We have direction related to your actual search. Fun quizzes won’t help you with that. For roof installation, you need a quality roof contractor. To find the best contractor and roof installation, we’ve put together some tips. When you get to the end of our professional roofing suggestions, we’ll even share the answer to our rooster and egg dilemma if you haven’t already figured it out!

Burlington Roofing Problems and Repair

So, in all seriousness let’s examine why you’re searching for Burlington roofing in the first place. Many of our homeowners wonder if they need a simple repair or overall roof replacement. In the end, it depends on the roofing problems and how they occurred. At Xterior LLC, we provide a free in-home consultation to examine your roofing problems and provide you with roofing solutions. First, let’s go over a few environmental factors that affect the condition of your roof. If you don’t perform regular roof maintenance, moisture may begin to intrude into your home. This moisture can cause rot which may degrade the structure even further. Storm damage often starts this nefarious process. If damage goes unnoticed, it may grow in scope and expense. It could even lead to a mold problem and that is one issue that you don’t want to deal with! If you’ve had a bad storm, it’s always wise to check for roofing problems and stop them before they get worse. Speaking of storm damage, there are times that insurance will help with repair. Or, if you need full roofing installation, they may cover a portion of your roof replacement. Navigating an insurance claim can sometimes be time-consuming. Our team is always glad to help with your insurance claim and emergency roofing service. On the other hand, roofing systems simply age. While some can last for many years, they aren’t made to last forever. Time and the elements eventually catch up and that’s when it’s time to consider full roofing installation. Or, you may decide to bump up the timeline on your own to enhance curb appeal. Professional roofing is a fantastic way to make your home shine. Whatever the reason for your roof replacement, Xterior LLC has multiple roofing solutions.

Roof Replacement Solutions from Burlington Roofing Companies

With over 45 years of combined experience in home improvements, our team at Xterior LLC provides the expertise and workmanship for your professional roofing project. From our initial free consultation to completion of your roof installation, we will guide you. Let’s begin with a short comparison of two of the most popular roofing materials in the Burlington area.

Asphalt Shingle Roof

Architectural shingles have many benefits. Just a few include:
  • Broad color selection to match your home
  • Variety of shapes to make your home stand out
  • Straightforward installation and simple repair
  • Affordable compared to other materials
To fully maximize the benefits of your asphalt shingle roof, it’s imperative that you find a contractor who can install it correctly. At Xterior LLC, we install only the best materials using the latest technology. Our process is exact and we don’t veer from it. We begin by complete removal of your old shingle roof so that we can inspect for potential damage. Then, we proceed to our installation process. One of the most imperative parts of your shingle roofing is protection from leaks. Therefore, we place a high-performance synthetic roof underlayment as one of the first steps. This durable construction works with your shingles to further shield your home from moisture. Defense follows. We defend with starter shingles that create a secure seal of protection on the first row of shingles and along the eaves. This extra step protects the shingles from blowing off in high winds. Hip and ridge shingles also provide a clean and consistent roof line. These aesthetics add curb appeal and distinction to your roof. Finally, your shingle roof must breathe. If it doesn’t, moisture will build up. This moisture leads to ice damming and deterioration. We ensure that your exhaust vents improve airflow through the attic. The steps we take on all of these details add yet another layer of protection to your roof. As a certified contractor, we must pay close attention to detail to provide manufacturer-backed warranties. We work with one of the leading manufacturers, Owens Corning. We are honored to be a Preferred Contractor for Owens Corning.

Metal Roofing

A standing seam metal roof is a quality roof option for homeowners. These large roofing panels with a standing seam protect your home from the elements and enhance its beauty. Not only does metal roofing installation offer fabulous curb appeal thanks to multiple color and style options, but they last for many years. In fact, materials such as copper and zinc can last up to 100 years. A few other benefits:
  • Metal roofing is energy-efficient. Since it reflects heat from the sun, it can reduce energy costs.
  • Environmentally-friendly, metal roofs are recyclable.
  • Flexible design allows roofing on low-sloped areas. Standing-seam metal roofing is tightly sealed and resists water.
  • Virtually fireproof, a standing seam metal roof protects your home even further than an asphalt roof.
  • Insects cannot eat metal roofs.
  • Rot and mildew-resistant
  • Despite a common misconception, metal roofs are no nosier than an asphalt roof when properly installed.
  • Metal roofs do NOT attract lightning. In fact, they act as a faraday cage of sorts.
As with asphalt shingle roofs, to get the most out of your metal roofing installation, you need a contractor that pays attention to detail and doesn’t take shortcuts. One of the most important factors in choosing a metal roofing contractor is to make sure they are using the newest techniques and top-grade materials. Not only is this imperative to validate your warranty; it ensures a quality metal roof. Our team uses the finest materials to accomplish this goal.  Additionally, we use methods that separate us from many other contractors. To prevent tearing during strong winds, we install high-quality fasteners with larger screw-head size. This method prevents leaks typical on roofs where cheap fasteners are used. Furthermore, we guard against leaks by using silicone gaskets instead of rubber. Over time, rubber eventually dries out. This allows water to get in. Next, high-quality vent boots reduce the risk of a leak over time around roof penetrations for vents. As previously mentioned, water is not your roof’s friend. Finally, we insist upon something that not every roofing contractor does. We seal the top and bottom of your roofing with breathable foam closure strips. This technique prevents moisture, wind, and wildlife or insects from entering the space between the metal panel and your roof. This step is especially critical in potential storm damage and high-wind areas. If wind gets up in the roof panel, it increases the chance of it being damaged or blown off in high-wind conditions.

Cost and Financing Options for Burlington Roofing

Now that you have some facts about your roofing options, you’re probably wondering how much a new roof will cost. In the end, that depends on the square footage of your roof and the actual roofline. We will explain the cost differences and guide you to make the right decision for your needs. Metal roofs are more expensive upfront, but because they can last more than 50 years, they are sometimes the more practical choice. Asphalt roof are less expensive, but will protect your home for approximately two decades. To help alleviate the expense of metal and asphalt roofing, we offer fabulous financing options. Not every contractor is able to do this. Due to our years in business and the relationships that we’ve built with banks, we can extend these savings to you. Financing options for qualified homeowners include:
  • NO-Money-Down
  • 100% Financing
  • Interest as low as ZERO Percent for qualified homeowners
  • Monthly investment as low as $58
As a locally-owned company, we also understand the value of community and reaching out. Therefore, we offer further money-saving options. We extend additional discounts to military, seniors, teachers and first responders.

Why You Should Choose Xterior LLC

Now that we’ve guided you along the replacement process, we’d like to share a little bit about our family-owned company. At the core our standards is a simple reminder to ourselves and team. “Treat customers the way you want to be treated, use only the best materials, employ the most experienced installers and stand behind your work.” Sound simple? It is to a certain extent. We add to this guideline by utilizing best practices and safety standards as well. Your home and family are as valuable to us as they are to you. This should be the case for any contractor who comes to your home. We strive to protect you before, during and after your installation. To do this, we take many steps. The first is providing written documentation to homeowners. Never allow a contractor to begin a project without a written cost estimate or signed contract in hand. Once we evaluate your needs, we give you a reliable, on the spot, free estimate. Then, we present you with a contract in writing. Our contract is our word and you will never receive a cost increase surprise at the end of your project. One of the most critical documents is insurance. We provide you with a current copy of our insurance certificate and name you as an insured party. When you receive a certificate from a business, it’s important to call the insurance company to verify this information. Unfortunately, many firms present invalid certificates. This puts you and your home at risk. Warranties are crucial as well. By working with only top-quality manufacturers, the warranties that we offer are some of the best in the business.
