Roof Replacement

How do I know if my roof needs replacement or just repairs?

he cost of a roof replacement varies depending on factors such as the size and pitch of the roof, the chosen materials, and any additional features or upgrades. On average, homeowners can expect to pay between $5,000 to $15,000 or more for a standard residential roof replacement.

Can a roofing substitute be implemented while a new roof covering is being installed?

Yes, it is possible to install a roofing substitute, commonly known as roofing underlayment, before installing a new roof covering. Roofing underlayment serves as a secondary barrier against water infiltration and helps to protect the roof deck during the installation process and between the time of removing the old roof covering and installing the new one. It provides temporary protection against leaks until the new roof covering can be installed.

There are different types of roofing underlayment available, such as asphalt-saturated felt, synthetic materials like synthetic underlayment, and rubberized asphalt membranes. The choice of underlayment depends on factors such as climate, roof slope, and local building codes.

Storm Damage

How much damage does a roof need to be replaced?

When a replacement is justified, they will conduct a test square of 10′ by 10′. Each carrier has a separate requirement for the number of hail hits in the test square. On average, it ranges from 7 to 10 hits. These hail-related factors are determined by the roof’s age and pitch.

What is the average cost of a roof replacement?

On average, homeowners can expect to invest anywhere from $5,000 to $15,000 or more. Factors like the complexity of the roof design, choice of premium materials, and additional features like skylights can influence the final cost.

What does wind damage look like on a roof?

Wind damage to a roof can be identified by loose or missing shingles, chimney difficulties, curling or peeling shingles, granule loss, damaged soffit or fascia, and inside leaks. High winds can also cause tree limbs to fall and harm the roof. Wind, like hail, can induce granule loss (the sandpaper-like component of the shingle).

Is it better to patch or replace roof?

Repairing the isolated damage repeatedly is likely to cost more in the long term than upgrading to a higher quality roof. Replacing missing shingles, or patching an area with missing or damaged shingles, is the least expensive repair alternative.

How often should I schedule a roofing inspection with SWAT Pro Roofing?

The frequency of roofing inspections depends on various factors such as the age of your roof, weather conditions in your area, and any recent maintenance or repairs.

What are the potential consequences of neglecting hail damage repairs?

Neglecting hail damage repairs can lead to several potential consequences for your roof and property. Firstly, hail damage weakens the structural integrity of your roof, making it more susceptible to leaks and further deterioration over time. These leaks can result in water intrusion, leading to mold growth, rotting of wood structures, and damage to your property’s interior, including ceilings, walls, and insulation.

What are the common signs of storm damage that homeowners should look out for?

Common signs of storm damage include cracked or missing shingles, dents on metal surfaces, water stains on ceilings, and granule buildup in gutters.

Was recommended SWAT from a family member that used this company for a roof (extremely pleased) when I asked about gutters. SWAT came out and gave me options and worked within the vision I had on where I felt like I needed them the most. Wasn’t pushy at all and was able to accomplish exactly what I wanted.

This company is phenomenal! We had a roof replaced by another roofing company and were looking for someone to come out and verify the work completed. I reached out to several roofers, most of which did not even respond. Michelle SWAT Pro Services reached out immediately and offered to send Travis to inspect the roof the next day FOR FREE. Travis completed a thorough inspection, called me to walk me through all of the details, and even offered to send over a detailed report. Both Michelle and Travis stayed in great communication the entire time and went above and beyond for a free task. I highly would recommend them!

I am never using another company for my roofing needs. They were able to work with a difficult insurance company and completed my roof in a timely manner. Would give 6 stars if I could!

I can’t say enough about SWAT. Starting with the Owner being hands on and the help from Michelle. My insurance denied my claim from the June hail storm and they helped me finally get a new roof. Because of this I used them on another roof at one of my properties last Friday and I’ve also used their AC service at my office when it went out in this 100+ degree weather. Each and every time they were on it and got the job done when they said they would. Thanks

Could not be happier with our new roof and gutters. Samuel was excellent to work with. The team was very professional and very fast. One day install on the roof on a 3000 sq. ft. house. Gutter install and interior water damage repairs the next day. Interior repairs were perfectly paint matched and the gentleman that performed them was so polite. Extremely happy with the entire crew. Would highly recommend this company for roofing, gutters and general contracting. Absolutely outstanding work!

I can't say enough great things about this company and my experience! Clay Jackson was my representative and went above and beyond for me the whole time. He made the whole process easy and was always available if I had any questions. Clay went above and beyond for me with my insurance company. Once we settled with the insurance SWAT had me scheduled within a week. The roof is spectacular. I could not be happier with the professionalism and service received. I also had water damage to a wall that they were able to repair and paint. With all the roofing companies out there you it's hard to know who to trust. I am very happy I went with SWAT and Clay Jackson. I will recommend SWAT to everyone I know.
