Frequently Asked Questions about our Roofing Process

Algae or moss

There should not be moss or algae growing on your roof. If you notice dark spots, streaks, algae, or moss, then you probably have a moisture problem. The thick layer of moss or algae can trap in the moisture and damage your shingles during the colder months. You can try to clean the algae off yourself, but it’s typically better left to the professional roofing companies.

Leaking or water damage inside

Your roof is there to protect your home from the elements, and that’s especially true when it rains. If you notice that you have leaks in your attic or even your interior, then you probably need roof repairs. Some of your flashings might need to be replaced if the problem is localized. If your roof is really old, though, you should probably just get your roof replaced entirely.

High energy bills

Finally, you might notice that your energy bills are higher than normal. While your heating and cooling bills will fluctuate depending on the time of the year, you shouldn’t see a sudden spike. If you do, it most likely means that air is leaking through your roof. You can call roofing companies to address the ventilation issue in your attic so your energy bills can go back to a normal level.

Typically, your roof should be inspected at least once or twice a year. If you notice any of these issues during the inspection, it’s time to start calling roofing companies to get the problems fixed immediately.

If in doubt, call a roofer for an inspection.

Golden Group Roofing Teams completes 99% of roofing jobs installations within 1-2 day. However, the entire process from initial consultation to final walk through can take about 2- 3 weeks. In this time frame we are working to get your project permits approved, materials order, and schedule your installation.

At Golden Group, protecting your home is our top priority. We cover your home with black heavy-duty tarps that each hold up to 2 tons of weight. The tarps are strong and protect siding, windows and exterior, protecting your exterior from a single scratch.


We protect your trees and flower beds by placing plywood over them. We use heavy duty nail magnets to ensure all nails are picked up and your children and pets can play safely on the lawn after we are gone.

Great Question! Our Golden Group Asphalt recycling dumpster is usually a 15-20 yard dumpster and that’s where the debris will be deposited. The Dumpster will arrive on the property either the day prior or the day of the roofing installation. The dumpster company will place the dumpster in the safest position to allow access to the property to both the roofers and homeowner. The dumpster will be placed on wood planks to ensure the driveway does not obtain any damage. Once the roof is completed, the dumpster will be removed within 1-2 days.

When the Golden Group Roofing team begins your roof replacement work, it’s all about you. We work from 7am-7pm daily and will continue working on your home until our job is completed. The Golden Group team focuses on one client at a time when it comes to installation. I think that is why we have had the success we hold today.

Roof ventilation helps remove the heat that builds up during the summer months and helps reduce moisture buildup under your roof. This helps your roof and shingles last longer by preventing the rooting of the wood and curling or distortion of your shingles. Calculate the amount of ventilation your roof needs >

All too often, roof problems are discovered after leaking or other serious damage occurs. Periodic (twice-a-year) inspections can often uncover cracked, warped, or missing shingles, loose seams and deteriorated flashings, excessive surface granules accumulating in the gutters or downspouts, and other visible signs of roof problems. Indoors, look for cracked paint, discolored plasterboard, and peeling wallpaper as signs of damaged roof areas. At Golden Group, we offer Roof Tune Up packages year-round to ensure that you get your roof checked and ready for the winter months.

Not necessarily. Leaking can result because some flashings have come loose or a section of the roof has been damaged. A roof failure, however, is generally irreversible and results from improper installation or choice of materials, or from the installation of a roof system inappropriate to the building.

The condition and lifespan of your roof will depend on the type of roof you have, the effects of your local environment and the maintenance which the roof has received. According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, asphalt shingles generally last 30-50 years. Roofing product manufacturers offer a variety of warranties on their products. Take a close look at those warranties to see what responsibilities and financial obligations they assume if their products fail to reach their expected lifetimes. At Golden a Group, we will help you get the best manufacturer warranty by registering your roof directly with the manufacturer after completion and providing a registered manufacturer 25 year Craftsmanship Labor Warranty. Learn more about roof warranties from Golden Group roofing >
You should clean gutters at least twice a year. If you have many trees in the area of your home, clean gutters 3 to 4 times a year. Learn more about how to keep your roof and gutters healthy and long-lasting on our blog.

Yes they are. Roofing warranties are one time transferable to a new homeowner at the time of sale. Please make sure to let the new owners know to call in and transfer the warranty in their name so the warranty can stay valid and effective.
