The state of your roof is important to the overall structure and efficiency of your home, but not everyone has the training to recognize problems when they see them. This is why our team of Fort Worth roofers at HG Contractors, Inc. have assembled several questions we are often asked to help point you in the right direction.

  • How do I know if I need a new roof?

    Depending on the quality of your roof and what it is made of, its overall lifespan can range anywhere between 15 and 30 years. Exposure to harsh weather and poor ventilation can shorten this lifespan considerably. Generally, a good rule of thumb is that if your roof is older than 12 years old, it may be time to bring someone in to check on it.

    Just a few of the warning signs that you may need significant repairs or replacement on your roof include:

    • “Bald spots” or loss of asphalt granulation
    • Curling shingles
    • Evidence of leaking, such as cracks or discoloration, in your ceilings or interior walls
    • Missing shingles
    • Decayed shingles
    • Damaged shingles
    • Visible cracks
    • Missing or damaged flashing
  • My roof is leaking. Do I need to replace the whole thing?

    Not necessarily! If the problem is confined to a fairly small space, we can repair the damaged area and save you the cost of a full replacement. However, if the issues stem from shoddy installation or sub-par materials, it may be more cost-effective in the long run to handle the problems all at once.

  • Can I take care of the repairs myself?

    We would not recommend it – roofing can be dangerous when done without training, and is generally not considered a DIY project. Our team has 20 years of experience handling these tasks safely. What the average homeowner can and should do, however, is be aware of the state of your roof and act decisively when issues present themselves.

  • How much does a new roof cost in Dallas/Fort Worth?

    Multiple factors will influence the cost of your new roof, including the size, shape, and slope of your roof, the type and grade of the materials you choose, and the quality and professionalism of your roofing contractor. With that being said, it is important you do not choose a roofing contractor solely based on cost. Hiring the cheapest roofer at the cost of quality could end up costing you far more in the long run when you consider the added expense of repairing shoddy workmanship and the damage it can cause.

  • What is the difference between a reroof and a complete tear-off?

    Generally speaking, when it is time for a new roof, you have two options: replacing your roof involving a full tear-off of the existing shingles and underlayment, or re-covering your existing roof system with new shingles, otherwise known as a "reroof." While reroofing has a cheaper upfront cost and can be completed in a shorter period of time, it is mainly cosmetic and can cause you to miss damage that may exist beneath the surface. Additionally, most municipal building codes prohibit the installation of more than two layers of shingles on your building's roof as the weight can weaken its structural integrity. Our knowledgeable roofers can provide you with an honest assessment of the condition of your roof and help you choose an option that is best for you.

  • How often should I have my roof inspected?
    The National Roofing Contractors Association recommends that you have your roof inspected by a professional once per year, in addition to bi-annual self-checks. It is best to check your roof before and after the season in which your roof is subjected to the harshest weather, which is the summer in the Dallas/Fort Worth region. Regular inspections and maintenance can help you to identify and remedy roofing issues before they escalate into large-scale problems, saving you money and extending the life of your roof.
