Roofing

before-after-roof2

Your home is an important investment, and the roof of your home is an essential part of your investment. A quality roof increases your home’s perceived value and protects it from the damaging effects from water, wind, hail, debris and rodents.

When a roof reaches the end of its life, not only does it look old and worn, but it can cause an increase in energy expenses and costly repairs. If there are leaks causing interior damage such as mold, mildew and rot, this not only affects air quality, but this creates costly, unplanned and time consuming repairs. Failing roofs also cause decay and damage with exterior walls, sheathing and siding.

The roof of your home is much more than just shingles. A roof is a complete system of integrated components and layers that all work together to protect the interior and exterior of a home. The anatomy of a roof is designed to withstand the forces of nature outside while controlling the temperature and humidity inside. A roofing system includes wood decking, intake ventilation, flashing, ice and water barriers, underlayment, shingles, exhaust ventilation and a variety of shingles, to name a few.

CottageRoof&Gutters001 (4)A well-designed roof not only increases curb appeal, but the shingle shape, design and color can also accentuate and draw positive attention to your home. Enhancing the look of your home to have it stand front and center of your neighborhood is as easy as choosing a style that matches, contrasts, echoes, enriches or blends in with the exterior of your home.

A new roof can transform the look of a home and makes an important first impression. To determine your home’s roofing needs or if you have questions about roofing systems and our process, please give us a call today.

Ventilation

PeachDoorHomeReadyforGutters001

A healthy roofing system begins with good ventilation. Proper ventilation helps to prevent damage, costly repairs and premature aging caused by moisture in the winter and excess heat in the summer. Good home ventilation also helps to regulate temperature, reduce backdrafts and protect respiratory health by venting stale air and lowering emissions and indoor pollutants.

 

The purpose of ventilation is to strive for a good balance of air intake and exhaust ventilation to ensure that air flows effortlessly. By allowing outside air to naturally flow upward and out of the attic, consistent ventilation is achieved without energy consumption and provides year-round performance.

MiscRoof001 (3)Our roofing and ventilation systems also use the appropriate amount of attic insulation to enhance shingle performance and promote a cool, dry attic. By preventing moisture and condensation from becoming trapped within insulation, structural wood, shingles and roof deck, ventilation helps to avoid rotting, mildew, drywall damage, peeling paint and warped siding.

On average, people spend about 90% of their time indoors, and the atmosphere inside of the home has a major impact on health and safety. The lack of ventilation can contribute to respiratory health issues and cause concentrated levels of indoor air pollution. With good home ventilation, the indoor air quality is improved by supplying fresh air and balancing the pressure within a home.
