ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS ABOUT ROOFING
Identifying the need for a new roof is occasionally evident: leaks, curling, cracked or granule loss on shingles, damaged flashing, or even visible signs of water intrusion make it undeniable. However, there are times when determining the necessity for a roof replacement isn’t as straightforward.
Even if there are no visible problems, an aging roof may require replacing to prevent future complications and costly repairs. Neglecting a timely roof replacement can lead to significant structural problems. Avoid this possibility by contacting a licensed roof contractor for a detailed assessment.
While anyone can utilize an online roof replacement cost calculator, you should always retain a licensed roofing contractor to assess your roof fully and provide a detailed estimate. The cost of a new roof depends on many factors, including roof size, pitch, height, and the presence of skylights, vents, and chimneys, not to mention the new roofing product you select.
When calculating the initial price, account for hidden factors that may impact the price subsequently. Although these unforeseen circumstances rarely occur, they need addressing before installing a new roof. Most reputable roofing companies will not construct a new roof until fixing them, as avoiding prompt resolution of concealed issues does not serve your best interests.
We will communicate these issues to you immediately once they have been identified. After that, we provide you with the most cost-efficient solutions to ensure the quality and service our customers expect from West Orange Roofing.

It depends. Hypothetically speaking, assume your roof has rotten plywood, a leak, or several missing shingles. Each of these challenges represents visible signs that your roof needs TLC. Other obvious roofing issues include these particular concerns:
- Watering staining inside your home
- Exposed roofing components appearing out of place
- Granule loss
- Moss or algae formation
However, unseen or hidden problems also adversely impact your overall roofing system’s performance, including the following potential issues:
- Rotting wood below the underlayment
- Pipe collar cracks
- “Hidden” leaks under the underlayment
- Shiners or nail pops in the attic
Inspecting your roof every few years makes sense, especially if your roof is 10+ years old. Roofs over 15 years old are not built to last as long as roofs today. A roof’s lifespan depends in large part on routine upkeep and maintenance.
When evaluating your property, including your home or structure’s roofing system, you need to understand all the options worth considering. Decisions based on knowledge and hard facts ensure your peace of mind throughout any roofing project.
