Residential roofing Charlotte, NC starts with a good roof inspection. You should have your home inspected after a weather event like hail or a hurricane; after a roof installation to ensure it was done properly; when you are preparing to buy or sell a home; and as part of standard annual maintenance to ensure a safe and long-lasting roof. The roofing experts in Charlotte specialize in inspections, repairs, replacements, and color and style changes.
Off all the residential roofing Charlotte options available, asphalt shingles are the least expensive to make, easiest to install, and most popular. There are two kinds of asphalt shingles for residential roofing Charlotte: fiberglass and organic. Fiberglass shingles have a base mat of woven fiberglass, which is then coated in asphalt and covered in granules, making it waterproof, resistant to damaging UV rays, and overall more durable and strong. Organic shingles are made from felt that is recycled and saturated in asphalt, then coated in an adhesive asphalt-ceramic granule mixture. Organic shingles contain approximately 40% more asphalt than fiberglass shingles, and are thus thicker and heavier. They are also more expensive. Fiberglass shingles are also longer lasting and have a better fire rating. A single asphalt shingle, regardless of composition, measures 36 inches by 12 inches, and comes in one of two designs: three-tab or architectural. Architectural shingles have a contoured, multi-dimensional appearance with a sealant to enhance waterproofing. While architectural shingles are more durable, they are not recommended for roofs with a steep slope, since they are more vulnerable to rain and wind. Three-tab shingles have cutouts that make each shingle appear to actually be three. They are the more popular of the two styles. Over a dozen manufacturers in the country produce asphalt shingles, so your local roofing company can help you make the best choice based on your region and price range. Besides asphalt, residential roofing Charlotte can also be done with wood, metal, slate, or ceramic shingles.
