Are you about to buy your first home? Or, are you about to buy your first home in Louisiana? Below are just a few of the FAQs we get from our customers.

How much will it cost to replace my roof?

One of the first questions people have when it comes to roof replacement is “how much will this cost?” Replacing a roof can be expensive, and it’s natural to be concerned about the expense. However, the cost to replace a roof can vary based on a variety of factors, such as the types of materials you choose (i.e., rubber roofing, tile roofing, metal roofing, or asphalt shingles, among others), the quality of the instillation, and the size of your home, among others.

How long will it take to reroof my home?

Trying to answer this question is also like trying to hit a moving target- because the time it will take to reroof your home will also depend on a variety of factors. Whereas the average reroofing job can be completed in 3-4 days, if jobs are especially complex, they can take a bit longer. If you have questions or concerns about how long the job will take, be sure to ask your roofing contractor to provide you with a detailed answer.

How long is my roof supposed to last?

A well-maintained asphalt shingle roof can last between 20-30 years, depending on how well it’s cared for. For example, if you notice that you have cracked or missing shingles, you’ll want to get those repaired right away. A well-maintained, well cared for roof will last a lot longer than a roof that’s been neglected.  Also, worth mentioning, is that you’ll want to have your roof inspected at least twice a year: once in the spring and again in the fall. You should also have it inspected after each major weather event.  If you’re concerned about that cost, you needn’t be. Reputable roofing contractors provide this service for free. If they find signs of damage, they’ll explain what they’ve found and the repairs that need to be done. Additionally, if they suspect the repairs will be covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy, they’ll contact your insurance carrier on your behalf.
