COMMON ROOF QUESTIONS

When should I replace my roof?

The typical 3 tab asphalt shingle lasts about 18-20 years. An architectural shingle can last 25-35 years depending on quality. A rubber roof can last 30-50 years. There are things you can do to maximize it and things you can do to lower the lifespan.

What will a new roof cost?

This is a tough one to answer because everyone’s home is different. The best way to get a solid estimate is to simply call your local trusted roofing professional. Most reputable roofers will offer a quote at no cost, and with no obligation. Know that every aspect of your home, like shape, size, and location, will affect the price of your new roof, as will the material you choose.

Can my roof be insured?

This is a tough one to answer because everyone’s home is different. The best way to get a solid estimate is to simply call your local trusted roofing professional. Most reputable roofers will offer a quote at no cost, and with no obligation. Know that every aspect of your home, like shape, size, and location, will affect the price of your new roof, as will the material you choose.

My roof is leaking, does it need to totally be replaced?

One or two leaks are not a major disaster. So long as you call a roofing professional and get the leaks fixed as soon as you notice the problem, your roof will probably be fine. If you have more than one or two leaks, however, you may be looking at some more extensive repairs.

Additionally, if you wait to get leaks fixed, water can seep under shingles and begin to rot away at the roof deck. When this happens, there’s typically no other solution than to get your roof replaced. It’s important to make sure you call a professional at the first sign of a leak if you’re looking to avoid a total roof replacement.

How long will it take to install?

Again, this one is dependent on the shape of your home, and what type of new roof you’re having installed. A new roof can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. If you’re having an asphalt roof installed on top of an old one, expect the job to take less time, because the roofers won’t have to strip the previous roof. Timing will also depend on the size of your roofers’ crew, and the weather.

Roofing can be dangerous work, and roofers have to ensure that their workers will be safe while up on the roof, so inclement weather could put your roof installation on a longer timeline. For a more concrete answer on how long it will take to install your new roof, be sure to get estimates from multiple trusted roofers in your area. Most of them will offer a comprehensive timeline, and some contracts even include a penalty in the event that the roof is not completed on deadline.

My roof has dark Black & Green stains, is that normal?

In humid and wet climates, it’s totally normal for your roof to develop black and green stains over time. These stains are actually plant growth: moss, algae, or lichens, which latch onto your roof and begin to spread. While it’s not uncommon to see these stains, it is important to wash them off regularly.

As these little plants begin to spread, they’ll eat away at the asphalt granules and shingles that work to keep your home safe and dry. If left to their own devices, they can eat all the way into the roof deck, causing leaks, rot, mold, and even major water damage. So, when you start to see odd discolorations on your roof, know that it’s probably time for a roof cleaning. A quick and easy way to get rid of those unwanted growths, regular cleaning keeps your roof looking spotless, and can extend its lifespan significantly

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

“We cannot say enough good things about our recent top to bottom renovation with Legacy. Their workmanship was first rate. They bent over backwards to accommodate our every wish. And though we changed our minds several times, they came through time and time again. It is this singular ability to listen that really impressed us. Not to mention coming in on budget and on time. Not always an easy thing to find these days. It was a tremendous experience and we would go with Legacy again in a heartbeat.”

ERNIE SCHENCK

From the outset, when the construction bids were being reviewed with multiple builders, it became evident none approached the personal involvement and attention to detail exhibited by the Legacy group,The reconstruction — a century old carriage house—was extensive complicated, and subject to the requirements of the town’s Historic Commission.. As the project proceeded —and it proved to be as complex as forecast—it became obvious we made the right choice. The Legacy team exceeded all our expectations. Without hesitation, I recommend Legacy Construction for your building project.

GENE MCKEE

Eric C and his partner, Bill, provided top of the line service, materials, and workmanship. Contractors they brought in ie, electrician, carpenters, plumber, provided excellent service, were respectful, worked diligently. Weekly online status reports were provided by Eric so nothing slipped through the cracks. When a few unforeseen items arose which added to the scope of the initial project, Eric communicated timely and addressed accordingly and still managed to stay on schedule. We had an unusually rainy spring season, yet his team managed to pick up the pace and make it all happen. I would use them again and again! 5 stars for Legacy
