Cantor’s Corner: Roof Replacement & Repairs

It takes an expert to diagnose roof issues and let you know when it is time for a roof replacement. Don’t wait until the rains come. Some simple repairs could save you thousands of dollars in structural damages and loss of personal property or furnishes.
Depending on what type of roof you have, repairs or replacement will be necessary at some point. Composition roofs can last anywhere between 15-50 years, flat roofs last 10-20 years and while roof tiles can last a lifetime, the underlayment needs to be replaced every 20-30 years. Remember, it’s not the tiles that protect your home, it’s the underlayment.
At The Approved Home Pro Show, we often give advice for do-it-yourselfers, but for roofs, you absolutely need to hire an expert that you can trust. An experienced roofer knows how to handle inspections safely without damaging your existing roof. For repairs or replacement you need a licensed roofing contractor who has the experience, licensing and insurances.
