Lelia Medina Roof, 2018-07-11 14:42:10. Climate The climate of your physical location plays a factor in what roofing material may be used. When looking at asphalt shingles, there are specialized "Cool Roof" or "Cool Series" shingles that are used in warm climate locations. These shingles reflect heat from the house instead of absorbing it into the structure. In a cold climate location, these shingles will not provide any benefit and in fact will increase heat loss and also increase heating costs. Normal asphalt or composite shingles work great in colder climates because they absorb heat and act as an additional layer of insulation and protection. When looking at your roofing project, keep in mind insulation and ventilation in the attic space as part of the whole project. A well sealed, insulated and vented attic space greatly impacts the overall efficiency of the roof.

Cupping and curling often are signs of interior ventilation issues that result in excessive attic temperatures. It is a problem you would want corrected with the new roof installation because it takes life off a roof that otherwise might have had more life remaining.

Synthetic Slate Synthetic slate was initially developed to offer the appearance and feel associated with natural slate, yet to be significantly lighter in weight plus more adaptable. Manufactured slate is surely an environmentally friendly selection since it supports the usage of recycled constructing goods and costs much less compared to natural slate.

Ridge vents come in several styles to match the home, shingle design, and homeowner's preference as to how much they stand out or blend in with the rest of the new roof.

Ice and water barriers allow proper water flow preventing damage caused by high wind and rain storms and ice build-up known as ice dams. It strongly adheres to the plywood roof deck providing a second line of defense to the underlayment. The barrier is applied to the most vulnerable parts of the roof. Depending on the type of roof this could be the valleys, eaves and rakes, or the entire deck surface. Contractors may also suggest applying it around chimneys and other areas where leaks are likely to occur.

Premium Roofing Shingles High quality roofing shingles are definitely the more sturdy shingle; possess more visual appeal effect as well as definition within the shingle when compared to the laminated shingles. These types of shingles frequently have a 50 year or even lifetime manufacturer's warranty.
Lea Robinson Roof, 2018-07-14 16:36:53. Compare the roofing material color to siding, brick and shutters. The color should be complimentary and not blend into the same color of the exterior of the house. If deciding between a few different colors, create a mock up with a painted board that is the same color of the house and an actual shingle (or other roofing material) set against it.

Cleaning the roof will most often help maintain roof life, specifically where growths such as moss could cause "micro-dams" on the roof and result in damage. Always be sure that the roof has adequate life remaining so that your maintenance dollars will not be wasted.
Arlene Witt Roof, 2018-07-12 13:42:26. You've decided you need a new roof. Several contractors have given you estimates. How do you know which is right for you? It is important to understand exactly what the contractor is proposing when making a decision on your roof replacement. There are usually several products/services included on most re-roofing quotes.
Audrey Salinas Roof, 2018-07-13 13:19:22. Built Up Roofs This is the traditional tar and gravel roof that many think of when envisioning a commercial flat roof. Basically layers of waterproof material are built up with layers of hot tar in between. On top of the built up layers is layer a rock or stone. Traditionally these built up roofs were made of layers of tar paper but newer materials such as fiberglass membranes have become available increasing roof life.
Haley Mullins Roof, 2018-07-20 16:00:05. Attic repair If you are suddenly noticing any leaks in your house, it may be because of your attic. Your house produces a significant amount of heat every day in winter, which escapes through the roof of your house. With time, this process weakens the insulation of your attic, and when the snow starts to melt on your roof, it leads to leakage from the roof. It's your responsibility to check the insulation in your attic on the regular basis, and when you find a leak, know that it's time to re-do the insulation. If you put in enough time, money and investment to re-do your attic insulation into something sustainable, you would face much less of these leakage and other roofing problems.
Marguerite Bradford Roof, 2018-07-12 13:42:27. First, you need to evaluate different criteria based on whether your suspicion that you need a new roof is based on either a roof leak or a roof that is dirty (stains, moss, etc.) If the primary reason you think it is time for a new roof is because of a roof leak, you need to clarify a few issues regarding that leak.
