Roofing contractors are the most knowledgeable people who can share crucial information about your roof. During a roof inspection, ask questions to learn about your roofing system. Find out your roof’s age and if there is existing damage that needs to be addressed.
Window World of Boston, one of the best roofing and window installation companies in the area, shares a list of questions that you should discuss with your roofer.
What Type of Roofing System Do I Have?
If you recently bought your home, ask your roofing contractor about the type of roof installed on your home. They’ll let you know the material and any special features the roof may have. For instance, they can tell if you have Class D impact-resistant shingles or algae-resistant ones.
How Old Is the Roof?
An old roof can suffer severe damage during a storm. If you bought a new property and the seller can’t provide documentation of the roof’s age, you can ask one roofing and window installation contractors to determine the years left on the roof before it needs replacement.
Is There Any Damage to the Roof?
Previous or existing damage on a roof makes it vulnerable to storm damage. It needs immediate repair or replacement, so ask your roofer for ways to extend your roof’s lifespan and improve performance.
Does the Roof Have Proper Ventilation?
Ventilation reduces attic humidity by letting warm air escape and cool, fresh air enter. Well-ventilated roofs keep their sheathing and rafters in top shape. Roofs with excellent ventilation last longer, so ask your contractor how to improve this aspect of the roofing system.
