All too often, roof problems are discovered after leaking or other serious damage occurs. Periodic (twice-a-year) inspections can often uncover cracked, warped, or missing shingles, loose seams and deteriorated flashings, excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters or downspouts, and other visible signs of roof problems. Indoors, look for cracked paint, discolored plasterboard, and peeling wallpaper as signs of damaged roof areas.
At Canridge Roofing & Exteriors we do a complete replacement of the roof system, involving a tear-off of the old roof.
Not necessarily. Leaking can result because some flashings have come loose or because a section of the roof has been damaged. A roof failure, however, is generally irreversible and results from improper installation or choice of materials, or from the installation of a roof system inappropriate to the building.
Most work should not be do-it-yourself. Professional contractors are trained to safely and efficiently repair or replace a roof. Novices can harm a roof with improper roofing techniques and severely injure themselves by falling off or even through a roof in need of repair or replacement. Homeowner maintenance should be confined to roof inspections in both the fall and spring to check for cracked or curling shingles, and to cleaning rain gutters filled with dead leaves and other debris.
The condition and lifespan of your roof will depend on the type of roof you have, the effects of your local environment and the maintenance, which the roof has received. The asphalt shingles we use generally last 35-50 years; wood shingle/shakes, 10-40 years; clay/concrete tiles, 20+ years; slate, 30-100 years; metal roofing, 15-40+years.
The price of a new roof varies widely, depending on the material selected, the contractor doing the work, the home itself, area of the country, local labor rates, time of year, and more. To get a good idea of the cost for your roof, get three of four estimates from reputable contractors. Keep in mind that cost is only one factor, and it must be balanced against the quality of the materials and workmanship. Canridge Roofing & Exteriors will give you more bang for your buck.
Yes, most general contractors and remodeling companies utilize subcontractors. Most of our subcontractors have been with Canridge Roofing & Exteriors for many years. Some companies that claim they have only employees doing their work are most likely “truck & ladder” contractors who are small enough to stay in business today, but are unlikely to be around tomorrow.

Unless the storm produced baseball size hail or larger, you most likely will not be able to see hail damage to your roof from the ground. Even smaller size hail is hard to detect standing on the roof. It is best to contact your insurance company to have an inspection scheduled. If there isn’t any damage, you will have the peace of mind that your home is OK.
Yes. It is standard that insurance companies will ask you to get two or three estimates. Your insurance company will send out an adjuster to evaluate the damage to your property. He will write a full scope of damage with an estimate to repair your home. This amount is called the replacement cost value (RCV), and is the amount the insurance company is willing to pay. If another contractor comes in and estimates your project to be higher or lower, the insurance company will adjust the payment accordingly.
