How do I know if I need to replace my Roof?
Is your roof nearing the 15-20 year mark? Are your shingles starting to curl, color, or blow off into your yard? Are there noticeable dips in your roof from damaged plywood?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should be considering a full roof replacement or at least calling Ready Roof for an inspection.
We invest in state-of-the-art equipment to better protect your house and to make clean up simple!
A new roof is far more than just new shingles! There are several different components that make up a roofing system, crucial to getting your roof to 25 years or more. Every roof is different and calls for a customized approach to maximize the lifespan. Our experts at Ready Roof will walk you through this process in a comprehensive way and explain to you exactly what type of system will work most efficiently for your home.
One of our core values is transparency. Every phase of your roof replacement is well-documented so that there is no confusion about what is going on up there.
Plywood replacement is stressful for homeowners and we understand that. That’s why at Ready Roof, we pride ourselves in keeping our clients updated throughout the day so that there are NO surprises at the end of the job.
Do you need a Roof Replacement?
A few points to review will help you determine if a roof replacement is right for your home.
Your roof is at least 20 years old.
If you have an asphalt shingle roof, you can expect to get anywhere between 20 and 25 years of service out of it. Is your roof reaching the 20-year mark? Schedule an appointment to have a roofer come out and take a look. Chances are, you’ll probably need to get it replaced sooner than later.
Your shingles are missing, curling, or buckling.
Properly fastened shingles are an incredibly important aspect of your roof, and if your shingles have gone missing, or they’ve curled or buckled, they can’t do their job. This means that water could leak into your roof, leading to water damage if it’s not taken care of promptly.
Sagging Roof? The lines of your home’s roof should be perfectly straight, and if they’ve started to sag, it’s time to get our Ready Roof team out to your home as soon as possible. Sagging can occur on water-damaged roofs, as well as roofs that are holding excessive weight, both of which will likely require a new roof to repair.
Deterioration & Missing Shingles
When your shingles start to deteriorate, it’s not always as obvious as it is when shingles are missing, torn, curled or buckled. However, you can get a good idea of what kind of condition your shingles are in by looking for shingle granules in your gutters. You should also look for dark or inconsistent colors on your roof.

Ready Roof’s Simple 6-Part system:
You’ve found Ready Roof and you’re interested in the process. Great! Allow us to demonstrate the easiest experience a contractor could give a customer. If you’re in the market for a new roof or roof repair, here’s a simple step-by-step on what to expect from us.
1. Schedule a Free Inspection
Now, a lot of contractors seem to have a different definition of the word “free” when it comes to inspections.
Let us reiterate; ROOF INSPECTIONS ARE ALWAYS FREE.
You can either schedule an inspection by calling (631)766-5656 or you can simply fill out a form here on the website. You will always speak to a human being and you will get an answer immediately.
2. Initial Consultation
We believe first impressions are paramount. Our specialists will arrive on time, in good spirits, and will have the utmost respect for your home, property, questions and concerns. During this walk-through, we will determine the best solution for your problem. No two homes are identical so this requires the trained eye of a qualified professional. We work diligently with our customers to make sure, at this point, the general scope of work is understood. Homeowners will be made aware of any urgent matters they may have not been aware of.
3. Digital Quote
Next, we email a detailed quote that includes the exact scope of work, materials being used, and labor involved with your project all within 24 hours of the initial consultation. You should expect to hear from someone on our team shortly after that for a follow up. Upon request, a paper copy quote can be delivered for those who prefer a more traditional exchange.
In some instances, homeowners like to meet with us again to go over everything which we have absolutely no objections to. We want you to have confidence in being an educated buyer!
4. Project Scheduling
Along with the emailed proposal, you will have received a form for an electronic signature. When you’ve decided to move forward, simply sign the quote and we will put you on the schedule for the next available day on our calendar.
Yes! we will accommodate any request for day/dates for our customers. We understand
you may decide to take off work to be home during the project. That’s why we are beyond willing to work with you to find the right day to start the job.
Weather permitting! We can fix any roofing problem under the sun, but we can’t control the weather. Sometimes start dates cannot be set in stone when there is inclement weather in the forecast. We will never tear a roof off on a day with even a slight chance of heavy rain.
We understand you’re busy. Your roof may not be the most pressing issue in your life, or maybe it is. Whatever the case, we want to maintain communication throughout this entire process so please expect a “reminder” email prior to the start date. We recommend a small punch list of items to make the project go as smoothly as possible. We will go over start times, when to move vehicles, and material deliveries.
6. Start Day and Completion
Finally the big day has arrived! For some this is a celebration. No more buckets under that skylight in the family room, no more algae-stained, moss-covered shingles, no more pulling into the driveway and saying, “I really need to call a roofer.”
For others – this is a very stressful day.
It’s no secret that home renovations can be a nightmare. There is a lot that can go wrong during a project of this scale.
“What if they destroy my Japanese Maple?”
“Will they move the wicker furniture set?”
“I hope they’re careful on the new patio”
“What happens if someone gets hurt?”
It’s okay to be either one of these homeowners. We will be there to celebrate your beautiful new roof with you AND we will be there to assure you that we are professionals and you’ve made the right decision by choosing Ready Roof.
