JC Home Roofs and Sidings Answers Some Common Roofing Questions, Queens, New York

Do you have questions about getting your roof repaired? If you’re experiencing problems with your roof, you may not know whether you can just get it fixed or if a new roof is required. If you live in the New York City area, the experienced contractors at JC Home Roofs and Sidings can answer all of your questions.

Here, the professional roofers at JC Home Roofs and Sidings in Kew Gardens, answer some common questions about roofing:

  • What Are Some Signs Of A Roof Problem? Unfortunately, many roofing problems aren’t noticeable until the damage is already underway. Problem signs include drips and stains on drywall, cracked paint, and peeling wallpaper; all of these signs can point to water infiltration.

  • If The Roof Has A Leak, Do You Need To Install A Whole New Roof? Not always. A leak can come from loose flashing, damaged shingles, or any number of other problems. If your decking is intact underneath, you y may only need a section of your roof repaired.
  • Can You Nail Over The Existing Roof? If the decking is in good shape, a nail-over roof installation is certainly a possibility. The extra layer of shingles will act as a good insulator; however, more than two layers puts a lot of weight on the decking and roof structure.
  • Should I Try To Fix It Myself? You should leave roofing repairs to a contractor; it’s tricky and dangerous work. You can help by inspecting your roof for debris, cleaning your gutters, and keeping an eye out for curling, cracking, or damaged shingles.
