If your shingle roof is between 15-20 years, it’s likely time to replace your roof. But since every roof is different, you’ll also want to consider the elements it’s been exposed to. Southern New Jersey roofs may last a little longer than some storm-prone cities or towns but hail, strong winds, extremely long winters with lots of precipitation, and driving rains can shorten the roof’s lifetime. The underlayment used also factors into your roof’s lifespan. As does poor workmanship or repairs that were done improperly.
Don’t guess about the condition of your roof. Find out how much life your roofing system still has in it. As a roofing contractor NJ residents trust, we invite you to call us first. We’ll tell it to you straight. No matter what, don’t risk the quality of your home’s greatest protection on a number your insurance person gave you.
Roof replacements aren’t always necessary. Sometimes the only thing your precious investment needs is a solid roof repair. Repairs, while less expensive than a total roof replacement, are no less valuable in the longevity of your roof. A bad roof repair won’t fix the issue, or worse may end up hiding it from you. You may think the roof is repaired and the leak is fixed only to find water pooling in an area of your attic causing more long-term issues and possibly mold.
A good roofing company not only makes the repair but solves the original problem as well. If water is leaking, it’s important that the roofing company understands the leak so it can be fully addressed and not just patched. Some roofing companies just stop the flow. In those cases, it will come back. It’s only a matter of time.
Storm damage is certainly not fun. No one enjoys worrying about their home but it can provide the push you need to get your roof looked at. If you’ve seen loose shingles in your yard, roof accessories that look bent, ventilation components askew or anything else that might have been caused by recent storms, don’t wait for a leak.
Call a roofing professional to check out the damage to your roof. Sometimes it’s as small as a few loose, curled, or missing shingles that just need to be fixed before the lack of protection becomes a problem. Other times, more work is required. Whatever the level needed, Only the Best Builder will get the job done quickly and execute it flawlessly. The last thing you need is additional problems caused by those doing the repairs.
A Few Things You Likely Don’t Know About Your Roof but Should
As you might expect, there’s a lot that goes into roofing replacements and repairs. We love that we have some of the most knowledgeable customers out there because they take the time to learn their options before they spend their money on their roof.
When customers are well informed, they know what to expect and that keeps everyone happy.
Here are a few secrets about roofing you might not know:
- Size and placement matters when it comes to nails on shingles. The wrong size or placement and a shingle can buckle, rip off, or curl.
- Poor ventilation of your roofing materials can cause a roof to expire prematurely by causing the asphalt shingles to deteriorate from the inside out.
- Old shingles and underlayment should be completely removed before a new roof is laid. It’s called swabbing the deck. Some companies cut this step because it’s quicker and less costly (to them) to reuse materials.
So, what happens when roofers use these bad practices?

We share these not to make light of the situations but to show you that not all builders have the same attention to detail and quality you deserve. Especially when your company name is Only the Best Builder.
