Common Roofing Questions

 In blog

More often than not, roofs are meant to last for a long time. The average life span can be between 10 to 30 years, but depending on the material, it can last for even longer. That means that you probably aren’t making repair or getting a new roof in Nashville, TN all that often.

Since you probably don’t have a lot of experience with roof repairs or replacement, you more than likely have questions. Below are some of the most commonly asked questions about roofing.

How long will the work take?

This is an incredibly important question, especially since people will be on top of your home making a lot of noise and a lot of mess. Depending on what type of repairs need to be done and what type of roof you have on your home, the answer can vary. On average, it will take 1 to 2 day for an average-size home to do a shingle reroof and 2 to 4 days if the home is larger.

Metal Roof Do you need to be home?

If you work outside of the home, you may wonder if you need to be home while the roofers do their job. The answer is no. The roofers won’t need access to your home, so you won’t have to worry about letting them inside. In fact, it’s probably better not to be home because it can get so loud.

If you have any questions, there should be a project manager that you can speak to. They will also be the liaison between the workers on your house and you, so if any issues arise, they will be taken care of.

How much will it cost?

The answer to this question will depend on what type of roof you are getting and how large your house is. There is a range of different roofing options, and they come with variable pricing. You have the final say at the end of the day which one you want to add to their home.

In addition, your insurance may also be covering the cost of the roof repairs or replacement. They may have a set price that you can’t go beyond, and if you do, then you’ll have to pay out of pocket. Talking to them before work starts can be beneficial.
