Owning a home and keeping a roof over your head are synonymous ventures–but even the best roofs don’t last forever. On average, a roof will last for about 20 to 25 years before it needs to be re-shingled. If your roof is in need of maintenance, you’ll want the best contractors for the job. With over 50 years in the roofing and home improvement business, Berg Home Improvements roofing experts have the know-how to handle your Downers Grove home with precision and care.
If you aren’t sure when your roof was last reshingled, it can be difficult to know when exactly to replace it. However, a good first sign that you should begin contemplating a new roof is if your neighbors are getting theirs done. Because housing developments are normally built within a relatively short time span, there is a good chance that your neighbor’s home was built around the same time as yours, and its roof is just as old.
However, there are other, physical signs to consider as well. If your shingles are starting to crack, curl, or come loose, it is a sign that you’re in need of a new roof. You might even see shingles loose in your yard after a storm, or see an excess of grit in your gutter.
Getting your roof reshingled all starts with a free estimate from Berg Home Improvements. Our experts understand the importance of roofing as a multilayered job, so that your home stays water-tight for many years to come.
From there, our experts will begin all of the necessary steps to do a thorough job in reshingling your roof. It starts with removing the original shingles. Then, roofers will nail down any loose sheathing below and lay down a new layer of underlayment. From there, reshingling can begin.
While it is possible to reshingle a roof on your own, it is not recommended. Reshingling is a difficult and time-consuming task. Without safety precautions and proper training, it can even be dangerous.
Before getting a roof replaced, there’s a few simple preparations that you may wish to consider taking. First of all, choose a time to get your roof re-done when you will not have a particular need for a quiet space. For the same reason, you’ll want to give your family plenty of warning so that they can prepare themselves.
When roofers arrive, they’ll need to use the outdoor power outlets, so give yourself a good idea of where they are. It can be a good idea to move cars and patio furniture that are especially close to the house.
When it’s time to get a new roof, it’s important that you make the right choice for who to entrust with the job.
