What residential roofing experts can do for you

Residential roofing in Charlotte, NCServices of a residential roofer

Experts in residential roofing can do anything from installing a new roof to repairing or replacing an old one. They can perform an inspection on the roof of a home before you buy it, and can likewise make sure it is in good condition before you sell the home. If you own a home in Charlotte or Concord, NC, it pays to know a good residential roofing company.

If your roof is damaged after a snowstorm, your insurance policy should cover the damage. But first you need to have the damage professionally assessed. Write down the date and time of the storm, and get copies of 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.

If you are trying to pick a roofing material, they can give you useful tips, such as:

  • Metal roofs are more expensive than the more popular asphalt shingles, but they last 40 to 60 years with proper maintenance, making them a long-term investment.
  • Clay and concrete tiles last even longer than metal. Slate is also durable and highly water-resistant.
  • Wooden shingles, which are usually made from cedar, pine, cypress or redwood, last 30 to 40 years.
  • The chief advantage of synthetic roofing materials is their low cost.
  • Different types of sheet membranes are available for residential roofing.

In addition to the roof itself, there are various accessories that a residential roofer can take care of for you. They can, for example, install, clean and repair gutters and chimney caps. A chimney cap is exactly what it sounds like — a cap that goes on your chimney, which lets the smoke out but does not let the weather in. They can be single flue or multi-flue. There are also chase covers, dampers, smoke guards, exterior and interior cleanout doors and stainless steel or cast iron firebacks. If you have no idea what any of these are, do not be alarmed. A residential roofing expert can tell you which one is right for you.
