Woodiwiss Roofing FAQ
The roof is one of the most important parts of your home, and it needs to be in the very best condition to protect your home from the elements and for optimal energy efficiency Over time, roofs can become damaged or worn, and this can lead to leaks and other problems. If you don’t replace your roof when it’s time, you could end up causing serious damage to your home.
There are a few different reasons why you might need to replace your roof. If your roof is more than 20 years old, it’s time to start thinking about replacing it. Other signs that you need a new roof include leaks, missing shingles, and damage from storms.
Replacing your roof can be a big project, but it’s important to do, especially if your roof is in bad shape. A new roof will protect your home and help it to last for many years to come. Here are some frequently asked questions we get from homeowners:
Should I Replace My Roof Before Listing it For Sale?
You’ve probably heard the old real estate adage, “Location, location, location.” But there’s another important factor to consider when you’re selling your home: its condition. You might be wondering, “Should I replace my roof before listing it for sale?”
The condition of your roof has a big impact on your home’s value. If your roof is in bad shape, it could deter potential buyers or lead to a lower sales price. On the other hand, if your roof is in good condition, it could help you get a higher price for your home.

What Happens if Someone Gets Hurt While Working on My Roof?
Generally speaking, owners are not responsible for roofing contractors while they are working on a residential roof. Injuries on a roof can be caused by a variety of factors, ranging from severe weather conditions to faulty equipment. Properly licensed and insured roofing contractors are required to carry not only workman’s compensation insurance but also an umbrella accident/injury policy protecting workers. Any claim of injury by a worker is handled through the contractor’s general liability insurance.
How Can I Tell if My Roof Needs Replacing?
If your roof is nearing the end of its lifespan, it may be time to start thinking about replacing it. But how do you know if your roof needs replacing or if it just needs repair?
There are a few telltale signs that your roof may need to be replaced, such as:
- Shingles that are cracked, curled, or missing
- Excessive moss or algae growth
- Leaks or water damage
- Daylight visible through the roof
What is the Best Type of Roof?
Asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing material for residential homes, according to the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA). Asphalt shingles are affordable, durable and easy to install, making them a good choice for most homeowners. Concrete tile roofing is another popular option for residential roofs. Concrete tiles are more expensive than asphalt shingles, but they are also more durable.
How Long do Roofs Last?
The type of roof you have will also determine how long it will last. For example, asphalt shingles are the most common type of roofing material and have an average lifespan of 20 to 25 years. However, concrete roofs are long-lasting and can hold up to the elements for up to 50 years, while clay tile roofs can last up to 100 years. If you’re unsure what type of roof is best for your home, contact us and one of our roofing experts can help you make the best decision.
