Roof replacement is a task most homeowners don’t look forward to. However, your roof is the best investment you’ll make as a homeowner. The 2022 NARI Remodeling Impact Report determined that homeowners recovered 100% of new roofing costs when selling their homes. In the exterior projects category, roof replacement recovered the most value.
Neglecting an aged or damaged roof leads to more costs and future problems. Water damage, health risks, animal intrusions, structural damage, a full collapse and fire hazards are all at risk. The technicians at Certitude will help you determine whether your roof needs maintenance or a new installation.
Common Roofing Problems
Homeowners shouldn’t wait for a major problem to schedule a roofing consultation. Small, neglected issues quickly turn into major problems. If you rent out a home, are planning to sell or if your roof is more than 20 years old, Certitude Home Improvements suggests an inspection to determine your roof’s condition.
Here are other factors to consider when thinking about roof replacement:
Most roofs have a lifespan of 15 to 25 years depending on the material, material quality, underlayment and workmanship at the time of installation.
Missing, broken, bare, curling, buckling, or cracked roofs signal necessary maintenance.
Leaks / Moss Growth:
Visible water damage in the attic or home signals a leaking roof. Leaks occur from storm damage, worn-out materials or age. Moss and fungi also signal water issues.
Storm and Hail Damage
Roofs bear the brunt during an intense storm or hail event. It’s important to have your roof evaluated after a major weather event to see if damage occurred.

Asphalt Shingle Roof Installation
Whether you are installing a new roof or making repairs, asphalt fiberglass shingles are the most popular type of roofing for sloped roofs. Asphalt shingles are affordable, easy to install, durable and available in a wide variety of colors. We carry three-tab and architectural shingles from leading manufacturers. The shingles can resemble wood, cedar or slate depending on your style preference. Premium grades of "laminated" asphalt fiberglass shingles are typically warranted for 50 years.
Benefits of Asphalt Shingle Roofing:
- Low maintenance - When installed properly, asphalt shingles require little maintenance & can be easily repaired if damaged.
- Affordability - The low material cost & long life expectancy of asphalt shingles provide unmatched value.
- Versatility - Asphalt shingles are available in an array of styles and colors to match any home.
- Durable Protection - Most asphalt fiberglass shingles have a Class A fire rating and excellent wind resistance.
Roof Repair & Maintenance
Roof maintenance limits the scope of repair jobs and preserves the condition. It’s important to make frequent repairs as necessary to preserve the lifespan of your roof.
Consistent maintenance will:
- Prevent leaks, drafts, and other exterior problems
- Stay aware of potential issues and fix them before they become major
- Prevent expensive repairs in the future
- Maintain appearance
By performing regular maintenance, you can keep your roof in good condition, saving you the hassle and expense of full roof replacement.

A helpful inspection gives key information about the condition of your roof. Make sure that your roofer also inspects the following elements:
Gutters and downspouts. Basements can flood and exterior details can be damaged if gutters and downspouts don’t move water off the roof and away from the foundation. Prevent this problem by making sure your gutters are free of clogs, your downspouts are connected securely, and any long gutter runs are pitched properly to minimize overflows.
Roof flashing. The roofing contractor should check the flashing around chimneys, vent stacks and skylights, as well as step and valley flashing.
Skylights. During a roof inspection, it’s also smart to inspect the glazing seals between the skylight glass and the aluminum glazing bars. Leaks in these areas can often be repaired with a special sealant.
Roof ventilation. Soffit vents and ridge vents rarely require maintenance or repair, but gable vents can give insects and rodents access to your attic if they are not properly screened. These vents may need to be inspected from inside your attic as well as from the house exterior.
Certitude Home Improvements is ready to assist you with all your roofing needs.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does homeowners insurance cover roof replacement?
Yes and no. If your roof needs replacement due to an unexpected act of nature or severe weather, it’s likely covered by insurance. Older roofs requiring maintenance are not usually covered by homeowners insurance.
Will a new roof lower my homeowner's insurance?
Yes. The age of your roof affects the price of your insurance coverage. A new roof may lower your home insurance premium by up to 35%.
Is a new roof tax deductible?
A residential roof replacement is not tax deductible. Installing a new roof on a commercial property or rental property is eligible for a tax deduction.
Does a roof replacement require a permit?
Many townships in Pennsylvania do not require a permit unless structural work is being done during the roof replacement. Check with your local government office for more information or give us a call.
Does a roof replacement include new gutters?
No. This is a separate service. Many homeowners choose to replace their gutters after a new installation.
I was pleased with the entire new roof process. The estimator was helpful, the estimate was clear, easily understood and the price was right. On the scheduled day the crew arrived on time, the job was done, roof looks great. I was especially pleased that although they removed two layers of old shingles, I found very little debris over the next week while doing yardwork. I would happily recommend Certitude Home Improvements to family and friends.

Totally professional. Great quality work. Fast service. Always available for communication. Owner gave me his personal cell number in case there were any problems. Not one problem arose. Job done in time specified. Highly recommended company! Company was not the most nor least expensive of 7 estimates.
- James B.
Certitude came to do the estimation one day after I called and that same day they sent me the detailed estimation with very reasonable price. They communicated well to me with the day and time when they will be there to replace the roof. I’m very pleased with the job they have done and definitely I will use them again.

Total professionals from the first sales person to the final cleanup. Work was excellent. Price was great. Each step of the vinyl siding process was completed on time. They even installed the rain gutters in a pouring rain to prevent it from running down along the foundation. We could not be happier with the result.

The workers were very polite and helpful .My neighbor had a small part of his roof repaired a few days later and it took days .I’m soooo glad Certitude replaced my roof!
