- How do I know if my roof needs replacing?
Without a signifiant knowledge in roofs and quite a bit of experience it can be very difficult to determine if you need a new roof. Knowing if you need a new roof is more than just noticing the shingles look worn and the color is fading. Sometimes a roof can look as though its still in great condition, and yet hail has chipped away at the shingles in a way that makes it near impossible to determine for the untrained eye that a roof replacement is needed. With over 30 years of experience in roofing and construction we're happy to come out and use our knowledge and experience to professionally evaluate your roof and give you an honest assessment as to if your roof needs to be replaced.
- How long should my roof last?
Although the unpredictability of weather can vary how long a roof will last we'll just tell you that in 30 years of construction and roofing we have never replaced the same roof twice. A decent quality shingle these days is designed to last 30-40 years or MORE! When you pair quality roofing material with the professional workmanship Coffman provides theres a good chance you won't need another roof in your lifetime. The only time we see our roofing clients again is if they have more properties, move into another house that needs a new roof, or saying hi around town!

Winter can sometimes mean we have to work around weather a little bit more but we can absolutely replace your roof any time of year to make sure you have peace of mind all year long.
- Can I do roofing repairs and replacement myself?
There are certainly a handful of individuals out there who have the time, physical capacity, the tools, a foundational knowledge and a willingness to learn the rest in order to repair or replace a roof. There are far more individuals who call us in the days, weeks, or months after they've tried to repair or replace a roof asking us to please help them fix or redo their roofing project.
