Did you know one roofing product that works great on one type of roof may not work, or be approved for its use on another type of roof?
There is a litany of roofing materials and products that go into the making of a complete roof. They are all categorized for use with each type of roof for which they are approved and should never be used with roofing systems for which they are not designed. Their improper use could have a direct effect on the material warranties for the roofing system itself.
Your roof underlayment is the single most important component that goes into the making of your roof system. Everything begins with this integral product. Discuss with your roofer the different underlayment products and why he may prefer one over the other. Always consider an upgrade if he offers the cheaper materials first. We can provide in-depth information on the different underlayment products so that you are fully informed.
The type of roof you want will bring a myriad of different colors and manufacturers of the roofing materials from which you will need to choose. It is a good idea to drive around your neighborhood as well as the area you live in and notice the colors and types of products that suit your interest best. Write down the addresses so that your roofer can verify the names and availability of the roofing materials you prefer.
The different materials used on the different types of roofs come with various quality ratings. A lot of the better quality roofing materials will come at a higher price but not always. A full discussion of just what it is you want and expect out of your roof should be the starting point for you and the roofer to discuss in order to establish the criteria for the bid that he will present to you. A professional roofer knows how to present to you the best roof for you, the best roof available and the best roofing material you should get with the type of roof you want. He will be able to ball park the prices for the different types of roofs so that he won't waste your time with a type of roof you are not going to be interested in buying.
It is not always important that you buy the best materials for your roof. What is important is that you get good roofing materials to be used for the roof you buy. We can sit with you and help you to understand the limitations of some products, discuss the ones that will satisfy your needs and assure you of the ones that will exceed your expectations. Your roof is important and understanding the materials to be used is equally as important.
