DO YOU CHARGE FOR ESTIMATES?

Full Scale Roofing will not charge you a fee to determine how much it’s going to cost for a new or replacement roof. We recommend that you conduct regular inspections in order to make sure everything is okay and diagnose any problems before they materialize into something bigger.

WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A PROPOSAL?

Whenever you look at an estimate for repairs to your roof, make sure that it includes a comprehensive analysis of the type of roof covering, the materials to be used, how the work is going to be performed, the exact specification of the repair, the start and finish date, and time and the length of any warranty. Full Scale Roofing will always provide you with such a detailed analysis in order to help you make the best decisions for your property.

IS IT OKAY TO WORK ON THE ROOF IN THE WINTER?

Generally speaking, there are no hard and fast guidelines relating to the ambient temperature when laying asphalt shingles. While the shingles may become brittle in very cold weather, the contractor can bypass this issue by storing them in containers and only loading them to the roof as and when needed. If windy conditions are prevalent, then additional adhesive can be applied to the underside of shingles in addition to the self-sealing strips, which will ensure that they do not blow off in any storm and allow the sealing strips to set correctly.

HOW DO I KNOW WHEN MY ROOF HAS PROBLEMS?

It’s best not to wait until a storm arrives and you find out that you have water infiltration somewhere. Experts advise that you should have a periodic inspection about twice per year to look for warped, missing or cracked shingles and to see whether the flashings are failing. In the meantime, if you notice a lot of surface granules (from the shingles) laying around close to downspouts after a heavy rain shower, then this may be a sign that you need an inspection.

IF MY ROOF LEAKS WILL I NEED A COMPLETE REPLACEMENT?

This is not necessarily the case, as leaks can be a result of damage to only part of the roof, or could also result from flashings that have deteriorated. Full Scale Roofing will conduct a complete inspection for you at no charge, should you have any worries.

COULD I DO THE WORK BY MYSELF?

This is not something that we advise. Remember that our roofing contractors are all professionally trained in order to work safely on your roof. They are also well trained in procedures and will conduct all work, whether inspection or repair, very efficiently. It’s possible that you might use an incorrect technique if you try to do this yourself, or worse, fall and injure yourself.

Full Scale Roofing recommends that you inspect your roofing systems only from a safe location, using binoculars or some other device to look at the condition of the shingles and other areas. Be very careful when cleaning the gutters after the fall season to get rid of debris and dead leaves.
