Asphalt Shingles, Flat Roofs & Duradek Vinyl Roofing
Asphalt Shingle Roofs
The most popular roofing material is waterproof asphalt shingles, which are light, relatively inexpensive and easy to install. Costs can vary due to the color, quality and style of the shingles. Improve Group Roofing is your reliable choice to help you choose the right shingles at the best price! Asphalt shingles still dominate the US roofing industry, accounting for more than 70% of all residential, sloped roofs including new construction and replacements. See some of the variations listed below.
Flat roofs are a familiar sight throughout North America. Any typical mall, warehouse, apartment building or school usually features a flat roof. This roof type is easier to install over large surfaces and is the most common choice for commercial, industrial and institutional buildings.
Duradek Vinyl Decking
Duradek is an innovative product that can be applied to your balcony or deck to make it watertight. Duradek can be used to cover existing decks, balconies, and flat roofs and turn them into a walkable surface. If you have a deck and would like to have dry storage space below it, Duradek is an ideal solution. It can also be used to transform a flat roof into an outdoor living space. Improve Group Roofing is a certified installer of Duradek.
Here are some signs that will tell you it might be time to replace your roof:
• Missing shingles
• Cracked shingles
• Granules in the gutters
• Moss and algae growing
• Water stains in the attic
• Sagging roof line
If you see any of these signs, contact us right away to schedule a roof inspection.
Many factors may influence the cost of a new roof—labor, materials, roof size, home location and more. Some of these costs are dictated by the size of your roof, local building code requirements and the extent of any existing damage.
Having a reputable, professional roofing contractor like Improve Group Roofing is your best guarantee of replacing your roof with quality materials and at a price within your budget.
A typical asphalt 3-tab shingled roof will last about 20 years, if it is properly cared for. A roof with asphalt architectural shingles will last from 30 to 50 years – again if it is properly cared for. Improve Group Roofing can help you decide which type of shingles are best for you and your home.
Having your roof inspected once a year is a good way to learn about current issues and potential problems so you can address both before any emergency situations. The two most obvious signs that your roof is damaged and should be looked at by a professional are leaks and blown off shingles. However, even if there are no signs that you need to have your roof repaired or replaced, a more thorough inspection may reveal damage that is not apparent to the untrained eye. So, scheduling an annual roof inspection is always a smart idea. Contact us to schedule a roof inspection.
Architectural shingles are high-quality dimensional or laminated shingles. They are made from a fiberglass mat base with ceramic coated minerals that are embedded in water-resistant asphalt. Several layers of material may be used to create the shingles. The shingles are thicker and offer different color variations to add three-dimensional light and shadows to the roof.
Architectural shingles cost about 20% more than flat three-tab shingles, but they last longer and add more value to your home. They were originally designed for larger, high-end homes, but they work on any building with a peaked or slanted roof. Architectural shingles have 25-50 year warranties.
