Traits of a Good Roofing Contractor

Since a roof is important and expensive, you want to make sure you hire a reputable contractor. The Spruce, an online publishing company, suggests verifying several items before you hire:
  • Contractor insurance
  • Business longevity
  • Physical business address
  • References
  • Experience
  • A contract specifying the scope of work
Generally, it’s true that new roofs rarely leak from material failure, but from an installation that is inadequate. That’s why it’s so important to hire a trusted and reputable contractor. At Xterior, all our technicians are skilled, experienced, and dedicated to detail – ensuring a quality installation. Whether you choose an asphalt or metal roof, you will have a new roof that will protect your home for many years to come.

 Asphalt Roofs

According to Architect Magazine, asphalt shingles made their appearance around the turn of the 20th century. Since then, they have been the most popular choice of homeowners. The main reason for this is the pricing.  Typically, the upfront cost for materials and installation of an asphalt roof is considerably less than metal roofing. Plus, there is a wide variety of colors and styles to enhance your home. Providing excellent protection for your home, an asphalt roof has a life of 12-20 years. Finally, asphalt shingles are recyclable as an additive to pavement used in roadways. When you purchase an asphalt roof from Xterior, we use only the highest quality roofing materials. We install a high-performance underlayment combined with self-sealing water and ice barriers, to protect your home against water seepage.

Metal Roofing

While most houses have asphalt roofs, more homeowners are choosing metal roofing. With its unsurpassed longevity, it’ll be the last roof you’ll ever buy. By all means, though, its longevity is only one of the many benefits:
  • Resistant to fire, rot, and insect damage
  • Energy-efficient – saves 10-25% on cooling costs
  • Recyclable
  • Less combustible than other roofing material
Moreover, it is a misconception that metal roofs are noisier than asphalt. In truth, there is a strong sheathing between the metal roof and your existing roofing surface, which reduces noise. Also, metal roofs do not attract lightning. Science has proven that lightning is a burst of electricity and always seeks a path to the ground. Since metal roofing is an isolated structure with no path to the ground, there is no attraction. Finally, the overall initial cost of a metal roof is more expensive than asphalt roofing. Nonetheless, you may actually save money over the long term because it’ll last between 40-70 years. A metal roof adds more resale value to your home. Buyers know that they will never have to replace the roof. Moreover, we offer a manufacturer’s limited 40-year warranty on metal roofs. Another frequent question with metal roofs is, “Can you install one over an existing asphalt shingle roof?” While this is possible, some building codes don’t allow it. Water vapor may become trapped between the layers causing mold and rot.  Moreover, many contractors, including Xterior, won’t recommend it because of this potential moisture problem. We never want to install a roof over an existing problem. If you cover up an area that is creating a leak, that rotted wood underneath the roof will continue to cause structural problems and could potentially create a much more expensive issue in the future. We remove the old roofing to ensure that there are no damaged areas that require repair, before replacing the roof.
