FAQ'S About Roofing

If you are having problems with your roof and/or roof installation please make sure you consult a licensed Sacramento roofing contractor to get a professional opinion before you make a vast and expensive decision that you later regret.

 

How can I tell if I need a new roof or a roof repair?

Generally, if the roof contractor installed the roof system correctly and is in good shape it can almost always be repaired. Leaking roofs can result from a minor issue that includes missing or loose roofing material. However, if the roof was installed improperly the roof failure is generally irreversible. For your sanity, make sure that the roofing contractor or company you chose is legit and can guarantee their work that they perform on your house and/or business.

How do I recognize if
a roof has problems?

Problems that occur with a roof are, most often, discovered after a leak is visible or serious damage has already taken its course. To protect your investment it is wise to do and/or have a roof inspection done by a local licensed roofing contractor every year. Miller Roofing Services performs routine roof inspections and/or estimates that will advise you on the current condition or your roof. Having your roof inspected will ensure that elements of the roof are not missing, warn, or damaged. If there are roofing materials that may need to be fixed and/or replaced it is better to catch it quickly. Catching a roof leak sooner rather then later will probably result in a minor repair to your roof, rather then a complete roof replacement. The physical outdoor signs that occur are cracked shingles, warn shingles, missing shingles. The physical indoor signs that a roof may be damaged are cracked paint, discolored area of a wall/ceiling, and peeling wall paper.

How will a new roof look on my home?

A new roof system is one of the best ways to improve the visual appeal and market value of your home. Being Sacramento's top roofing contractor, Miller Roofing Services takes pride in the quality of our work that we deliver and make sure that the residential and/or commercial customer is completely satisfied with the product and services we have provided.

What are my options if I decided to re-roof?

If you should decide to reroof, you can choose to tear off the existing roof before installing the new roof system. Or, the second choice would be to install the new roof system over the existing roof. Typically the second option should only be done if there is currently only one roof on your home. If you have already done a over-existing reroof, then you run into the issues of the weight your roof deck can support. Please consult your local licensed roofing contractor before making this decision with a person and/or business you feel unsure about.

How to prepare for the installation of my new roof?

Remove all loose items from walls and shelves. The constant hammering may cause enough vibration to shake these items down. Make sure to clear your driveway and items directly surrounding your home. Also, please see that electrical power is provided to the outside of your home. If exterior plugs are not available, please run an extension cord through a window or door. Any professional roofing contractor and/or company will ensure that your garage and pool is tarped, if you specify, and all extra material from the roof installation is cleaned up and disposed of properly.

What type of warranty do you offer?

Depending on the type of shingles you purchase, a roofing warranty can last from 10 to 30 years. Miller Roofing Services guarantees the Roofing material workmanship against leaks for a period of (6) Six years used on the structure (house, garage, partial roof, patio, etc.)
