Frequently Asked Questions
We can repair any roof – from securing loose shingles or flashing, replacing missing or damaged shingles, to rebedding ridge caps, to replacing water-damaged roof decks. Rumsey Construction and Restoration has a team of experienced roofing contractors who can repair any roof damage you may be experiencing.
The pricing for new roofs depends primarily on the square footage of the roof surface, the type of material you choose (asphalt, metal, cedar shakes, tile, etc), and the complexity of your roof (dormers, steep angles, etc.) Because we’ve been installing new roofs in the Central North Carolina area for years, we have the experience and resources to help you decide on a quality roof solution that will suit your budget.
Yes! Our experienced, licensed roofers will inspect your roof up close to assess the scope of any obvious damage and also map out the probable unseen damage just below the surface. With that knowledge at hand, we will let you know if roof repair is the most affordable option or if you’re better off with a full roof replacement.
Each shingle brand provides a different guideline for how long they expect their shingles to last. A properly installed roof will generally last up to 15 years with regular maintenance and inspection, especially after severe weather events.
Damaged roofs cause roof leaks, which creates a dangerous water and moisture problem in the house below. Whether the roof damage was caused by hail or fallen trees to simply granule loss due to aging roof shingles, prompt attention and repair will avoid further, more costly damage down the road.
While there could be some initial cost-saving in laying new shingles over an old, aged roof, we generally don’t recommend re-roofing. Old shingles also mean an old roof deck. By tearing off the old shingles, our licensed roofing contractor will then be able to spot any areas of instability or damage to the roof deck that may have been hidden by the shingles. We can replace any sections where there may be wood rot. Roof installation techniques and materials have also changed over the last couple of decades, and your old roof may not be up to code. “Re-roof” jobs may also not carry the same warranties as a full replacement.
When you decide it’s time to consider a new roof, consider first your budget and your goals. Metal roofs tend to last longer than asphalt shingles, but they cost more upfront and may not “fit in” with the neighborhood. Asphalt shingles are an affordable option, but even in that arena, there are choices that will determine the overall aesthetic and potential lifespan of the roof. Consulting a roofing contractor to help you make these choices is best. They’ll have the experience to help guide you towards the best result.
