How do I know if I need roofing services?

There are several red-flags that are definite signs that you are in need of roofing services such as a leaking roof, missing shingles, algae growth, or a bowing roof. However, just because your roof looks like it’s in good shape from where you’re standing, doesn’t mean that it is not in need of any repairs or even a replacement. 

The best way to determine if your roof is in need of services is to schedule regular preventative roof maintenance appointments with your local roofing contractor. With preventative maintenance, you’ll always have an understanding of the condition of your roof so you can mentally and financially prepare for upcoming roofing service expenses. 

How do I tell if I need a roof repair or replacement?

If you are having problems with your roof, it can be difficult for a homeowner to discern between whether you are in need of a roof repair or replacement. The best way to determine this is by having your local roofing company perform a roof inspection. Many roofing companies, like Denali Roofing, offer this service free of charge.

How much does a roof replacement cost?

The price of a roof replacement depends on a number of variables and, therefore, we cannot give you a set price right in this blog post. The material of your current roof and your material choice for your new roof have an effect on the final price, as does the slope of your roof. For an accurate price for your new roof, give Denali Roofing a call and schedule a free inspection. 

Can I handle roof repairs myself?

While some homeowners do attempt to complete roof repairs on their own, we don’t necessarily recommend that. It can be dangerous to climb up onto your roof, especially with tools in hand. You also run the risk of making a mistake, which can end up costing you more when a roofing company has to come out and now repair the original damage and the new damage from your DIY attempt. A professional roofing company has the knowledge to do the job correctly and the training needed to be safe.

What can I do to extend the life of my roof?

If you would like to extend the life of your roof, the preventative roof maintenance program from Denali Roofing can help with that. We will regularly check up on your roof to determine its condition and whether any repairs are needed. Regular roof maintenance will allow us to catch small problems while they are still small and easily fixable, rather than these issues growing into larger problems that may cause the need for a premature roof replacement. 

I’m considering replacing my roof. How much should an estimate cost?

If you are considering replacing your roof, there are roofing companies that will provide you with a free roof inspection. At Denali Roofing, we start every relationship by providing you with a free roof inspection so that you can have a clear idea of the condition of your roof. From there, we can make a recommendation if roof replacement or just some repairs are the best decision for you.
