Terri was very professional, and prompt. He started the project on Wednesday and had the entire repairs completed and the work area cleaned up by Friday. Took the additional steps to explain everything for the project and ensure us that they were going to have everything completed and cleaned up. I would definitely recommend him!

Ideas & Inspiration from San Francisco Roofing Contractors

San Francisco Roof Installation

The roofing material you choose for your home can make a big difference not only in your home's efficiency, but in its appearance and its value, as well. In San Francisco, roof installation is found in many different forms; in fact, the Bay Area is one place in the country where you're likely to find roofs made from just about every material available for the job! Whether wood or metal, rubber or tile, your San Francisco roof installation is a project that deserves some serious consideration if you want the best roofing material for your situation. Here are some facts about a few of the most common roofing materials that could help make your decision a little easier.

Asphalt is the most popular roofing material in the country. Though it doesn't have the kind of longevity you find with some other materials, asphalt is very affordable, provides some insulation, and can hold up under harsh conditions. Asphalt is also common enough and easy enough to install that it should be no problem finding a good contractor to do the work.

Wood, a material that isn't found as a roofing material in many areas, is not uncommon in and around San Francisco. Roof installation projects in other parts of the country tend to shy away from wood because in many climates, the material simply doesn't hold up as well as other options. Even in the Bay Area, wood will probably require more maintenance than other materials, but the look is appealing enough that some homeowners don't mind a little extra work. Wood also provides more insulation than most other roofing materials.

Homeowners looking for a roofing material that will go the distance should consider metal or tile roof installation. San Francisco homeowners can expect a lifespan of 40 or more years for their metal roof or 70-plus years for a tile roof. Each has its drawbacks; metal provides very little insulation on its own and must be supplemented, and tile is extremely expensive and may require installing extra structural support to hold up its higher-than-average weight.

Hiring a Contractor
Since there are so many different types of roofing materials found in the Bay Area, it is important that the contractor you hire to install your roof be well-versed in the material you choose. Though some roofing contractors might take whatever job they are offered, each material is installed in a different manner; finding a roofing company that specializes (or has a fair amount of experience) in whatever material you choose is generally a good idea. Make sure to discuss your project with several different companies and get estimates from each to get the best price, as well as the most skillful installation!

Since there is such a wide variety of materials common to the area and property sizes vary so much, it is difficult to say what the average price of roof installation in San Francisco is. What we can say is that we've seen Bay Area roof installations range between $5,000 and $15,000. Generally, asphalt roofing is the least expensive and tile is the most costly. Metal and wood are somewhere in the middle. One thing that should be taken into account when choosing a roofing material is the cost of maintenance it will require over its lifetime. Though you might be able to install a metal roof and a wood roof for around the same initial cost, wood is likely to cost far more in the long run due to the maintenance it will take to keep it in good shape.

San Francisco Roof Repair

There are a number of conditions present in the Bay Area that can cause premature damage to your roofing materials. The combination of wind and moisture in the air, San Francisco roof repair is a task that many residents are all too familiar with. Depending on the type of roof you have and the level of damage it has sustained, your repairs can be simple and inexpensive, or in the worst cases, be very involved and run you tens of thousands of dollars. Because of this, homeowners in the Bay Area should be especially diligent about maintaining their roofs, and make sure that when it comes time for replacement, that they not only find materials that will go the distance, but a contractor that will install them properly.

By Material
Asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing material in the country. They perform well, provide insulation, and are extremely cost-effective. In San Francisco, roof repairs for asphalt shingles should be relatively inexpensive as long as you catch small problems before they have a chance to turn into major issues. Unfortunately, minor problems that go unnoticed can, over a period of months, end up necessitating the repair or replacement of large sections of your roof; this, of course, can be very costly.

Though not as common as they are in southern California, tile roofing certainly has a following in San Francisco. Roof repair for tile roofs can get expensive quickly as the material itself is costly and working with it can be difficult due to its brittleness. Fortunately, tile roofing is very sturdy and can often last 70 years or more!

Metal roofing, though once extremely popular, is far less common than it once was. Some modern construction is employing metal roofing as it is extremely durable, lightweight, and cost-effective. Metal roof repair in San Francisco might not be offered by every roofing contractor, and homeowners with metal roofs may have to deal with a company that specializes in the material. The Bay Area is also home to wood roofing materials, which are a rarity in other parts of the country. Wood roofing may also require hiring a contractor that specializes in the material.

Repair vs. Replacement
Not every roof is a good candidate for roof repair. San Francisco homeowners with an asphalt roof that is more than 20 years old, a metal roof that is more than 50 years old, or a tile roof that is more than 70 years old should definitely consider replacement as an option, especially if their current roof has required several repairs in the past few years. In some cases, roof replacement can be a better option than roof repair even before the life expectancy of your roofing material is reached. Some homeowners might even replace a roof that is in okay shape with a different material in order to increase curb appeal or property value.

The Importance of Roof Inspections
For homeowners looking to get the longest life possible from their roofs, getting an annual inspection is a must. When a problem with your roof (like a leak, for example) becomes readily noticeable, there is often already a significant amount of damage done. By getting an annual roof inspection, homeowners are putting the odds in their favor for catching small problems with simple, inexpensive solutions before they become large, costly problems with involved solutions.

Prices of Repairs
Obviously, there is a wide range of prices when it comes to San Francisco roof repair. Costs range anywhere from $200 or $300 for inspections and simple repairs to more than $1,000 for more complex repairs. Installing new roofing can range anywhere from $5,000 to $15,000 or $20,000 depending on the type of material you choose and the size of the project.
