FAQs for your Cleveland, OH roof
Q: What is the lifespan of my roof?
A: This is going to depend on a few different variables. Most importantly, it will depend on what materials were used. The typical life expectancy of asphalt shingles is anywhere from 15 to 30 years. Asphalt shingles are often more affordable than other options.
Q: My roof is leaking. Do I need to replace the whole thing?
A: You don’t necessarily need to replace the whole roof. Your course of action will be dependent upon the scope of the damage. If your roof is younger, it’s typically quite easy to just make some repairs, replace damaged shingles, and move on. If your roof is a little older, any damage can be detrimental, and may require either a more involved repair, or a full replacement.
Q: What is an ice dam?
A: An ice dam is the accumulation of ice on the eaves of your roof. Typically, this happens when there is snow on your roof, and the snow on the bottom layer starts to melt, and then freeze again. This will prevent more snow from melting off your roof. An ice dam can cause leaks and further damage.

Q: What are the signs I need a new roof?
A: There are quite a few ways to tell that you should consider a new roof. First, you should think about how old your roof currently is. If it’s already been there for 25 years, and you’re seeing extensive damage, it’s time to consider a new roof. If you’re seeing obvious sagging, stained areas, or major leaks in ceilings on the top floor, now is the time to replace your roof.
