    Roofing Contractors Near Me | BBB: Start with Trust - October 18, 2019 by admin

    When you have a leak or need a whole roof replacement, BBB can help you find accredited roofing contractors near you. Search this list to find an Accredited roofing contractor near you.

    The best way to determine whether you need a roof replacement vs. spot repairs is getting the opinion of professional. When a roofer visits they will want to know the age of the roof and will search for damage. A typical roof, made from asphalt shingles, has a lifespan of 20-25 years. Once a roof reaches this age, spot repairs may not make sense and professionals will likely recommend a roof replacement.

    Besides the age of a roof, a professional roofer will be able to look at the following signs of damage and advise whether spot repairs or total roof replacement is necessary.

    The most effective way to extend the life of your roof is through a proper and consistent routine of roof maintenance. Follow these preventative steps to help keep your roof healthy. If you find items of concern during your inspections, find an accredited roofing contractor.

    If your roof is damaged due to a storm, it's important to move quickly and get a roof repair contractor. This timeline will walk you through the typical process:

    Roofing Intelligence How to Install Metal & Asphalt Roofing - October 8, 2019 by admin

    Get Access to my 14 Part Video Series Today for Only $49!

    Hi, Im Chris Lutz, president and owner of Roofing Intelligence.com. Im glad you found my site, full of instructional videos which teach you the correct way to install metal roofing.

    If you are thinking about installing metal roofing or simply want to learn more about the process, youll definitely want to check out these videos. I have taken my years of experience and developed a straightforward, simple and professional system for installing this beautiful and practical type of roofing.

    This video series contains a ton of helpful tips for doing the job right the first time. Youll learn how to avoid common and costly mistakes that others make all too often. All you need to install your own metal roofing are basic construction skills and simple hand tools. Ive even included a section on selecting the proper tools and avoiding spending money on unnecessary specialty tools. Learn how to install a metal roof yourself, and save thousands on labor costs!

    For more than a decade, I have been working as a roofing contractor specializing in the installation of metal roofing on homes and businesses alike. I have installed hundreds of metal roofs throughout the Southeast region on every imaginable structure, from simple backyard sheds and mobile homes to million dollar mansions and commercial warehouses. My years of experience have taught me the right way to install a beautiful metal roof, and the avoidable mistakes that others commonly make throughout the process.

    These video thoroughly covers the basics of metal roofing, from measuring and ordering your materials, to cutting panels and flashing pipes. In most situations, metal roofing is simple and easy to install. I am more than confident that if you follow my clear instructions, your new roof will come out looking great and will protect your home or structure for years to come. Most importantly, the techniques I show you will prevent your roof from leaking, causing expensive and unsightly damage to your home.

    Hiring a professional contractor, like me, to install your roof would cost thousands of dollars on labor alone. However, it is unwise to attempt to install your own roof without proper instruction and knowledge. The cost of the videos is only a small fraction of what it costs to make one repair call to fix a mistake you made while trying to install your own roof without my professional system.

    If you decide to hire a professional to install your project for you, you can use this video to understand the process and ensure that the job was done correctly. If you are about to spend thousands to re-roof your home, think of the small cost of this video as a cheap insurance policy against costly leaks and the major mistakes that I see others making on a daily basis.

    With my video series, you can avoid unnecessary expenses and gain the satisfaction and peace of mind of doing the work on your own, and knowing that its been done properly.

    Type of Asphalt Roofing Shingles | CertainTeed - October 8, 2019 by admin

    Asphalt roof shingles are the most popular roofing material used on homes across North America, and with good reason. They are designed to protect a home through decades of weathering with minimal upkeep, and are available in hundreds of colors and styles.

    In additional to offering a variety of style choices, asphalt shingles are also widely available throughout the U.S. and Canada, and are easy to install, making them an attractive option for professional roofing contractors to offer to their customers. And while getting a new roof is by no means an inexpensive project, asphalt shingles are among the most affordable options available. In fact, if an existing roof deck (the structural surface beneath the roofing system) is in good condition, new asphalt shingles can even be installed over older shingles, reducing the need (and cost) of a tear off of the old roofing. Check with your contractor to see if this is a viable money-saving option for your roofing project.

    There are three major categories of asphalt roofing shingle products available today - strip shingles, dimensional shingles, and luxury shingles. It is important to understand the differences between each type of roofing shingle in order to pick the right product for your home.

    *A note on terminology: Asphalt shingles are also known as and composition shingles (or composite shingles). These are general terms for the same thing. The term composition is used because the shingles are a composite product made from either a fiberglass or cellulose mat, asphalt, and mineral granules. This differs from wood shake shingles or clay tiles which are made from a single material.

    Also known as 3-tab shingles (due to the cut of the shingle) or simply strips, strip shingles are the original and most basic asphalt shingles. They are made from a single layer of asphalt and have a very flat appearance that typically offers a slate look. Since they are made from a single layer, they generally weigh and cost less than other asphalt shingles. Prior to designer shingles being introduced in the 1980s, strip shingles were the predominant roofing shingle in the market. Today, strip shingles are used most often used by home builders that manufacture inexpensive homes, or by homeowners who are replacing roofing shingles on residences that already have strip shingles on the roof. CertainTeed strip shingles include products such as CT 20 andXT 30.

    Also known as architectural or laminate shingles, dimensional shingles are the most prevalent asphalt shingles. These products are manufactured with two or more layers of asphalt that are fused together for a thicker and richer multi-dimensional appearance, and are engineered to replicate the wood shake and natural slate roofing aesthetics. Dimensional shingles are typically heavier than strip shingles, and have improved warranty protection. CertainTeedsLandmark shinglesare a prototypical design for a dimensional roofing shingle.

    Luxury shingles are the highest-quality laminated shingles available, offering a differentiated appearance or functionality that outclasses that of dimensional shingles. Apart from being shingle heavyweights that offer premium protection for weathering, luxury shingles are stunning to look upon, presenting the highest quality, coloration, and dimensionality. These products offer the most realistic representation of the old-world wood shake and quarried slate roofing. CertainTeedsGrand ManorandCarriage Houseproducts are prime examples of Luxury roofing shingles.

    Due to modern engineering techniques and the dynamic properties of asphalt, manufacturers are capable of producing numerous specialty products that exist across all shingle types. These include shingles that fight algae growth, offer enhanced resistance to damaging hail, and offer cool roof color technologies that reflect the heat of the sun to keep homes cooler and can reduce the expenses of air conditioning. Depending on your location, choosing a specialty shingle can even reduce your insurance costs (e.g. - an impact-resistant shingle installed on a home in a hail zone). In addition, asphalt shingles are naturally fire resistant, making them an ideal choice for areas where wildfires are prominent.

    Roof | architecture | Britannica.com - April 18, 2019 by admin

    Roof, covering of the top of a building, serving to protect against rain, snow, sunlight, wind, and extremes of temperature. Roofs have been constructed in a wide variety of formsflat, pitched, vaulted, domed, or in combinationsas dictated by technical, economic, or aesthetic considerations.

    The earliest roofs constructed by man were probably thatched roofs that were made of straw, leaves, branches, or reeds; they were usually set at a slope, or pitch, so that rainfall could drain off them. Conical thatched roofs are a good example of this type and are still widely used in the rural areas of Africa and elsewhere. Thicker branches and timbers eventually came to be used to span a roof, with clay or some other relatively impermeable substance pressed into the interstices between them. Gabled and flat roofs were possible with these materials. With the invention of brick and cut stone for building, the basic roof forms of the dome and vault appeared.

    Two main types of roofs are flat roofs and sloping ones. The flat roof (see the Figure) has historically been widely used in the Middle East, the American Southwest, and anywhere else where the climate is arid and the drainage of water off the roof is thus of secondary importance. Flat roofs came into widespread use in Europe and the Americas in the 19th century, when new waterproof roofing materials and the use of structural steel and concrete made them more practical. Flat roofs soon became the most commonly used type to cover warehouses, office buildings, and other commercial buildings, as well as many residential structures.

    Sloping roofs come in many different varieties. The simplest is the lean-to, or shed, which has only one slope. A roof with two slopes that form an A or triangle is called a gable, or pitched, roof. This type of roof was used as early as the temples of ancient Greece and has been a staple of domestic architecture in northern Europe and the Americas for many centuries. It is still a very common form of roof. A hip, or hipped, roof is a gable roof that has sloped instead of vertical ends. It was commonly used in Italy and elsewhere in southern Europe and is now a very common form in American houses. Gable and hip roofs can also be used for homes with more complicated layouts. The gambrel roof is a type of gable roof with two slopes on each side, the upper being less steep than the lower. The mansard roof is a hipped gambrel roof, thus having two slopes on every side. It was widely used in Renaissance and Baroque French architecture. Both of the aforementioned roof types can provide extra attic space or other room without building an entire additional floor. They can also have a strong aesthetic appeal.

    The vault is a parallel series of arches used to form a roof, the most common form being a cylindrical or barrel vault. Vaults came into their greatest prominence in Gothic architecture. The dome is a hemispherical structure that can serve as a roof. Domes have surmounted some of the most grandiose buildings of ancient Roman, Islamic, and post-medieval Western architecture. Vaults and domes do not require a supporting framework directly below the vaulting because they are based on the principle of the arch, but flat and gable roofs frequently require internal supports such as trusses or other bracing. A truss is a structural member that is composed of a series of triangles lying in a single plane. Until the later 19th century, such supporting frameworks were made of wooden beams, sometimes in highly complicated systems. Steel and reinforced concrete have for the most part replaced such heavy wooden support systems, and such materials moreover have enabled the development of new and dramatic roof forms. Thin-shell roofs using concrete reinforced with steel rods can produce domes and barrel vaults that are only three inches thick yet span immense spaces, providing unobstructed interior views for stadiums and amphitheatres. In cantilevered roofs, a roof made of thin precast concrete is suspended from steel cables that are mounted on vertical towers or pylons of some sort. The geodesic dome is a modern structural variant of the dome form.

    The external covering of a roof must prevent rainfall or other precipitation from penetrating a building. There are two main groups of roof coverings. One group consists of a waterproof membrane or film that is applied as a liquid and that repels water by its utter impermeability after it has dried; the tar that is used to coat roofing felt is the prime example of this type. The other group consists of pieces of a waterproof material that are arranged in such a way as to prevent the direct passage of water through the joints between those pieces. This group includes shingles made of various materials, tiles made of baked clay or slate, and corrugated sheets of steel, aluminum, lead, copper, or zinc. Flat roofs are normally covered with roofing felt and tar, while sloped roofs are generally covered with shingles or sheet metal.
