When it comes to installing new roofing on a home, there is not a more important home improvement project. The roof protects the entire home, and if the roof goes bad, it is only a matter of time before the rest of the house goes bad also. When you do the job, it is of utmost importance to use bonded roofers. Bonded roofers, insured roofers and licensed roofers give you the most protection in the case of an unfortunate accident.
If you are ready for a new roofing job, there are plenty of residential roof shingles to choose from in a wide variety of style, colors and price ranges.
Many homeowners choose the standard 3 tab residential roof shingles, while more and more homeowners are beginning to like the look and the curb appeal of the higher end Architectural roofing shingles. Architectural roofing shingles give the home a more upscale look while providing the protection of high quality shingle.A normal roofing job does not just include shingles for your home. A thorough inspection of the decking, or plywood base, is important to any intensive roof systems. Any rotted or damaged wood must be replaced and a tar weather barrier placed down prior to installing the residential roof shingles or architectural roofing shingles. Wherever there is a vent or chimney, flashing will be added or replaced to make sure there is no leakage. Most bonded roofers will do these things as a matter of course.
Finally, the home must be able to breathe. A home that is too tight will, over time, have serious problems. When replacing your residential roof shingles and architectural roofing shingles, Beltway Exteriors always makes sure a roof vent is included in the project. Roof vents allow the attic to be ventilated and allow the home to breathe, along with soffit and gable vents.
The choice of using bonded roofers, and either residential roofing shingles or architectural roofing shingles with roof vents for your intensive roof systems will all be considerations when it comes to finding out the total roofing costs.
