When Do I Need a New Roof?
Replacing your roof is a big investment and you should not delay. Leaving your roof in that condition can lead to thousands of dollars in home repairs from leaky shingles to structural damage. Here are a few signs it’s time for a new roofing system:
When you see wet spots on your ceiling, in the attic, or crawl spaces
When you notice chimney’s masonry has cracked.
Shingles are buckling, curled, missing or broken tiles
When your shingles are blistering
Shingles are badly aging and missing shingles
When you notice signs of roof rot, such as a spongy feeling when you walk on it.
There is water leakage in your eaves.
Your flashing is compromised, or completely damaged.
When it comes to hiring a roofer to inspect your roof, look for someone who understands how roofing projects work. Though the signs of damage to a roof are not usually visible, a roof that is too old may be prone to failure. Roofing contractors at EBA Roofing Inc. will give you honest, straightforward advice about when to replace your roof.
How Do I Choose the Right Roofing Contractor?
Once you make your decision to hire a contractor, consider carefully what your contractor can offer you and make sure they can give you what you need. Having a contractor that can do a good job will unlikely earn them more money than you can make when your roofing needs are met without them.
First, ask around for a good roofing contractor, but don’t go overboard with the questions. Find the best one for you and give them a try. Ask family, and friends what they recommend. Word of mouth is one of the most reliable ways to judge the roofing contractor you want to work with, since you’re speaking to people who have already worked with the roofing company. Also, goolge the company website and look at the roofer’s reviews and testimonials from previous customers.
Next, investigate the company, and look for manufacturer designations, and positives with the Better Business Bureau, and proper licensing and insurance. Make sure to ask about the company. Manufacturer designations show that the company is licensed and insured to work in your area. Insurance shows that the company is responsible for their work and will pay for any damages that occur while they are working on your home. Finally, ask about the quality of the work. Make sure to ask about the quality of the materials used in the roofing job. Ask the contractor about the warranty of the work. Finally, consider the cost of the job. Make sure to compare quotes, and make sure to factor in the cost of materials and the cost of the time the contractor will spend working on your roof. If you are working with a budget, make sure to add these costs in as well.

Do I Need to Do Anything to Prepare for New Roof Installation?
In order to replace your old roof, there are a few small steps you can take for a smooth roofing process. At first, remove loose items from your walls and shelves. While hammering up on your roof can sometimes cause enough vibration to make unsecured items fall. So, clear all your driveway as much as possible and the areas around your home. Usually, a roofing material may be infilled, but when the weather conditions make it impractical, the roofing material may fall into the driveway. The contractor also appreciates the extra space for work vehicles and equipment. EBA Roofing Inc. completes most new roofing jobs the very same day for minimal interruption to your life. A quality roofing contractor will, in some cases, take the remainder of the job to show you how to have a roof that is worthy of your expectations.
How Long Will My New Roof Last?

Proper maintenance and weather conditions can extend the lifespan of your roof. Additionally, the better quality the materials and the contractor, the longer your roof will last.
