Your Source for Roofing, Gutters, and Window Installation
Are you wondering about the timeline for a re-roofing project? Perhaps you’d like to know more about our affordable siding and windows. Whatever your question, A-1 Roofing is here to provide the answer. Below, you’ll find some common questions we receive from our customers in Aberdeen, Port Orchard, and Olympia, WA.
Can I Install a New Roof Myself?
No—we never recommend DIYing a new roof installation. While some roofers make it look easy, the job requires lots of safety precautions and specialized knowledge. Your best bet is always a professional roofing service like A-1 Roofing!
How Long Will My New Roof Last?
How long a roof lasts depends on the material it’s made from and the quality of maintenance over the years. A typical shingled roof can last up to 20 years. However, the rainy weather in Washington can reduce your roof’s lifespan by a few years.
How Much Does a New Roof Cost?
Like its lifespan, the cost of a new roof depends on the material. Luckily, A-1 Roofing provides free estimates on all our commercial and residential roofing services. In general, you can expect anywhere from $20 to $500 per square foot of material.
What’s the Best Type of Roofing?
The best type of roof for your home depends on what’s most important to you. If you’re most interested in affordable materials, composite is your best option. If you’d prefer something that stands the test of time, consider a metal roof that might last up to 50 years.
How Long Does a Roof Installation Take?
The time you’ll need to set aside for installation depends on the scope of the project. Smaller roofers only take three days, while expansive roofs can take up to 10 days. And if the weather becomes an issue, we’ll have to add a few more days to the schedule. Our team can provide you with an estimate of how long your project might take.
What Can I Do to Prepare for Service?
The team at A-1 Roofing has all the supplies necessary to complete roofing services from beginning to end. The best way to help us out is to make sure there’s an accessible outdoor power source.
Why Is Gutter Cleaning Important?
Gutters are instrumental in protecting your roof from water damage. Rainwater on the roof drains down the gutters and away from your home. But when the gutters are blocked or installed improperly, they might direct water onto your foundation, causing further damage and mold growth. Seeking gutter cleaning services is the best step toward avoiding these problems.
When Is the Best Time for Pressure Washing?
We recommend pressure washing during the springtime.
Which Windows and Siding Have the Best Energy Efficiency?
Fiberglass windows tend to have better energy efficiency when compared with vinyl. Our experts in windows and siding can recommend the best windows to keep your utility bills down.
What Should I Expect from a Window Installation?
Luckily for you, A-1 Roofing takes care of all the hard work when it comes to installing windows. Expect the job to take anywhere from two to five days, depending on how many windows you need to be replaced. Our team will handle all the preparation work, measurements, and ordering, so you can anticipate a stress-free process.
Can I Replace Windows During the Winter?
It’s no problem to replace windows during the winter! If you’re dealing with drafty, inefficient windows, there’s no reason to put off replacement until the spring.
Do I Need to Be Home During Service?
Nope—we’ll take care of all the hard work for you, and you can go about your day as usual!
