Protect Your Home
Your roof protects everything underneath of it. Therefore, we consider it the most important part of your home or building. If you are ready to take care of this project now, please see below for the different types of roofing we can help you with. We can help measure your project, supply samples so you are sure you are pleased with the color in natural light, find a reputable contractor to help you complete your project, and deliver the materials when it’s time!
If you are thinking about a new roof, but want to learn more about it first, let’s start by taking a look at signs your asphalt shingles may need to be replaced.
Signs that your roof may need to be replaced include:
Shingle edges are curled or shingle tabs are cupped.
Bald spots where granules are missing.
If your roof is at least 20 years old. Many shingles today are produced for durability but lots of factors can accelerate the aging of them.
The roof visibly looks old and worn.
If neighbors are getting new roofs, yours could be due as well. A lot of neighborhoods have houses that were built around the same time.
Moss growing. Moss can grow on roof surfaces that don’t get much sunlight. Because moss holds moisture against the roof surface, it can be more than a cosmetic issue. Over time the moisture can cause damage to the granules on the top of the shingles. You can brush the moss off, but take care not to damage the shingle surface, and be aware that it won’t prevent it from growing again. You may need to contact a professional roofing contractor.
Dark streaks. Airborne algae cause dark streaks on roof decks. While this may not necessarily harm the roof shingles, it is unsightly. Algae streaks can be removed using a 50:50 blend of water and bleach sprayed on your roof with a low volume garden hose.
It is important not to use too much water pressure because that can knock the protective granules off your shingles. You should also think about protecting your landscaping from the bleach run-off before starting this project.
If your roof shows one or more of these signs, but you are unsure about if it is time to replace it, we can have a professional take a look so that if you do need your roof replaced, we can help you get it done before it is too late and causes bigger problems.
Why should I replace my roof?
Maybe you are still unsure about a new roof. Please see the benefits of a new roof installation below.
5 Benefits of a New Roof Installation
1. Energy Efficiency
A new roof is a stronger barrier against the elements than a roof that is deteriorating. It can hold in winter’s heating and if a light color roof is chosen, it can reflect away summer’s sun keeping down cooling costs as well.
2. Manufacturer’s Warranty
An older roof’s warranty may have already expired. Depending on the material and manufacturer, you could easily pick out a new roof with a warranty that will last 25 to 50 years, therefore you can rest assured that your investment will last for many years to come.
3. Increased Safety
An old, leaky roof not only causes property damage, but can cause mold spores to form that can be breathed in by you and your family. Older roofs are also more likely to form ice dams and icicles that can cause safety concerns as well.
4. Higher Return on Investment
If you are looking at selling your home, a new roof can greatly improve the resale value of your house.
5. A Facelift
Maybe you are thinking about new colors for siding, trim, or your front door. Or maybe you’ve already made these changes. A new roof color that coordinates with your other choices can make the new look complete. The overall effect can create an extraordinary new appearance for your home.
Now that you are ready for a new roof, please consider the different materials and styles available and come see us to borrow samples to take home to see how they look with your siding!

Keep it Beautiful and in the Best Shape
Once you have selected the perfect roofing for your project, we will then connect you with a local, reputable contractor and have your selection delivered to your home! Once we have helped you complete your roofing project from start to finish, please remember the following maintenance tips to keep it looking good and lasting as long as possible.
- Clear debris, moss & algae from your roof. Leaves, twigs, and other miscellaneous debris tend to soak up water and hold moisture against your shingles, which can damage them. Your roof is designed to channel water away from your home, and excess debris can slow or stop this process. You’ll want to check for debris on a regular basis.
- Check flashings for damage, corrosion, or holes that may need repair or replacement.
- Loose or damaged shingles can be a common problem. Over time, high winds, hail, tree branches and other debris can take a toll on shingle roofing. Often, a little roofing cement may be all that’s needed to repair a loose shingle tab. If the shingle is damaged, you’ll want to have it replaced.
- Check caulking/sealants around the roof for cracking or other damage. Old, worn sealants should be replaced before water seepage causes problems.
