We tried to answer some of the more common roofing questions in this section. If you would like to submit a question that is not listed here, click on this link to contact us. We will be happy to try and assist you.


Why do I need a new roof, if it’s not leaking now?


Your roof has a limited life span and to exceed that lifespan that will only lead to bigger and more expensive repairs or replacement. For example, shingles that are exposed to the elements beyond their normal life span may have their edges curled. Once this occurs, the existing shingles may have to be removed, which is a more expensive roof repair job. Another way to tell if you need a roof is whether or not your neighbors are getting their roofs replaced. If your homes were built about the same time, your roof should need replacement about the same time – this is not always true but is a good indicator.


How do I determine if I need a new roof or repairs?


What is the first step in the re-roofing process to determine whether or not you need a new roof in the first place. The following “warning signs” will help you identify the potential for roof failure.

  • Crack slate or broken slate or tile
  • Curling of shingles

Consider however; that it is not the best of policies to wait until the last minute before making the move. To be sure, call Bismark Roofing LLC. at 708-534-9011.  We will arrange to have a Project Manager inspect the entire roofing system and attic ventilation. and then propose solutions that should be taken.


How much does a new roof cost?
