Certainteed Roofing - Roofing Page

 

Purchasing a home is the single largest investment that most of us will make. The roof of our house plays an important role in preserving our house and maintaining its value in the resale market. The life of the roof depends on the materials used, the local weather conditions, care taken during the installation process and the level of maintenance applied to it and the roofing contractor you choose.

Asphalt and wood shingle roofs can last for 30 to 40 years, respectively.

Clay tile roofs have a lifespan of 20 years whereas metal roofs can

last for more than 40 years.

Do You Need a New Roof?

Why Improve Your House?

(Download Our White Paper)If you suspect that you have problems with your roof, or if you see any of the warning signals shown here, call us to schedule your complimentary roof inspection and get your free estimate. This thorough inspection will give you peace of mind in knowing, whether repairedor replaced,that your roof is prepared to withstand the harshest New England storms without leaking. And if there is a problem with your roof, catching it early can literally save you thousands of dollars in repair work later on!

If you see any of the warning signs above you may have a potential problem. But inspecting your roof from the inside is also very important.
The following is a checklist of problem signs you can look for during an indoor roof inspection.

 

    • Sagging decking between the rafters. If the decking is sagging or deteriorating, the decking will also require replacement when a new roof is installed.

 

    • Outside light that can be seen through the roof. This may be common (and not a problem) but it is best to have a professional make this determination.

 

    • Signs of leaking in the attic (dark spots in the wood, especially around vents, chimneys, and other holes to the roof).

 

    • Test dark spots in the wood to decide if they are old or current problems. If the spot is still wet, or if it is soft (test with a awl), the spot is a current problem. If the spot is dry and hard, it is most likely an old problem that has been fixed.

 

  • Signs of water damage or leaking (usually in the form of water stains, or sagging ceilings)—this could be due to an active leak in the roof or to condensation caused by poor roof ventilation.

 

If you observe any of the signs listed above, you need roof repairs or a new roof. Most often the cost of a new roof or replacing a roof is less than dealing with the damage an old roof can cause to your home.
So do not delay….call Today to Schedule Your Free Cheerful No Hassle Consultation and Estimate.
Note: It is critical that a roofing contractor inspect your roof system from the outside and inside. If they do not go into your attic to inspect your roof system, then you should reject them as your contractor as they could not possibly complete an accurate evaluation.

Cedar Roofing

Cedar Shingle Cedar Shake

Red cedar is the most regularly used wood in North America for the purpose of roof shingles and shakes.

Cedar shingles are sawn from wood blocks. They are tapered and generally have a smooth surface. Cedar shakes are split from wood blocks; they are less uniform in thickness than shingles, are sometimes grooved, and often have little taper.

The most important property to consider when buying cedar shingles and cedar shakes is durability, and its resistance to decay. Some woods, such as the red cedar, have natural durability and that makes it the most regularly used wood for shingles. Cedar roofing shakes and shingles also provide excellent insulation as a roofing material.

The most obvious features that distinguish cedar shakes and cedar shingles from each other are their unique visual characteristics. Cedar shingles provide your roof with a more tailored look, while cedar shakes supply a more rugged appearance. Shingles and shakes can be used on sidewalls as well as roofs and come in varying lengths, typically 18 inches for Shingles, 24 inches for the shake and in random widths.

Cedar wood for roofs is a very practical choice, producing a beautiful result in a roofing project. The strength and beauty of red cedar wood for roofs make it a great building material for most any home!

Our cedar roofing offers you:

  • Elegant Look – natural honey and cinnamon tones of cedar wood, which later mature to a seasoned and distinguished-looking silvery gray
  • Practicality – excellent insulation means cooler temperatures inside in the summer and warmth in the winter
  • Durability – natural wind and moisture resistance

Our cedar shingles provide your roof with a more tailored look, while cedar shakes supply a more rough-hewn appearance.

Your choice of cedar shingles or cedar shakes will depend on aesthetic effect personally desired for your cedar roofing. But either choice from our will enhance any property for look, performance, and value.

Modified Bituman

Modified Bitumen Membranes have the flexibility for accommodating stress. The process mixes asphalt with synthetic polymers, which “modifies” the bitumen. The added synthetics give the roof additional flexibility and resistance to environmental stresses, such as UV rays, ozone stresses, extreme temperatures and movement. These membranes are also resistant to heavy traffic, punctures, and tears.

Copper Roofing

Copper Roofing exceeds all possible expectations for beauty, durability and affordability in a premium roofing product.

A Copper Roof system is designed to look good on any building that would look good in shingles. Only better! Copper’s elegant simplicity works with diverse building types ranging from historic to contemporary and in settings both rural and urban. Their surface weathers gracefully and naturally to a green patina that both protects and adds distinction.

Copper’s longevity is legendary. Almost all of the copper produced throughout time is still in use. In addition to being 100% recyclable, most architectural copper produced today has a recycled content of nearly 75%. Thus, not only is copper the best choice to protect a structure, it’s also the best choice to protect the environment.

When installed properly, copper roofs last a lifetime, as they are resistant to corrosion and fire, and are extremely durable. Copper roofing does not require any decoration, cleaning or maintenance, because of the protective patina developed over time, which heavily reduces your expenses.

Poor Attic Ventilation Can Ruin Your Insulation, Destroy Your Shingles, And Raise Your Energy Bills!

back to top

Why Take Risks ?

It is estimated that 9 out of 10 homes in North America do not have proper attic ventilation. Why? Because most people are unaware that attic ventilation can impact the longevity of their entire home! For example, in the summer, an improperly ventilated attic can cause heat to build in excess of 160°F. This superheated air eventually penetrates the ceiling insulation into the living area below.

Types of damage that can result include:

  • Premature aging of your roofing system (“fried” shingles)
  • Warping, cracking, or breaking down of wood framing
  • Damage to siding, exterior or interior paint, and wallpaper
  • Higher energy costs

A properly ventilated attic can help reduce the load on your air conditioner by moving the superheated air out of your attic before it builds up and causes damage.

In the winter, various household appliances, bathtubs, showers, and cooking vapors can contribute to excess moisture build-up. Improperly ventilated attics will allow this moisture to collect and cling to the underside of the roof. There, it will condense and fall, soaking the attic insulation and reducing its efficiency.

Additional structural damage can include

  • Roof deck warping and rotting of the wood frame
  • Mildew growth
  • Buckling of shingles and felt

Proper Attic Ventilation

 

 

Proper attic ventilation systems allow a continuous flow of outside air through the attic (see illustration at

left), protecting the efficiency of the insulation and helping to lower

temperatures in the living space.

 

It consists of a balance between air intake (at your eaves or soffits) and air exhaust (at or near your roof ridge).

 

NOTE: The FHA (Federal Housing Administration)

 

recommends a minimum of at least 1 square foot of attic ventilation (both intake and exhaust)

for every 300 square feet of attic space. For example, if your attic

is 900 square feet, you need a total of 3 square feet of ventilation.

This amount is generally divided equally between intake and exhaust

ventilation (i.e., 11/2 feet of each), to insure proper air flow through

the attic.
