Residential roofing for Charlotte investors and contractors

Investors, contractors need top residential roofing experts

Residential roofing in Charlotte, NC

Homeowners in the Charlotte and Concord, NC area need to be able to find professionals in the field of residential roofing. They aren’t the only ones. If you’re a building contractor that doesn’t have a lot of residential roofing experts, you’ll want to hire some. And if you’re a real estate investor buying houses to resell them, you’ll want to make sure the houses you buy are in the best possible shape — especially the roofs. The first job of any house, after all, is to shelter those inside from the elements, and a house can’t do that job unless its roof is intact and sound. As an investor, you don’t live in the houses you own and won’t know right away if the roof on one of them leaks — and indeed they might be vacant, in which case no one can tell you if this happens. So a leaky roof can do a lot of structural damage by the time you find out about it. You need residential roofing experts you can trust in order to make sure this doesn’t happen.

Different kinds of roof

If you own a lot of houses with different types of roof, you can hire a lot of different roofers and hope they’re all honest and diligent, or (this is a better idea) you can hire one roofer and make sure they know how to work with a number of different roofing materials. They also need to be able to work on gutters and other parts of roofs. Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material, of course. They’re easily damaged, but also easily and cheaply replaced. Metal roofing lasts much longer, but requires special skills to install. Slate lasts longer still, but has the disadvantage that one of the top residential roofing workers can’t walk on it while installing it. Wooden shingles and shakes are also long-lasting, but have to be installed in such a way as to allow air to circulate underneath them — otherwise, mildew and algae become a problem.

Make sure the residential roofing company you hire to work on roofs you own has a good reputation with groups like the BBB, Angie’s List and various associations of building contractors. While you’re at it, talk to the people who’ve hired them before.
