If you own a home in Charlotte or Concord, NC, you should know a good residential roofing company. Residential roofing experts can install a new roof, or replace an old one. If you are buying or selling a home, or worried about the condition of your roof, a residential roofing company can perform an inspection. If there is damage, they can repair it.
They can also talk you through the pros and cons of the various types of roofing materials. Asphalt shingles are the most popular. Metal roofing is a little more expensive, but lasts from 40 to 60 years. Clay and concrete tiles last even longer than metal. Wooden shingles (usually made from cedar, pine, cypress or redwood) 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.
Chimney caps and other accessories
In addition to the roof itself, there are other things a residential roofer can take care of for you. A chimney cap is exactly what it sounds like — a cap you put on your chimney, which lets the smoke out but does not let the weather in. They can be single flue or multi-flue. You may also be interested in chase covers, dampers, smoke guards, exterior and interior cleanout doors and stainless steel or cast iron firebacks. If you do not know what any of these are, relax — a residential roofing expert can explain them to you and tell you which one is right for you. Another aspect of residential roofing is installation and repair of the gutters.
If your roof is damaged after a wind or hail storm, your insurance policy should cover the damage. But first you need to have the damage professionally assessed, so you will know how much to ask for. 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.
