Asphalt shingles are by far the most common type of roofing material for residential homes in Northwest Arkansas. There are 3 types in the roofing industry that differ in materials, shape, size, color and thickness. Here is a small guide that will help you differentiate them and choose the type of shingle that best suits your building whether residential or commercial.read more
Is a metal roof the answer to all your roof problems? Not always – there are pros and cons of residential metal roofing. Most people think a metal roof is a permanent solution, but that is just not true. Metal roofing is secured to the decking with screws and neoprene washers. There are many different kinds of metals roofs. Panel LOC Plus: Screws are exposed, and neoprene washer can go bad in 15-20 years. Standing Seam: all the screws are covered, so it is a better choice, yet still not permanent.
The metal is 26 gauge, and can go on top of the old roof or decking with waterproofing, with one inch airspace for insulation.
Leaking roofs are the number one indicator of roof damage, but how do you tell where the leak is coming from and how much of the roof needs to be repaired?
We normally crawl up in the attic and look at your rafters for water stains. This is how we determine where the leak is. Then we get up on the roof at the same location assess the damage. Most water leaks occur in a valley (where two parts of the roof meet) or a skylight. We will replace the moisture guard, flashing, and shingles only where necessary. Just because you have a leak doesn’t mean you need an entirely new roof.
Which type of commercial roofing is right for your business? We handle all sorts of commercial roofing from spray on for metal roofing, to roll-on for energy savings.
Most commercial metal roofs are either done by replacing the metal or coating system. The metal is power washed to clean it, bolts heads are caulked, fabric with coating is put on seams vertically and horizontally, and then the entire roof is sprayed with a white elastomeric coating with an 85% reflectivity, saving you energy. The coating retains 300% elasticity after it dries, so it won’t crack or break.
What you don’t see
So much goes into a roof that you don’t see, so it is not easy to see when a job is not done right. Let us explain all the necessary steps for you.
The steps replace your roof involve tearing off the old shingles and felt, which includes replacing all the pipe boots and wind turbines that provide ventilation to your home.
Then we install ProRise, a synthetic felt underlayment that is much more durable than the tarpaper felt used in the past. This is the water proof layer that keeps your home dry, so it is a very important step. Shingles are actually protecting this layer.
After underlayment, shingles are installed bottom to top and finished off with a ridge cap.
We haul off all the debris and take it to Arrowhead Supply to be recycled.
