Roof Installation and Repair Buyer’s Guide for Bakersfield, California

Installing a new roof is a big investment, and a project you want to be done correctly from start to finish. Knowing what to expect ahead of time can help make a new roof installation project run more smoothly. This Roof Buying Guide will help you understand these things to consider for new roof installation:

  • Climate concerns
  • Permit
  • Contractor
  • Types of roofing
  • Life span
  • Unexpected costs

Climate Concerns with your New Roof in Bakersfield

The area of the U.S. where you live has its own specific weather conditions which can affect the roof of your home. In Bakersfield, residents can expect 272 days of solar sunshine and 36 days of rain. The humidity level averages 50 out of 100 with 44 being the U.S. average index. The higher the humidity level the better the comfort level.

City of Bakersfield Roofing Permit

Before a installing a new roof, apply for a permit from the City of Bakersfield. A permit is necessary to ensure the new roof is properly installed and complies with city building codes. To attain a permit, or for more information about getting a roofing permit and inspection for a Kern County property, visit the Public Services Building at 2700 M Street, Suite 570 or call (661) 862-5100.

Roof Contractor Selection in Bakersfield

Selecting a contractor is an important step in the installation process. Not only do you want to hire a professional, you will want to ensure he has the proper credentials. This includes a current license with the State as well as certification as a roofer and proper insurance coverage. You can check with the Better Business Bureau for any complaints or law suits filed against a contractor. You can also check the state licensing board to check on the status of a contractor’s license for free at the government website.

Next, you should request 2-3 estimates from your list of qualified, certified, licensed, and insured local contractors outlining the cost of the project. This should include roofing materials, flash lining, and roofing nails. If the existing roof must be torn off before installing the new roof, the cost should be included in the total estimate. Be sure estimates are signed and dated and include warranty and material removal fees.

Types of Roofing for your Bakersfield Home

The following is a list of some of the most widely used materials.

  • Asphalt shingles, are by far, one of the most widely used roofing materials due to its affordability, resiliency, and ease of installation. Asphalt shingles are applicable for most architectural styles.
  • Slate tiles look good and last for many years. The downside is the weight of the tiles. Your home’s roof will need to be structurally sound to accommodate the increase in weight.
  • Metal roofs stand out from the crowd. The material is available in aluminum, stainless steel and copper shingle roofs. A metal roof tends to keep interiors cooler and because they’re metal, and the roofing material is recyclable which is a plus when the time comes to replace it.
  • Concrete tile roofs and clay tiles add a polished look to the roof but the material is extremely heavy. Installing this type of roofing requires also installing a specially-designed frame. The tiles are long-lasting and non-combustible.

Life Span of New Roofing Materials

When you make the investment in a new roof, you want to know it is going to go the distance before fully replacing a roof. With this in mind, the following list provides the estimated life span for roofing materials.

  • Torch down, cold application, or hot mop: 7 – 12 years
  • Composition shingles: 12 – 20 years
  • Rock roofs: 12 – 15 years
  • Asphalt shingles: 15 – 30 years
  • Shake or wood shingles: 15 – 25 years
  • Fiber cement: 20 – 30 years
  • Metal: 50 years
  • Clay and concrete tiles: 50+ years
  • Slate: 50 – 100 years

Unexpected Costs When Installing a New Roof in Bakersfield

Unexpected costs may arise. Although you will need to have the roof inspected prior to new installation, the contractor will not be aware of any underlining problems until he begins work. Wood rot of structural beams or soft spots that indicate problems with the roof decking are two areas that should be repaired or replaced prior to the new roof being installed. If there are broken soffits or gutters, these, too, need to be replaced. And if the roof has been leaking and insulation is wet, you will need to fix the roof leak and the insulation should be replaced as the moisture can cause mold and mildew.

Because a new roof installation is a big investment in both time and money, you’ll want to have everything in place before the contractor begins work. This means having financing in place for the estimated project plus additional funds in case of unexpected problems. Also note, a new roof installation can take anywhere from 4 – 10 days, or longer, depending on the size of the home and any necessary repairs.
