Do I need to be there for the estimate?

We can provide an estimate for any roofing project without the homeowner needing to be present. However, it is encouraged for the homeowner to be present during the estimate so that we can discuss the different options available for the project. This may include materials, colors, or types of roofing that may be more suitable for the home. G and Bros Roofing can also answer any questions the homeowner may have about the project. This can help ensure that the homeowner is comfortable with the estimate and the scope of the project.

How long is an estimate good for?

Estimates are generally valid for up to 30 days and can be used to secure financing, compare contractors, and create a budget for the roofing project. It is important to note that materials costs can increase during the 30 days and the contractor may need to adjust the estimate accordingly.

Why do I need a roof warranty?

A roof warranty is an important part of any roofing project. Architectural GAF shingles come with a lifetime warranty at no extra cost. This warranty covers both manufacturing defects and the performance of the shingles over time. It provides peace of mind that the shingles will continue to perform as expected, even when exposed to harsh weather and environmental conditions. Additionally, the warranty can provide coverage for any repairs needed due to manufacturing defects. With a roof warranty, you can ensure that your roofing project is of the highest quality and will last for years to come.

Why do I need ridge vents?

Ridge vents are a critical component of a roofing system, as they provide proper ventilation for attics and other enclosed roofing spaces. According to the 2009 IBC International Building Code, ridge vents are required for any roofing system with a pitch of 3:12 or greater. Ridge vents are installed along the ridge line of the roof and allow warm air to escape from the attic. This helps to reduce the risk of moisture buildup, which can cause damage to the roof and the building structure. Ridge vents also help to extend the life of roofing materials, as they allow heat to escape and reduce the temperature in the attic. Properly installed ridge vents are essential for a safe, well-ventilated roofing system.

How long will it take to replace my roof?

 Replacing your roof typically only takes one day for a one-story single-family home. However, the time it takes to complete the job is subject to the mercy of Mother Nature. If the weather does not cooperate, G and Bros Roofing may need to complete the job on another day. Additionally, if the roof is two stories, the roofing contractor may need to take more time to ensure the job is done properly.

Does your crew clean up before you leave?

Yes. We use a magnetic broom to pick up all the nails that made it to the grass. Our site supervisor will also conduct a thorough walk around the job site to make sure that everything is completed to our standards.

Is roof cleaning harmful to shingles?

Not at all. In fact, G and Bros Roofing recommends that homeowners do annual maintenance on their roofs to ensure that the roof lasts its proper lifespan. We recommend avoiding pressure washers and opting for a soft-wash technique instead.

Do you provide drone inspections?

Yes, we do! Not many roofing contractors in our region utilize drones for roof inspections. Homeowners love drone inspections because we’re able to instantly give you a birds-eye view of your roof and any issues going on.

What residential roofing materials do you install?

What components make up a full roofing system?

What is TPO roofing?

TPO stands for thermoplastic polyolefin, and it’s a single-ply white roofing membrane used on low-slope roofs. Since TPO is white in color, it reflects heat instead of absorbing it, which keeps the building cooler.

Do you install gutter guards?

Yes, we do! Gutter guards help protect your gutter system from clogs that can ruin your gutters. Plus, it takes the task of gutter cleaning off your to-do list.

What types of gutters can you install?

We most commonly install 5 and 6” seamless gutters, but we can also install K-style gutters and European-style gutters. 

What is OnDeck?

OnDeck is a PVC membrane that gets applied over your deck to give it the look of stone without the price or maintenance responsibilities of real stone. It also gives a waterproof protective layer to your deck.

What should I consider when selecting a roofing contractor for my claim?

When choosing a roofing contractor to handle your insurance claim, it is crucial to check that they hold the appropriate license, bonding, and insurance that meet the requirements of your state. Factor in their experience within the local area, credentials that have been confirmed through verification processes, and their adoption of current technology.

Why you should call a roofer before your insurance company?

Before contacting your insurance company, it’s advisable to engage a roofing professional as they can conduct a comprehensive and precise examination of the roof. This ensures that even hidden issues are identified which might be overlooked by insurance adjusters, thereby averting additional damage to the roof.
