Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)2021-06-08T20:41:02-04:00
1. How do I know when I need to replace my roof?2021-04-25T18:45:26-04:00

Sometimes the signs are obvious: the ceiling sags and water stains appear. In this case, call us. Fast. The quicker we address the problem, the better we can mitigate the damage.

In most cases, however, the damage isn’t obvious. A standard roof should last around 25 years. If you’re close to year 18, get a ladder and check your gutters. If you
see an accumulation of granules, that may be a sign that the shingles are ‘bruised’ and the fiberglass coating has been compromised. If so, call us.

We’ll come over and inspect the roof thoroughly. We strongly recommend that you never climb onto your roof to inspect it.

2. How do I choose a roofing contractor?2021-06-09T23:58:11-04:00

Maryland law dictates that every contractor should have a current MHIC license. Without it, a roofing contractor is not licensed to operate in Maryland. Our MHIC license is current, and our business and all our subcontractors carry all of the necessary insurance policies with coverage thresholds that meet or exceed Maryland state guidelines. Customer references are critical too. We’ll be happy to provide referrals since 98% of our new clients are referred by satisfied customers. We are a BBB Accredited Business and are proud of our A+ rating. For other important considerations, be sure to check out our blog.

3. Does insurance cover the cost?2020-07-01T13:28:43-04:00

Check your insurance coverage. In some weather-related cases, your insurance might cover the cost of replacement minus your deductible. If it’s not covered, be sure to ask your insurance agent for a reduction of your annual homeowner’s insurance premium. You should qualify for a substantial reduction.

4. Why does NDG insist on replacing rather than repairing a roof?2021-04-25T18:46:49-04:00

At NDG, we don’t replace shingles; we install roofing systems. If one area of the roof is damaged or leaks, the entire system is compromised. Repairing a damaged roof is no guarantee that it won’t leak. We don’t take on any work we can’t guarantee.

5. How long will it take you to install a new roofing system?2020-07-01T13:28:57-04:00

We work smart and fast. In most cases, our crews are capable of completing the project in 1-2 days.

6. What kind of warranty do you offer?2021-04-25T18:49:22-04:00

When we use the highest quality architectural shingle, it comes with a 50-year manufacturer’s guarantee. In addition, we offer a 10 year workmanship warranty, even though it’s not required by the State of Maryland.

7. How do I pay for it?2020-07-01T13:29:08-04:00

We accept personal checks, Visa, and Mastercard. We also offer financing at very competitive rates.
