FREQUENT QUESTIONS

Contact us anytime with questions regarding our services.

  • How do I know for sure I need a new roof?

    Older roofing shingles and wood shakes typically have a 15- to 30-year lifespan depending on the shingles’ quality, the location and tree cover of your home, and how well the roof was installed originally. Direct sunlight, weather/wind, and poor roof deck ventilation are rough on Bay Area roofs.

     

    Though the CertainTeed and GAF shingles we use today have lifetime warranties, they didn’t a decade ago. We tell our customers that 12 years is a good rule of thumb to go by. At that point, check for these warning signs:

     

    • Curling shingles
    • Loss of the asphalt granulation (looks like bald spots)
    • Evidence of leaking on your ceilings
    • Cracked or discolored interior drywall (painted or wallpapered)
    • Decaying shingles
    • Missing shingles
    • Visible cracks
    • Wind damage
    • Broken or damaged shingles
    • Rusted or missing flashing
  • How much does a new roof cost?

    Several factors go into determining the cost of your new roof. They include the quality and professionalism of your roofing contractor; the brand, type and grade of roofing shingle you select; the size of your roof and the shape and slope of your roofline.

     

    Don’t choose a roofing contractor on cost alone. Price is a factor, but not the only factor you should consider. Quality roofing material and contractor workmanship have value. Hiring the cheapest roofing contractor could cost more in the long run when you consider the cost to repair sub-par roofing and the damage it causes.

  • Can you roof over my existing shingles?

    Clients asking this question may fall into two camps: those who are hoping to save a buck by reducing the workload required by a project, and cautious homeowners who would prefer to not be stuck talking to another roofer in a few months. While there are many opinions on the subject, there are obviously cases where no professional would argue for reroofing. Still, convincing a stubborn client may take just a little bit of finesse. Usually these clients respond most strongly to facts, so knowing the basic information below may help them come around:

     

    • Shingles must be laid as flat as possible to be effective. Show the client where old shingles are lifted or curling, making a reroof inadvisable.
    • Shingles add weight to roofs. Here’s a factoid to remember: every 100 square feet of quality roofing adds 350 to 450 pounds of weight. That will be helpful for a client who’s asking about a second reroof.
    • A tear-off will allow you to inspect the underlayment and decking. Does your client have a leak? Then you know the problem may not be as simple as repairing the shingles. Make the client aware of the risks of a reroofing—namely, if there are additional problems with the roof, they may find themselves back here again in a few months.
    • Reroofing may void warranties or create problems come inspection time. Is your client planning on selling soon? They may be trying to replace their roof for the lowest price possible. But inspectors are wise to this kind of behavior, and will report it to any potential buyers who have an inspection performed.

  • Why do I need to hire you? Can’t I do this work myself?

    Ah, the question every roofer loathes. But the truth is, due to the poor overall reputation of the profession (the Better Business Bureau reports that a shocking 73 percent of homeowners feel home repair and improvement contractors can’t be trusted), you’ll have to defend your worth at every turn—especially for those homeowners who have a little bit of repair work under their belt. Here are a few points you can use to sway them:

     

    • They may seriously damage their roof. At their most innocuous, improperly nailed roofs can result in ripples, lifted shingles, and leaks. On the more serious side, there is potential for roof collapse and even bodily harm. A DIYer may have replaced a few shingles here and there, but they need to understand that roof work is a whole different animal.

    • It may not even be legal. Depending on the home’s location, local jurisdiction may forbid the homeowner from doing roofing work on their homes by themselves, and certainly without a license.

    • They may void a manufacturer’s warranty. Improper installations result in so many roofing replacements that manufacturers often won’t cover a roof that isn’t installed by a licensed contractor.

  • My roof is leaking—do I need to have the whole thing replaced?

    Sometimes the scariest thing is not knowing, and for homeowners who’ve sprung a leak, it’s hard to beat back visions of the whole roof collapsing before their very eyes. Thankfully, this is one place where you may be able to deliver some good news to your clients—depending on the size and the location, they may be able to get away without a new roof. You don’t want to have to dash your client’s hopes, however, so make sure you don’t give the false impression that their roof work will be a breeze before you’ve had a chance to make an inspection.

TESTIMONIALS

Read what some of our satisfied customers had to say.

I chose AEM because they explained things thoroughly and clearly. Their crews were extremely clean and professional. John was extremely communicative in the sales and installation process.  We did siding, windows, and roofing with AEM and couldn’t be happier. Our house looks amazing and our yard looks the way it did before they started. I would highly recommend if you want the job done for an affordable price and done the right way, you go with AEM.

I had a serious leak in my roof coming from my skylight and dormer. After careful consideration I went with AEM because I felt they were truly looking to solve my problem and not just sell me something. The roof project went seamless with the crews being clean and safe. My yard was immaculate after the install. They’re siding team re-sided my dormer in the back and it looks amazing, we can’t wait till the spring to do the rest. The whole process from start to finish was easy and seamless. Thank you AEM.

Review – (Roofing) Robert C. in Warwick, RI

 “After working with a previous roofing firm, that firm confirmed on a Saturday morning that they would be arriving later that morning to begin work. Never showed, never called. That company was found on a social website. I then turned to HomeAdvisor, and contacted 3 contractors, AEM being one of them. One never showed and the other I cancelled. John and Mike were both courteous, professional and actually called when they said they would call. Restored my faith in contractors. Plus, I got a new roof 3 days before New Year's Day. Would recommend AEM for any roofing needs.”

Review – (Roofing/Skylights) Linda B. in Cranston, RI

 “I needed a new roof and already had a couple of estimates. After finding AEM on Home Advisor, they were able to come out that afternoon. Right away, I felt comfortable with them; their explanation of the work was detailed and would include replacing everything, except the chimney! We even discussed 4 skylights that I was thinking of replacing. I confirmed their registration and insurance with the RI Contractors Registration Board. After receiving their quote and hearing they could start within a couple of weeks, I decided to have them do the work. Communication with AEM was excellent as they planned for materials and dumpster drop-off, etc. Any calls I made were quickly returned. The entire job was completed in one day, including the skylights. The owner was available in person, the workers were punctual, experienced and courteous. At the end of the day, my yard was clean of all debris, the work was high quality and my new roof looked fantastic. I had been dreading replacing my roof, worried about finding the right contractor, etc. AEM turned out to be the right company for the job and even made it a pleasant experience.”
