As you search for local roofers near me in NC, consider the following quote.
“If you feed your mind as often as you feed your stomach, then you’ll never have to worry about feeding your stomach or a roof over your head or clothes on your back.”
Most often attributed to Albert Einstein, we like this quote. As you may know, our team at Xterior LLC is fond of pretty much everything roof-related. However, we like this quote for other reasons as well. We agree that it’s important to feed your mind. In fact, we’d like to help feed the mind of homeowners searching for roofers near me in NC. When you’re armed with information, you can find the roof that protects your home and family the best.
To start off our professional exposé on everything roofing, let’s explore the residential and commercial roofing industry a bit. Obviously, pretty much any building needs a roof. While we could go back to nearly the beginning of time, let’s take a look at the modern roofing industry and how material, shapes, and patterns evolved through the years to protect your home and family.
Prior to the 1850s, wood, clay tiles and slate were the most popular materials used. As building slopes varied more in the 20th century, the idea of an asphalt shingle roof arose. Initially, these shingles were relatively simple but eventually evolved into architectural shingles that many local area homeowners use today.
From that point, the workmanship exploded. Designers experimented with different shapes, textures and patterns. Roof contractors demanded quality as well. Manufacturers answered the demand for quality by serving materials that were durable and fire-resistant. Moreover, they introduced related elements such as gutters, downspouts, and flashing. All of these features are useful for a commercial roof as much as for residential roofing.
Moreover, residential homeowners began desiring a roof that enhanced their home’s curb appeal. At this point, options in colors began to abound as well.
All of these possibilities mean that it’s easy to find materials that improve the curb appeal of your home.
However, the selections may seem so endless that they become overwhelming. This is where feeding your mind comes in handy. Plus, it’s useful to have a professional contractor to guide you from start to finish.
Let’s begin at the start. After all, you can’t put a roof on your home until you choose it. To help you make the best choice, let’s go over the variety of roofing materials for a residential and commercial building.
Whether you choose wood shake, architectural shingles, metal or any of the other options above, a professional by your side is also key.
Choosing quality contractor services to help you understand the pros and cons of each option is nearly as critical as your roof itself. Our team of experts at Xterior LLC, offers professional guidance from start to finish.
We begin with a free consultation. During this meeting at your home, we examine your current structure. Whether you need to replace your roof, are building a new home, or are considering remodeling, we take the time to get to know you, your family, style and preferences. Then, we make suggestions based on what we think fits you best.
This is also a great opportunity for you to ask questions. For instance, many customers wonder which of the above roofing materials are best. We’re more than happy to go over the pros and cons of each material. Since metal and asphalt shingles are our main products, we can even do a quick review now to save you some time. Of all of the roofers that you may find when searching for roofers near me – we want you to know that we use only top-quality materials. We use only experienced installers who are kept current on all of the latest techniques and tools. Moreover, we are an Owens Corning Roofing Preferred contractor. That distinction means that we meet their high standards of installation, which allows us to offer the best warranties in the business.
Both materials are an attractive and durable solution to protecting your home. Here is a quick overview of each product.
In the end, it often comes down to personal preference and cost.
Speaking of cost, we understand that whether you’re remodeling or need repair, a roof can be an unexpected expense. Sometimes, financing is the only option. In fact, when you finance you can often afford even more than you expected.
With that in mind, Xterior LLC works diligently to form partnerships with banks. Thus, we can offer our loyal customers superior financing options that not every contractor has. Due to our years in business and the trust built in these relationships, we are able to extend these financing options to you:
As a local business, we also appreciate the hard work of our neighbors in our community. To thank you, we extend additional discounts to seniors, military families, first responders and teachers.
After our consultation, we provide a free cost analysis and estimate. Then, we provide you with necessary paperwork. This is one of the most important steps and you should expect it from any contractor that you choose. Included in the paperwork is a written contract. In the contract, we spell out details and warranties. Never give a contractor a down payment without this in hand. If you don’t have the final price in writing, you could have a very unpleasant surprise after installation!
Just as important, we give you an updated copy of our insurance certificate. For the protection of your home and family, you should always ask for this. Any business unwilling to provide it is putting your home at risk.
Once all documents are in-hand, we begin installation. Shortcuts are not an option. Therefore, we start by removing your old roof and inspect existing material for any rot or problem areas. Once we are satisfied that the structure is sound, we work through the steps of installation. To familiarize you with the process, here is an example of each step we take when installing shingles.
Before, during and after installation, we keep you and your family in mind. Your needs and comfort are important to us and we consider you through every step. Many customers wonder if they should stay home during roof replacement. We leave that up to you. Our team keeps their area as clean and safe as possible. Once we have finished, we clean up all evidence that we were even there except for your beautiful new roof!
Now that you are armed with all this information to help you choose the best roofing, you may want to see photos of finished work. We have that as well! Our online gallery shows all sorts of projects that we’ve completed for our customers including windows and vinyl siding installation. We are a family-owned business and have more than 45 years of combined experience providing top-quality home improvements to NC homeowners.
Likewise, customer satisfaction is imperative. Consider these kind words from past customers:
“I cannot say enough about the professionalism and workmanship of Xterior LLC. This company has helped me with two jobs and both have been nothing less than exceptional!”
“FAST SERVICE. Quality work from start to finish. Looks amazing and is a huge transformation!”
“Xterior LLC was absolutely excellent. They came out for an estimate at a time that worked best for us, after work on a week day. We were given a quote, and the man who came out explained all of our options, the insurance they have, payment plan options, and more. Within two weeks, they delivered materials to our yard and they started the next day. They worked on Saturday, Sunday, and cleaned up on Monday. Also, they ended up having to replace the wood beneath the shingles, but kept us fully informed of everything. They worked fast and efficiently and even left our yard cleaner than they found it. The roof looks amazing and flawlessly handled a pretty bad storm about two weeks after installation.”
