A roof is the most integral part of your home. It protects you and your loved ones from weather, pests, and debris. Having a quality roof over your head is one of the most important investments for you and your home.

How can a home owner recognize when their roof has problems?
Usually roof problems are discovered after leaking or other serious damage has occurred. However, periodic inspections can uncover cracked, warped, or missing shingles and tiles; loose seams, deteriorated flashings, excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters or downspouts are visible signs of roof system problems. Indoors look for cracked paint, discolored plasterboard, and peeling wallpaper as signs of damaged roof areas.
If you are concerned about roof damage or have spotted a potential problem don't hesitate to call us for an inspection!
There are two basic options you can choose from. Completely replacing the roof which involves tearing off your existing roof system and re-building it from the 'ground up'; or re-covering the existing roof system which involves adding another layer of protective material to the existing roof system. If you have already had one re-cover to your roof, it is recommended that a complete replacement be performed. In fact, in most instances building code requirements allow no more than one re-cover before a complete replacement is necessary.
At Veenkamp's we understand that cost is a big factor when deciding how to repair your roof! We will complete a thorough inspection and give you all the options so you can make an informed decision.
My roof leaks, do I need to have it replaced completely?
Not necessarily. Leaks can result from flashings that have come loose or a section of the roof system being damaged. Heavy winds and violent storms can often cause isolated damage that can be repaired rather easily. A complete roof system failure however is generally irreversible and the result of improper installation, poor choice of materials, or the roof system type being inappropriate for the home or building.
How long can I expect my roof system to last?
Most new roof systems are designed to provide useful service ranging from 10, 15, and even 20 years. Some roof system types such as slate, clay, concrete tile, and certain metal (e.g. copper) systems can last longer. Actual roof system life span is determined by a number of factors, including local climactic and environmental conditions, proper building and roof system design, material quality and suitability.
With typical asphalt shingles there is an initial curing phase during which granule loss may occur, small blisters may develop, or the shingles may curl slightly at their edges. You may even notice that this curling is more pronounced during cold weather and the shingles may lie flat as temperatures rise. This curing stage may last for several months but once the shingles have 'set' you will receive years of trouble free service from your new roof!
Veenkamp's has all the details on manufacturer warranties and will help you select a product that is right for your application and will last for years to come!
