Frequently Asked Questions

About Roof Repair and Roof Replacement in Lawton & Geronimo, OK

Question: How will I know when my roof needs to be replaced?

Answer: Potential signs that your roof may need to be replaced: Shingle edges are curled or shingle tabs are cupped. Your roof is at least 20 years old; while many shingles today are produced for durability, many factors can accelerate the aging of shingles. You may also have hail damage that can't be seen from the ground.

Question: Do I need a roof system?

Answer: All asphalt shingles carry some kind of warranty, which is usually limited to just the shingles. System warranties, however, cover the entire roofing system, including the key components that work together to protect your home and deliver lasting performance. If that roofing system ever fails, then the manufacturer covers the cost of the roof, accessories and labor. Non-system warranties cover only the shingles, leaving the homeowner to pick up the substantial cost of the accessories and labor.

Question: How much will a new roof cost?

Answer: This is a good question but it's the equivalent of asking how much a vehicle costs. The variables involved are endless. Metal roofs, asphalt shingles, colors, styles, textures, designs, slats, and many other factors weigh into this calculation. Luckily, we offer free estimates for potential clients. With no obligation, we will visit your home and provide an estimate for your roof and desired materials.

Question: Is it always necessary to tear off the existing roof?

Answer: Not always. It is best to remove existing roofing material so inspection of roof deck can be done. These issues can be addressed then to prevent problems later.

Question: Why should I look for a professional roofing contractor?

Answer: After natural disasters or large storms, fly-by-night roofers come out of the woodwork. These roofers will show up at your door with a van and promise you the world. Don't fall for these tricks. It's always best to choose an established, local company to perform roofing work. This will ensure you know who to turn to if you encounter problems. Read online reviews, ask for recommendations, and do research before choosing a company. It's also a good idea to find a company with a strong warranty to guarantee the work. A solid, transferable warranty is the mark of a good company.

Question: How long will my roof project take to complete?

Answer: Most roofing projects can be completed in one to two days. Timelines vary by building size, roofing type, and the company performing the work.
