Frequently Asked Questions
Costs vary greatly depending on the pitch of your roof, the type of shingles you have, what condition the roof is in, and how many layers of shingles you have. The best way to find out the cost is to have a free quote done.
Leaks can be tough to spot because water wants to find the path of least resistance and can travel for a while before finally showing up through your ceiling. You can try going into your attic or crawl space with a flashlight the next time it rains and try to trace it, but your most accurate answer will come from having a professional come out to find it and give you a quote.
If the wood beneath your shingles shows signs of water damage, it will need to be replaced as well.
The type of roof that you get should complement the rest of the style and features of your home. You should also take into consideration the material, how long it lasts, and the costs to make this personal decision.
Most new roof systems are designed to provide useful service for about 20 years. Some roof system types, such as composite, slate, clay tile and certain metal (e.g., copper) systems, can last longer. Actual roof system life span is determined by a number of factors, including local climatic and environmental conditions, proper building and roof system design, material quality and suitability, proper application and adequate roof maintenance. Roofing product manufacturers offer a variety of warranties on their products. Take a close look at those warranties to see what responsibilities and financial obligations manufacturers will assume if their products fail to reach their expected lives.
Full restoration consists of two major phases. The first, mitigation, consists of demolition, cleaning and drying out the structure and belongings. This phase usually takes no more than 3 – 4 days. The second phase, repairs, can range from a few days to a couple of weeks depending on the degree of damage and lead time of materials such as carpeting, cabinets, or other flooring materials. Your project manager will work closely with you and your insurance company to develop a full timeline for your mitigation and repairs so that your property is back to normal as quickly as possible.
Water flood damage certainly has the potential to cause mold growth. Because mold thrives in moist environments, any place that is wet (and especially humid) is a perfect place for mold to grow. If you ignore the moisture, mold can begin to grow within 24-48 hours. It’s very important to take immediate action when you experience house flood damage of any type!
We have hired a former firefighter that supervises all fire restoration job sites. We believe our strategy is the best way to restore a home or business from the devastating consequences of fire damage. Structural damage and air quality will be the first things we address when we begin. We will remove soot-damaged items and debris, and once it has been labeled as safe to enter, we will begin our water damage assessment and begin that restoration process. We will finish with deodorizing, deep cleaning, and removing stains from furniture, curtains, and more.
