Roofing Installation & Repair
Commercial & Residental
When it comes to installing/replacing your roof, you only want the best quality available. The roof over your head plays a vital part in preserving the value and safety of your home. The life of your roofing system is dependent on the manner and quality of installation, as well as the quality of the materials your contractor uses.
Has your roof suffered storm damage? Is your roof leaking? If your roof has sustained damage, we highly recommend you call us as soon as possible for a free roof inspection. Most of the time, a total roof replacement is unnecessary. Depending on the age and health of the roofing system, a repair can fix the problem temporarily and, sometimes, for many years. It is important to hire a reliable, roof repair contractor in the earliest stages possible. Roof damage can worsen quickly and even force an entire roof replacement, if not repaired in a timely manner.
Both commercial and residential roofs should be inspected regularly to evaluate all roof components and to plan for routine roof maintenance. The cost of roof inspection that includes minor roof repairs offers significant savings when compared to the cost of complete roof restoration. EBS Construction and Renovations provides certified roof inspection services from a licensed roof inspector qualified to make recommendations for emergency roof repairs when necessary.

How can I determine if my roof needs to be repaired or replaced?

Check for cracked or missing shingles and damaged flashings and contact a EBS Construction & Renovations for a licensed roof inspection.
My roof leaks. Do I need to replace it immediately?

How long do new roofs last?
The average lifespan of a roof is about 20 years with regular maintenance. Certain types of roofing can last 30 years or longer including cement fiber, tile, slate and copper..
What is the industry standard for warranties?
Manufacturer warranties are regulated by industry standards and cover defects in roofing materials only; while warranties for labor are offered by roofing contractors and vary widely depending on the contractor.
Can roofing be installed or repaired during winter?
There are no standard temperature guidelines for installing asphalt roof shingles although certain materials can become brittle during colder months. An experienced roofing contractor will store materials properly and work with one bundle at a time.
What is the best asphalt shingle to use on my roof?
Asphalt shingles must be in compliance with standards and applicable building codes. The performance of asphalt shingles also depends on their compatibility with surrounding roof components in addition to quality.
When should a shingle underlayment be used?
The use of an underlayment protects shingles and decking from wood resins and water penetration and increases fire resistance. Many manufacturer warranties also require the use of an underlayment.
Are asphalt shingles environmentally friendly?
Asphalt shingles are available in fiberglass or organic format. Organic shingles are saturated with asphalt for waterproofing and are less environmentally friendly due to a high asphalt content compared to fiberglass or composite shingles.
