One of the most common problems with residential roofing, in general, is roof leakage. Only highly experienced companies will be able to install “the perfect” roof. So always work with companies that have several years of experience in the industry and companies that have a good reputation. Do your homework and read what past customers have to say about the various residential roofing companies in your area.

Architectural Shingles

Architectural shingles have a number of different looks and color blends, giving the roof a "layered" look. These laminated shingles weigh more and are stronger than economy shingles. As a result, they offer a greater degree of wind, tear and blow-off resistance in addition to greater value and longer warranties. Most are available with fungus resistance.

Three-Tab Shingles

These are the most common type of shingles on the market. They have a very flat appearance and are what most people picture when they think of the word "shingle." They are available in two basic categories: 20 and 25 years. The 25-year shingle is available with fungus resistance to keep the black streaks off of the roof.

What to do if you have or think you have storm damage to your roof

If given the opportunity, take photographs of the hail on the ground or on the roof. Also, make a note of the date of the hail/wind storm. Call your insurance company to inspect. A contractor need not be present. There are some rules of thumb regarding roof replacement vs repair after a hail event, and generally, this is recognized as 10 impact marks per 10 square feet. However, every insurance company has their own rules and guidelines. Don't always accept the insurance company's first settlement. Often times, we can review the insurance company's estimation and find various items that may have been left out. Adjusters are also human and can sometimes make mistakes on measurements, therefore all of this should be checked for accuracy by a competent roofing contractor after the insurance company has inspected.

Protect Your Rights

Beware of storm chasers. There is no doubt, if the storm is severe enough, the "Storm Chasers" will begin to knock on your door or generally harass you. Don't sign anything. Many storm chasers will "con" trusting property owners into agreeing to pre-hire them to do the repairs, and not even know it. Often the storm chaser will tell you that the agreement gives them permission to inspect your roof, or that the agreement gives them permission to negotiate with the insurance company. In most cases, you need not sign any agreements to give your insurance company permission to negotiate on your behalf. These agreements are actually "contingency agreements" or "direct payment agreements", and while a contingency agreement is not always a bad thing, a reputable roofing contractor will have no problem inspecting your roof without you signing over your power of attorney. If you sign a direct payment agreement, you will never see a penny of your money and the storm chaser will pocket it all. If you did sign a contingency agreement or agreement of any kind, remember you have three days to cancel the agreement, and I suggest you do so in writing immediately!
 

Roof Maintenance

Investing in regular maintenance of your residential roof is a smart decision. With regular care, you will likely avoid major roof repairs that can cost you a lot of money. Because there are different types of roofs, your maintenance needs and maintenance frequency will vary depending on the type of roof you have.
