Your Roofing FAQs Answered

Investing in a new roof is a major undertaking. Like with any new project, you're going to have roofing questions. The best roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks has the answers to several of the most common roofing questions you might have. If you don't find the answers here, feel free to give us a call at 573-302-0354 with any other questions we can help you with.

1. How do I know if my roof needs to be replaced? 


More often than not, homeowners don't recognize a problem until the roof starts leaking or other serious damage has occurred. By getting a free roof inspection at the Lake of the Ozarks twice a year, issues can be discovered before the damage gets bad enough for costly repairs. Cracked, warped or missing shingles, loose seams and deteriorated flashings, excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters or downspouts are all signs that your roof could need replaced or at the least repaired. In the interior of your home, you can look for cracked paint, discolored plasterboard and peeling wallpaper as signs of a damaged roof.

2. My roof is leaking, does it need to be completely replaced? 


If you have a leak in your roof, you don't necessarily need an entirely new roof. Leaks can result from loose flashings or when the section of the roof becomes damaged. As long as the rest of the shingles are still in tact and in good condition, you will only need to have the damaged section of the roof repaired or replaced.

3. How long will my new roof last? 


Most roofing systems are designed to last 30 years. However, each roofing system is different. Some roof types, such as slate, clay tile and certain metal systems, can last longer. The longevity of your roof also depends on a number of different factors including local climate and environmental conditions, proper installation, material quality and suitability and adequate roof maintenance. Talk to your Lake of the Ozarks roofer for information about specific warranties that are available to you.

4. Can a new roof be installed over my old roof? 


While it may be cheaper, faster and require less labor, installing a new roof over your old one could cause issues down the road. We highly recommend stripping the old materials off completely, all the way down to the deck before installing the new ones. any defects, vulnerabilities and potential problems in the plywood deck or truss system will go unnoticed unless you completely remove the old materials.

5. What will a new roof cost me? 


The price of a new roofing system varies widely. The material type, the contractor doing the work, the location, labor rates and the time of the year can all affect the price of a new roofing system. To get a good idea of the price you're looking at, consider getting several different proposals from different roofing contractors. Many contractors offer free roofing estimates at the Lake of the Ozarks. Keep in mind that price should not be your only concern when it comes to getting a new roof; be sure to base your decision on price, quality of materials and workmanship. Be sure to ask for references on quality of work from that particular contractor before making your decision.

6. What type of roofing material should I use? 


Homeowners can choose from a variety of different roofing materials. At Above & Beyond Roofing, we specialize in 3-tab shingles, architectural shingles, cedar shake shingles, tile roofs, and metal roofs for both residential and commercial projects. We are dedicated to providing the best quality materials to our customers - which shows through our Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor and Weatherbond Preferred Contractor designations. Talk to your roofing contractor about your specific needs and wants to determine what roofing material would be best for you.

Keeping Animals from Intruding Your Home

When fixing up your home, animal proofing should be at the top of the list. Animals can do a lot of damage once inside your home, so it's best to just prevent them from entering in the first place. During the colder months, animals like to find shelter in warm places such as your home. The best roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks wants to make sure your roof and the rest of your home are properly maintained to keep these critters out. Here are a few common things to look for and tips you can use to keep wildlife out of your home!

Common Wildlife Problems


A few simple and inexpensive preventative measures can go a long way in avoiding conflict with animals in your home. Inspecting your home at least twice a year is a good place to start. Here are a few solutions to common wildlife issues you could experience:
  • Proper Gutter, Soffit and Fascia Board Installation
  • Window Well Covers
  • Approved Vent Covers
  • Chimney Cap 
  • Mesh Covered Attic Vents
  • Animal Stopper Garbage Cans (Bungee Corded)
  • Wooden Trash Bins with Latch 
  • Mesh Barriers for Under Decks, Sheds, Etc. (4-6 inches below ground)
  • Chicken Wire Fence for Around Gardens (4 inches below ground and out 12 inches horizontally below ground)

Repair Any Home Damage ASAP


Openings into your home are the easiest way animals can enter your residence. From a loose fascia board to a small crack near the foundation, it doesn't take much of an opening for some critters to get through. If you have any storm damage or other type of damage to your home, be sure to close up those openings immediately. Be sure to replace any loose or rotting boards. In addition, check for any gaps near window air conditioners and chimneys. However, be sure not to trap any animals that may already be inside your home. The best way to prevent trapping them inside is to loosely plug the opening with some insulation or cloth, something easily movable by the animal. After a few days check back to see if it's moved; if it hasn't, it should be safe to plug the hole permanently.

Prevent Future Damage and Entry Points


Once your home is all closed up, with no openings for animals to enter, take some steps to prevent future issues. Trim back your trees to both prevent damage and make it harder for animals to get to your roof. Overhanging tree limbs are the easiest path for squirrels and racoon to get into your attic or chimney. Both of those places make great nesting areas for these animals and you don't want them taking up residence in your home. Other common nesting sites include wood piles, rock piles, elevated sheds, openings under concrete slabs or porches, and crawl spaces under houses. Remove undergrowth and grass by mowing around buildings - this prevents hiding places for these critters.

For any issues involving your Lake of the Ozarks roof, siding, gutters, soffit or fascia, give Above & Beyond Roofing a call. We do free roof inspections at the Lake of the Ozarks and can offer a free estimate on any repairs that may need done. Give us a call today at 573-302-0354 to get started. Your home is a big investment and we want to make sure it's in proper working condition!
