Whether or not you need a permit Once you know what parts of the roof you are going to need to be replaced the next thing you need to know is whether or not the laws and regulations for your area require you to have a building permit in order to replace your roof. This is important because if you need a building permit for replacing a roof and don't have one you can face some pretty hefty fines that will add to that all ready expensive project of replacing your roof.
The roofing of an establishment varies on different climates and the type of establishment that you have. For commercial establishments, they usually have flat roofs because it is the simplest roof to build; the simpler, the lesser it costs. The hip roof is commonly for residential houses; this roof has four slopes, which could be both square and rectangular in shape. On the other hand, an A-frame roof is commonly used for churches, cottages or other types of homes; this kind of roof serves as the roof and wall for the whole infrastructure. There are so many types of roofs. You can choose any of those for your house, but keep in mind the compatibility of the roof to your house.
If an unsightly roof (fungus or mildew stains or moss growth) is what is making you think you need a new roof, you need to learn more about what is under the stains or moss. There is not always a correlation to a dirty roof and it's life being over. There are most certainly roofs that will not withstand even the gentlest possible roof cleaning without sustaining damage that puts it in poor condition. Particularly with moss, as experienced in the Portland Oregon area, there are some moss types and infestations that cannot be properly dislodged without stressing a roof. If a roof is on the borderline to start with, such a roof is best left alone and the funds save for going toward a new roof.
In addition, if you plan on living in your home 30 or 40 years, you can expect that you will have to replace that roof at least twice during your ownership, plus the cost of repairing it between replacements which will end up costing more in the long run than having a metal roof installed in the first place. So it really is a matter of pay now or pay more later.
FLASHING If your roof has chimneys, dormers, and walls, then you will see flashing on your estimate. Flashing prevents water from seeping behind and under shingles, causing water damage to the structure.
