Roof Installation and Repair Buying Guide for Long Beach, California

Whenever a new roofing project is on the agenda, plan ahead to be prepared for unexpected issues. Taking the time to get everything in place can save time and money, in the long run. And if problems do arise, you’ll be in a better position to have them corrected. A roof is an investment, and following these tips can help make that investment worthwhile. For information on available incentive programs, visit the U.S. Department of Energy site; for federal tax credits, the Energy Star website; and for financing, the Home Energy Renovation Opportunity (HERO) website. You can also estimate the cost of a new roof using this roofing cost calculator.

Financing Your Roof in Long Beach

Because a new roof costs thousands of dollars, financing needs to be in place as well as back-up funding for unexpected expenditures such as roof repair to an existing roof or insulation replacement if there are roof leaks to be fixed. You’ll also want to allow plenty of time for the installation which may take 4 – 10 days depending on the size of the property and any unforeseen problems.

Long Beach Climate for Your Roof

The region where you live plays a role in new roof installation as the weather should influence your choice of roofing materials. In Long Beach, homes have solar rays beating down on roof tops 287 days out of the year. Rainfall is approximately 12 inches each year spread out over 33 days. Fortunately, Long Beach properties do not have to deal with the effects of snowfall.

Selecting a Roofing Contractor in Long Beach

To ensure you’re hiring a state licensed roofing professional, check the contractor’s license status at the California State Licensing Board website. It is most important to hire a licensed, certified, and insured roofing contractor for the best outcome in professional installation. Ask for written, dated, and signed estimates so nothing “extra” can be added on after the fact. The estimate should include all costs for material, labor, material removal and warranty information.

City of Long Beach Roofing Permit Process

This is a requirement, and to start the project without one results in a fine. A permit ensures the roof installation is up to current building codes. It will be inspected. To get a permit for the City of Long Beach, visit the permit center at the LB Building located at 333 W. Ocean Blvd., 4th Floor. For information about building and permits, call (562) 570-5237. The center is open Monday through Friday.

Roofing Materials to Consider in Long Beach

When you choose a roofing material, it will need to be compatible with the architectural style of your home, and your climate. Your contractor can advise you on the best type for your property that fits your budget.

  • Fiber cement – this material is a blend of wood fiber, clay and concrete. It’s durable, fireproof, and has a life span of between 20 – 30 years. While the tiles contain cement, they are not as heavy as the standard concrete tile and doesn’t require the type of roof needed to support additional weight. These work with most architectural styles and they’re recyclable.
  • Metal roofs made of coppe roofing shingles, aluminum, or stainless steel are also recyclable. They provide excellent durability and solar reflectance resulting in cooler interiors. The material is light and extremely weather resistant. Homes with a ranch or contemporary style are also candidates for metal roofs. Metal roofing lasts up to 50 years.
  • Slate roofing provides a stylish appearance along with being easy to repair and also recyclable. It is recommended for areas that experience high heat. Slate is more expensive but has a life span of 50 – 100 years.
  • Clay tile roofs and Concrete tile roofing are the heaviest of the roofing materials and require a roofing frame. They are non-combustible, durable, reflect 50% of the sun’s rays, and are available in an array of light colors. You’ll see this type of roofing on homes featuring a European, Mediterranean, or Mission house style.
  • Wood shingles and wood shakes emote visions of bungalows and cottages. They are available in southern pine, redwood, cedar, and others. The difference between shingles and shakes is a machine cuts the shingles whereas shakes are handmade. Both have a life span of 15 – 20 years. These shingles usually carry a Class C fire rating which may not be usable in California. Class A shingles are fire-resistant but cost more. Check on both with the building code department for the City of Long Beach before buying the material.
  • Asphalt shingles are on an estimated 75% of homes in the U.S. The shingles are available in many colors, are easy to install, and cost less; but, they have a shorter life span, 15 – 30 years, and the material is not environmentally friendly or recyclable. They can be installed on most any type of architectural style.
  • Reflective roofing available through Energy Star is designed to reflect solar rays creating a more energy efficient environment.

With these tips and the expert input from your professional contractor, your home’s roof should be in good shape for many years to come. While a new roof can be a hefty investment, you’ll reap the benefits of not only adding curbside appeal to the exterior, but you’ll also be increasing the value of your home.
