How Long Does it Take to Replace a Roof?

How Long Does it Take to Replace a Roof?

Do you need a new roof? If you’ve been contemplating getting a new roof, there’s a strong possibility that you have a variety of questions floating around in your mind. Chances are that some of those questions reverberate around how long it will take a new roof to be installed. While there is no concrete answer to that question, there are some variables to consider that will affect the timeline of installing a new roof.

Here are a few variables that impact how long it will take to replace your roof:

Type of Roofing Materials Used

First, you need to consider what type of roofing materials are going to be used. The most common and quickest roofing material to lay is asphalt shingles. Though special order asphalt shingles can delay the project a bit, it is the quickest to install. Other products like wood shakes and ceramic tiles can take longer. In fact, ceramic tiles can also require your roof structure to be reinforced to carry the additional load, which can add to the time as well.

Size of the Roof Being Replaced

Another consideration when determining how long a roof will take to install is the size of the roof. Obviously, a smaller roof will take less time to replace than a larger roof. A quality roofing contractor like Byars Roofing should be able to give you a better idea when providing a quote.

Re-roofing vs. Tear Off

Whether you are getting a reroof or complete tear-off is another factor that will impact how long it takes to install a roof. In a reroof scenario, the new shingles are laid right over the old shingles so you save on the time it takes to remove the old shingles. A complete tear-off involves removing the old shingles before laying the new shingles so it prolongs the process a bit.

Quality of Roofing Contractor Hired

Last, but not least, you also need to consider the quality of roofing contractor you hire. A reliable roofing contractor like Byars Roofing will show up, start the work, and continue working day after day until the work is completed. Less reliable companies or one-off handymen might show up one day the first week, and then not come back until the next week, which drastically lengthens the time the job will take.

Contact Byars Roofing to get a quote and schedule your roof replacement today!

If you are in need of a new roof, don’t wait! Call Byars Roofing today to ensure that you get an estimate and can get on schedule before your damaged roof deteriorates even more.

4 Signs of Roof Damage That Should Be Addressed Immediately

4 Signs of Roof Damage That Should Be Addressed Immediately

Have you been noticing something strange with your roof? Are you thinking there might be an issue with it that needs be addressed? Byars Roofing has put together a quick list of signs that you might need a roof repair. Keep reading to learn more!

  1. Signs of Water Damage in the Attic
  2. This one is a sure sign of roof damage. Your attic is the area directly underneath your roof and if you visit your attic and find water or signs of water damage, it’s important to act right away. This could be signs of past damage, but it can also be a sign of an active issue that should be addressed right away.

  3. Whole Shingles or Shingle Fragments on Your Yard or Driveway
  4. When you pull in and out of your garage, can you see some of your shingles rising off the roof or bald patches that are completely missing shingles? Or, after a storm do you see shingles or pieces of them lying on the ground? If that’s the case, you will definitely need some type of roof repair or replacement.

  5. Physical Signs of Wear or Damage
  6. If you see a tree smashed into your roof, you’re going to need a roof repair. That one seems like a no brainer, but it’s important after a big storm to step out to the curb or back of your yard and search for any physical signs of damage. It could be a small crack from something that hit your roof before blowing away, so pay close attention.

  7. Sagging Structural Supports or Roof
  8. Another sign that you need a roof repair is if you notice a sag in your roof. This could be caused by a cracked beam or water damage, but regardless of the cause, it needs to be addressed immediately by a professional roofing contractor like Byars Roofing. A structural issue with your home is not just dangerous, but can also lead to other issues.

Contact Byars Roofing Today for Your Roof Repair Needs!

Four Roof Safety Tips to Keep Your Roof In Good Condition Year Round

Four Roof Safety Tips to Keep Your Roof In Good Condition Year Round

Your roof is an important structural element of your home. It’s also very costly to replace, which is why you should take caution to ensure that it’s kept in good condition. While you might think that means hiring someone to come out and perform regular inspections on your roof, it’s actually much simpler than that.

Here are four roof safety tips to keep your roof in good condition year round:

  1. Trim back any branches that are overhanging your roof.
  2. This first one is simple. If you have any large branches overhanging your roof, you should trim them back immediately. Even tree branches that don’t look too big can cause massive damage if they fall onto your roof and crack it. Be sure to hire a professional tree removal company if you’re not comfortable or feel safe doing the job yourself.

  3. Periodically check out the attic and see if there are signs of water up there.
  4. Most people hate the attic and only venture up there during the winter to pull down the Christmas decorations. However, you really should go up there every couple of months to check for water damage. A quick peek with a flashlight will tell you all you need to know, as signs of water damage are pretty easy to spot.

  5. Regularly check your roof to look for bald spots or peeling/worn shingles.  
  6. Another tip to follow is to regularly inspect your roof to look for bald spots. If you’re not comfortable getting on a ladder or climbing on the roof, you can call a professional roofing company to take a look. In addition, you can also step out to the curb and back of your yard and give it a thorough look to see if you spot any obvious signs of damage to your shingles.

  7. Address any issues—even minor ones—right away with a professional roofing company.
  8. Finally—and this is an important one—you should address any issues right away with a professional roofing company. When you see signs of wear, water damage, or structural issues with your roof, it is important to act right away to prevent further issues from evolving.

Call Byars Roofing for your roofing needs!

The last thing you want to happen is for water to start seeping into your home due to a faulty roof. Thankfully, with Byars Roofing, you won’t need to worry about that! By following the roof safety tips listed above and working with an experienced professional roofer like Byars Roofing, you can ensure that your roof—and home—are protected year round. With over 73 years of experience in the roofing industry, you can trust the licensed and insured team at Byars Roofing to get the job done right.

Did You Know It’s Important to Have Your Roof Looking Sharp When You Sell Your House?

Did You Know It’s Important to Have Your Roof Looking Sharp When You Sell Your House?

If you are planning to sell your home this summer it is important to have everything in tip-top shape. Buyers want a home that looks great and having your roof in good shape is essential for getting a great price for your home and moving it quickly.

Here are just a few reasons why you’ll want to make sure your roof looks great if you’re planning to sell your home:

  1. Many Homeowners Don’t Want to Take on “Projects”
  2. Would you want to buy a home that needs new garage doors, a new septic system, or new siding? If not, you’re like most prospective buyers out there. Unfortunately, if your roof is in a serious state of disrepair, it could deter buyers from making an offer at all. If you need a new roof, Byars Roofing can help!

  3. Small Signs of Neglect Reflect the Possibility of Bigger Issues
  4. A cracked window here a broken cabinet door there. While it might seem insignificant, a bunch of little signs of neglect can paint a picture that a homeowner didn’t properly care for their property. That might also mean they never had the drains snaked, didn’t ever replace the furnace filter or have the gutters cleaned. If that’s the case, it can mean costly fixes down the road. Make sure your roof doesn’t show even a small sign of neglect to avoid that!

  5. Curb Appeal Sells
  6. The houses that sell the quickest are the ones that show the best. A house that doesn’t even look good in staged photos might make buyers shy away from even viewing it. Instead of letting your roof detract from the overall appearance of your home, why not make it truly shine?

  7. Signs of Water Damage and Structural Damage Deter Buyers
  8. Signs of water damage or structural damage are going to send prospective buyers running for the hills. If your home shows signs of water damage in the attic or structural roof damage, get it fixed before listing your house for sale.

Trust Byars Roofing to Get Your Roof in Tip-Top Shape Before You Sell!

If you are looking to sell your home in the near future, it is essential to have your roof in good shape. Make sure that there are no bald spots or missing shingles, and that there are no obvious signs of damage. You should also take a look in the attic to check for signs of water damage or sagging beams as that can be indicative of a larger issue. If you see any major issues, don’t panic! Byars Roofing can come out and fix your roof quickly so that you won’t see any issues with the sale. Contact us today at 909-986-0509 to get an estimate or schedule your appointment.

5 Ways Byars Roofing Can Help You This Summer

5 Ways Byars Roofing Can Help You This Summer

You likely don’t look into roofing companies until you need one. Unfortunately, that time often comes in the midst of an emergency. Instead of panicking when disaster strikes, how about taking a few minutes now to learn a bit more about how Byars Roofing can help you?

  1. Re-Roofing
  2. If your roof isn’t in a good state, you might be able to re-roof it instead of getting a brand new roof. This will save you money while quickly restoring the beauty of your home. In addition, re-roofing will still address damage and issues like leaks or wear and tear. Byars Roofing has been providing quality re-roofing services for 73 years.

  3. Roof Repairs
  4. When your roof is damaged it is essential to get it fixed right away. A damaged roof exposes your home to the elements and once water or wildlife gets in, it can be hard to remedy the problem without paying even more money. If you noticed a leak in your roof, debris build-up, sagging supports, or noticeable damage to your roof, it is important to call an experienced roofing company like Byars Roofing to get the repair done quickly and prevent further damage.

  5. New Construction Roofs
  6. If you are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a new home, don’t you want every aspect of it to be top-notch? Well, unless you hire a specialized roofing company like Byars Roofing, you might not be getting the best roof. At Byars Roofing, we’ve worked on commercial and residential roofs ranging from houses to shopping malls and churches. If you need a roof put on your new construction home, call Byars Roofing.

  7. Roof Inspections  
  8. When it comes to commercial facilities, it is important to get regular roof inspections. Most commercial facilities have flat roofs, which can help shield damage from the naked eye until the problem has grown exponentially and there is water leaking into your building. With regular roof inspections by Byars Roofing, you can rest assured that any issues will be caught before they grow into more costly problems.

  9. Roof Maintenance  
  10. After getting a roof inspection, you might notice some slight issues that need to be fixed. Byars Roofing can help with that too. Not only do we inspect your roof, but we can also make sure that routine maintenance is performed to prolong the life of your commercial roof.

What Is the Best Roofing Material for Your New Roof?

What Is the Best Roofing Material for Your New Roof?

When you need a new roof, a sense of dread can set in. Not only do you have to worry about shelling out several thousands of dollars and getting someone out quickly before a water issue arises, but you also have a big decision to make—what type of roof to get. You can simply replace your roof with whatever is currently on there, but there are plenty of other options to consider. Keep reading to learn a bit more about the different types of roofing materials you can choose for your home.

Asphalt Shingles

The cheapest and most common option when it comes to roofing materials is asphalt shingles. The standard three-tab asphalt shingle is what you’ll see on most roofs around the country and that’s because they provide a great value. Not only is asphalt shingles the cheapest option, but they also come in a wide variety of colors so you can choose an option that looks great with your home. A typical asphalt shingle roof will last 20 to 30 years, which is fair considering the affordable price.

Wood Shakes & Fakes

Another option for roofing material is wood shakes. These are typically made out of cedar because it is one of the most weather-resistant types of wood. You can get some color variation depending on the species used, but there isn’t as wide a variety to choose from as there is with asphalt. Though wood shakes cost a bit more, they will typically last 30 to 50 years. You can also get faux wood shakes that will satisfy stricter fire codes in the West where wildfires are more prevalent.

Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile is the most expensive option when it comes to roofing materials, but nothing beats the look a ceramic barrel tile, especially in tropical areas like Florida and California. Something to keep in mind with ceramic tile is that beyond the incremental cost of the tile, you might also have to have your roof framed again to support the increased weight of the tile.

Corrugated Metal

Corrugated is another option. Though this is a less popular choice, there are few sounds better than a light rain on a metal roof. The galvanized metal is waterproof and will last up to 50 years. Plus, this is a cheaper option that adds a custom look to your home. Metal roofs are also available in basically every color possible because they can be painted.

Help – I Need Emergency Roofing Services in Ontario, CA!

Help – I Need Emergency Roofing Services in Ontario, CA!

It’s midnight during a big wind storm and you hear a loud cracking sound. Next thing you know, the tree that was once standing nicely beside your house is cracked in half and laying on your roof. It’s pouring rain and water is seeping into the now cracked roof. What do you do? If it was normal business hours you could call any roofing company in Ontario, CA, but it’s midnight so you need to call Byars Roofing for emergency roofing services in Ontario! Byars Roofing has over 73 years of experience in the industry and we are the best in the business when it comes to emergency roof repairs in Ontario, CA.

What are the types of emergencies that would require roof repair right away?

Are you wondering what type of emergencies would require calling Byars Roofing for an immediate repair? Well, there are plenty of issues that can arise. For example, if you notice a leak—big or small—in your roof, you should call us right away. In addition, if you’ve lost roofing materials in a strong storm or have fallen branches or debris on your roof, you need to call immediately. Structural issues, such as a cracked roof or roof support, sagging or collapsed roof, or fire damage are also reasons to call for emergency roof repair.

Does insurance cover roof repairs?

The answers to this question depend on the type of roof repair, the reason behind it, and your insurance coverage and provider. Some insurances offer Wind Coverage, which might cover a roof repair—minus the deductible—if a strong wind storm blows a tree over and onto your house. Again, insurance coverage depends on many issues so the best course of action would be to call your local insurance agent to discuss the issue and see if you might be eligible for coverage.

What happens if I don’t act right away?

Your roof is the first layer of protection for your home. Without a structurally sound roof, your entire house can become compromised. Additionally, not addressing a leaking roof right away can lead to larger issues, like major water damage, mold, and structural issues. If you notice any problems with your roof, it is important to call an emergency roofing company like Byars Roofing right away!

Top Signs You Might Need a Roof Repair

Top Signs You Might Need a Roof Repair

A new roof is one of the largest investments you can make into your home. Thankfully, instead of spending thousands on a new roof, you might just be able to have yours repaired instead. Not sure if you need a roof repair? Keep reading to learn about the common signs that a roof repair is necessary.

Shingles on Your Lawn or Gutter

If you notice shingles on your lawn or gutter, they had to come from somewhere. This means you might have a bald spot on your roof and are at risk for water getting in. You might need a roof replacement soon, but a roof repair might buy you a bit more time.

Signs of Water in the Attic

Another sign that you need a roof repair can be found without even looking at the roof. If you notice signs of water in your attic during your regular inspection—yes, you should be inspecting your attic regularly—it is a sign you might need flashing repair. Light filtering into the attic through the roof is also a sign that you might need a roof repair because if light can get in, so can water.

Sagging Rafters

While you’re up there in the attic for a regular inspection, you should also take a peek at the rafters. If they are sagging, it could be a sign that there is moisture getting through the roof into the attic. This can become a major structural issue and should be repaired right away.

Stains on Your Wall or Ceilings

If you have water stains on your ceiling or walls, it could be a sign that you need a roof repair. After all, the water to cause those stains had to come from somewhere, and the roof is the most likely culprit. If this is the case, you should call a professional to take a look before the damage becomes even costlier to repair.

Cracked, Curling, or Missing Shingles

Another sign that you might require a roof repair is curled, cracked, or completely missing shingles. If your shingles are curled that the end or are completely cracked, they are towards the end of their lifespan. Missing shingles are also another major signal that you should get a roof repair and it is best to get one done immediately.
