Frequently asked questions
In some cases it is possible to install new asphalt shingles on top of old asphalt shingles in Murfreesboro. This process can be quicker and thus cheaper but can also miss damage that may be hiding underneath the shingles leading to additional repair costs in the future. You can only do this with asphalt shingles and it can only be done one time. This means if you need to replace your roof again in the future you will have to pay to remove both layers of shingles.
If you contact more than one Murfreesboro roofing contractor, you are likely to get a variety of quotes which can be confusing.
When comparing different quotes from contractors it is important to consider the different materials and services the company is offering. For example some shingles are higher quality or offer different features than others, thus costing more. There are also different types of underlayment, with longer lasting materials costing more.
In addition to the materials, ask the contractors how they will handle trash removal and if that is included in your estimate. You can also ask if they are planning on tearing off the old shingles or installing the new shingles on top of the old. Ask how long they expect the job to take.
Another thing to consider is the warranty coming with the labor and materials. Better quality roofing systems tend to come with longer and more complete warranties.
Whenever you hire a contractor for any type of home improvement project, be sure to hire a company that is licensed and insured. Ask for referrals from people you know or research online reviews.
It is a smart idea to take a look at your roof once or twice a year to spot any areas where leaks may potentially start. Keep in mind if your roof is steep you will want to hire a professional to inspect your roof as they are equipped with the proper fall protection gear.
The first step to take when inspecting your roof is checking the the ceilings inside the top floor or attic of your home for leaks or water stains. If you can access your attic, check for wet or rotting wood.
From the ground outside your home you can look for any missing, cracked, creased, or curled shingles as well as worn shingles that are missing their granules. You should also be on the lookout for exposed nails. One of the most common causes of roof leaks in Murfreesboro is cracked and worn rubber boots around the pipes and vents coming out of your roof. Check for any gaps or loose flashing or places where the sealant may have deteriorated along the flashing.
Make sure your gutters and downspouts are properly attached to your home and are cleared of debris. Check for the fascia board for any rotting wood or other damaged areas. Also, check the soffit for any holes, cracks, or other damage that needs to be repaired.
In most cases it is not recommended for homeowners to replace their roof on their own. The main concern is safety. Professional roofing crews have safety gear such as harnesses to protect them from falls. Additionally professional roofing crews also have years of experience working on different slopes and types of roofs so they can move and work not only more safely, but also more efficiently. Lastly, there are many components to installing a sound roof. Professional roofing crews have years of experience working with they components so they can get your new roof installed quickly and correctly so your home isn’t exposed for the elements longer than necessary.
Humidity can cause Murfreesboro roofs to end up covered in algae and moss. If you notice your roof looks like it has blue, green, or black stains or streaks it is probably algae. Algae spores travel through the air so they can spread from one structure to the next easily. While algae mostly only affects the appearance of your roof, over time algae can cause additional wear on your shingles, so you will want to clean the algae off of your roof regularly.
If you notice some velvety green growth on your roof it is probably moss. Moss tends to grow on the north facing or tree covered sides of roofs. Moss can cause serious damage to your roof so it is important to clean if off as soon as you notice it.
Be sure to trim trees back to allow the sun to shine on your roof to prevent most moss and algae growth. Both moss and algae thrive on moisture, so allowing the sun to keep your roof dry is very important. Always make sure tree branches never touch your roof as this can cause additional damage to your roof.
It is important that you never power wash your asphalt shingles or scrub your roof too hard as you may unintentionally damage the shingles by scrubbing the granules off.
