Roof Repair & Installation

Roof Repair and New Roof Services

A good roof should last you for at least a decade, if not two. Unfortunately, many roofing companies aren’t as careful as they should be, and in some cases roofs installed by inexperienced or low-end contractors can fail as little as 5 years. If you have to get your roof replaced, either because it has reached the end of it’s life or because of poor installation, you should make sure to choose the right roofing company.

Ridgeline Roofing and Restoration offers both roof repair and new roof services, including replacing your existing roof and installing roofs on additions and new construction. We offer commercial and residential roofing services in the Nashville, TN, and Birmingham, AL, areas. You may already know you need a new roof, or you may not be sure. Whether you call us for a repair or a new roof, our estimator and technicians will be able to advise you on what will be best for your specific situation.

Our Services

When you contact us, we schedule a time for our estimator to come out and give you a free onsite estimate and consultation. Since no two roofs are alike, we personally measure each one before preparing a custom estimate. Our standard replacement estimate includes removing the roof down to the deck, replacing any rotten roof decking if needed at an additional cost, installing underlayment and shingles. We also replace all chimney step flashing and counter flashing on brick chimneys, pipe boot flashings, and box vents. If your home has ridge vent we replace it; if not we can install it and refer a contractor to install your soffit vents if needed.

Once you make your decision to hire us and sign our proposal or notify us by email, we provide our “roofing information” sheet to help you prepare for the roofing process, and we’ll give you an approximate timeframe for scheduling. Then you will select a shingle color and style. We encourage you to visit addresses of roofs we’ve completed to see what the color actually looks like, plus we can provide samples as well. After shingle selection, we schedule the job for a mutually agreeable timeframe. If you have a specific date request, we make every effort to meet that date, weather permitting.

Once the work has been completed, we perform a final inspection before receiving your payment. Part of our service is meticulous ground clean-up – we understand the value of your property and therefore strive to leave your yard as we found it.

Popular Questions

  • One factor is the age of your roof. If your roof is less than 10 years old, most likely you don’t need a new roof yet.
  • Excessive signs of wear may also indicate it’s time for a new roof.
  • Other than the age or excessive wear, an onsite inspection of your roof by a qualified and trustworthy roofing professional is the best way to know for sure, especially if you’ve had repeated problems with a leaking roof.
  • No, the growth of brown or black algae on your asphalt shingles will not hurt your shingle’s performance. It doesn’t look very good but it will not affect the shingle surface. Removing the algae is optional and can be done using a bleach and TSP solution, but it must be done carefully to avoid damaging the roof and the plants surrounding your home. For example, never use a power washer on your roof surface!
  • Technically, yes. We don’t typically perform “roof over” installation. The primary reason is that without removing the old roof and inspecting the roof deck and flashings, we can’t replace rotten wood or damaged flashing. Therefore we can’t ensure a quality installation per our standards.
