The services of a residential roofing company are essential for anyone who owns a home. Residential roofing experts can install a new roof, remove an old one and perform any level of repairs from replacement of individual shingles to replacement of the entire roof. If you are buying or selling a home, or worried about the condition of your roof for some other reason, a residential roofing company can inspect the roof and let you know what shape it is in. If there is damage, they can repair it.
They can also explain the advantages and disadvantages of the various types of roofing materials. Asphalt shingles are more popular than any other. Metal roofing is more expensive than asphalt, but lasts from 40 to 60 years and can be made to look like almost any other material. Clay and concrete tiles last even longer than metal. Wooden shingles, which are usually made from pine, cedar, redwood or cypress) last from 30 to 40 years. Slate is durable and highly water-resistant. Synthetic roofing materials are particularly inexpensive. There are also different types of sheet membranes available for residential roofing.
In addition to the roof itself, a residential roofing company can install, repair and replace the various accessories of your roof. One of these is the chimney cap, a cover you install over the top your chimney to allow the smoke to flow out while keeping rain and snow from falling down your chimney. They can be single flue or multi-flue. A residential roofing company can also install, clean and repair the gutters.
Roof damaged from hail storm
If your roof is damaged after a wind or hail storm, a good insurance policy should cover the cost of repair. But first you will need to know how much that cost is going to be. This means having the damage professionally assessed by a residential roofing company. Write down the date and time of the storm, and note any coverage of it in your local newspaper. When the claims adjuster comes to look at the damage, make sure you have some residential roofing experts of your own on hand to provide estimates for you and the adjuster. They can also bill your insurance carrier directly.
