Every Spring, the Midwest is bombarded by storms, from Texas to Oklahoma; from Colorado, Kansas and Missouri. We all weather the onslaught of Spring's fury. If you're lucky, you have no damage, but if you didn't escape the the hail and high winds, you now own a storm damaged roof.
But My Friends Work For Beer?
So your residential roof has been damaged in a storm, and you have an insurance check in your hand. You're thinking about just replacing it yourself. You have a bother-in-law and some college friends that can knock out your residential roof in a weekend. You might save money, you might get it completed quicker, but is that going to be the best choice to protect your home and your family? Do you have enough knowledge and experience to replace your residential roof on your own? Is saving a few bucks worth the price of problems you might cause down the road? There's a difference between 'getting it done' and 'getting it done RIGHT'.
We Thoroughly Inspect Each Residential Roof
We inspect all decking for splits or breaks when removing old shingles. As a homeowner choosing to replace your own roof, you might not see all the sublte clues and flaws that we see because we replace residential roofs on a daily basis. Small indicators of a looming problem might be overlooked or seen but ignored. We do a thorough inspection with a well trained crew and then we replace or re-nail decking as needed and we clean decking or loose debris.
We Install The Proper Felt Paper
We install 15lb or 30lb felt paper. Quality roof deck protection, or “felt paper”, provides an extra layer of protection between your shingles and your roof deck. It helps prevent wind-driven rain, or water in general, from getting in under your shingles and causing damage to your roof structure or the inside of your home. It also helps allow shingles to lie flat and uniform which will result in a better-looking roofing job.
There's a difference between 'getting it done' and 'getting it done RIGHT'.
We Implement Proper and Uniform Standards for Residential Roofing Jobs
We install shingles with 4 nails per shingle, no more than 5 5 / 8 inches from the bottom of the shingle. Different roofing materials require different types of roofing nails, whehter you are installing a metal roof, a shake shingle or traditional asphalt shingle, we have 60 years of experience in knowing our tools and our industry. We'll make the appropriate choice for your residential roofing project.
We Avoid Shortcuts And Novice Cost-Cutting Tactics
We never use staples on fiberglass or asphalt shingles. It's silly to think that people would use staples, but you might be surprised what we find on old, non-professionally installed, residential roofs. You do not want to cut corners in Midwestern states where we experience the worst of all four seasons. Leave it to the professionals to protect your home and your investment.
We Follow Municipal Residential Roofing Codes and Manufacturer Instructions
We follow municipal codes and manufacturer suggestions when intalling residential roofing. City codes and manufacturer warranties require different standards for the number and placement of air vents on roofing. We have special formulas and calculations that assist us in determining how many air vents and where they should be placed on a residential roof. The last thing you want to do is void the manufacturer's warranty because you didn't do someting correctly. We stay abreast of all of our manufacturers rules and when we enter a community, we find out and abide by the local city or town codes. That's our job.
