Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you’re a homeowner or business owner, you want to feel informed about your roof.  Read through our expert answers to your top-asked roofing questions. 

How Long Should My Roof Last? 

The average roof lifespan is 30 years.  The tile on your roof may last for up to 100 years, with the underlayment needing replacement every 20-30 years. Standard asphalt shingle roofs usually last 30 about years, although the heavier shingles can last up to 50 years. A foam roof is intended to be a permanent roof, provided that it is properly maintained and kept coated to protect the foam from the sun.  Our team can help you decide which roofing material is best for your space. 

Follow routine maintenance tips to care for your roof and expand its longevity. 

Does My Insurance Cover Roof Repair or Replacement? 

This answer depends on your insurance policy.  Generally speaking, most insurance policies will cover roof repair or replacement caused by circumstances beyond your control, including weather events.  Usually, insurance won’t cover issues related to neglect or general deterioration.

Call your insurance company to double-check what is and isn’t covered before beginning any roofing project.

What Are the Signs of a Failing Roof?

Common signs of roof failure include:

  • Sagging
  • Cracked, missing, or broken shingles or tiles
  • Interior water damage
  • Missing or damaged flashing
  • Discolored areas on the roof

If you notice any of these symptoms, schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

What is Staining My Roof?

There are a couple of things that could be staining your roof:

  • Mold 
  • Mildew
  • Dirt
  • Rust 
  • Fungus 

A professional roofing team can inspect your roof, uncover underlying issues, and address them promptly.  The faster you take care of these issues, the better.

How Long Does a Roof Inspection Take?

Roofing inspections last 20 minutes to a few hours, depending on how much there is to inspect and any issues we uncover during the process. 

How Long Will My Roof Installation Take?

Roof installation depends on multiple factors.  Generally speaking, our process lasts 3-5 days.  Our professional team works to limit disruptions to your home and workplace during that time.

How Do I Find a Trustworthy Roofing Company? 

Look for a roofing company that’s properly licensed and insured.  Learn how long they’ve been in business.  In Arizona, roofing companies tend to come and go.  Most roofing companies have been in business for fewer than five years—just long enough to start getting in trouble financially and have customer service issues crop up.  Longevity generally relates to the quality of workmanship.  Read reviews to see how clients respond to their work.
