Q- What is Crown Roofing & Exteriors service area?

     Clinton, St. Clair,  Madison and surrounding counties.

Q- Can I place a new roof over my old one?

    Installing a new roof on top of an old one is not recommended. You may save money in the short run on the cost for removing the old roof, but it will cost more in the long run because not only will the life expectancy of your new roof be greatly reduced, you'll spend more on energy costs. As a matter of fact , the life expectancy of your roof can be reduced by half  and in most cases void your warranties.

    Here’s why. The second roof layer causes your roof to lose air flow which causes the shingles to overheat. This speeds up the rate at which the ceramic chips will flake off and the shingles dry out (See Curling Shingles). This also causes your home to retain a greater amount of heat causing your air conditioning system to work harder.

Q- Do I need a new roof ?

    There are Many indicators that suggest that you need a new roof.
    Residential/ Pitched Roofs:  A persistent leak, unexplained mold inside your home or business, curling shingles, ceramic chips in the gutter and near the drainage pipe on the ground and flashing pulling away from the structure.

Q- What are the common signs of roof damage?

    Loss of granules, curling, cracking, torn or missing pieces and visible fiberglass matting.

Q- Does the homeowner have to be present when the roof is being estimated/ inspected?

    No, the homeowner does not have to be home for an inspection/ estimate to happen. However we   would like one or both of the homeowners to be present when explaining the estimate/ inspection.

Q- Should I be concerned with granules in the gutter?

    Asphalt shingles are covered with ceramic granules to reflect water and light to protect the underlying material, and ultimately your roof. your shingles experience erosion from water, UV light and heat. UV light and heat dries the shingles out; water wears away at the granules, some of which have been loosened by heat and light. Unfortunately, the more granules lost, the faster your roof will deteriorate.

Q- Do you charge for estimates?

    There is no charge for estimates for new roofs. There may be a charge for repair / inspection estimates

Q- What are the options with chimney flashings?

    At Crown Roofing & Exteriors we do not recommend tar as the only seal on your chimney. The recommended method of flashing a chimney is to use a quality Ice & Water underlayment, aluminum step flashing and then, depending on what your chimney is made of, a surface or inset counter flashing.

Q- Should I Be concerned about curling shingles?

    Curling shingles are an indication that the oils are starting to evaporate and the shingle is shrinking exposing the plywood underneath. Water can then deteriorate the wood decking allowing water to enter your home or business.
