Why Roof Shingles?
Even without any knowledge of the materials used in our industry, its simple for you to deduce that roof shingles provide the most practical solution for the widest variety of structures. Any residential neighborhood, aside from apartment complexes, are dominated by shingles – and for good reason!
The primary advantage to covering the top of a structure with shingles involves their modular nature. Rather than one large piece, you have hundreds, sometimes tens of thousands, of tiny pieces. Straight away its effortless to perceive the superiority!
For one, it allows for the roofers to disregard much of the hassle that comes along with other materials when covering homes with diverse geometry and sizes. There’s no huge pieces to work with and everything can be molded to the framework of the trusses and supports. Valleys, peaks, hipped sides… there’s nothing you can’t cover with shingles.
Another advantageous dimension to having many smaller pieces becomes obvious when repairs become necessary. Often with metal roofs, slate, rubber rolls, or flat styles, percussive damage makes repairing a small piece of the structure impossible. Often property owners get forced to opt for an ugly patch, or even worse, have to replace the entire roof completely! Shingles allow roofers to simply complete underlying structural repairs and then patch up or replace the damaged area.
Types of shingles
Yet an additional advantage to the widespread adaptation of shingles is their extreme variety. With the same skill set, one roofer can install dozens of different styles and colors of the same hardware. For clients building a home from the ground up or looking to compliment a new exterior paint job there’s countless options to choose from. There’s almost no style of structure, residential or commercial, that can’t be matched properly with an appropriate set of roofing shingles.
Our roofers dedicate themselves to knowing the ins and outs of our supplies – which means having numerous style options for every sort of building. The contractors on our team pull from dozens of different catalogs and suppliers, meaning you’ll have plenty of different choices to choose from to find something that not only suites your preference, but that compliments the other design characteristics of your home.
What To Ask Your Roofer
For first time homeowners and less experienced contracting clients, getting straightforward answers involving their installations or repairs can seem daunting and maybe even deceiving. One of the pillars of our company ethics is honesty. Don’t ever hesitate to call up both our office staff and the contractor working with you to get real information and honesty answers. If for whatever reason you choose to work with another roofing company in town, consider the following questions to go over with them:
- How long will the repair/installation take?
- Are you licensed and insured?
- Do you use ladder stabilizers and standoffs?
- How will you dispose of work site material?
- What factors will you base your estimate off of?
There’s dozens of other points to check on with someone working on your home. Hopefully this short introductory list gives you a few starting points to develop from! When you sign on with ILM Roofing, you can rest assured knowing every detail of your repair will be discussed and elaborated upon before the workers get started. We keep our clients informed because it simplifies the job for both of us!
Roofing Estimate for Repairs and Installations
When it comes to residential repair, especially in the case of a leaky roof, estimates can be a huge factor in determining which contractor to go with. Many clients will get estimates from every company in town before moving forward to fix their home or business. Its important to consider, however, that a low estimate shouldn’t be the primary element to consider when shopping around.
A low estimate doesn’t necessarily mean low quality craftsmanship. For many of the larger contractors in this area, the added work loads allow companies to have more flexible pay rates and of course more options. Estimates from single man teams or smaller groups might be less malleable.
There’s so much to consider when calculating a roofing estimate, its almost impossible to summarize everything here! Consider the sort of repair, what materials are needed, how many man hours, what sort of time frame you’re working with… even the time of year comes into play. Please don’t hesitate to talk things over with your contractor, any legitimate business always encourages their customers to be informed before making a purchase!
