What Do I Do When My Roof Is Being Replaced?

You might be wondering how your life will be disrupted when your roof needs replacement and the roofing crew arrives. You won’t need to move into a hotel or ship the kids off to the extended family. For the average single-family home, a roof replacement job can be done within a week, some often in just a few days. There will be some disruption of your normal routine, but nothing worth leaving home for. The exception might be if you work out of a home office.

New Year, New Roof?

If your home was built before 1995, chances are you need a new roof. If you live in a much older home and your roof is say, 25 years old – a roof inspection is in order. Even though Marin contains various micro-climates that can age a roof differently, most roofing materials won’t last much more than 20 – 25 years, no matter what your roofer might have told you.
