FAQs for Residential Roofing in Salt Lake City, Utah

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about residential roofing in Utah.

Yes. It is easy to install new shingles on top of your roof's existing shingles in most cases. This is most optimal when there's only one layer of flat-lying shingles on the roof and the roof deck is in good shape.

Covering up existing shingles is a faster and cheaper alternative that doesn't affect your roof's appearance.

However, shingling over your roof is not always ideal. By tearing off the roof, you'll identify other issues that may stay hidden if you only re-roof. Re-roofing is the ideal time to look at other roof components, such as vents, for example. It's also important to check with your municipality to make sure local building codes are followed when it comes to roof shingles.

There is no flat price for roofing replacement because no two roofs are the same. The price of your roof will depend on multiple variables, including:

  • Debris on the roof
  • Condition and age of flashings
  • Cracked tiles needing replacement
  • Roof pitch
  • Poor quality or rotted wood
  • Other items on the roof, such as air conditioners, chimneys, skylights and solar panels
  • Materials selected
  • Roof size
  • Time and labor

Much like price, the time it takes to complete your roof job varies greatly. The pitch, size, shape and access to your roof all play an important factor. Utah weather can also affect how long it takes. A standard roof job takes about three days but every roof is different. Our SLC roofing contractors at Vertex Roofing work hard to effectively meet time frames.

We know that a roof project can be disruptive to you and your family. We promise to work hard to get the job done as quickly as possible. You can help prepare your property for our work installing your new roof in several ways:

  • Clear your driveway to allow space for a dumpster and trailer.
  • Take any valuables off the walls. While roofing doesn't usually create vibrations, it's a good precaution.
  • Put newspaper down under any vents in your bathroom or stove, as sometimes accumulated dust comes loose.
  • Put a cover on your swimming pool.

That depends on what kind of roofing you choose. Today's asphalt shingles are built to last as long as 20-30 years. Some manufacturer warranties only cover 20 years. The typical Utah roof lasts 30 years but the lifespan of your roof depends greatly on the weather and other conditions, such as tree debris and birds. Take a look at our roofing warranties here.

Having a professional roofing contractor inspect your roof is the best way to gauge whether repairs or replacement are needed. There are some telltale signs that an inspection is warranted, including;

  • Loss of asphalt granules (bald spots)
  • Granules in your gutter or bottom of your downspouts
  • Ceiling leaks
  • Mold or rot
  • Discoloring or cracks in interior drywall
  • Shingles that are cracked, decaying, broken, damaged or missing
  • Missing or rusted flashing

Multiple leaks are a good indication that the underlayment needs to be replaced. If you find pieces of shingle in your yard after a windy day, it's likely your roof needs attention.

In some cases, such as when there are multiple leaks any time it rains, your roof should be replaced immediately. Roofs can be installed in any season and in most types of weather. On especially hot days, roof shingles may only be applied in the early morning as the sun softens shingles and can make them difficult to work with.

While you can replace a roof yourself, it's not a smart idea. Our certified professional roofing contractors have the training and experience to replace your roof properly and quickly, obtain the necessary permits and inspections, and address any issues that may arise during the project.

Shingles are designed to endure all types of weather. Taking the following steps as cold weather approaches will help your shingles last longer:

  • Properly ventilate the roof
  • Install protection to prevent ice dams
  • Be careful not to damage shingles when removing from your roof
  • Avoid walking on your roof in cold weather as sealant bonds can become brittle and break in cold weather.

Here are a few tips to choosing the right roofing contractor:

  • Get multiple bids in writing with details.
  • Make sure your contractor is licensed, insured and bonded (ask for documentation)
  • Check with the Better Business Bureau to see if the contractor is rated.
  • Verify your contractor at Utah.gov.
  • Ask how the contractor will communicate with you before, during and after the project.
