Roofers in Jacksonville NC – Stay on Budget with Xterior LLC
Jul 10, 2019
A new roof is one of the more expensive purchases you can make for your home. However, this is also one of the very best ways to increase the value of your home! Our roofers in Jacksonville NC have experience with both asphalt and metal roofs. Best of all, we always stay on budget. When you work with Xterior LLC, you never have to worry about spending more than you’re comfortable spending.
Metal versus Asphalt – Which is Better for Your Budget?Asphalt is the traditional roofing material that many homeowners love. It is an inexpensive product without being a low-quality product. These shingles are very popular and last approximately 20 years. We use only top-quality materials and the latest installation techniques. Since we are Owens Corning Preferred Contractors, we can offer some of the best manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranties in the business. On the other hand, metal roofs are a bit more expensive upfront. However, the typical life span of these roofs is 50+ years. Therefore, this is probably the last roof you’ll ever need. Of course, a metal roof adds even more value to your home, when it comes time to sell. We offer a manufacturer’s limited 40-year warranty on metal roofs. In both cases, your roof is only as good as its installation. If your contractor cuts corners, you’ll have problems in the future. Whenever there is a storm, you’ll have to worry about shingles or sheets of roofing flying off. Even when we’re not experiencing a storm, shoddy workmanship could lead to problems with moisture and pests. Hiring the right roofers in Jacksonville NC is important! That’s where we come in. The Xterior LLC contractor team has more than 45 combined years of experience in exterior home improvement services for NC homeowners. We use techniques to increase the longevity of your roof. They include the following steps and more:
- Using starter shingles to protect this susceptible row from blowing off in a storm
- Installing an ice and water barrier
- Reducing heat and moisture problems with proper vents so your roof can breathe
- Using silicone, rather than rubber gaskets, since rubber dries out over time and causes leaks
