You should have your roof checked for drying and cracking if the roof is between 20 and 25 years old. Most shingles on the market today have a minimum 25-year warranty. Roofs wear differently depending on these factors: how steep your roof is and how much direct sunlight your roof receives. Having your roof checked sooner rather than later is best and may save you money.
There are many different kinds of asphalt shingles on the market today and Dick’s Roofing uses only the highest quality materials available. Some of the most widely popular shingles are the Owens Corning Oakridge or Duration lines. Please call Dick’s Roofing to see our large variety of samples. We also offer synthetic slate/shingles, cedar and metal roofing.
Many roof leaks come from the chimney area. Most of the leaks are a result of flashings pulling away from the chimney. In most cases, this can be fixed by applying rubber silicone to the chimney flashing. In other cases, the flashings may need to be replaced.
The valley is the most important area needing complete protection on a roof. And, in most cases, the valley is the first area on a roof to wear out because of the amount of water passing over it. Some valleys may leak because they have been installed incorrectly. With regard to repair, some valleys can be replaced without having to replace the entire roof. However, with some valleys that are leaking, it may be a sign that your whole roof will need to be replaced. Please call Dick’s Roofing for an expert assessment.
The State of Wisconsin allows only two layers of shingles on a home. If your home has two or more layers on it, you will need to have a tear-off. Dick’s Roofing can give you a few different options of tearing off. In some cases, you can remove just one layer of roofing depending on the condition of the shingles. Give Dick’s Roofing a call for an expert opinion.
Dick’s Roofing can remove all wood shakes and install new 1/2″ plywood to the roof surface. When removing wood shakes, new chimney flashings and gutter flashings will, most often, need to be replaced as well.
In most cases, your brand-new roof should be completed within two days. This depends on the size of the job. When we begin a roof job, we continue to work on that same job until it is finished. We believe in finishing the work we have started before we begin our next roofing project.
We do not require any money down on most projects. Once the project is completed, we will send you a bill. We want to ensure you are completely happy with the work before we require payment! The only time we require a deposit is for custom window orders.
