Is there anything I need to do to before the roofing company starts?A:
Roof replacement and repair is a messy and noisy process. Consider going somewhere else for about two to three hours once roofing contractors start removing the old shingles to avoid all the noise. Keep pets in mind, too. There’s no way around it, but we do all we can to minimize hassle and inconvenience during the roofing process.

You don't necessarily need to have your gutters and downspouts replaced. If your gutters and downspouts are in good shape, the roofing pros at Penn Ohio Roofing will work around them to avoid any damage. If your gutters are in relatively good shape but need minor repairs, we can provide this service too. Penn Ohio Roofing is a full-service roofing contractor.
Do you work with most insurance companies?A:
Yes, we work directly with insurance companies to assist in your claims for a roof repair or replacement. Talk to our roofing contractors to learn about the companies we work with.
What can I do about discolored shingles? Do they need to be replaced?A:
Discolored shingles are darkened from algae due to high humidity. The discoloration of your shingles won't hurt the integrity of your roof. You don't have to worry about a roof replacement if the discoloration is your only concern. However, discolored shingles do decrease your curb appeal. Consider using bleach solutions to remove the algae.
How much does the average roof replacement cost?A:
Many variables lead to roof replacement prices varying. Your roof’s pitch, type of shingles, the number of shingle layers on the roof, and the general condition of the roof all contribute to the pricing. Typically, the best way to see how much your roof replacement will cost is to schedule a free estimate with our roofing pros at Penn Ohio Roofing.
How do I recognize roofing damage in my Pittsburgh home?A:
If you’re concerned that your roof is damaged, the first step is to arrange for an interior and exterior roof check. A roofer will identify any cracked shingles, dark stains, sagging, rotting and mold, or leaks and water damage. It’s also helpful in determining the age of your roof, even if there aren’t any apparent spots of corrosion or loss.
Which type of roof is best?A:
The best type of roof is asphalt roofing shingles because they are lightweight, inexpensive, and easy for roofing companies to install. Asphalt shingles are the best choice for most houses in Greater Pittsburgh. They come in layered sheets to give the illusion of more expensive single shingles, such as cedar and slate, which are installed one shingle at a time.
When is the best time to replace my roof?A:
The best time for a roofing contractor to replace your roof is any time in spring, summer, or fall with a temperature above 30 degrees. You can schedule your roof replacement for a clear day with the number on our website.
How long will it take to replace a roof?A:
Penn Ohio Roofing provides one-day installation for a roof replacement. Home 365 reports that your replaced roof can yield upwards of 85% of its investment cost when it comes time to sell. This is a great investment that only takes a short amount of time.
How often should I replace my roof?A:
The lifespan of your roof depends on the roofing material used. A well-constructed shingle roof in the greater Pittsburgh area typically lasts between 15 and 20 years. After that, you may need a roof repair.
