Our roofers have extensive experience working with all of these materials, ensuring proper installation and long-lasting performance.

Roofing Process

The completion time of a roofing project can vary depending on the size of the roof, the complexity of the job, the roofing material being used, and weather conditions. On average, a typical residential roof replacement can take anywhere from 1 to 3 days. Our roofers will provide you with a detailed timeline before beginning any work.

When you choose Alan’s Roofing for your roofing project, you can expect a smooth, professional experience from start to finish. Our roofing contractors will arrive on time, prepared with all the necessary materials and equipment. After the job is completed, we’ll conduct a final inspection and clean up the job site, leaving your property looking as good as new.

While you do not strictly need to be at home during the entire roofing process, we recommend having someone present. Our roofers will keep you informed throughout the project, but having a point of contact on-site can help guarantee a smooth and efficient process.

Roof Replacement & Repair

There are several signs that can indicate whether you need roof repairs or a roof replacement. If you notice missing, cracked, or curling shingles, water stains on ceilings or walls, leaks, or excessive granule loss, it may be time for repairs. 

The life expectancy of a new roof depends on the roofing material used, the quality of installation, and exposure to weather conditions. A shingle roof can last 25 years on average, while metal and tile roofing systems can last 40+ years. Proper maintenance and regular roof inspections can help extend the life of your roof.

After severe weather events like thunderstorms, hurricanes, or hail storms, it’s essential to inspect your roof for potential damage. Signs of storm damage can include missing, cracked, or dented shingles, leaks, granule loss, and visible dents or punctures in metal or tile roofs.

Roofing Materials

The best roofing material for your home depends on your budget, aesthetic preferences, climate conditions, and architectural style. Our team can help you evaluate each material to help you make an informed decision based on your specific needs and requirements.

Asphalt shingles are cost-effective, versatile, and easy to install and maintain. However, they have a shorter life expectancy compared to other materials and may need to be more energy-efficient. Metal roofing is durable, energy-efficient, and low-maintenance but can be more expensive upfront. Tile roofing is long-lasting, fire-resistant, and adds aesthetic appeal, but it can be heavy and costly. Each material has its unique advantages and disadvantages, which our team can discuss in detail to help you make an informed choice.

Choosing the right color for your new roof is a decision that impacts the overall appearance and curb appeal of your home. You’ll want to consider the architectural style of your home, the color of your siding or exterior finishes, and the overall color scheme of your neighborhood. Neutral colors like gray, tan, and brown are common choices that complement a variety of home styles, while bolder colors like red, blue, or green can add color and personality.
