Answers to Austin’s Most Common Roofing Questions

At HD Roofing and Repairs, we’ve worked with the Austin community for over 20 years. Locally owned and operated, we treat our customers like family. During our time here in the wonderful city of Austin, we’ve noticed that many residents have asked our roofers the same questions about roofing over and over. We thought we would try to answer as many of those as possible today.

How Do I Know My Roof Should Be Replaced?

A few signs that your roof is reaching the end of its lifespan include, torn or missing shingles, roof leaks, flashings that have come loose, or even a buildup of excessive shingle debris in your gutters. The average shingle roof lasts about 20 to 25 years. If your roof is reaching that age, it could be time for a roof replacement.

If My Roof Is Leaking Do I Need a New Roof?

If you have a roofing contractor telling you either over the phone or in person that you definitely need a roof replacement because of a roof leak, they could be wrong. The roofing experts at HD Roofing and Repairs can give you a second opinion and a firm estimate as well. We have worked on Austin homes for over two decades and have extensive knowledge and roofing experience. If the roof issue is localized, and not showing any other signs of reaching the end of its life, we can usually repair your roof and extend the life, for much less than full roof replacement

What Kind of Roof Should I Get for My Austin Home?

When choosing a new roof and style for your home, there are a few factors to consider. When choosing a roof, lifespan of the roof should be considered. If you go with an asphalt shingle roof, you are looking at about 20 to 25 years until you’ll need to replace the roof again. If you decide upon a metal roof, they can last you over 50 years! The roofing experts at HD Roofing and Repairs are trained to work with roofing of all kinds. We can help decide on the best roof for your taste, needs, and budget.

Did the Hail Damage My Roof?

The hail that falls in Austin from time to time is no joke. It can cause issues with flashing, shingles, and more depending on the roof material and overall age. If you recently experienced a severe hail storm and would like to verify that your roof is undamaged, give us a call and we can give your roof a professional inspection.

How Long Does It Take to Replace My Roof?

While every job is different. Most often, a residential roofing job can be completed by our expert roofers in just one day. If a job requires a multi-day schedule, we make sure the site is clean and secured at the end of the day, while making sure any open or otherwise vulnerable areas are protected from any inclement weather.

Do I Have to Clean up After My Roofers?

Of course not! We will handle everything and make sure your Austin property is as beautiful as we left it. We always perform a walkthrough at the end of every roofing project, and we’re not done until you have approved and signed off on the final inspection.

We hope we were able to answer at least a few of your questions when it comes to Austin roofing services.
