We usually give very little thought to our roof, yet it’s probably the most important part of our house. If your roof leaks, water can seep into other parts of your house potentially causing mold and rot problems. Therefore, waiting to replace your roof is never a good idea.

Whether you’re looking for a metal or asphalt shingle roof, we can install your new roof.
Chiefly, the most common type of roofing material is the asphalt shingle. While the main reason for this is the price, there are some other key features of asphalt roofs. The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturer’s Association lists these specific benefits:
Asphalt shingles are available in many different colors and styles, making it easy to find a roof to enhance your home. Lasting approximately 20 years, shingles are durable and the most economical choice. Additionally, it is easy to install and easy to repair asphalt shingles. Finally, asphalt shingles are recyclable as an additive to pavement used in roadways.
More and more, homeowners are choosing metal roofs. And, it’s no wonder with their unsurpassed longevity. Depending on the metal, they can last 50 to 100 years. There are several other great benefits:
It will probably be the last roof you’ll ever buy. Additionally, metal roofs won’t corrode or crack, will not spark or ignite into flames due to a lightning strike. Also, they are energy-efficient reflecting solar radiant heat to reduce cooling costs by 10-25%. Furthermore, a metal roof contains 25-95% recycled content and is 100% recyclable at the end of its life. A metal roof greatly improves the value of your home when it comes time to sell. Buyers understand that they may never have to purchase a new roof.
Primarily, roofing costs vary depending on which materials you choose and the size of the roof. For example, metal roofs may cost more upfront than asphalt. Correspondingly, the larger the roof, the higher the cost for materials and installation. Also, a steeper slope is harder to install, resulting in a higher labor cost.

Of course, you want to make sure you hire an experienced roofer but is a state license also necessary? Generally, licensing requirements of contractors vary from state to state. In North Carolina, a roofing contractor needs to have a license meeting the requirements set forth by the General Assembly. To protect the homeowner from incurring any liability, the contractor must provide certificates of liability insurance and workers compensation.
Before hiring a contractor, ask to see the roofer’s license and a current copy of their insurance certificate. Any reputable roofer will be happy to produce these for you. Moreover, most roofing companies will also be glad to give you a free quote. Finally, make sure you get a written contract before giving the contractor a down payment.
