling in the leaking areas with an appropriate sealant and/or replacing overly damaged shingles. Straightening the gutters and unblocking the downspouts may also be part of the roofing system repairs.
3. Doing Post-Repair Inspection
After all the repairs are done, the last our roofers will perform an inspection to ensure that the entire repair works were done to the required standards. At this stage, we might even run water through the roof’s drainage system to test its functionality, if need be.
Once we are done with the inspection and are convinced everything is as it should be, we’ll leave you to enjoy your new fixed roof.

Below we’ve put together some answers to the most frequently asked questions
The answer to this is, “it depends”. There are many variables, and everyone’s situation is different. Not every roof needs to be replaced, but not every roof is a candidate for roof repairs. One of the most important factors is the age of your roof. The older your roof is, the more brittle it becomes, which means that repairing your roof may not be possible. Beyond just your roof’s age, you should also consider if your roof has missing shingles, if there are granules in your gutters, the condition of your flashing, if your roof is currently leaking and whether or not algae is blooming on your roof.
The only way to confidently answer this question is with a thorough storm damage roof inspection. Most modern roofs are designed to withstand the elements. However, even the strongest of roofs can begin to fail when exposed to prolonged hail, wind and snow storms. In many instances, your homeowner’s insurance can cover storm damage to your roof and exterior. To determine whether you have storm damage, a roofing contractor should examine your roof for broken and missing shingles, potential leak spots, and any hail indents or bruised shingles.
This is an extremely frequently asked question. There are many factors to consider when choosing between a shingle or metal roof. The most obvious is budget and cost. A shingle roof is one of the most popular roofing materials in the United States because of its cost. A shingle roof tends to be the short-term cost effective option, however a metal roof can be a more cost-effective long-term option. You may need to have a shingle roof replaced 2 or 3 times during the lifespan of a metal roof. Metal offers not only better durability, but longevity as well compared to asphalt shingles. There are also other considerations, such as does your HOA allow for metal, or strictly shingles.
This answer also depends on several variables, including the slope and size of your roof, as well as the type of material being installed. In most cases, an asphalt shingle roof can be replaced in as little as one day!
The lifecycle of a roof depends on the type of roof that you are installing, as well as additional factors like the quality of materials being used, and the craftsmanship of the contractor. Even the highest grade roofs can fail quickly if the contractor does not install the roof to manufacturer specifications. On average, a shingle roof will last about 15 to 25 years. A metal roof can last about 30 to 50 years. A tile roof can last from 50 to over 100 years. A cedar shake will generally last about 20-35 years. A slate roof tends to last the longest of any roofing material, from 50-100+ years!
