Review Common “Frequently Asked Questions”.
A Connor Roofing Tech Will Clarify Any Question On Your Site.
Our goal is to help you make an educated decision.
When should I replace my existing Roof?
Like any building component, roofs degrade at different rates depending on a large number of factors. These include the quality of original construction, the level of abuse, weather, the level of maintenance, appropriateness of design, and material used.
Beyond the obvious signs of missing shingles, time is the biggest indicator. If your roof was installed in the 1990’s, Connor Roofing will be happy to look at it, no charge or expectation.
How long do roofs last?
Twenty to thirty years is a reasonable expectation for newer Roofing products in the Helena, MT area. Ask about lifetime warranty products.
What is composition, composite, asphalt, laminated and architectural shingles?
These are different names for the same product. Composition shingles, made of asphalt and fiberglass, are often called asphalt or architectural shingles. They are made up of weathering-grade asphalt, fiberglass reinforcing mat, adhesive strip, and mineral granules.
They are cut and laminated to give more depth to the finished look, as well as adding a longer life to the shingle.
When should gutters and skylights be replaced?
To eliminate the concerns of bad skylights and gutters, it makes sense to replace them when you replace your roof, because they have the same lifespan.
When can you start?
We can usually start within 15 days.
How long will it take to complete?
Most Connor Roofing projects are completed within seven working days. Many take as little as three or four days.
What happens if it rains or snows?
We work year round. We’ll always keep your attic dry and it is perfectly okay if roofing materials get wet during installation.
Can I get a new roof in the winter?
Absolutely. We install roofs year round. In Montana, winter can shift from mild to extreme cold. With you, we will determine the best time to start installation.
Do I have to be home during the project?
No; however, we do ask that you are available by phone. And we need access around your home so we can use the driveway and power outlets.
What if you find rotten wood when you tear off the roof?
We will always replace any rotten wood we find. Before we act, we will discuss the best way to resolve the issue quickly and efficiently.
What license requirements are needed for Montana roofers?
As long as homeowners choose a licensed company, they will not be liable for any injuries on their property. If the company is not licensed, however, then the homeowner is liable.
How can a homeowner prevent roofing problems?
Once a year inspections can discover cracked, warped, or missing shingles, loose seams and deteriorated flashing, excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters or downspouts, and other visible signs of roof problems. Indoors you can look for cracked paint, discolored plasterboard, and peeling wallpaper as signs of a leaking roof system.
What will a new roof cost?
The price of a new roof varies widely, depending on the material selected, the contractor doing the work, the home itself, local labor rates, and more. You need to look at the full product range and make a choice based on your budget and needs. Within the roofing profession there are different levels of expertise and craftsmanship. Pick a contractor who is committed to quality work so you are sure they will be around to take care of the roof you put on.
