roofing FAQ for Rhode Island residents

How Can I Tell If It's Time For A New Roof?

Unless you're an expert, it can be unclear when it's time for a roof replacement. Some signs and indicators point to the requirement of new roof installation, including:

  • A roof that's over 20 years old
  • A roof with visible damages
  • Water leaks
  • Organic material growing on surfaces
  • Missing or damaged shingles
  • Staining or peeling of interior or exterior paint

Even with these details, you may not be able to determine if it's time for a roof replacement on your own. Call our experts to schedule your roof inspection to be sure.

Does A Water Leak Mean I Need A Roof Replacement?

Just because your roof is leaking water, it doesn't necessarily mean that you have to replace the entire thing. If your roof is relatively new, there may be areas that can be quickly repaired to reinforce any weak spots. Flashings may have come loose, or a small section of the system could have suffered damages from weather or other elements that can easily be fixed at a much lower cost to you.

However, when the entire system fails, you can't avoid a roof replacement. Our GAF Master Elite contractors will tell you what condition your roof is in and offer you honest solutions.

How Do I Know What Roofing Company To Call?

There are countless roofing companies in Rhode Island and throughout the country. Trying to decide who to hire can be challenging, but you can make the process easier by knowing what to look for. Who you want is a company that:

  • Is locally owned and operated
  • Has several years of experience
  • Is fully licensed and certified
  • Offers WARRANTIES on products AND labor
  • Promises a satisfaction GUARANTEE
