Frequently Asked Roofing Questions

Roofing San Diego FAQ

When you are undergoing a roof replacement or just doing some routine maintenance, you might have a few questions. The process can seem complicated at times, and every roofing situation is unique. However, there are a few common questions that we can answer about working with Preman Roofing, the premier professional roofer in San Diego:

How will I know if my home needs a roof repair?

There are a few different ways that you can tell if your roof needs maintenance, repairs or replacing. Most of the time, unfortunately, roofing issue are only discovered after a serious leak or other damage has occurred. To avoid this situation, you should have your roof inspected by a professional about twice a year. That way, you can discover any cracks, holes, damaged shingles, deteriorated flashings, and more before they turn into a huge problem. Alternatively, there are a few signs indoors that can indicate your roof needs some TLC: cracked paint, discolored plasterboard and peeling wallpaper.

Are there different options for a roof replacement?

Yes, there are two options for having your roof replaced. First, you can choose to have a complete replacement of your roof. This involves tearing off your existing roof system and replacing it with a new one. The second option is to re-cover your existing roof system. This works by just replacing the old roofing system with a new one. If you are wondering which one is right for you, Preman Roofing can always provide their expert opinion. Also, many cities only allow one re-cover before your roof needs to be completely replaced.

What should I do if my roof leaks?

Most of the time, a leaking roof will not need a complete replacement. Leaks can happen for a few different reasons, like flashings that have come loose or damaged. In those cases, you will just need to replace the damaged roof element. If you do need your entire roof replaced, it might be because of improper installation or the wrong choice of materials.

How much will it cost to replace my roof?

Depending on your situation, the cost of your roof will vary. The materials you select, the quality of the roof contractor, the type of house, location of the house and the time of year will all influence the cost of your roof replacement. It’s good to keep in mind when replacing your roof that price is only one factor. It should be balanced with the quality of the roofing contractor and the building materials.

Should I be home when the roof workmen are at my home?

Being home while workers are at your home is not necessary. Once Preman Roofing initiates contact, you do not need to be at your home while the workmen are there unless you want to. Each job is supervised from start to finish by a field supervisor and a foreman. The quality of your work is very important to us, so we provide expert service from start to finish.

Do you do any other services besides roofing, like painting or woodwork?

We do other services as it relates to your roof. So, if you need painting as part of your roofing job, we are happy to provide that. The same goes for woodworking.
