Your Roof Matters
Your roof protects your home from everything Mother Nature can throw at you. But your roof needs to be in perfect condition to do its job. Even one missing or damaged shingle will allow water into your home. If you notice a single damaged shingle, it’s time to repair or replace your roof.
Replacing your roof can be a daunting decision. But it’s a major investment into your home. It can also give you a chance to start fresh with a new look for the exterior of your home. Choosing the color and shape of your shingle is a great way to express your house’s personality and increase the value of your home. Not only that, a well-fabricated roof protects your home from leaks. Ignoring a leak can lead to mold and roof deck rot.
A roof is more than just shingles. It’s a complete system of integrated components that work together to protect your home. Your roof is comprised of intake and exhaust ventilation products, which help replace and draw air out of the attic. This protects the roofing system from heat and moisture damage. They also keep the attic temperature closer to the outside temperature. This helps eliminate problems such as ice damming, which is when melting and refreezing water gets integrated in your shingles. Ice damming can cause your shingles to deteriorate prematurely. Your roof also has a layer of self-sealing ice and water barriers. This layer is designed to prevent water from pooling in places where water has a tendency to collect. In the colder months, this also prevents damage from ice damming. Your roof also has layers of starter shingles and underlayment products that prevent shingle blow-offs and guard against wind-driven rain. Finally, you have hip and ridge shingles, which finish the look of your roof and are designed to compliment the rest of your shingle.
