Since 1972, Pitzulo Brothers has been serving the Mercer County area as a family owned and operated roofing business. We take great pride knowing that we’re the Mercer County PA roofing service that residents call when they need help with their roofs. Today we take a look at some of your most commonly asked questions.

How can I recognize that my roof has problems? 
Oftentimes, homeowners and renters don’t realize they have a roof problem until there’s an extensive leak or other serious damage occurs. Twice a year inspections can help prevent these big problems by catching them early. We discuss how you can inspect your roof on your own here but we also suggest getting a professional out to look at it at least once a year, too.

My roof is leaking. Do I need to replace it immediately? 
No. Leaks can happen when the flashing on your roof becomes loose or damaged. However, if you have a complete roof system failure, this is irreversible. It’s impossible to know whether you need to replace your roof without calling us out to inspect it.

Can’t I just do the work myself?
Most roofing work should not be done by you unless you are also a professional roofer. You can actually cause more damage to your roof by using improper techniques.

How long do roofing systems normally last?
With proper maintenance, a roof can last up to 20 years. Some roofs like slate, clay tile, and certain metals can last even longer! An actual roof system’s lifespan is contingent on environmental factors, maintenance, material quality, and much more.
