Roofing, Siding, and Window Frequently Asked Questions:

Roofing Questions

How much does a roof cost?

There are many factors to pricing a roof. 

  • Height (how tall the roof is)
  • How many layers are on it
  •  Pitch (angle) of the roof
  • Ice and water barrier (some roofs require more than others)

What is the difference between repair and total replacement?

  • A repair means we can replace sections of the roof that have been leaking or causing damage.
  • Replacement is tearing everything off and starting over because the shingles are in such bad shape.

Siding Questions

How Can I tell if my siding is bad?

Appearance of fungus, obvious separation of seams, caulking failure, swelling, delaminating, boards that no longer lay flat against your house, paint failure, moisture on the inside of your house, all could be signs of siding failure.

Why should I re-side?

New siding will rejuvenate an older home or business, give it a completely new look, and significantly reduce cost for home upkeep and maintenance. It will protect the home from elements and eliminate the need for costly, frequent repainting.

What is the best type of siding?

Your home style, neighborhood, desired effect, and your budget determine the best solution for you.

How long does it take to side my home?

It normally takes one to two weeks to side your home. A lot of details have to be done to give your house a pleasing look.

How much does it cost for siding?

Because we offer siding at a number of price points to fit any need and any budget, and because every home and siding job is unique, there is no way to answer this question. The best thing to do is invite a sales representative into your home so he can measure it accurately and discuss other needs you may have.

What a wonderful company to have roof my house. Amber and Jennifer were very helpful working around my schedule to book an appointment. Chuck was very informative with the entire process. His roofing crew was fast and cleaned up everything when they were done. Highly recommend them to people looking for a new roof.
