At American Roofing & Waterproofing, LLC, we are among the best in roofing companies in the area. Our team of roofers has the experience and knowledge to ensure that your roofing project is completed efficiently, on time, and on budget. Whether your home has a leaky roof or needs a new roof replacement, we can get the job done!
While you may be able to see that your roof is missing some shingles or that it’s old and needs to be replaced, you might not notice other sneakier issues that can be expensive or dangerous.
Some things, such as rotten beams or sodden shingles aren’t as apparent as a leak, leaving you with damage that continues to erode at your roof and your home. Mold, holes, or completely destroyed beams pose a risk to you and your family, and they’re far more expensive to repair than paying to fix the initial problem properly would have been.
Just because you have a few damaged shingles or a bit of a leak, don’t automatically assume that you need a whole new roof. If your roof has been properly installed and is younger than 15 or 20 years old, it may get by with repairs rather than a full replacement. At American Roofing & Waterproofing, we know the difference and will do our best to save you time and money wherever possible while maintaining the best quality roof possible.
Why Do I Need a Ridge Vent? A ridge vent is an important part of a home’s roofing system. Installed at the peak of a sloped roof, the ridge vent allows damp, warm air to escape from the attic. A properly installed ridge vent increases energy efficiency and prolongs the life of your roof.
A roof replacement for your home will usually last about two days. We spend the first day removing the existing roof from your home. We typically spend the second day installing your new roof. Depending on the size of the roof and some special circumstances, it may take an extra day or two, but it almost never goes beyond five days.
Synthetic underlay is much lighter than felt underlay; therefore, using synthetic as an effective water barrier adds less weight to the roof than an asphalt felt underlay. … Synthetic underlayment maintains its integrity in cold (and wet!) weather, while asphalt tends to wrinkle when wet and crack when cold.
