Connecticut experiences all four seasons, with cold, snowy winters and hot, humid summers. This wide range of temperatures, along with storms, high winds, and other weather events, can take a major toll on roofs. When it’s time to replace your roof, choose an experienced local roofing contractor who understands the climate challenges and can recommend the right materials and installation methods.

At Hammerhead Roofing, we have years of experience providing homeowners with customer-first roofing and gutter services, including Connecticut’s most reliable roof replacements. We use only the highest quality materials that stand up to New England weather, installed by our skilled roofing contractors. When you need a new roof installed properly by a team of roofers you can trust, contact Hammerhead Roofing for a free estimate.

What is a Roof Replacement?

A roof replacement involves completely removing your existing roof down to the roof deck, discarding old materials, and installing an entirely new roof system. This process differs from a roof repair, where only damaged sections are fixed.

During a full Connecticut roof replacement by our roofing contractors, we tear off and dispose of old shingles or other roof coverings, including underlayments. We then inspect the wood sheathing underneath and replace any boards or sheets showing signs of water damage or deterioration. If needed, we also replace any damaged parts of the roof structure, like rafters or trusses.

Once the roof deck is prepped, we attach high-quality underlayments as a protective barrier against rain/moisture. Finally, the new shingles or other roof covering materials are installed per the manufacturer’s specifications. We take great care by adding proper flashing around vents, chimneys, joints, and edges to prevent leaks.

Benefits of a Roof Replacement

There are many advantages to replacing your entire Connecticut roof system instead of just patching problem areas:

A clean, uniform roofline significantly improves your home’s appearance compared to mismatched patches and aging repair materials over the years. Taking this step can increase resale value.

Replacing an old roof with a durable new system manufactured from quality materials shows buyers your home has been well-maintained. The increased lifespan of the new roof is also appealing.

New roofing materials and proper attic ventilation can make your home more energy-efficient year-round, helping you save money on energy expenses.

Old roofs become brittle and vulnerable to damage. A new sturdy roof better withstands heavy snow, winds, hail, and other extreme weather events common in CT.

A full replacement fixes the entire roof all at once versus continual repairs. This holistic approach avoids dealing with future leaks as the roof ages. It also provides further peace of mind with new warranty coverage.

FAQ: Roof Replacements in CT

How much does a new roof cost in Connecticut?

Roof replacement costs up to $15,000+ for an average single-family house. Many factors like roof pitch, accessibility, materials selected, and cost of labor/permits affect overall job price.

How long does it take to replace a roof?

The total time frame is generally 1-3 days, depending on house size, roof complexity, and weather conditions. The Hammerhead Roofing team efficiently coordinates the full roof tear-off, replacements of any damaged sheathing, and installation of underlayments and new surface material.

What are the most common types of roof replacement materials used in Connecticut?

Asphalt shingles are a popular choice, given the variety of architectural styles. We also frequently install standing seam metal roofs.

When is it time to replace my roof?

Typical asphalt shingle roofs last around 20 years. Signs you likely need a full replacement include a roof over 15 years old; the presence of leaks/stains despite repairs; dark streaks indicating warped shingles; excessive loss of granules exposing felt; cracks or missing tabs on many shingles.

Will my homeowner’s insurance cover roof replacement?

If your roof is damaged unexpectedly in a storm, falling tree, etc., your policy may cover full/partial replacement costs minus the deductible. But the insurance company generally won’t pay to replace an old roof near or past the end of its shelf life. It is best to budget ahead when you know the roof is nearing replacement age.
