The lifespan of a typical roof can last between 15 and 20 years. However, over that time it requires roof inspections to ensure it is operating properly. Having the roof inspected by Titan is a complimentary service, and will offer significant benefits to the homeowner and the home. Titan Siding and Roofing can determine if your roof requires a full replacement, or smaller repairs, to ensure it is functioning properly.

Short-term maintenance on your home’s roof can save the homeowner the high cost of a full roof replacement long before its warranty has expired. In addition, it can help save the home from structural damage that could cost a significant amount to repair. Titan Siding and Roofing can help! Part of the inspection includes looking for nails that have popped up from the roofing system. Any missing or loose nail will need to be replaced. Any missing shingle will need to be replaced also, to ensure that the home is protected from water damage. In the event that water damage has already occurred, there may be additional repairs needed to prevent any further problems.

The flashing that surrounds the chimney and other roof areas needs to be in proper working condition. As the home ages, the hot days of summer expand the caulking and other sealants. During the winter months the same caulking and sealing contracts. Over time, this can open up the area and allow water to penetrate behind the flashing, into theGutters clickable picture on main page attic, and eventually into the home. As a result, part of the repair process might require re-caulking an additional sealant around the chimney flashing and other pop-ups in the roofing system.

At some time in the future, the entire roofing system will become aged, worn-out and in need of a full replacement. At that time, Titan Siding and Roofing is the best place to call for a full replacement. If there is significant damage to the roof caused by storms, winds, or the outdoor elements, an insurance claim may be a viable option. Whatever the reason, a full replacement is a costly venture, but one that can add significant value to the home, while providing complete protection against the outside elements.

Typically, a whole roof replacement can be accomplished in one or two days, but it’s dependent on the size of the overall project. Before applying the new product, a tear off the entire existing roof coverings including shingles or tiles, and the felt below will come first. We will thoroughly inspect the roofing surface to ensure it is in proper condition, and replace any existing boards that are rotted, damaged or missing.

When it becomes time for a full replacement of the entire roofing system, it is best to seek out a competent reputable company. Part of the estimate should include the types of materials that will be used, and the extent of the warranties involved. Titan Siding and Roofing is highly qualified, carries the proper liability insurance, and will treat your home like own.
