Roofing FAQs

Replacing a residential roof is a labor-intensive project and, depending on the type of roof, could take anywhere from a one day to a few days or more depending on the size and complexity. The time involved is substantially affected by the weather, as well.

Asphalt shingles can be installed properly during cold weather (late fall and winter) only if additional, costly measures are taken. Most asphalt shingle manufactures require that a specialized adhesive is manually applied the each shingle if temperatures are below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

Manufacturers of asphalt shingles recommend a pitch of 4/12 or more, but the absolute minimum pitch is 2/12. Pitch is measured in inches of vertical rise of the roof over one foot (12 inches) of horizontal run. So a 4/12 pitch roof rises 4 inchesfor every 12 inches of horizontal run.

Architectural asphalt — These products last about 30 years on average. Wood shingles and shakes — Wood roofing has a target lifetime of 30 years, but it can last much longer under moderate weather conditions.

Material lifespan:

Wood Shake14-20 years
Asphalt Shingle10-30 years (20 is the norm)
Metal/Steel50+ years
Slate50+ years
Tile/Concrete50+ years
Foam25+ years
Built-Up (BUR)25-30 years
Single-Ply30+ years

This may surprise you — metal roofing is often quieter than an asphalt shingle roof. When installed with solid sheathing, a metal roof on your home will actually silence noise from rain, hail and bad weather better than other roofing materials.

The concern about metal roofs attracting lightning strikes is most likely associated with the fact that metal can be an electrical conductor. Even so, metal roofs do not attract lightning and are not struck any more frequently than other roofing materials.

If you have insurance and insurance is paying it is always your deductible, plus upgrades if any.

While a lot of people think that a leaking roof needs to be replaced, this may not be the case unless the roof is old. Missing, cracked, broken, and curling shingles can be repaired and replaced to stop a leak, while older roofs or roofs with multiple leaks or widespread issues should be replaced.

Costs vary greatly depending on the pitch of your roof, the type of shingles you have, what condition the roof is in, and how many layers of shingles you have. The best way to find out the cost is to have a free quote done.

Commercial Roofing FAQs

If there is mold, bad water stains, cracked, curled or missing shingles you may need a new roof. We can help you determine the best plan of action to best protect your business.

Most roofing systems manufacturers today highly recommend the installation of walk pads in areas of high foot traffic and around rooftop equipment such as HVAC units, vents, and pumps. These resilient puncture resistant protection pads provide the added membrane protection needed when these units are serviced should hand tools, parts, fasteners or access panels be accidentally dropped or not be secured properly, walk pads protect the roofing membrane so that potential holes which could lead to leaking if often prevented. They are also a safe, simple, economical solution to protecting your roof from damaging foot traffic and when installed correctly and spaced correctly they will not “dam” water and offer superior as well as safer traction on smooth surface roofs.

There is no way to get a direct answer to this type of question since the price of any roofing project will depend on a lot of factors. For example, what kind of roof you would like, how big the building is, and more. The best way to know for sure is to contact Heritage Builders for a free estimate.

Our goal is the same as yours – to complete the project with optimal results in the least amount of time at the right cost. With that in mind, we will provide the right number of technicians to complete the job.

Commercial metal roofing is among the most durable roofing systems on the market, but metal roofs require at least 4% slope, according to the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA). For flat roofs—or those with less than a 4% slope—a built-up roof membrane provides increased durability over most single-ply roofing systems.
