The durability and maintenance of your roof will affect the health of your home for years to come. It can be tough to tell if your roof needs repairs or even replaced. To help you out, here are some of the most common questions we get as a roofing contractor Idaho Falls.
What does it cost for a new roof?
Each house and roofing contractor Idaho Falls project are unique so the cost will vary. Some factors that will impact the cost include the state of the roof, what materials you decide on and the total size of the project. Give us a call or contact us here for more information or to schedule a free roof evaluation and inspection.
When do shingles need to be replaced?
Eventually, shingles will turn brittle and flaky. Once this happens, they will not be as effective as they once were. You’ll know that your roof is on its last legs and needs to be replaced when there is a significant amount of moisture that is not being redirected away from the siding and foundation of your home.
Can I have just part of my roof replaced?
Yes. With roofing Idaho Falls, there are many times that just a small area of your roof will need to be replaced. This option can save you some money for a repair cost while also preventing water damage that may lead to more financial losses.
What are leaf guards?
Leaf guards cover the opening at the top of the gutter that can get clogged with debris. This makes your system more efficient, leading years of use with minimal cost for roofing Idaho Falls maintenance.
How long will it take to replace or install a new roof?
This may vary due to a number of factors, but most roofing Idaho Falls projects will take 2-3 days.
Why is my roof leaking? It isn’t even old.
Even a perfectly installed roof can have a leak. Leaks may be caused by large storms, strong winds, animals like birds or squirrels or general deterioration. Another issue that can become a problem is moss. Moss can cause the deterioration of shingles if it is not taken care of.

How often should a roof be cleaned and inspected?
We recommend a unique approach for each roof because they are all different. However, it is good practice for every roof to be checked for warning signs that have the potential to be a problem. Things to be looking for include growing moss, loose or missing shingles, leaking water and animal or pest infestations. Feel free to contact us for a free consultation.
Can I just clean my own roof?
Sure. It’s your roof so you can if you choose to. However, going up on the roof is sometimes dangerous and many homeowners regret trying to do it themselves. Every year there are thousands of homeowners that get hurt while working on their roof. We also recommend using our trained professionals because we can often recognize roofing problems before they are noticeable to the untrained eye. This way we can stop leaks before the start!
