Our unbeatable service and prices are why homeowners across New Jersey trust us with their roof replacement.

When to Get a Roof Replacement

Water Leaks

If you notice water stains in your attic or on your walls, you probably have a leaky roof. Fixing the leaks is the easy part. However, finding the source is much more challenging.

Water leaks are often invisible to the untrained eye. Moisture in your attic or roof can manifest as mold, rot, and other structural damage if left untreated.

If you have multiple leaks, roof replacement can present an all-encompassing solution. Our roofing experts remove the existing shingles and fill the cracks or holes in your roof. Once the substrates dry, we can replace your shingles with fresh material for a seamless roof replacement.

Damaged Shingles

Shingle damage comes in all forms. Some of the most common problems include curling, cracking, and blistering, which undercut your roof’s structural integrity. Roof repairs can handle these problems most of the time. If you have extensive damage, though, roof replacement may be the more budget-friendly option.

We recommend roof replacement at East Coast Roofing, Siding & Windows if you see damage on 30% or more of your roof. While we can repair the issues individually, you’re better off getting a new roof entirely. The upgraded system will eliminate any existing shingle damage and expose any potential structural problems.

Aging Roof

Every roof has a predetermined life expectancy. You can extend that lifespan with routine maintenance, but at some point, you’ll need to replace your roofing system. Here is the average life expectancy for the most popular roofing materials:

  • TPO: 7 to 20 years
  • Asphalt shingles: 12 to 20 years
  • EPDM rubber: 15 to 25 years
  • Wood shingles: 20 to 30 years
  • Architectural shingles: 25 to 40+ years
  • Metal roofs: 40 to 80 years
  • Slate shingles: 60 to 150 years
  • Clay tiles: 60 to 150 years
  • Copper shingles: 70 to 200 years

Unusually High Energy Bills

A well-maintained roof keeps your home at the optimal temperature year-round. If your roofing has leaks or poor ventilation, it can force your HVAC unit to work harder than usual. You should consider roof replacement if you notice recurring high energy bills.

Changing the color and reflectivity of your roof can lead to significant savings. A neutral coloring reduces light absorption, while solar reflectance can reduce roofing surface temperatures by 30%. A roof replacement can also improve your ventilation, which may otherwise trap hot air inside your home.

Weather Protection

Your roof should protect you during all seasons. The best materials have high durability, which reduces the amount of time and money you commit to maintenance and repairs. While there are many serviceable roofing materials for weather protection, metal panels stand out as one of the best options.

Metal offers natural mold, mildew, and water resistance. According to the Metal Roofing Alliance, it can withstand gusts up to 140 mph and has comparable resistance to hail damage as asphalt shingles. Metal is also non-combustible, so you never have to worry about your roof catching fire.

The Difference Between Replacing and Repairing a Roof

Roof replacement involves overhauling your entire roof, while repairs focus on small sections. The different project sizes mean roof replacement costs significantly more. According to Home Advisor, the average roof replacement in the United States costs about $8,000, while roof repairs cost a few hundred dollars.

It’s understandable for homeowners to prefer roof repairs over roof replacement. The process requires less time and money because roofers provide an isolated fix. If you have extensive damage, roof replacement is the better idea and will provide value over time.

    East Coast Roofing,Siding, did an absolutely professional job on my new roof. The salesperson was so thorough, climbing on top of the old roof,through the attic. There was room for negotiation and ultimately I was very satisfied. The workers … More came in the morning removed the old roof and replaced it by the late afternoon. They worked so hard. The team leader was exceptional. The on site manager was there all day supervising the work. I am very happy!

    Great service, walked through every step so I was aware of everything that would happen and knew what to expect. The work was done in 1 day and the only reason you could tell something was done was because of the new roof, no mess and everything … More was where it was before they came. Being a single woman I feel confident I will have someone to call who will stand by their product and workmanship. With so many services I will be calling on East Coast for my next home project.

    They also replaced my garage door and gave me a beautiful front door that I always wanted. When they replaced my roof, it was solar ready and now I have clean energy. This reduced my electric and gas bills enormously. Then without even … More being called, they remembered my broken garage door, they gave me a great price as well as a great discount. You can't beat their financing. I feel safe and taken care of. Any other projects I will definitely call East Coast. I would recommend them in a heartbeat and have. I feel like my home has guardian angels,

    Just had our roof done by East Coast. Right from the beginning we were kept informed about the process each step of the way. The estimate did shock us a bit but researching the cost of a new roof these days it was fair. They accommodated … More our schedule by coming out on a Sunday to provide the estimate. The salesman walked around our roof and took pics with his phone that he then uploaded to some service that provided a 3-D rendering of our roof, dimensioned down to the inch. Once we signed the contract, another rep from the company came out a week later to validate the measurements and talk to us about what to expect next. Once the materials were in (took less than 2 weeks, pretty good in this supply chain environment) they contacted us and set up the install based on our schedule. The materials and dumpster were delivered on a Friday, and the crew came early Monday morning. They completed the job in one day (tear off to new roof) and the dumpster was removed the next. We couldn't be more satisfied with the level of service and communication we received at every step of the way. Would highly recommend these guys and would use them again - but I think our roof is going to outlast us at this point :). Oh, and the 2 year no payments financing was definitely a bonus.
