My roof leaks. Do I need to have it totally replaced?
Leaking can result when some shingles or flashings have come loose or a section of the roof has been damaged. These damages can be repaired, but they must be quickly attended to by an expert in roofing in Shawnee and the surrounding areas like Safe Harbor Roofing.
How will I know when I need a new roof?
By performing a visual inspection you can tell if a roof is worn, peeling, cracked, old and most obviously leaking. If leaking is occurring but not yet noticeable, the appearance of stains on your interior walls is a clear indicator of sever roof damage. We suggest that you should have your roof inspected by a professional roofer every 3-5 years.
Can I install a new roof over the existing roof?
In many cases the answer is, Yes! There is always the possibility when installing a new roof over the existing roof, that the old roof may carry an uneven look into the new roof, but our staff knows the difference between a roof that needs to be removed and a roof that can stay in place while a new roof is installed over it.
What roof will work best for my home?
Every home is different, which is why the experienced design consultants at Safe Harbor Roofing work closely with each homeowner to choose the right type of roofing system for your home. We are GAF certified roofers and are deeply experienced in a wide range of their industry-leading roofing styles.
Why should I install siding? I like my paint job how it is.
Paint requires time out of your busy day to maintain. The average homeowner repaints his or her home every 4-5 years, while with siding the color will stay vibrant long past then.
Will siding really help me save on energy costs?
At Safe Harbor Roofing, we install top of the line Mastic and James Hardie Siding, which manufactured with energy efficiency in mind. If your home is not wrapped in thermally efficient siding, you could be paying far more than you should be on your monthly bills.
This seems like a long process, how long will siding take to install?
Siding is relatively easy to install and in most cases can be fit right over your existing exterior walls. Plus, our team of siding installation specialists team is factory-trained to be quick and efficient in their installations.
How easy is siding to maintain once it is installed?
Unlike paint, which requires constant maintenance, siding can be washed by a simple summer rain shower. If you do encounter soil buildup, the garden hose and a brush will do the trick.
