Shingle roofing systems are more than what you can see from your yard.  First consider how your roof is built and climate where you live.  Not all shingle roof systems belong on all homes or in all climates.

Depending on the type of roof structure, you can choose to use a synthetic or organic underlayment material.  Both have advantages and disadvantages, but it really depends on the system you want installed.

Be certain to get a ventilation assessment from a qualified professional.  Ventilation plays a huge roll in the performance and longevity of your roof.

Now is a good time to make sure that your attic insulation is in good shape, as it can easily be enhanced during the roofing process from the outside.

Once you have found the best shingle roofing system for your structure, it is time to pick a brand of product you want to use.

Most shingles have the similar characteristics, but have a few different options you may want.  Things like color pattern, wind rating, hail rating and even fire rating can be different based on the shingle you choose.

Depending on your existing roof system, shingle roofing is usually the easiest to remove and replace.  Most shingle roofing jobs can be completed in 1 or 2 days.

Expect the delivery of material and a large trash receptacle at your home a few days before the installation is scheduled.

Our crews will protect your landscaping and walk you through some minor checklist items about safety during the process.

Once the existing roof has been removed, the wood sub straight will be examined to make sure it is in good condition and ready for the new roofing product to be put on.
