Fall is upon us with winter fast on its heels. But have no fear, for SPC Construction and Roofing is here to answer all of your seasonal residential roof questions for the rest of 2018 and even beyond into winter.
Whenis the best season to replace a roof?
How do you know if your roof has problems?
What even are your options when looking to re-roof?
How long to roof repairs take?
It can be difficult to know where to turn, who to ask or even what to ask. That’s why we at SPC Construction and Roofing have compiled some great FASQs (frequently asked seasonal questions) about residential roofs that may concern you.
The life span of your roof depends on a lot of factors like the type of roof you have, climate, and maintenance, of course.
However,we at SPC Construction and Roofing have vast past experience to help find the answer. Here is our breakdown on the average length of time you can expect your roof to last:
Asphalt shingles – 15 to 20 years
Clay or Concrete – minimum of 20 years
Slate roofing – from 30 up to 100 years
Metal roofing – 15 to 40 years, sometimes even longer
Wood shingles – 10 to 40 years (variation depends on climate and maintenance practices)
Usually, you won’t know about a problem until it’s too late and showing costly symptoms.One way to beat this is to have regular checks of your residential roof, or ‘health checks’.
SPC Construction and Roofing will happily come to your residence and take a bird’s eye view of your home’s roof. Then we will meet with you about any and all possible issues.
Remember, the best medicine is preventative, and that goes for your roof too.
This depends on your area, as there are some ordinances that limit how many times you can re-cover your oldest roof.

Most likely – no! Sometimes a leak is just a leak, and sometimes it’s more.
Seem vague? Unfortunately, we can’t know how big the problem is until we see it.
SPC Construction and Roofing offers free, drone-driven inspections that can help solve the sneaky problem.
So, don’t keep wondering how big of an issue your leak is,come into SPC and let us settle the matter before it becomes a monster.
Again, this depends on the severity of your roof repairs.
Is ita minor fix? Maybe the timeline will only be an hour or so. Is it a full residential roof replacement in the mountains of a 15-bedroom mansion? Well, it might take a few days more than the usual then.
However, if we are going with averages of what we at SPC Construction and Roofing have experienced, then a major roof replacement can generally take up to a few days.
The weather and climate have a huge impact on this timeline as well. So, keep in mind that Mother Nature has the final say in how long your residential roof lasts, and how long it will take to be replaced.
Surprising to some, fall is actually the best season to replace your roof.
Why, you might ask?
Because of the ideal weather, great preparation for winter and potential energy savings, of course.
A one-stop roof maintenance weekend might be just what your house needs. We can get the gutters clean, the roof repaired or replaced, and your energy costs down all in time for the bitter wind and snowflakes.
