1.   How can I tell when my roof needs to be replaced?

You can expect a good roof to last between two and three decades. Once your roof has been around for this long, it might be worthwhile to go ahead and schedule a replacement. Another sign it’s time to replace your roof is that you’re constantly spending money on repairs. Once the cost of repairs begins to add up, it’s worthwhile to consider roof replacement. Significant water damage is another indicator your roof needs to be updated as it can often precede collapse.

2.   Should I repair my roof instead?

If your roof damage is not extensive, you can save money and time by simply having your roof repaired. This option is only possible if your roof’s structural integrity is intact. Continuing to repair a roof that has significant problems can lead to disaster down the road. It’s better to replace your roof before it collapses or leads to serious damage inside your home.

3.   What options are available for financing a new roof?

A new roof can be a sizable investment. However, financing a new roof is easy with options from J&J Roofing. We offer more than one financing option including 6.99 percent on a five-year loan or 12 months same as cash.

4.   What are the advantages of working with a residential roofing contractor?

In the age of DIY, unlicensed roofers are a dime a dozen. However, working with an amateur roofer means working with a roofer that isn’t properly licensed and insured. If an unlicensed roofer damages your roof due to negligence, you could end up losing money. Worse, they could become injured while on your property, causing a liability that costs you in court.
