they start to leak. At that point, the house roof becomes the most important item for the day. You are looking
to find a roofer right away. That's when you call Roofing Anniston, your roofing contractors of choice. Some
homeowners even call before the leak settles in because they know it's coming.
Roofing is not a particularly difficult activity in theory, but can be a nightmare in
practice, if you don't know what you are doing. The challenge to an amateur roofer, that a professional roofer does
not face, is that he can be in trouble from the outset, when the error doesn't begin to surface until the job is
well underway. Then, the only course of action is to tear down and start again. This is all avoidable when you hire
a competent roofing company.

Should you be in the market for a new roof? Tips on diagnosing common roof problems:
Roof leaks: That's a great way to confirm a problem. That's a good sign that and older roof
needs replacing. How about storm damage. It seems like every year at least part of our area undergoes seasonal
damage from hail and high winds. Assuming the damage isn't obvious, as in puddles on the living room floor, first,
inspect your roof from the ground using a pair of binoculars. For your own safety, leave climbing onto your roof to
a professional. Here's what to look for...
Curled Up Shingles: This can allow rain to get in, and the shingles are easily damaged by wind.
Worn-off Granules: Granules protect the shingle from sunlight and water. If they're worn off,
the shingle will deteriorate. Look for granules in your gutters and by your downspouts. You may see dark spots on
shingles where granules are missing.
Loose Or Missing Shingles: This can cause leakage.
Cracked Shingles: A common cause of a roof leak. (Nail pops, which are small holes where nails
have popped through the shingle, can cause leakage.)
Spots On Your Interior Ceiling: May indicate that the roof is leaking and in need of roof
Black Or Green Streaks: Algae can discolor your roof and make it look ugly. You may not need to
replace your roof, but you should remove those stains with proper roof
Age Of Roof: Depending on the quality, most shingles last 10-25 years. If your home is the same
age as others in the neighborhood that are getting new roof replacement work, it
may be time to replace yours too.
After your walkabout, and damage is discovered, we know for a fact that you'll be there
thinking, "Should I just go ahead and call Roofing Anniston?" The answer should be YES. Call us. We're happy to
come out for a professional diagnosis.
A word of roofing warning...
Whether you use Roofing Anniston or some other company, be advised that even with the best
prices possible, a new roof will be relatively costly. A roof is a ten to twenty year investment. To prevent peril
and everlasting regret, you must choose a professional licensed, bonded, and insured roofer of good reputation.
When it comes to your roof, it is the worst time possible to be frugal and cut corners with a johnny-come-lately.
The smart course of action is to hire the best and most professional roofing company in Anniston to start with, and
that is, of course, Roofing Anniston. In the long run, when you do so, you'll never have a moment's second guess or
sadness. It may sound corny, but it's true.
Roofing Anniston FAQ
A new roof is a major investment for homeowners, and choosing an experienced contractor to
install it is the best way to protect your assets.
Replacement or re-roofing is usually required on shingles that are over 20 years old simply
because of the age of the roofing materials. Consideration should be given to the underlayment, ventilation and
insulation because together these elements play an essential role in preventing heat and moisture build-up from
damaging the roofing structure and materials. You should also give careful thought to choosing an effective gutter
guard system that protects gutters from clogging. A reputable roofer will make sure that all of these components
work together to prolong the life of your roof.
Q. What are other ways I know if I need a new roof?
A. While leaks are an obvious clue that your roof needs attention, the condition of the shingles will
determine whether a repair or replacement roof is appropriate. When worn out, shingles sometimes curl, warp or lose
granules and may have missing or damaged shingle tabs. Pay particular attention to any visible signs inside your
home such as discoloration spots on the wall, loose wallpaper, peeling paint on the ceiling and drips.
Q. If a new roof is necessary, do I have any options?
A. Roofing Anniston recommends a complete removal of the old roof system for homeowners seeking a
replacement roof. While it is possible to re-roof or re-cover existing shingles with a new roof if there is only
one layer, possible dry rot underneath the first layer would remain undetected. In addition, placing a new layer of
shingles over aging shingles may give the roof an uneven appearance. During the initial “tear-off” of the old roof,
we will inspect the existing decking materials for dry rot and advise you on the work required to correct the
Q. What will the estimator look for when inspecting the roof of my home?
A. Roofing Anniston estimators inspect the roof covering, the drainage systems, the flashing (around
skylights, chimneys, vent pipes), the ventilation systems, and the roof's rafters and trusses (if access to the
attic is available). See roof diagram.
Q. How long will a new roof last?
A. The lifetime of a roof depends on several factors including its exposure to natural elements such as
sun, rain, humidity, wind, snow and ice. These conditions will eventually age the roofing components. If you have a
few roof shingles that are damaged or missing this can have a cascading effect of weakening adjacent shingles,
shortening the lifetime of the roof. Clogged gutters also pose major problems to roofing components. Gutters that
do not drain properly will allow rain water to flow back onto the roof underneath good shingles possibly rotting
the decking. Overflowing gutters will eventually cause problems along the fascia such as paint peeling, mildew and
Inadequate roof ventilation and insulation can also reduce the lifetime of roofing components.
Without sufficient attic ventilation, extreme temperature variations between the attic of the home and the outdoors
will cause an expansion and contraction of roofing components which may rub granules off shingles and cause the
shingles to curl.
Depending on the selection of roofing components, new roofs are given a 25-year to
limited-lifetime manufacturer's warranty. EPDM (rubber) roofs have a manufacturer's warranty of 10 years. In
general, the validity of a manufacturer's warranty is determined by the manufacturer's specified roofing components
which must be installed together, and they include: the eave guard membrane, felt underlayment, shingles and roof
ventilation system. You must choose an approved applicator who is certified to install materials according to
manufacturer roofing guidelines in order to meet the requirements of their warranty.
Q. Are estimates free?
A. Yes. Please call us here at Roofing Anniston to schedule an
appointment with one of our experienced estimators. After our inspection, we will provide you with a written
proposal detailing our findings, options and cost.
Q. Do you provide roof inspections for home sellers or buyers?
A. Yes. Roofing Anniston will inspect the roof and write a letter reporting the current condition of the
roof and if any repairs are required. Please note that there is no warranty with this letter of inspection.
Q. Can a new roof lower my energy bills?
A. A properly insulated attic and a well-ventilated roof will help you reduce heat loss and moisture
condensation in the winter and heat retention in the summer enabling you to conserve energy. Adequate ventilation
and insulation in your attic will also help reduce the possibility of ice dams from occurring caused by uneven roof
temperatures and melting snow.
Q. What happens when the roofing materials are delivered to my home?
A. Approximately 2 days before your job is to begin, the roofing material will be delivered to your home
and loaded on the roof. If there are power lines, tree branches or other obstacles blocking delivery, the roofing
material will be unloaded in your driveway. We do request that you keep the driveway clear on the day the roofing
material is to be delivered.
Q. What preparation do I need to make inside my home before the work begins?
A. Please make sure that any valuable items are covered in your attic because a certain amount of saw dust
and debris will unavoidably fall. If we are removing skylights, please make sure a drop cloth is placed under the
opening to catch any falling debris. There will be vibrations during a roofing job so it is recommended that
ceiling fixtures are protected and that all pictures and other items of value are removed from the walls. If you
need assistance, please be sure to ask us before the project begins.
Q. Will you protect the garden and shrubs around my home?
A. Roofing Anniston takes every precaution to ensure that the home and surrounding areas are protected
during the roof installation process. Please mark any underground sprinkler heads and make sure outdoor furniture
is protected and barbecue equipment is covered. We would be happy to assist in moving any items that you would like
Q. Do I have to be home during the roofing project?
A. Not unless you want to. Roofing is a noisy, messy project, but when we are through, you should not be
able to tell we were there. If you have children, please make sure they remain inside during the installation. If
you have pets, please keep them indoors. After the completion of the job, your property will be raked and a nail
magnet will be used to pick up any debris. After the first rain, you will probably see shingle granules that wash
out through the gutters which is a natural process. Nails may also wash out through the gutters so it is a good
idea to check your yard for debris that may not have been visible to the roofers at the time the job was
Q. Suppose after all is done, I develop a leak?
A. Emergency Response – An Aggressive repair department allows roof emergences to be rectified quickly and
