What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired American Roofing after experiencing some hail damage to the roof of our home. The overall process was great. American Roofing was quick at getting an estimator to give us a price, helped us navigate our home owners insurance process, and were right on time starting the project. We did run into a few bumps throughout the process and American Roofing really stepped up to make sure it was resolved timely and to our satisfaction. They answered calls on weekends and after hours and put getting these fixed at the top of their list. I have been extremely happy hiring American Roofing and would recommend them to everyone. They are a longstanding company and Get Gephart recommended for a reason. Hire these guys.

I highly recommend this company to all my friends and family!

FAQs about Residential Roof Replacement

Generally speaking, asphalt roofs will need to be replaced every 15-30 years, often sooner in warm, humid climates. Severe winters and heavy rainfall can also shorten the material’s lifespan, so be sure to review your roof’s condition regularly.

Some roof damage can be mended with a repair rather than a full roof replacement. If your roof is relatively young, repairing a few curling shingles and some of the flashing that has been compromised might be all you need. If you’re not planning on staying in the same house for a lengthy period of time, then a repair might be the better bet both time and money-wise. Depending on how soon you plan on selling it, it may not make sense to invest in a full-on replacement if you’re not going to be sticking around long enough to get your money’s worth.

On the other hand, if severe damage has occurred, or you have major flooding inside your home due to an old and malfunctioning roof, a replacement is likely the better choice. A roof can only be repaired so many times until repairs will no longer get the job done. 

Many home insurance policies will give you a discount on your rate if you get your roof replaced. A new roof is seen as less of a risk in the eyes of insurance claims compared to the risk associated with older roofs. While the upfront cost of a new roof can be a lot, know that you’ll save on your monthly premiums by investing in your property.

Roof replacement means all the roofing material down to the deck is torn off and replaced with new materials. That includes the shingles, underlayment, and flashings.

Roof replacement differs from a shingle recover. When shingle recover is done, a new layer of shingles is laid on top of the current roofing. This can make sense in some cases, but a roof replacement is generally the more thorough and longer lasting option for your home.

Plus, American Roofing offers a 5-year warranty on new roof installations. You know you’re getting a roof that will keep your family and home sheltered for years to come.

It can depend on where you live and the climate, but you can have your roof replaced at any time of year. The warmer and drier months of the year are more conducive to roof replacement, but the off season months can also offer savings on materials. It is best to plan around precipitation and other weather interfering with working outdoors, especially snow and ice.

A permit may be necessary for residential roof replacement, however not all cities require a permit for basic roof replacement. American Roofing takes care of the permitting process, so you can rest assured that all the details are covered, and any necessary permits will be pulled and any inspections will be completed as required.

It’s always important to make sure you hire a contractor who knows all the regulations for your city and neighborhood, in addition to knowing how to do the job. With American Roofing, you get complete customer service on top of industry-leading expertise.
