FAQ

We get it. Any roofing project is a daunting task. Roof repairs, replacements, types of roofing – where do you start? Here at Sebastian & Sons, we pride ourselves on transparency, honesty, and being helpful. We are always happy to answer questions about your project. Below, you’ll find some of our most commonly asked questions we receive.

What Should I Look for When Hiring a Contractor?
First, you’ve got to ensure your contractor is qualified to perform the work. Check out our Choosing a Contractor Checklist for in-depth information on selecting the right contractor for your roofing job.

How Do I Know if I Need a New Roof?
If you’re noticing problems, having to make regular repairs for the same issues, and the appearance is deteriorating, it’s probably time to replace your existing roof.

How Much Will a New Roofing System Cost?
There are several factors that affect pricing: materials, design complexity, and experience of the installer. The professionalism and quality of the roofing contractor and company, roofing brands being used, grade of roofing you select, and the shape, size and slope of your roof-line are all factors that determine your project’s price.

It’s equally important to understand that the lowest bid is not always the best bid. While cost definitely is a considerable factor, it shouldn’t be the deciding factor. Quality roofing materials, licensed, experienced contractors, and quality craftsmanship will never be the lowest proposed cost – and could end up costing much more money in the long run.

What Should I Do If My Roof is Leaking?
There are steps you can take to minimize damage. Give us a call so we can guide you on the steps necessary to prevent further damage.

How Long Can a New Roof Last?
The average lifespan of a new roof is typically between 15-20 years for asphalt shingle roofs, but much longer for sturdier materials such as metal or clay. Here at Sebastian & Sons, we have perfected our roofing craft and we’re confident our roofs will last longer than the average life span.

My Roof is Missing Shingles – Will it Develop a Leak?
If your roof is missing shingles, it’s highly likely your roof will develop a leak. It’s important to call in a roofing professional to replace the missing shingles before long-term damage occurs.

Does My Homeowner’s Policy Cover a New Roof?
It depends on the type of homeowner’s insurance policy you have, as well as the extent of the damage from hail or rain. We’re able to assess the damage of your roof and provide insights and the next best steps for you.

Can a New Roof Lower My Bill?
Yes, it can! A high quality roofing job can keep your home cooler in the hot summers, and warmer in the cool winters.

Do Roof Leaks Cause Long Term Damage?
By leaving a leaky roof, your home will be vulnerable to mold growth.

Can You Install or Repair a Roof Year Round?

Do I Need to Home When You’re Working on My Roof?
