Frequently Asked Questions

Roofing questions? Find the answers you need here.

A roof replacement is a significant home improvement investment. From researching the best roofing company near you to selecting a shingle color, numerous questions may arise during the process. Since a new roof will only get installed on a home once every few decades, most homeowners are unfamiliar with the process – and that is okay! Our team of qualified professional are here to gladly answer any questions you may have.

How much can I expect to pay to replace my roof system?

While the price of a roof replacement can vary due to a multitude of factors, you should generally expect to pay around $380 and up per square (100 square feet). Things like roof pitch, decking replacement, and optional upgrades can cause this number to go up.

How long does a roof replacement take?
Most roof replacements for average residential homes only take 1-2 days to replace. In some cases, our installation team can be wrapped up in as little as 10 hours.
What is the lifespan of a typical roof?
Shingle roofs are known to last around 25-30 years. Metal roofs can last about 40 years or more. Factors such as the quality of roofing products used, weather conditions, and installation methods used can play a role in your roofs lifespan. New technology in roofing products allows us to offer a 50-year asphalt shingle roof system!
What type of warranty does RainTight offer?
We offer a lifetime warranty on both CertainTeed and Atlas shingle roof systems. Our metal roofs also include a lifetime warranty.
What should I look for while hiring a roofing company?
When hiring a roofing company in Mobile, AL, it is important to first check for current insurance, business licensing, and contractor licensing. It is also important to check references and past work to determine if they have the experience and capability to do the work properly. Instead of bid shopping for the lowest price, compare the value that each company brings to the table.
Does RainTight offer financing?

Yes! We have partnered with Acorn Finance to offer home renovation loans to our customers. We understand that roofing work can be costly, especially if you are going for a full roof replacement. We work hard to create affordable roofing solutions tailored to your needs. Click for more info.

Garrison and Zack run their business with Integrity and professionalism. It was refreshing to deal with a contractor who wasn't trying to nickel & dime you or set you up for change orders. They gave a detailed quote and followed through on the statement of work. During the job, they found an unforeseen problem and worked with me to solve it in an honest, efficient manner at a more than fair price. They returned after a strong rain to check for leaks and to make sure there were no new issues.I highly recommend RainTight Roofing & Construction and will be calling them again in the future.

I'm very pleased with the work performed by RainTight Roofing. I hired them to remove and replace a three-layer roof on my 100+ year old home, and they did a tremendous job.I requested an inspection with Garrison, and he worked with me from the very beginning all the way through the completion of my new roof. He was very communicative and made sure to stay in contact with me by phone, text, or email - whatever I needed. I was made aware of all necessary licenses and certifications, so I felt safe trusting them to perform the work. Garrison even managed all the details of my payment, which was made through an escrow account, so I really had nothing to do! It was perfect!When the crew came out, they were also terrific. Everyone I interacted with was friendly and polite, and they did their best not to deserve me or my neighbors. Even though roof installation can be quite noisy, I was still quite comfortable working from home. Even my dogs remained placid throughout! Work unexpectedly spilled over into a second day, but it turned out to be no trouble to me at all. After the work was complete, all excess materials were removed, and my yard was magnetized to make sure it was free of nails - and safe for my dogs to romp around in!The icing on the cake is the roof's 50-year warranty! Hopefully I will never need it, but I'm very glad to know that it exists just in case. Overall, I am very pleased with RainTight's craftmanship and ease of service, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for roofing services in the greater Mobile area.

It took a while to get the shingles delivered, but it's not their fault. I understand it's hard to get truck drivers these days. The day after they were delivered, they got over here early and worked their tails off. They installed a beautiful 50 year roof. I'm more than happy with the end result. I also love the fact that they deal with the insurance for you to make sure you get what you need.
