Five Common Roofing Myths Debunked

When it comes to roofing, there are numerous myths and misconceptions that can lead homeowners astray. At CML Roofing and Contracting, we’re dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information to our clients. In this blog post, we’ll debunk five common myths surrounding roofing companies, roofers, and roof repair services.

Myth #1: All Roofers Are the Same

This couldn’t be further from the truth. Not all roofing companies are created equal. Experience, quality of workmanship, and customer service can vary greatly. At CML Roofing, we take pride in our skilled craftsmen, attention to detail, and commitment to excellent customer satisfaction.

Myth #2: You Only Need to Replace Your Roof When It Leaks

While a leaky roof is a clear sign of trouble, there are other indicators that it may be time for a roof replacement. These include:

  • Missing, cracked, or curling shingles
  • Granules in the gutters or downspouts
  • Roof is over 20 years old

Ignoring these signs can lead to more extensive and costly damage down the line.

Myth #3: Roof Repairs Are a Quick Fix

While some roof repairs may seem straightforward, it’s essential to address the underlying cause of the issue. A skilled roofer will inspect and repair your roof properly to prevent further damage and ensure a long-lasting solution.

Myth #4: You Can Install a New Roof Over the Old One

In most cases, it’s not recommended to install a new roof over an existing one. This practice, known as “reroofing,” can lead to various issues, including:

  • Added weight stress on the roof structure
  • Potential for moisture buildup and rot
  • Decreased lifespan of the new roof

A professional roofer will always advise you to remove the old roofing material before installing a new roof.

Myth #5: Roofing Materials Don’t Matter

The type of roofing material you choose can significantly impact the longevity, energy efficiency, and overall performance of your roof. At CML Roofing, we offer a variety of high-quality roofing materials, including asphalt shingles, metal roofing, and more, to suit your specific needs and preferences.

At CML Roofing and Contracting, we strive to provide our clients with accurate and trustworthy information.
