Frequently Asked Questions: Roofing

Your roofing is one of the most impactful factors when it comes to your Kansas home’s curb appeal and protection from rain and snow. Plus, a high-quality roof will improve your home’s energy efficiency and potentially lower your energy bills. If you want to ensure your roof is in top condition with a roof replacement or repair, All States Home Improvement can help with a list of frequently asked questions we receive from our customers.

How often should I replace my roof?

Assuming your roof is installed by a skilled contractor with top-quality materials, you can typically expect a new roof to last approximately 30 or more years. However, inclement weather can dramatically reduce a roof’s lifespan.

How do I know if I need a new roof?

Aside from calling us for a consultation, here’s what you can check yourself to determine if you need a new roof:

  • Look in the attic for leaks or water damage.
  • Check your shingles for damage, missing granules, or bare patches.
  • Survey the gutters for granules from your shingles.
  • Inspect your roof valleys for cracks, holes, or water damage.
  • Check for loose or cracked flashing.
  • Assess mold, moss, or black streaks.
  • Check your paperwork to determine when your roof was last replaced.

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

While repairs may suffice for minor issues, extensive damage or an aging roof may warrant a replacement. Our expert team at All States Home Improvement conducts thorough assessments to determine the most cost-effective and long-lasting solution for your specific situation.

What is Shingle Magic and when is it recommended?

Shingle Magic is a cost-effective alternative to full roof replacement. It’s a specialized coating that enhances the durability of your existing roof and provides protection against elements like hail and wind. It’s recommended when a full replacement isn’t immediately necessary, offering a budget-friendly solution to extend your roof’s lifespan.

Do I need to replace my roof after a hailstorm?

Not all hail is destructive. However, don’t assume your roof didn’t sustain substantial damage during even a mild storm. When in doubt, it’s best to give us a call for a free inspection to determine whether your roof needs repairs or replacement.

Is storm damage covered by insurance?

Storm damage is often covered by insurance. However, the extent of coverage may vary. It’s essential to take proper steps after a storm, including documenting the damage, taking photographs, and contacting your insurance provider promptly. Our team at All States Home Improvement can assist you throughout the insurance claims process.

What materials do you offer for roof replacement?

We provide a diverse range of high-quality materials, including shake shingles, synthetic slate tiles, and asphalt shingles. Each material comes with unique benefits, and our specialists can guide you in choosing the option that best suits your preferences and the Kansas climate.

How should I prepare for a new roof installation?

Consider the following steps before your new roof installation to make the process quick and painless:

  • Give your landscaping a once-over. Cut your grass and trim any trees hanging closely over your roof.
  • Move all non-permanent items from your home’s perimeter to allow installers easy access to your roof.
  • Remove valuable items from your interior walls to prevent them from falling during installation.

How long will roof installation take?

Most roof installations take just a few days. However, depending on the size and difficulty of your project, it could last up to three to four days. Contributing factors in installation length include inclement weather, unexpected issues like mold or water damage, or abnormally intricate roof designs. If your roof installation takes longer than a day, our team will organize the debris and tools throughout the day and tarp off any exposed roof areas.

How much will a new roof cost?

As with many home improvement projects, the price will vary greatly depending on the size of the job and the type of materials used. The best way to answer this question is to contact us for a consultation. Our team will evaluate your homes’ needs, go over roofing options, and offer solutions to fit your budget. We also offer financing options with payments starting at $98 per month.

Should I replace my roof before I sell my house?

If your roof is in disrepair or old, you will have a much easier time selling your home at an agreeable price and promptly if you replace your roof before listing. Most buyers aren’t willing to take on a home that needs major repairs, so it’s worth your time and money to ensure it is in top shape before you put it on the market. A new roof is a wonderful home improvement project that often has more than a 60% return on investment.

What warranties do you offer for roof replacement?

We stand behind the quality of our work. All States Home Improvement provides comprehensive product and labor warranties, giving you peace of mind knowing that your investment is protected.
