  • Before settling on any specific type of roof you
    need to take into account code restrictions. This
    is another reason its wise to employ a trusted
    local provider.

5. Consider Color
  • When replacing their roof or performing repairs
    many home owners are already set on a color
    scheme. They arent aware that changing the color
    of their shingles can alter the aesthetic
    qualities of their building dramatically.

  • The color of your shingles wont just affect how
    your building looks. The color of your shingles

  • Homeowners spend more than 327 billion a year on
    home renovations repairs. While these numbers
    continue to climb they dont always get the best
    value for their investment.
  • With roof repairs replacement, its just as
    important to combine the best shingles with the
    best installation. Unless installation is done
    properly you may void a warranty.

    the full benefit of the new shingles youve

    installing them properly.

    DIY project on their own. Professional have the
    experience, tools, expertise to install your
    shingles correctly the first time.

  • Safety Concerns

    installation, most home owners arent aware of
    the risks of performing the work themselves.

    each year from ladder accidents alone. Add in
    issues with power tools and lifting injuries, and
    there are many safety risks to performing these
    tasks on your own.

    or commercial property or not, a warranty can be
    your best friend. Without the right roof
    warranty, you wont have the liability protection
    you need.
  • Too many home and owners believe they are getting
    an iron-clad warranty with their shingles.
    Unfortunately, they dont understand until its
    too late that there are a variety of warranty
    types for their shingles.
  • You want to be covered for the shingles
    themselves as well as the installation. If the
