Builders have a knack for painting visual pictures. So if you’ve ever heard a builder refer to a home’s “envelope,” they might even draw you a picture of the roof, attic, subfloor, exterior doors, windows and exterior walls. Just as a paper envelope must be sealed well, your home’s envelope must be well-sealed, too. And it all starts with your roof, the most crucial component of the envelope.
If you’re considering replacing the roof on your Woodstock home, you will receive many long-term benefits, including improved structural integrity and protection against water intrusion. A little-known additional benefit is further insurance against health hazards. Since a new roof blunts moisture, it also blunts the growth of mold and mildew. And as anybody who suffers from asthma, allergies, or other respiratory illnesses knows, indoor air quality is directly linked to health.

How Do You Know When You Need a New Roof in Woodstock?
The following signs are typical of a struggling roof that needs to be replaced. Contact us right away if your roof is exhibiting any of these warning signs!
- Roof leaks or repeated dripping: Leaks pose a serious threat to any roof, as their damage can spread quickly.
- Mold damage: Mold damage isn’t only bad for your roof; it can compromise your health as well.
- Shingle granules on the ground or in the gutter: If your shingles are losing their granules, they’re on their way to failure.
- Missing shingles: If you notice missing shingles after a storm, chances are they’re old enough that the integrity of the roof is compromised.
- Dips in your roof: Sags or dips in your roof mean it is no longer structurally sound and should be torn down.
- Curling, cracking, or buckling shingles: Warped shingles are a sign of compromised integrity.
- Old age: Metal roofs typically last up to 50 years, but shingle roofing sees its end after around 20–25 years.
Five Steps to a New Roof During Our Woodstock Roof Replacement Process
Step One: 15-Point Roofing Inspection
Call Fowler Homes today, and we will come out to your house to provide you with a free 15-point roofing inspection. Our roofing inspection will cover all the major components of your roofing system from the shingles, flashing, and ventilation, ensuring that you get the best roof possible. This process also clarifies every service that we will provide so that you know exactly what you are getting.
Step Two: Clear and Precise Roof Replacement Pricing
Fowler Homes provides every customer with clear and exact pricing on every job we quote. We know some roofing contractors can be deliberately deceitful or confusing with their pricing; we work hard to be as transparent as possible so that you know exactly for what exactly you are paying.
Step Three: Choosing the Right Roof for Your Home
Asphalt shingles are an economical, go-to choice for many Georgia homeowners. But you’d be shortchanging yourself if you didn’t consider other options, too, such as cedar shake, tile, metal, slate, and wood. Fowler Homes will review the advantages of each option, answer any questions, and then find the right option for your individual needs.
Step Four: Scheduling and Completion
Unless a life-safety issue is involved, we follow a “first-come, first-served” policy at Fowler Homes. We replace many roofs within seven business days. We dedicate ourselves to providing timely service because no one wants to wait weeks while a roof leak ruins their home. After we help you choose the right products for your home, we will schedule you immediately.
Step Five: Final Walk Around and Payment.
Unlike a lot of roofers in Woodstock, Fowler Homes does not charge you any money until the job is 100% complete. We have heard of far too many roofing contractors charging before the job is finished and taking off with the money, leaving the customer stuck with an unfinished, dysfunctional roof. We take the time to do a walk-around your property to ensure you are fully satisfied before you pay.
