Frequently Asked Questions About Roofing From Your Mooresville Roofer

 

Ultimate Roofing is the greater Lake Norman and Mooresville area’s trusted provider of roofing solutions that go above and beyond just keeping the rain off your head!

 

Question: How often should I have my roof inspected for possible problems? –Amanda, Mooresville, NC

Answer: It’s a good idea to have your roof inspected at least once a year, preferably during the spring or fall when the weather conditions are milder and less extreme. Some companies say you should only have your roof inspected when you start noticing signs of water damage, leakage from the roof, or irregularities in your heating bill. The problem with this approach is, damage from extreme weather such as summer storms, lightning strikes, or freeze-thaw patterns almost never happen right when you’re having the roof inspected anyway. Roofs are not self-healing, which means any damage incurred during these events can spread and grow out of control before your next scheduled inspection, making it more difficult and expensive to fix. At Ultimate Roofing, Inc., we recommend you consider having your roof inspected if any of the following is true of your situation:

  • You haven’t had your roof inspected in at least 12 calendar months;
  • After a significant severe weather event;
  • After any smoke or fire incident in your home;
  • Or if you notice signs of water infiltration from the roof such as discoloration in the ceiling or dampness in the walls near the ceiling line.

The obvious advantage to having a concrete schedule and plan for inspecting your roof consistently is that doing so can definitely help minimize any damage to your home, belongings or your family’s health from defects, damage, or problems with your roof. Regular inspections also help keep the cost of any necessary repairs down and allow you to identify problem areas before they become difficult, expensive renovation projects rather than simple fixes.

 

Question: I’m thinking about a cedar shake roof, but I’m not sure how long they last? –Linda, Mooresville, NC

Answer: As roofing materials go, cedar shakes are some of the most elegant and environmentally friendly options around. With regular inspection and maintenance, and assuming no catastrophic damage from unusually severe weather, fire, lightning strikes, and so on, your cedar shake roof should be good for at least 30 years, with some homeowners reporting lifespans of over 50 years. Of course, your roof should be checked regularly for damaged and split shakes, water leakage, and other signs of damage. Any damaged shakes should definitely be replaced as soon as possible to help your roof maintain its beauty and functionality and give you the excellent results you and your family deserve!

 

Question: Why do copper roofs turn green? –Joel, Mooresville, NC

Answer: Copper is a reactive element that oxidizes, or rusts, in the presence of water and air over time. If this oxidization is not cleaned off, you end up with a green appearance called a patina. You’ve probably noticed this in old pennies which have been exposed to a lot of weather or water and not properly cleaned off. You can also see this phenomenon in the Statue of Liberty, which is made of copper, or the domes of capitol buildings all over the US. The green patina helps to protect and preserve the underlying material, unlike iron rust, which keeps going until it eats away the metal. Of course, on the Eastern seaboard, we definitely highly recommend against the use of copper as a roofing material, both because of corrosion and because copper is also a great conductor of electricity, meaning it’s more likely to attract a lightning bolt during storms and some people don’t like the color when the patina sets in! This is why you’ll notice that many buildings with copper roofs also have lightning rods, to help channel lightning away from the roof properly and give it a safe route to the ground.

 

Question: Why do gutter guards matter for my roof? –George, Mooresville, NC

Answer: Gutter guards help keep leaves, debris, and even small animals out of your gutters so they can properly channel water away from the roof and down to the ground, preventing standing water damage and helping keep water from leaking into the interior of the building. Some people don’t like or want them because they feel like the guards are aesthetically unpleasing, but anyone who’s ever done gutter cleaning in the springtime after a hard winter can tell you gutter guards will save you a ton of time, labor and headaches—and probably keep you from having to deal with some fairly gross things, like dead birds and small rodents! That’s why your Mooresville roofers recommend having gutter guards

 

Question: Is metal roofing dangerous to have because of lightning? –Norm, Mooresville, NC

Answer: The short answer is, it depends on the kind of metal. Tin or corrugated metal roofing is less conductive than copper, which means it’s less likely to build up the type of static charge that leads to lightning strikes, to begin with. Also, a lot of people like the sound of rain on a metal roof, or prefer to use metal roofing as a matter of tradition or historical accuracy. Metal’s biggest advantage over wood is that it’s less susceptible to water damage. However, the biggest drawback of metal roofing is that when a section goes, it will often have sharp edges which can be dangerous on its own but also can compromise the adjacent sections. Having said that, with proper workmanship by a skilled craftsman, a metal roof should give you decades of worry-free protection from the elements, especially if you’re using it for a garage or shed!

 

Question:  Does the kind of shingles I use on my roof matter, or can I mix it up when I do my home makeover? –Maria, Mooresville, NC

Answer: To a degree, yes, it does. The pitch, or slope, of your roof, plays a major role in determining what sort of roofing materials would work best for your home, as well as the overall design. Imagine a Victorian house with a Spanish clay tile roof or a Craftsman ranch with a tin roof. Not a very appealing picture, is it? A sharper pitch would lend itself better to shingles or possibly shakes than tile or a metal roof, while a shallow pitch is more forgiving and allows for more options in the type of roofing you go with. However, there’s another important point to consider: the weight. If your roof was designed with asphalt shingle in mind, and you want to go with clay tiles, your roof might not be able to take the excess weight without structural reinforcement. When you call Ultimate Roofing, Inc. for your free estimate, we’ll take a look at the roof and recommend alternate roofing types your home should be able to withstand.

 

Question: What does “pitch” mean when you’re talking about roofing? –Michael, Troutman, NC

Answer: The pitch is the angle of the roof, expressed as a fraction of “rise” over “run,” an equation you may be familiar with from high school math. For example, a 4/12 pitch like you see on most ranch houses means the roof “rises” four inches for every twelve horizontal inches of “run.” A 12/12 pitch is a very steep 45-degree angle most commonly seen in America in Victorian or Cape Cod-style homes, although you can find them in other forms of architecture like church roofs as well. A 1/12 pitch is nearly flat and most commonly used in the Southwest with clay tile roofing. Anything under a 6/12 pitch is considered low pitch because it’s easy to walk on, but 6/12 and above is considered a steep pitch roof. Steep pitch roofs require special safety gear such as tie-off harnesses and toe boards to walk and work on safely. You can roughly calculate the pitch of your roof using a protractor to measure the approximate angle your roof forms with the horizon line.

 

Question: What questions should I ask my Mooresville roofing contractor when I need roof repair? –Matt, Mooresville, NC

Answer: This is a great question that, honestly, we wish more people asked! When you’re looking for a roofer Mooresville and the surrounding area can rely on, some questions you should ask include:

Do you offer free estimates?

Most roofing contractors these days will be happy to give you a free estimate on request, although the numbers you’re quoted could vary widely depending on the type of roof, materials they intend to use, and, frankly, how good they are at their job. Also, beware of roofers using high-pressure sales tactics to try to nudge you to act before you’re ready! Ultimate Roofing, Inc. takes pride in offering a fair price for the results you get, so when the job is done, you’ll feel like your time and money were well spent. And we never give you a hard sell!

Do you have a contractor’s license?

In the state of North Carolina, contractors are required by law to carry state licensure, mandatory insurance and to be bonded against incidental damage caused by their actions. Many fly-by-night roofers and con artists will try to downplay this or say it’s not that big a deal. Always look to make sure the contractor is listed on the North Carolina Licensing Board for General Contractors website, so you know you’re dealing with a reputable Mooresville roofing company and not a shady jumped-up maintenance person!

Do you have reviews on Angie’s List, the Better Business Bureau, Yelp! and/or Google?

A reputable roofing company with a high BBB rating and good reviews will be happy to give you this information, and in fact, many post it right on their websites so you can quickly and easily check out their reputation. The absence of reviews doesn’t always mean a given roofing contractor doesn’t do a good job, but verified reviews from residential and commercial customers the contractor has worked within the recent past can go a long way toward putting you at ease with your choice. If you’re pleased with the results you get from Ultimate Roofing, Inc., we request you give us a review on your favorite websites to help others find us and get the same great results!

Do you work with homeowners’ insurance carriers?

At Ultimate Roofing, Inc., we know dealing with unexpected roofing issues is a pain, and dealing with insurance companies is never a lot of fun. We’re happy to help you file a claim with your homeowners’ policy and work with your carrier to make sure your roof, and your life, get back to normal as quickly as possible!

Question: I think I may need roof repair in Mooresville NC but I’m worried it’s going to cost too much. How much money should I expect to pay for a Mooresville roofing company to work on the leak repair my roof needs? –Kaitlin, Mooresville, NC

Answer: Most any local roofing contractor in Mooresville, or for that matter anywhere in North Carolina, will tell you that the cost to repair or replace local roofing depends on a number of factors. High-tech roof technologies or a “green” roofing system may cost more to repair than standard two-layer asphalt shingle roofs. A flat roof may be easier to work on than executed a steep pitch shingle roof repair. Having one spot or area repaired due to hail damage will obviously be easier and less expensive than having to do a complete roof removal and roof replacement. If storm damage such as a lightning bolt gave your home or business an unexpected and unwanted skylight installation, this could lead to additional expenses because you have to account not only for the cost of quality roof materials and repairs, but other damages within the building such as water, elemental and mold damage to windows, drywall or any appliance repair which may be necessary because of the storm.

Question: How do I know if my roof is doing its job, and what are some signs it isn’t? –Mac, Mooresville, NC

Answer: The great thing about roofing is that it’s one of the rare areas where it’s possible and even easy to prove a negative! Fact is, most roofing experts agree the first indication of a possible roofing problem in homes usually isn’t water or wind infiltration, unless your roof is damaged by snow, hail or other storm damage. Instead, it’s a steady, creeping climb in your energy bill as you get into the hotter and colder times of the year and your building’s heating and air conditioning systems have to work harder to maintain a stable temperature while the outside temps and weather change. If you notice your energy bill rising even though nothing else in how you use the system has changed, or if you’re using your HVAC less and still paying more for it, that’s exceptional enough to warrant checking a few things.

Obviously, the second sign is if you notice water where water shouldn’t be, especially on upper-floor ceilings. This could indicate you have a leaking sprinkler system if your home or business is equipped with one, or it could indicate that you have a roof leak. Generally, leaking roofs are the more likely culprit because the requirements for how a sprinkler system is installed are so rigid. If it’s the roof, you should be able to tell fairly quickly by spot-checking areas of your house like the garage, porch overhang, decks, kitchen and bathrooms, especially if you have a single-story home. This is because roof damage very rarely happens in only one place at one time, and where you find one damaged area, there are likely multiple others.

One place that many a homeowner is surprised to find out roofing damage can show up is in your sewer or septic system! Oftentimes, especially after heavy storms, precipitation that falls from the sky isn’t properly caught and redirected by your roof’s gutter system. When this happens, the stray water can get into the walls and cracks around windows, but it also soaks into the landscaping around your home and ends up in the sewer and/or septic systems. Because these systems are normally designed to accept only a limited flow, they may flood. If this happens, you could get sewage backup into your home or business bathroom, causing not only a nasty mess but forcing an expensive repair and remodel bill because of water and mold damage!

If you notice indications of roof damage, or even if you just can’t remember when your roof last had any maintenance or an inspection, it’s a good idea to get a Mooresville roofer like Ultimate Roofing out to have a look. Having the damaged areas repaired at the first sign of trouble is always better than waiting. It could save you a fortune on having your roof replaced later, and get more years of reliable service from your roof without having to worry!
