Roofing Replacement In Nashville

Having your roof replaced usually is a process that people dread because it is so expensive and requires “downtime” for your home.  While this is understandable, the fact of the matter is–it is better to replace the roof of your Nashville residential or commercial structure before the roof shows signs of problems.  This protects the well-being of your building and its underlying structures. The way to make sure you stay a step ahead is to get regular roof inspections because you really can never know too much about the health of your roof.  Your roof is an immensely critical part of your Nashville home’s structure and knowing the status of it, season to season could save you from costly (and needless) repairs. We recommend regular roofing inspections, at least once, but probably more like twice per year, to get a feel for the rate of deterioration, upcoming issues, and roof replacement forecasts.

Replacing your roof right when it is time will actually save you money

Replacing your roof shows signs of irreparable aging and before you get extensive damage from leaks is a very good way to keep total home improvement costs low.  A roof that “mostly” works is not sound and certainly not good enough to prevent damage to the underlying structures. While most of the time repairs are the right option on most roofs, replacement, over time, will become the only option.

The right contractor will make the roof replacement process hassle-free

It is true that having contractors working on your property, even outside replacing a roof, is difficult.  There are noise and mess and even the potential for lost work days on your part. However, a good contractor, like us at United Roofing Pros Nashville, combined with our experienced crews, should always be able to:

  1. Minimize overall disruption from worker noise
  2. Give you a solid start and end time for the project and stick to it
  3. Keep the area relatively orderly and somewhat accessible
  4. Leave the site mess free when finished

When Is It Time To Replace Your Roof?

Exactly when it is time to replace your Nashville roof is partially subjective based on a client’s needs and budget and the contractor’s experience and understanding of how roofs age. However, there are a few solid rules that are generally agreed upon industry-wide by contractors and roofing material manufacturers and likely homeowners too.  Depending on what type of materials your roof is made of, replacing a roof is pretty standard at about 15- 20 years. However, this is just a rule of thumb and applies mostly to asphalt shingle roofs. Composite type shingles and roofs made out of metal, tile or slate, are known to last much longer when properly cared for. While 20 years is a good estimate, roof replacement for your Nashville home and/or commercial space could be + or – 5 years,  depending on how well it was installed in the first place. Because even the best materials fail when improperly installed. Also, inclement weather plays a big role on wear and tear over the years: age, attic stains, mildew, leaking, curling, missing or bald shingles, broken tiles, profuse algae growth also could mean a new roof is needed.

Nashville Home Roof Replacement

Besides the cost of your home itself, replacing the roof of your Nashville home is probably the biggest investments you will make throughout the life of your home.  It should, therefore, be a process that is well researched and even better understood before you hire a contractor. After all, your roof is the first line of defense of your Tennessee home against the sometimes incredibly wet weather here.   It is also arguably the most prominent design feature of any house and one you want to keep looking good. Also, when it comes to the roof of your Nashville home you really want to be sure to use a well-vetted, trustworthy roofing contractor, like us here at United Roofing Pros Nashville.  We understand that our work has a far-reaching impact on the long term “health” of your entire home and resale implications as well. 

Commercial Roofing Replacement In Nashville

Commercial buildings are a place where roof replacements done in a timely manner are that much more critical.  In fact, failing to replace your roof when it needs to be replaced has much deeper implications for you, the building owner, and your tenants too.  A leak, for example, from a commercial roof could devastate the occupants of your building. It will likely damage expensive equipment, furnishings, and decor but could also cost the tenant in downtime too.  Furthermore, if you don’t have the roof repaired or replaced with due diligence, you may be responsible for damages and may even be required to pay for them. With so much at stake because of the extreme moisture here in Nashville commercial roofs get a lot of wear and tear.  Whether from rain, wind or humidity, replacement here simply needs to be done more often. However, a new roof on a commercial investment both protects your building and protects you from potential litigation. New roofs, due to newer roofing material technology also tend to be more energy efficient– saving you money on energy costs.  So, the money you save in heating and cooling expenses could very well help offset the cost of your new Nashville commercial roof replacement.

Flat Roof Or Low Slope Roof Replacement In Nashville

If you have a flat or low slope roof on your Nashville home or commercial space you already know the issues that these types of designs have because of their shape.  They hold water and because of this they typically need to be replaced sooner than other types of roofs. While we understand replacing your flat roof can be expensive–we believe this is all the more reason to keep on top of maintenance and make the decision to replace when it is time.  Standing water means flat or low sloped roofs need to replaced promptly when they show signs of aging. Furthermore, if you find this type of roof was not installed correctly in the first place–replacement is usually critical. Like regular roofing, failing to replace a damaged low or flat slope roof in a timely manner will always cause larger more extensive damage.  Moisture issues mean these roofs need to be replaced more often and, typically, at greater expense. However, the good news is, low and flat slope roofing materials, many times may still be under warranty, meaning you may be able to take advantage of that savings for your Nashville home or business.
