Can you roof over existing Shingles?

Laying a new layer of shingles over the existing ones is an option if your roof structure is good. By not tearing off old shingles it can save you some money. Our experts can help determine if you should do that or totally tear off the existing shingles.

How long do roofs last?

Depending on what materials were used and who installed it the life of a roof may vary. Wood shake roofs can last about 30 years, a fiber cement shingle can last 25 years and an asphalt shingle can last around 20 years.

If I have a leak do I need to replace the whole roof?

You do not always need to replace the whole roof. You may just need to have a section of the roof repaired or replaced rather than the whole thing. It is always best to have a roofing expert such as Eastbrook Construction to inspect and let you know your options.

What is the average cost of a new roof?

The cost has many variables, such as the size of the roof, how many floors the building is, the materials used, and the contractor installing. There is really no set cost, you can contact Eastbrook today for a quote on your roof.

Do roofers install during the winter?

Roofing contractors tend to work all year round. In fact, some roofers prefer the winter over the smoldering heat of the summer.
