Shingle roofing systems are more than what you can see from your front yard.  First, consider the physical structure of your roof and the climate you live in.  Not all shingle roof systems work on all homes or in all climates, so it is important to find the right choice.

Depending on your roof structure, you may choose to use a synthetic or organic underlayment material.  Both systems have advantages and disadvantages, but it really depends on thesystem you want installed.

Getting a ventilation assessment from a qualified professional is a must.  Ventilation plays a very important roll in the performance and longevity of your roof. 

Now is a good time to make sure that your attic insulation is still satisfactory, because it can easily be enhanced during the roofing process from the outside.


Once you decide on the right shingle roofing system for your property it is time to pick a brand of product.  

Most shingles have the same characteristics, but have some varying properties that you may desire.  Things like color pattern, wind rating, hail rating and even fire rating can be different from product to product.


Depending on your existing roof system, shingle roofing is typically the easiest to remove and replace.  Most jobs can be completed in 1 or 2 days.  

The delivery of material, along with a large trash receptacle, can be expected at your home days prior to installation.  

Our crews will protect your landscaping and walk through some minor checklist items about safety during the process.  

Once the existing roof has been removed, the wood sub straight will be looked at to make sure it is in good condition and ready for the new product.
