Roof inspection from a licensed roofing contractor
To ensure you know exactly what is wrong with your roof, what should be repaired and whether or not a roof replacement is in order, you need a roof inspection from a qualified and trusted roofing contractor. At VIS Exterior, we specialize in residential roof inspection and will give your roof a thorough look.
While some roofs are so old and worn that it is easy to see the problem areas, others show no obvious signs of wear and require a closer look. Our experienced roofing contractors know where to look for problems and can spot subtle issues that can lead to big problems later, such as worn granules that protect the outermost layer of asphalt shingle. Over time, the loss of these granules makes it easier for hail and other debris to puncture the shingle and allow moisture to get in.
Other signs that indicate you need a roof inspection include curling or broken shingles, moisture in your attic, moss or algae buildup on your shingles and missing or damaged flashing. Also, if you notice your heating or cooling bill is gradually increasing, that could be a sign of problems with your roof.
Our roof inspections check for all of the following:
- Gaps between the gutter and the roof
- Shingles are missing, curled or damaged
- Wood appears rotten, curled or is sagging
- Granules from the shingles are gathering in the downspouts or in the gutters
- Chimney cap is damaged or missing
- Caulk is missing or damaged
- Protective boots around ventilation pipes are damaged or missing
- Flashing is damaged or missing
Use the best roofing materials on your home’s new roof
The best roof replacement services utilize top-quality roofing products from top manufacturers. As a trusted house roof replacement contractor, we know our work will only stand the test of time when we use the right products. At VIS Exterior, we choose quality cedar shingles and shake products that are treated and cut to exacting standards. Furthermore, we utilize asphalt shingles from heavyweights like GAF, CertainTeed and Owens Corning.
Asphalt shingle roof replacement
One of the most common products roof replacement contractors work with is asphalt shingles. From economical three-tab shingles to sturdier and more attractive architectural shingles to the top-dollar and best-quality luxury shingles, asphalt shingles are on the majority of homes across the U.S. And while they are among the least complex materials to install on a roof, it still requires an eye for precision to do it right.
At VIS Exterior, our approach to using asphalt shingles is to work with the homeowner to ensure the aesthetic qualities of the roof are met, such as color, shape and size of the asphalt shingles. There are so many different styles on the market today that just about any preference can be met. We’ll also make a judgment on which shingles are used based on the architecture of the home and if there are any issues that will require specially treated shingles.
Cedar shingle and shake roof replacement
Another common material that our roof replacement contractors work with is cedar. There is nothing like a cedar shingle roof replacement project to bring massive curb appeal to a home. Apart from the obvious beauty of a cedar roof, it also has the advantage of being resistant to the elements, has insulating properties and dimensional stability, lasts around 10 years longer than asphalt shingles, holds up to heavy winds and hail while aging gracefully.
Not just any contractor can handle a shake shingle roof replacement. It takes special skills and plenty of experience to install cedar, which is why you need to partner with a contractor that has proven talents in this arena. At VIS Exterior, we can point you to a variety of homes that we have reroofed with cedar shingle or shake, which will give you an idea of the talents we possess and how your home could look with a new cedar roof.
Whether you choose asphalt shingles or cedar, VIS Exterior will use the best quality materials and install your new roof with great care and expertise. After two decades of assisting homeowners with roof replacement projects, we’ve yet to earn anything but praise from our valued customers.
Hail and storm damage roof replacement
Storm damage roof replacement services will get your roof back in tip-top shape. At VIS Exterior, we jump to action when a big storm rips through the area and causes hail damage that can lead to extensive interior problems if not remedied quickly.
Hail and wind damage roof replacement work must be completed by roofing contractors that have experience with this type of project. Not only do we specialize hail damage roof replacement, we take it a step further and assist our customers in dealing with insurance companies.
Roof replacement financing options
Many homeowners will get assistance from their insurance company when roof replacement services are required because of storm damage, but in cases where insurance money is not available, roof replacement financing options are available to help.
At VIS Exterior, we work with our clients on roof replacement financing, which allows them to get the repairs/replacement they need today and pay for it in manageable installments. Pay off your new roof in 12 months and go interest free, or pay a reduced rate of 6.99% with our 60-month payment plan.

Taking on a roof replacement project is a big deal with many steps involved. At VIS Exterior, we take all the stress out of the process and thoroughly communicate with our customers through every phase of the project.
Here’s a quick rundown of what most roofing jobs entail:
STEP 1: Preparing job site for work
We make sure windows and garage doors are protected and that trash receptacles are in place to keep the jobsite as clean as possible during installation.
STEP 2: Removal of old roofing material
It isn’t always the case that older roofing material needs to be removed, but when it’s appropriate, our team will quickly and effectively tear off and dispose of the old material before installing the new roofing system.
STEP 3: Decking inspection
The roof decking is an important foundational element to any roofing system. Our inspection will reveal if the decking needs to be repaired or replaced.
STEP 4: New roofing material installation
There are a variety of roofing materials that can be installed and we’ll help you with those decisions. We have experience installing all types of roofing material, which means we know our way around the complexities involved in all of them.
STEP 5: Site cleanup
Our commitment to customer service includes making sure we leave a job site looking better than it did when we arrived. All project material scraps will be carted away and your foliage will be left unharmed.
STEP 6: Final inspection
To ensure every detail of a job is completed as advertised, we have established an exhaustive final inspection process, looking at every nook and cranny of the roof for anything out of place.No job is considered finished until everything on the checklist is accounted for.
Average roof replacement cost per sq ft
A variety of variables determine the average roof replacement costs. And while almost all roofing projects differ, there are some aspects you can consider that provide a decent estimate of what your roof replacement will cost.
An obvious variable is a size. Larger roofs require more materials and more labor, which adds to the expense. The design of the roof also matters. For example, a steep surface is more difficult to work on, which adds up to additional labor expenses.
Another expense is related to the number of skylights, vents, chimneys, gables and other fixtures on the roof that have to be worked around and sealed. A roof with an abundance of these features will require more labor and materials.
The ballpark figure that most projects are based on is for a 2,000-square-foot home undergoing an asphalt shingle roof replacement. Material and labor expenses will range between $7,000 and $10,000. If your roof is steep and/or has an abundance of features on it, you can lean toward the higher end.
