ICE & WATER SHIELD The purpose of a roof is to protect the home from the elements; wind, rain, ice, etc. In most climates, ice and/or water are a concern you can't ignore.
Wood Shake There are numerous shingles available which appear like solid wood as well as cedar shakes. Even though the actual wood shake appearance can be traditional and beautiful, additionally, there are asphalt shingles which appear like wood and they are a much more long-lasting replacement than genuine wood.
Exactly What Needs To Be Replaced When people talk about replacing a roof they may simply mean that they need to replace the shingles or tiles that cover the roof or it could mean having to replace the entire roof including some of rafters as well as replacing anything in between. So the very first thing you need to know about replacing a roof is exactly what needs to be replaced. This means that you will have to do a thorough inspection and check everything including:
SOFFIT & FASCIA Often replacing soffit and fascia will be recommended. Fascia - Connects the roof to the soffit, where gutters are attached. Soffit - Covers the underside of the roof overhang. Both of these play a large part in protecting the structure of the home.
Let's face it - the prospect of a leaking roof, particularly in the middle of winter, is a scary proposition. There is no arguing that a brand new roof will provide you with a greater sense of security than repairing a damaged roof far beyond its serviceable life. Because of this reason, many unscrupulous roofing contractors will use scare tactics to get homeowners to opt for a new roof replacement versus a repair on a roof that has much life remaining. A quick review of a few critical items will help you feel more confident if you should be seeking replacement or looking to repair.
