From roof inspections, replacement, and general maintenance, knowing how to care for your roof likely does not come naturally. Today, our Lake of the Ozarks roofing company has outlined a few Frequently Asked Questions about roofing! Check it out to learn more! 

1) How Do I Know What Type of Shingle is Best?

There are many factors that come into play when are thinking about which shingle is best. Finances, aesthetics, and climate all come into play when determining which roofing shingle is "best." At Above & Beyond Roofing, we install a variety of different materials and can help you, the homeowner, choose what's best for your unique situation, taking into account your budget, what your house looks like and what you're trying to accomplish.

2) How Much Does a New Roof Cost?

Several factors are used to determine the cost of a new roof. The type of roofing material you choose for your roof will be a large determining factor. For example, asphalt shingles are less expensive than metal roofing. The physical costs aren't the only thing you should be concerned with though. Keep in mind the saying, "you get what you pay for." The size and shape of your roof also come into consideration when determining the price of your new roof. For a free roofing estimate at the Lake of the Ozarks, give us a call at 573-302-0354.

3) How Do I Know if I Need a New Roof?

Roofs are designed to last a long time if they're properly taken care of, and it can be difficult to tell if you need a new roof. The great thing is, you don't have to know. Above & Beyond Roofing can tell you if you need one after you schedule your free roof inspection at the Lake of the Ozarks. If your roof is over 15 years, you should definitely have an inspection! However, it's advised that you have your roof inspected twice a year. By catching any small repair issues early, you can prevent the need for a premature re-roof.

4) Does a Roof Leak Mean I Need to Replace My Entire Roof?

A leak is obviously a sign of a roofing problem. Fortunately, a leak does not mean that you need to get a completely new roof. In many cases, the roof can be repaired in just the areas showing issues. The best way to determine if your roof can be repaired or needs to be entirely replaced is to talk to a professional. Aft

5) Can a New Roof Be Installed Over the Old One?

While it's technically possible to install a new roof on top of the old one, it's not advised. While it is cheaper, faster and requires less labor, roofing problems are likely to occur down the road when this is done. One of the biggest issues is that any defects, vulnerabilities and potential problems in the plywood deck or truss system will go unnoticed unless you remove the old shingles inspection, the roofer will be able to give you an assessment of what needs to be done.
