Providing Expertise in Residential Roof Replacement Throughout Maryland

roofers replacing an old residential roof in Columbia, MD

Depending on your roof’s materials, it could last anywhere between 12 years and hundreds. Most of us are going to need to replace our roof at some point. Whether that’s from ordinary wear and tear, old age, or even extreme damage from a storm, your roof is going to decline eventually. The experienced team of roofing company at Certified Inc. Roofing in Columbia is ready to give you a newer, more modern roof and bring your home back to its former glory.

When Is It Time to Have Your Roof Replaced?

Sometimes, a good quality repair is all you need to extend the life of your current roof. But other times, patching is just making the integrity of your roof decline faster and you need to invest in a new one. The factors below can give you an indication of when it might be time to install a new roof.

Water Leaks

Water damage in your home can cause massive problems. If you see dark spots or stains on your ceiling, that’s a sign that your roof isn’t doing its job. A single, small leak can usually be repaired, but if your roof is letting in water from multiple areas, you must take care of the problem and replace your roof as soon as possible.

Missing or Damaged Shingles

Missing or damaged shingles are a sign that your roof might need to be replaced. As we all know, the weather in the Maryland area can often be unpredictable. Not only can storms contribute to lost shingles, but they can also leave you with complete parts of your roof missing. If you notice missing or damaged shingles, call the Certified Inc. Roofing roofing team immediately.

The Age of Your Roof

Different roofing materials are meant to last different amounts of time (with the proper maintenance of course). For example, asphalt shingle roofs last up to 20 years and tile roofs can last up to 50 years. And if a strong storm hits, you may need a replacement roof even sooner. How old is your roof? If its life expectancy is coming to a close, you might want to think about calling us to take a look.

Residential Roof Repair FAQs

close

What is the difference between a roof repair and a roof replacement?

Even though these both sound similar, they are very different. Roof repair means fixing one or two small problems, like a leak, with patching. A complete roof replacement means removing your old roof and installing a brand new one.

Do the roofers need to come inside?

Usually not. When we work on your home, we can typically make all preparations and complete the work without coming inside. This means we won’t disturb your family’s activities.

Will I need to replace my gutters if I get my roof replaced?

This will depend on how your gutters were installed. Even if we have to temporarily remove the gutters, we can usually put them back on. However, a new roof is a great time to upgrade your current gutters because this prevents them from being damaged during the roofing process.

As homeowners in Maryland ourselves, we understand the importance of a solid and secure roof. We also understand that the decision to replace your roof is a big one, so we are happy to answer all your questions and guide you through the process.

    We had a great experience from beginning to end. The estimate of the cost was done in a friendly way, not a sales pitch, fully explaining what was to be done and the certifed quality that was to be employed. When we were ready to get things done, we contacted them for an updated quote, signed the contract that explaned in detail what was to be done. After giving the go ahead, we were scheduled in a short time. They did not accept any down payment to begin and finish the work. The roof installation was done in a day, with the roofing materals delivered the prior day. Instalation personnel were friendly and got everything done in a meticulous and professional way. The cleanup at the end of the day left everything in its place with nothing that needed any further cleanup.WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND CERTIFIED INC. ROOFING!!

    The Craftsmanship of the crew is top notch. I used them for a Cedar Shake roof on a historic house with a very steep pitch. Crew took meticulous care in the quality of the work. This included clean up. I highly recommend certified. Very responsive.

    Steve, the owner, of Certified Roofing gave us a reasonable estimate to replace our roof. Our house is 3 stories in the back and one story in the front with 2 skylights and a change in roof line in the front. There is a front door overhang that is also roofed--so not an easy installation. The choices of shingles was excellent.The crew arrived on time, was very professional, and did excellent work. They were led by Javier who was exceptional. They cleaned up beautifully. When a small problem occurred, the repair was made and Steve came out. This was last October. This week, 5 months later, we asked Steve if they could come out to reinstall a gutter guard that blew loose. They offered to do the job at no cost to us. We recommend them without hesitation. They care about their work and offer a great value for roofing.

    By the time I connected with Jay from Certified, I had already been through a few roofing companies. Jay was not only friendly, but very patient with a first time homeowner such as myself. Certified had by far the best warranty to offer us, and was willing and eager to work with our insurance in order to cover it. We had to delay a few times due to weather (can't be helped!), but the office was always very communicative. The roof took 1.5 days to complete, and the end result was amazing. We had quite the extensive replacement job, and these guys were top notch. They replaced it, and fixed errors from the previous roof installation along the way. A couple days after our install was complete, a huge rain/wind storm rolled in. Not only did we not hear the rain, but none of it got in, much to our relief! Thanks, Jay and the whole team at Certified!

    Great work and great service. Caught Jay giving an estimate to a neighbor and snagged his information.Jay initially walked around the house to get a general feel for the roof and scheduled a formal estimate meeting a few days later. Jay was incredibly thorough and took down all the needed information. Afterwards he sat us down to explain the exact process, the materials of construction they would use, why they chose to use them, and their function for the roof. As new homeowners, and knowing our roof was incredibly rough shape and well past its lifespan, we greatly appreciated this. Contracts were signed that week and the work was scheduled less than a week out. Day 0 was material delivery, Day 1 was the complete roof installation, Day 2 were new gutters. Everything looked incredible and made the house look brand new. Very happy with Certified Inc. and plan to use them for any new work in the future.

    I highly recommend Certified Inc. Roofing. Steve personally came to my home to inspect the roof with me and explained to me how they would install the new roof. Easy to select roof color and easy to get quote for replacement. Day of, crew arrived on time and worked steady & hard all day. Finished and cleaned up everything all in one day. The crew were nice, polite and professional. They delivered on everything promised and exceeded our expectations! Definitely highly recommended them!!!

    We replaced a 18 year old cedar shake roof with asphalt shingles. Extremely happy the way in which Certified managed the job. From promptly providing an estimate to installation the project was completed within 2 weeks ! The installation took 2 days. The crew did a great job with installation and clean up. I chose Certified as they provided with CertainTeed material and their pricing was within our budget. Will highly recommend Certified, Inc .

    Very professional and knowledgeable. Extremely please with work. Met all time lines and budget. Easily rank in top 5% of firms I have dealt with in Northern Va.
  • Avatar Maria Di Maria ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    A storm damaged our roof. The company patched spots where shingles had blown off and these patches survived a second storm. Then the company replaced our entire roof. Excellent company! Highly recommended!
  • Avatar Thomas Baek ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    Tim Thomas was a gentleman and a true professional. The foreman who inspected the roof provided valuable information and expertise. The work crew was professional and finished the project on time.
  • Avatar Melissa Holmes ★★★★★ a year ago
    We are in love with our new roof. The color was spot on and the gutters are amazing! My husband and I are thrilled to not have to deal with cleaning gutters and we are hoping to see improvement with our attic venting when the season changes. (Currently it's too hot to even think about going in the attic.) Removal and installation of the roof took less than 8 hours and the gutters were installed 2 days later. Juan was amazing with being a stickler for the details. He was gracious enough to come back out and fix a slight issue within a very reasonable amount of time. Now our house is perfect. Thank you so much!

    I had a new house roof with new gutters and then later needed repairs and new gutters on 2 horse barns , plus leaf guards on the house one side. Quotes were similar to another company but overall a better deal.Steve is excellent to deal with; there were a some problems but they were rectified very quickly, and he was very helpful in the process. The crews were very hardworking , and wasted little time even when extra supplies were needed as efficiently arranged for them so saving a delay.Delighted with the outcome, no worry about rain, hail , snow or winds on the buildings.

    Very pleased with the work of Certified Inc. I recently acquired a historic 1908 home and had all windows replaced. They look great, inside and out and flow seamlessly with the historic home. Craftsmanship is on point. I only had one issue with a simple sill that was not sloped properly, but these things happen in an old home, and Certified fixed it. Would recommend!
  • Avatar Robert Eckrich ★★★★★ a year ago
    Steve and Jay came out the day after we called to do the inspection and give us a quote. Within days of us letting them know that our homeowners association approved our application to replace the roof and gutters, they had us on the schedule for installation. Roof took one day and the gutters done a day later. Top quality materials and workmanship all around. The next door neighbors also remarked about how efficient the installers were and how they didn't cause any disruption in the neighborhood. They also did a fantastic job cleaning up; no loose nails or other materials left behind. A well done job all around.
  • Avatar Sean ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    My experience with Certified was nothing but positive. I had a severe roof leak and Certified was one of many companies to provide quotes. Jay came out for my estimate and walked me through everything. He even gave me some advice and help with making temporary fixes for an upcoming storm. After going through all my quotes, Certified was the clear winner. They scheduled my installation and got everything done exactly when they said they would. It looks great and I am super happy.
