New Jersey’s Trusted Residential & Commercial Roofing Professionals
Every year your roof weathers the storm against whatever Mother Nature brings its way. In New Jersey, we certainly see our fair share of violent and inclement weather yearly! From hail storms, to gusting wind storms, to hurricanes and even blizzards and ice storms, your roof is on the front line weathering it all! Your roof is what protects your home from experiencing leaks and costly water damage!
As with anything in life, over time, your roof can begin to wear down from this consistent exposure to not only storm activity, but baking under the sun’s rays as well! As your roof begins to break down, you may experience leaks, notice granules in your gutters, or identify that your roof is missing shingles. While getting a new roof may not be at the top of your “want” list, it does not have to be a stressful experience. Roof Works takes pride in offering a hassle-free roofing experience for our customers.
Most Common Reasons Why New Jersey Home Owners Need New Roofs
For the reasons above, maintaining a durable roof over your home is critically important. When possible, you may be able to repair your roof to extend it’s useful life and extract several more years out of it. However, as your roof ages the end of its lifecycle, it may require a full roof replacement from a company like Roof Works. There are a few main reasons that most homeowners will require a roof replacement:
Age is one of the primary reasons that most New Jersey homeowners need to replace the roof overhead. Is the roof on your home still the original, builder roof that came with your home? Or, perhaps you bought your home and are not sure how old the roof is. Most architectural shingle roofs have a lifespan of about 15 – 20 years. A well constructed and installed architectural or dimensional shingle roof can last up to 25 years. However, 15 to 20 tends to be the average.
While an asphalt or composite roof may only last 15 – 20 years, a metal roof can last up to 50 years! A tile roof can last 50 to 100 years, and a slate roof can last over 100+ years! Depending on the type of roofing material that you have on your home, it can impact the lifecycle of your roof. Moreover, this is why certain materials are more expensive than shingles. While they are more expensive upfront, they pay for themselves many times over with their overall lifespan.
At Roof Works NJ, we can provide you a free roofing inspection to help you determine the condition of your roof, and how many more years you may be able to get from it!
Your roof is built to endure gusting wind storms, rain, and the baking sun’s UV rays. However, over time, even the toughest of roofs will begin to break down from prolonged exposure to violent weather. This is why aging roofs tend to be more prone and susceptible to wind damage because as they are nearing the end of their lifecycle, the asphalt has begun to deteriorate.
However, it is not only old shingle roofs that are susceptible to storm damage. If a hail storm sweeps into New Jersey, bringing about 2″ or 3″ hail stones, that can devastate even a brand new roof that was recently installed! While hail damage does not always bring about immediate leaks, overtime, it can cause catastrophic roof failure. When hail hits your roof, it dislodges the granules from asphalt, exposing your roof to the sun’s UV rays. This can cause the shingles to break down, and leads to leak spots!
After any major storm, it is always prudent to have a professional NJ roofing company, such as Roof Works, provide you with a free storm damage roofing inspection to assess the condition and health of your roof. We have many homeowner associations and commercial businesses that request us to inspect their roofs following powerful thunderstorms to periodically check on the condition of their roof.
Our storm damage roofing inspections are completely free. If you do have hail damage, you may qualify for a full roof replacement from your insurance carrier. Storm damage is recognized as an “act of god” by insurance carriers, and depending on the extent of your damage, could also qualify for siding replacement or even new gutters!
Increasing Curb Appeal
We often have homeowners and real estate agents reaching out to us before a home is listed on the market, or before closing. A new roof can increase the curb appeal and appraisal value of your home before selling – particularly with a brand new metal roof! If you would like to explore the idea of having a new, economical roof put on your home prior to selling your home, we would be happy to share with you different roofing systems that could meet your goals and increase the curb appeal of your home!
Improper Roof Installations
As they saying goes, “you get what you pay for”, is especially true when it comes to roofing. Not only can you find a significant difference in quality of roofing materials from different pricing tiers, but the same holds true for roofing contractors as well! Unfortunately, the roofing industry has many “fly-by-night” roofing contractors that lunge into a new market following a storm. It is extremely important to scrutinize any roofing company that you are contemplating hiring before contracting them to install your new roof.
A properly installed architectural shingle roof should last between 15-20 years without experiencing minor leaks or issues. However, the craftsmanship and workmanship of the roofing contractor is equally important. If the shingles are high-nailed or not properly adhered to the roof – or the contractor failed to replace rotten decking, all of these variables could lead to early roof failure and roofing leaks.
While price is an important consideration for any homeowner when having your roof replaced, it is important to factor how one roofing company can offer an estimate at markedly less than the competitors. This can be a sign of skimping on quality materials, labor, etc. A quality roofing company will be able to stand behind their work, and remain in business to honor their warranty!
