New Year, New Roof

New Year, New Roof– Let Tennessee Roofing and Construction install a new roof on your Chattanooga home.

Ah, the New Year. At the start of a fresh, new year, it’s always nice to set goals, make plans, and try to find ways to improve your situation. Of course, that looks different for everyone. Maybe it means working out more or eating better, maybe it means reading a book per month, or saving money, but we think the start of a new year is the perfect time to start making plans and preparations for bettering your home or business. Is it time for you to start thinking about a new roof? New year, new roof. Let our incredible crew at Tennessee Roofing & Construction in Chattanooga help.

Here are a few FAQs about roofs we think might be helpful as you move into the new year.

 

Q: How do I know when I need a new roof?

A: There are lots of things to look for, tell tale signs (ranging from obvious to subtle) that your roof may need to be replaced. Missing or curling shingles, dark streaks and stains, water damage or signs of leaks indoors, visibly rotting areas, moss or algae growing, and more.

Q: What will a new roof cost?

A: The price of a new roofing system will vary greatly depending on materials chosen, size and shape of the roof being replaced, location of the building, and the contractor you choose to handle the job. If you’d like to get a quote for the job, just reach out and we’ll be glad to help!

Q: How long can I expect my new roofing system to last?

A: Again, this will vary depending on the quality of materials used, craftsmanship, location, and more. Generally speaking, you could expect a new roof to last up to 20 years.

Q: What is roof flashing?

A: Flashing is the material that’s used over joints in roof construction, functioning as an extra layer to protect areas like roof valleys from damage. The state of your roof flashing can be a great indicator of what shape your roof is in, and whether or not it’s time to consider repairs or total replacement.

Q: How long will it take to have a new roofing system installed?

A: Again, this is greatly dependent on factors such as size and shape of your home or building, type of roof and materials being used, etc. Timing can also be affected majorly by the size of the crew completing the work, as well as other elements such as the weather. Our team at Tennessee Roofing & Construction can assess your project, and give you information about a timeline specific to your roof situation.

Q: What are the dark stains I see on my roof?

A: It’s not uncommon to see stains on a roof, especially in wet and/or humid climates. The stains you detect are actually plant growth– moss, algae, or lichens– which can start to grow on your roof and spread. Though this is common, it’s important to periodically wash these stains off the roofing surface to protect its integrity. If not, they can eat away at the asphalt and shingles that exist to protect your home and mitigate moisture or water damage.

When you let Tennessee Roofing and Construction install a new roof on your Chattanooga home, you know it'll be built to last, with a 2-year performance guarantee.

Q: Can I have my roof repaired or a new roof installed during the winter months?

A: Yes, you can. Though it can be trickier to plan roofing projects during the winter months due to weather restraints, storage of necessary materials, etc., it can be done. If your roof needs work, especially in the event of extensive damage, please don’t hesitate to contact our experienced roofing crew. We want to help, regardless of the time of year.

Q: Can you get a warranty on a new roof?

A: Actually, yes. At TRC, we offer a 2-year performance guarantee on all of our work on new roofing installation or roof leak repairs above and beyond the manufacturer’s warranty. We stand behind our work!

As you look toward a new year, manifest all the good you can muster. Apart from that, plan ahead. Make some decisions about what’s important to you, and what things you want to accomplish as far as your home or your business is concerned. If it’s time for a new roof, we hope you’ll give us the opportunity to help you navigate the process, and as always, don’t hesitate to reach out with questions, for a quote, or to get the ball rolling on your new roofing project today!

The Benefits of Chattanooga Cool Roof Design

What is a “cool roof”? It has nothing to do with how “cool” the top of your structure looks (although we can appreciate style points). Made from highly reflective tiles or shingles, a sheet covering, or a type of paint, cool roofs reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than standard roofs. They can reduce energy bills, but you should always factor in the climate and other considerations before installing for this purpose.
