Roof installer in Charlotte, NCWhat Goes Into Roofing?

Roof installer in Charlotte and Concord, NC can improve your home or business through their expertise in all things roofing-related. Your contractors work with numerous materials, provide consultations, repairs, and full installations, and also specialize in other essential exterior improvements, like gutters and siding.

Materials and Styles

Most residential roofing is made of shingles, while business roofing is made of sheets. Shingles come in metal, clay or concrete tile, slate, wood, asphalt, and synthetic, while commercial roofing comes in single-ply flat sheets. Each material has different benefits. Asphalt is the most popular because it is the cheapest to install and easiest to maintain. Metal is the second-most popular, with warranties from 30 to 50 years, made of steel and aluminum. Tile lasts for up to 100 years, and has a historic, old-time appearance, which can contribute to the retail value of your home.  Wood lasts 30 to 40 years, and comes in beautiful colors from pine and redwood to cypress and cedar. Slate is durable and nonabsorbent, and synthetic is best for imitating the aforementioned materials at a lower cost. Most shingles are designed in a 3-tab style, which gives your roof a multi-layered appearance. Slightly more expensive styles include architectural and dimensional shingles, which are thicker. Each material also has stylistic variations. For example, metal shingles can come in 5V crimp or standing seam. Finally, single-play flat roofing for businesses is made of TPO and EDPM membranes, comes in black or white, and is normally made in-factory, and installed fully adhered, making for a smoother, faster process.

Timeline

First, your contractor will assess the state of your current roof. They will determine if there is any interior damage that needs to be addressed, and consult with you about your design ideas. They can also provide inspections for insurance claims if you experience weather-related damage or from rain, branches, hail, and more, as well as attic leaks. Note that it is always a good idea to have the roof installed when you are considering buying a home. After inspection and consultation, your contractors will remove your existing roofing materials and install the new ones, as well as any related products, like gutters. They will clear the area afterwards of any debris, and meet with you again to ensure your satisfaction. The complete process can take one to three days, from 7am to dusk, depending on the pitch, size, and facets of your roof, as well as inclement or unsafe weather.
