    We at M&K know that when a customer hires a roofing contractor, warranties are an important part of the conversation. That is why we pride ourselves on offering Best-In-Industry Warranty programs with every installation we perform. For asphalt shingles, flat roofs, and standing seam metal, warranties vary based on materials. They range from 15-50 years for material warranties. We also offer a 3-year craftsmanship warranty on all of our work performed.

    The wear of a roof will differ based on climate, altitude, and the direction a house is facing. A general guideline to an asphalt shingle 3-tab roof is 15-20 years. Older architectural roofs should last 20-25 years. Flat roofs, 10-15 years. A new roof with proper underlayment and flashing should last 30-50 years.

    Siding should last on a house between 20 and 40 years, depending on external conditions and maintenance.

    We offer free estimates to any clients interested in roofing and/or siding projects on home. Any time and material work, or any thorough inspections, are billed at $175/hour for the first hour and $75/half hour for every subsequent half hour on the property.

    Estimates can take anywhere from 1-2 days, depending on the time required to adequately diagnose the roof and assemble pricing for repairs/replacement.

    New roof installations take anywhere from 1 day to a full week, depending on the complexity of the job.

    The correct order is to do the outside first – roof, windows, gutters and siding. Your roof will protect your new kitchen or new bathroom. If your new kitchen has a leak because of an older roof, sometimes it can turn out to be more costly than if the roof was replaced first.

    Older gutters are nailed in and the nails tend to start popping out over time which can cause the gutter to fall off the house during the winter once the snow and ice build-up. Gutter sealants last about 15 years and may be failing if there are leaks in the corners. Also, if the gutters are pulling away from the house, it may be time to get them evaluated by a professional to see if new ones are necessary.

    If your house has a larger or steeper roof, it might be recommended. Also, if you have certain trouble spots that tend to overflow the gutters in a storm, then you probably need bigger gutters.

    They help keep most leaves out of the gutter, but typically still require a gutter cleaning service once a year or so. The guards are most intended to protect the underground drainage you may have by directing water away from the house. Having guards on should stop the drains from clogging which can be an expensive fix as typically you need to dig them up either in your lawn or even under your driveway/walkway.

    Without gutter guards, at least two times per year. If you live in an area with many trees, you may want to consider quarterly cleanings, even with gutter guards.

    The best way to prevent ice dams is by having proper attic insulation and ventilation, however, you can help prevent ice dams by installing a heating cable on your roof and in your gutters. If you have an older roof, you may require an ice and water shield to be installed to prevent ice dams from backing up under the shingles and into the house.
