For some, a home is little more than a “roof over your head”, but even at its most fundamental components, a house needs a roof. If your roof is looking a little worse for wear, then it may be time to have it replaced. We’re proud to serve the communities of Catonsville, Elicott City, Eldersburg, and other areas with top of the line Remodeling Services in Maryland.
The Dangers of a Damaged Roof
The primary function of the roof is to protect your home and everything within from the elements. Rain, snow, wind, and other natural events can lead to all sorts of problems including the roof collapsing in extreme cases.
How Does a Roof Collapse?
Moisture is the enemy of a home’s integrity. As it worms its way into your walls, it leads to rotting, mold, and eventually, a complete breakdown. This can happen anywhere in your home, but when it happens in your roof, the wood and other materials within can start to sag, and then it will collapse.
Do I Need Replacement if My Roof is Leaking?
The simple answer to this question is “maybe”. Though one or two leaks throughout the roof may not be a big deal, it’s takes an expert’s eye to determine whether or not your leaks are serious enough for a complete roof replacement. Not only that, but leaks aren’t necessarily the only factor that will determine whether or not your roof needs to be replaced. The roof’s type and age will also determine our recommendation.
How Long Does a Roof Replacement Take?
There are several factors that might affect how long a roof replacement will take. The type of roof you’re looking for, the shape of your home, the weather, and even the time of year can all affect the project’s length. We want to make sure that your project goes off without a hitch, but we also need to make sure that our crew is safe while they’re performing their work. Just know that we’re handling this as promptly as we can. Diligence is the hallmark of quality for Maryland Remodeling Contractors.
