4 Frequently Asked Questions About Roofing

At Arry’s Roofing, we are committed to answering all our customers’ questions about our services and roofing in general to make the repair or replacement process as smooth and transparent as possible. Here are the most frequently asked questions we receive, and our answers:


1. Which Roofing Material Is the Best?

The best roofing system for your needs depends on a variety of factors. In addition to your personal preference, you have to consider your budget, local climate, your home’s architectural style, and the weight of the material. To recommend the most suitable products, we’ll need to evaluate your home and analyze your situation.

No roofing system is superior in all areas, but we can help you choose one with the healthiest balance among beauty, durability, energy efficiency, sustainability, affordability, and maintenance requirements.

2. Is It Possible to Install a New Roof Over an Existing One?

Yes, it’s always a possibility, especially with asphalt shingle roofing systems. However, we prefer to remove all of the old materials so we can thoroughly inspect the condition of the wooden roof deck. As the foundation of your roof, damaged decking could cause severe problems even if you’ve recently installed a new roof.

3. When Is the Ideal Time to Invest in Re-Roofing?

The best time to get a new roofing system is when your current one damaged beyond repair or is reaching the end of its service life. Our company can install roofs any season of the year, including winter. We may have to make some minor adjustments due to certain weather conditions, but we always guarantee a flawless installation.

4. Does a Light-Colored Roof Last Longer Than a Dark-Colored One?

With proper attic ventilation, dark-colored roofing systems should live just as long as their light-colored counterparts. Keeping your attic space cool inhibits moisture buildup and prevents your roof from getting cooked from inside. This is especially true with asphalt shingles, which lose their structural integrity faster due to high attic temperatures.
