The ALL-TIMATE Process
Is it Time for a New Roof?
In the Chattanooga area, owning your own home is one of the great joys in life. Having to maintain that home can sometimes take the fun out of homeownership! One of the biggest expenses that can arise from homeownership is getting a new roof installed.
How often does a home need a new roof?
A general rule is a roof should last 12-20 years, depending on the environmental/weather conditions. If you think it is time to get a new roof installed, contact us at ALL-TIMATE Roofing and we will send out one of our professionals to let you know whether the time to replace your roof is now, or in the near future.
Clear Signs of Roof Damage / Roof Replacement
There are a number of clear signs that you may need to repair or replace your roof. The most obvious is water damage or water leakage that appears in the ceilings of rooms. Rain can be forced, or driven, by wind under the shingles and through damaged underlayment. Shingles that are damaged or missing can allow this water penetration. Damaged flashing around vents, chimneys, eaves, and skylights can also allow water seepage and roof damage.
If you notice a dramatic change in heating and/or cooling bills, that could be another sign of serious roof problems. Over the years, your roof can be affected and damaged by all the elements like sun, ice, wind, rain, leaves and even condensation. Regularly inspecting and maintaining your roof over the years can help catch any minor problems and stop them before they become major roof damage. You should inspect your roof, or have someone inspect it for you regularly, to keep it protecting your investment and family for many years.

A shake is a basic wooden shingle that is made from split logs. Shakes have traditionally been used for roofing and siding applications around the world. Higher grade shakes are typically used for roofing purposes, while the lower grades are used for siding purposes. In either situation, properly installed shakes provide long lasting weather protection and a rustic aesthetic
A metal roof is a higher priced, premium choice of roofing material. Metal adds a nice touch and can help increase the resale value of your home. Some people even add accents of metal on porches and awnings to add texture to their home by using a variety of roofing materials.
