Although hail, snow, and ice can damage roofing, it is wind that causes the most destruction. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to stop Mother Nature. However, we can minimize the damage by making sure our roofing contractor properly installs quality materials. Sometimes finding an experienced, qualified contractor can be tricky. When searching for professional roofing contractors that residents of NC trust, call Xterior, LLC.

We offer great warranties because we are a Preferred Contractor through Owens Corning, a leading manufacturer of shingles. That designation means that we must meet their high standard for roof installation techniques. Additionally, we are fully-insured to protect you. Finally, we offer plenty of financing options because a new roof is a big expense.
While most of us realize strong storms, such as hurricanes, destroy roofs, lesser storms may cause damage as well. Wind can lift shingles by breaking the seal that bonds them together, leaving your roof vulnerable to wind-driven rain. According to the National Weather Service, even 45-mph winds may cause some minor damage to asphalt roofs. Whereas metal roofs have sufficient strength to resist extremely high winds in conjunction with having fewer seams for leakage problems.
Owens Corning, a leading manufacturer of asphalt shingles, has put together a list of what to do after heavy winds:
While you may want to skip inspecting the area around your home, don’t. Check for fallen tree limbs, broken fences or other debris which may have punctured your roof. Sometimes your shingles may appear intact, but dents in gutters and roof vents may point to hidden roof damage. Look closely at flat surfaces such as patios for signs of hail damage which could also point to roof damage. Certainly, if you notice any wet spots on your ceilings or in your attic, you should suspect a leak. By all means, call a contractor and your insurance company for an inspection if you note any damage.
One of the best ways to protect your home is with quality roofing materials properly installed. Xterior uses only the best materials obtained from ABC Supply Company. Started in 1982, ABC Supply has grown into the largest wholesale distributor of roofing in the United States. Providing the top name brands in asphalt and metal roofing, you can be confident of receiving quality roofing materials.
Although very important, quality materials are only part of the equation for a truly protective roof. Your quality materials will fail if the contractor doesn’t install them properly. This is why it’s very important to choose your contractor carefully. Xterior’s technicians are experienced and utilize the latest technology to ensure you have a cost-effective roof that will last. We back this up with a workmanship guarantee in addition to labor and material warranties.
The most popular choice for roofs is asphalt shingles. With its ease of installation and many color and style choices, it’s easy to see why. Plus, it’s economical, recyclable, and durable, with a life of 12-20 years.
It’s true that metal roofs are more expensive upfront than asphalt. However, their longevity will allow you to recoup your upfront cost. With a life of 40-70 years, it’ll probably be the last roof you’ll ever buy. Additionally, because metal roofs reflect solar heat, you’ll save 10-25% on cooling costs. Finally, a metal roof is 100% recyclable at the end of its life.
