Roofing Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Need To Replace My Entire Roof If I Find a Leak?

Not always. A Leaky roof can be a result of flashings that have become loose or a section of the roof has been damaged. However, a total roof failure is generally irreversible and results from improper installation or choice of materials. Make sure to contact roofing contractor who will come out and properly diagnose whether the situation needs immediate repair or not. At Armor Xteriors we will always be honest about whether work needs to be done, and if a total roof needs to be installed, we will work with you to get the financing that fits your budget.

Do I Have To Tear Off My Old Roof?

Most roofing material manufacturers consider it best practice to tear off all old roofing if possible in order to inspect the decking underneath. Depending on what materials were used in the old layers of roofing, it is sometimes impossible to install a new roof over the old. The appearance would be less than acceptable.

How Long Can I Expect My Roof To Last?

The condition and lifespan of your roof heavily depends on the type of roof you choose, weather, and maintenance which your roof has received. Roofing manufacturers offer a variety of warranties on their products, so take a look at the warranties on their products to see what responsibilities and financial obligations they will assume if their products fail to reach their expected lifetime
