Exterior Designers Inc. offers all types of residential roofing. Roofing is one of the most important, if not the most important item, of residential construction. In addition to being the water shed for the entire structure, a roof can also give a home a face lift by enhancing its appearance. When considering a new roof, you should take into consideration the entire roof system. The shingle is only part of the total decision. Flashing, ventilation, and deck condition are among the most important aspects that are often overlooked. In addition to style, color, and type of shingles, there are a variety of weights and warranties that lend to the final decision.
Among the most common common roofing choice for homeowners is the Asphalt shingle. Generally considered the most cost effective, Asphalt Shingles usually last much longer than other options and provide a variety of options. Exterior Designers, Inc. specializes in traditional asphalt shingles, architectural shingles, and reflective shingles.
Cedar Shake Roofing used to be the roofing product of choice, prior to asphalt shingles. While Cedar Shake can give your home an exclusive look, it is often considered a very high-end product and requires regular maintenance. It also does not provide the longevity of asphalt shingles.
One of the most difficult applications for the roofing business is that of the flat roof. Flat roofs are notorious for leaks. Extra attention and often higher cost are involved in order to protect a flat roof from leaks. If the proper roofing job is done, the homeowner can be more assured of no leaks for the life of the roof. Even the highest quality flat roofs only offer a 12 year warranty, however, because flat roofs tend to hold water and wear out faster than a roof with a pitch that would allow for water runoff.
