Your home is your best investment. Your roof is the most important protective in your home. Let us help you to keep your roof in excellent condition.
Shingle roofs are one of the most widely used roof coverings. They are the leading choice for residential roofing. Consisting of individual overlapping elements typically made of organic-based or fiberglass-based material. Shingles are typically flat, rectangular shapes laid in courses from the bottom edge of the roof up, with each successive course overlapping the joints below. Shingle styles come in many shapes & colors. We offer Owens Corning Shingles which typically come in three styles: Specialty, Architectural & Traditional.
A flat roof is any roof that has a slope or pitch under 20 degrees, and is a bit different when it comes to how it is handled. The materials and process of installation is designed for a slower run off of water. This means typically the roof uses materials that provide a water proof membrane keeping water from seeping into the structure. Flat roofs will often have a slight slant that leads water to gutters that then moves any water to the ground. This makes keeping your gutters clear and working a high priority
During a severe storm, high winds will often lift the shingles and break the sealing strip. Then, after the storm, the shingles will lay back down in place and looks fine. If that portion of your roof is compromised, it must be replaced.Within a year or two you will start to experience leaking which will lead to further damage. That is why it’s important to get a roof inspection after extreme weather.
When hail hits your roof it will cause “degranulation” of your shingles. Degranulation is only visible on a close inspection by an professional roofer who knows what to look for. When degranulation occurs your shingles become compromised and the serviceable life of the shingle is significantly shortened.
There are many reasons why your roof might start leaking, causing you to call for repair services. It’s important to note that just because you spot a roof leak in a certain area doesn’t mean it came from that location. Water will seek its own level, and if your leak occurs at the top of the roof, it could run down the interior of your home unexposed long before it shows itself
Any roof over ten years old that has not received regular maintenance likely is in need of some repair. Fixing minor problems on your roof does not need to be expensive. In fact, instantly making minor repairs will save you from expensive repairs in the future.
