Do I need a new roof?

  • Does my roof have holes?
  • Is my roof missing shingles?
  • Is my roof leaking?
  • Is my roof 10-15 years old?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it is probably a good idea to get a free inspection from the professionals at Roof Doctors.

Can my roof be repaired?

Even if you don’t see roof issues yourself, an old roof or some with damage could become a bigger problem down the road and is prone to breakdown. However, a thorough inspection from a professional at Roof Doctors will be able to gauge if you need roof repairs or replacement.

The price of roofs varies for each home. A new roof depends on many factors including:
