Q. How do I know if my roof needs to be repaired or if I need a new roof?
A. The first thing you need to do if you’re having a problem with your roof is call a licensed professional to evaluate the age and condition of the roof. If shingles are not missing or damaged in any way, it may mean you just need the roof repaired.
We usually get called out for a leak, and that’s when we do our evaluation. We have a 24-hour leak-call response. A leak can be caused by a sheeting nail popping out, a defective shingle, or poor workmanship around a vent. Once we do the repair work, there’s a two-year warranty on the work. If the repair doesn’t fix the issue, that money is deducted from the cost of your new roof, if that’s needed.
If we do an evaluation and decide you definitely need a new roof, then we write up a proposal and give you a free estimate on site. If you’re not at home, we’ll write up the proposal and send it to you in email.
We do all types of roofing—shingles, metal, flat roofs—and we do both residential and commercial. We’re also happy to do roof inspections and skylight installation or replacement. Workmanship warranty from Scott’s Roofing is five years for roof replacement, and warranty on repair is two years. Manufacturer warranty on shingles is 30 years for a 30-year architectural shingle.
We’ve been doing roofing jobs all around Central Florida for 45 years, since 1973. This is a family-owned business. My dad Bob was the former owner, I’m a second-generation owner, and my son, Tyler is the third generation. But family involvement in the business doesn’t end there. Aleetra Scott is my daughter in law, and she’s the office manager for Scott’s Roofing. In fact, Aleetra or Roben are available to answer any questions you may have any weekday between 9am and 4pm.
Scott’s Roofing offers this advice for those in need of a roofer, “If you don’t call us when your roof leaks, you’re all wet.”
