How long does it take to replace a roof?
It depends on the size, pitch, design, and if a tear-off is required. Most residential roofs can be installed in two days.
What is power washing?
Power washing, or pressure washing, is the application of high pressure water spray to a surface such as wood, stone, brick, concrete, aluminum siding, roofing shingles and others. The pressurized water removes unsightly mold, mildew, and dirt stains bringing back that original new look.
How do I know if I need a new roof?
Visually inspect the condition of your roof. Look for shingles that are cracked, curled, stained, faded or missing. Also, consider the age of your roof. If it's nearing the end of its expected life, it may be time for a new installation.
How often should I have my gutters cleaned?
At least twice a year. If you have many trees by your house you should clean them 3 to 4 times a year to prevent major damage to your roof, walls, siding, and foundation. Clogged gutters allow rainwater to accumulate and weigh down and eventually pull gutters loose from their mountings.
