Brinkmann Quality Roofing Services Services: Residential Roofing
While the roof is one of the most important parts of a home, homeowners often give little thought to that space until they find leaks. By the time that a roof shows signs of leaking, it may already have some significant damage. A simple storm can tear off shingles and leave the roof exposed. As more rain falls, it damages the underlayment and eventually breaks through the roof and into the home. Different types of shingles are more susceptible to damage than others.
One of the more common types of roofing shingle is composite shingling. These shingles are a combination of fiberglass, asphalt and other materials. Composite shingles combine all the benefits of asphalt shingles with the low cost that homeowners need. Other types of roofing shingles include those made from wood and ceramic or natural stone tiles. While tiles have a highly decorative look, this type of shingle is the most expensive and most susceptible to breaking. Some homeowners may also look at installing a metal roof. Metal roofs are usually more expensive than a shingle roof but last for 30 years or longer.
Homeowners replacing an existing roof must also think about the differences between three tab shingles and architectural shingles. Three tab shingles feature tabs on three of the four sides. Those tabs fit together to keep the shingles flat against the roof. Architectural shingles, sometimes called dimensional shingles, feature several layers of material that keeps the shingles raised slightly off the roof to give it a more decorative look.
Repairing damage to a roof can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days. Roofers will need to get up on the roof before offering an estimate. Installing a new roof from composite shingles or another material will take a few days or longer.
