FAQs about Roof Replacement

roof replacement woodbury eastern roofing and sidingWhen you need a new roof, it can be pretty stressful, especially if you’ve never had a new roof put on your home before. We specialize in roof replacement in Woodbury and the surrounding areas, so we wanted to take the time to answer some questions about the process and what you can expect when you hire us for roof replacement services.

Q: How do I know if I need a roof replacement?

A: There are a few good signs that you should call us to schedule a roof replacement: missing, curling or cracked shingles; roofing materials (shingles, sheathing, etc.) are decaying; the interior walls and/or ceilings of your home have stains on them; soffit and fascia is rotting; your chimney is leaking; roof is leaking; roof just doesn’t look good or nice anymore and excessive granules accumulating in your downspouts and gutters.

Q: Can I replace my roof by myself? Is it a good do it yourself project?

A: Unless you are a professional roofing contractor, the answer to this question is no. A roof replacement is not a good do it yourself job. It requires special knowledge, training and materials in order to do the job right the first time. You definitely should call a licensed and certified roof replacement company like Eastern Roofing & Siding to do the work for you.

Q: How long do new roofs last?

A: The answer to this question has a few variables: the type of roof, the manufacturer, your local climate and environment etc. However, most roofs last about 20 years or longer.

Q: How much does a new roof cost?

A: Again, this depends on a few different factors, like the type of materials we use. But we can give you a free estimate when you call us to learn more about our roof replacement services so you can budget accordingly.

Q: How long does a roof replacement project take?

A: Depending on the scope of your project, you can anticipate that the work will take anywhere from one to three days to complete. However, this time frame might change depending on how many structural repairs are needed or if your roof requires some type of specialty materials. Again, this is something we can discuss with you at length so you know how long it’ll take for us to replace your specific roof.
