Excessive rain and stormy weather can cause severe damage to your furniture and walls if your roof is not robust. So, to prevent any adverse effects which could prove to be expensive, it’s vital to conduct regular roofing maintenance.

However, when it comes to roofing projects, there are tons of questions clients have, but they may find it tricky to get all the answers that they’re seeking.

So, to ensure you have all your doubts cleared, MJ Guardian Roofing wants to equip you with the most accurate and relevant information, and to do this, we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions about roofing.

1. How do I know if I should replace my roof?
A roof usually lasts about ten to fifteen years maximum. Once your roof is over ten years, you should be aware of that and starting planning for a replacement. For roofs with cracks and edges worn out, it’s a sign that the shingles are getting old.

2. Which type of shingles suits my house?
Many manufacturers in the market make roof shingles, and they have different features. You can decide on the best one for your needs based on duration, wind performance, and the pattern you prefer. 

3. How do I choose a trustworthy roofer?
As there are plenty of vendors in the market, it can make customers confused. Consequently, it makes it imperative to check a few essential things, like if the company is fully insured, licensed, and is willing to share references. 

4. Should I buy material myself and only pay company labor?
We don’t suggest customers buy material themselves unless they’re getting an amazing rate. Keep in mind that the required materials do not consist of shingles alone, but also all other accessories like metal valleys and nails. Those things are hard to count precisely and can cause more trouble for the rebuy and return process. Overall, the company can get a better deal and help you deal with the entire delivery and disposal process.

5. How long can my roof last if there are cracks on my shingles already?
No one can tell precisely how long a roof can last, as it depends on the previous roofer’s craftsmanship and many other factors. We suggest you change it before any leakage happens, and at least cover it before replacement.

6. Is the estimate free?
Actually, our whole roof replacement is free. We send a salesperson to your location to show you samples and explain the work process in detail. However, the leak inspection costs a bit, so we will deduct money if customers replace the roof later.

7. Do you have a financial plan available?
Yes, we do have a few options for that. Please contact us for more details.
