Many Marietta roofing companies don’t want to do repairs – they just want the big sale of a roof replacement. We don’t do things that way.

Our team will perform an honest evaluation and give you a clear recommendation regarding your best roofing options. If you only require repairs, that’s what we recommend.

Most of the time, if storm damage was caused, your insurance would pay for it (minus your deductible). You should call a Marietta roofing company to get a professional assessment completed as soon as you suspect storm damage.

Having an advocate during this process is recommended since the insurance company’s interests don’t align fully with yours.

It’s also important to be wary of Marietta roofing contractors who either do not fully understand the claims process or are dishonest.

Check out our Roof Insurance Claims page for more information.

That is not an option for us since it is insurance fraud. It’s illegal to tell you that you won’t have to pay your deductible – avoid any Marietta roofing company that says so. If they don’t mind committing insurance fraud, imagine what kind of roof they will install on your house!

A new roof will be stronger than the original one. Roofs can become damaged during storms or over time. Replacing a damaged roof with a new one helps solve gutter problems and improves energy efficiency.

It is essential to inspect your roof regularly because a problem can worsen if not dealt with. Inspecting the roof regularly will help you remediate any issues early. A leak doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to have your roof replaced. It may still be possible to repair your roof if the damage isn’t extensive.

Its material composition primarily determines life expectancy, whether it be metal or shingles. For example, a typical range lies between twenty (20) and fifty (50) years. Longer-lasting options such as steel require much higher costs when installed initially, in addition to maintenance fees that occur over time due to their high price point.

Roof inspections are recommended at least once a year. Call us for a free and honest inspection. 770-766-7770.

No, you probably shouldn’t. It’s not just the installation that needs to be done correctly- there are many things like application and techniques for installing roofs that might require a professional’s attention. The person replacing the roof must have adequate knowledge of these things; on top of this, most roofers offer insurance policies and warranties that cover their work if something were to happen with your new roof.

While some roofing contractors do allow negotiating, we prefer to give you the best price we can from the beginning. We don’t charge you any more than what the insurance company agrees to pay, other than your deductible, of course. If you are not using insurance and are paying for the roof cash out of pocket, we will still give you a great deal. When you shop roofers, you will notice they are all within 5% of each other. The lowest price isn’t always the best. You might sacrifice quality.

This differs between roofers. We are open on Saturdays. Our company will still inspect or install a roof on Saturday. Sundays are our one day to rest. We also provide 24/7 emergency services. So, we are available anytime that an emergency might arise.

It’s essential to have your step flashing replaced by a qualified roofer when you’re installing new shingles, as this is the only way they will be secure. If old flashings are not appropriately removed and reapplied to the home’s surface, it can lead to leaks in other areas that may need repair at an additional cost.

The asphalt shingles are the cheapest to replace. They are quick to lay down and easy to install. You can find them in most hardware stores and home improvement centers. Shingles are lightweight and easy to lift on when replacing. Metal roofs are more expensive to install and requires a more significant time investment up front, but it will require very little maintenance over the years.

A roofing contract should include the following:

  1. The date and time that the installation will begin.
  2. The length of the installation and how soon the contractor expects to be finished with the project.
  3. The type and quantity of materials to be used in the project.
  4. How much do the materials cost, and what options are available for payment on these materials?
  5. A description of all labor performed on the project.
  6. Who will do all work on the project (whether it is a contractor or not)?
  7. Roof warranty.

We typically charge by the day. What we quote for the job is determined by:

  1. The area of the work required to be done,
  2. The time needed to complete the project,
  3. The complexity of installation, and
  4. Type of roofing material used.

No. Metal roofing usually can’t be installed directly over asphalt or shingles without some type of additional protection underneath the metal roofing to prevent corrosion. We would tear off the old materials and install either standing seam or corrugated steel roofing directly onto a smooth layer of plywood sheathing using standard screws or nails with sealant applied between layers and flashing installed around interior openings.

One way to save money when replacing your roof is to get more than one quote. Even if you find the best deal, it’s important to receive multiple quotes so you can be sure it’s the right price for you.

Tips are a common but not required gesture for roofers. Roofers work hard and can handle a large variety of jobs, so if you have the opportunity to tip them, we recommend doing so. The standard is usually 10-15% of the total bill, but some people will tip more if pleased with the work.

The expected service life of a 30-year product is 25 years, but improper care will reduce its lifetime to 12 to 15 years. We recommend cleaning your roof at least once a year and inspecting it yearly to catch damage early.

Many factors go into the cost of a roof. The type of roofing material used, length of time it took to install, types of labor it needs, and any additional materials required can all affect the price.
