For the last year or so, I saw a few houses in my areas having about 13- years-old roofs started getting new ones! Earlier this year I found a few flown shingles from mine, but did not pay any further attention. Came August a neighbor opposite to mine pointed my problems, however minor with a few missing shingles, explained his to be done later in the month. Thus I am serious about this and got 3 quotes, also asking if I can get by with only repairing the problem area. Apparently roofers are busy enough, they all recommended replacement. From my own assessment, roofs done in my years, 1999 all have mushroom vents, as called by roofers, vice newer (maximum) vents in houses build in the late 2005's. Thus they all seemed under-vented, or under designed to remove the heat builded up in the attic. You can open up your attic in a sunshine afternoon to verify indeed it is hotter than inside my car in summer days. This couples with the reasons provided by Mark, that shingles in my time were notoriously bad due to recycled materials that they age prematurely, 14 years old that needs new roof is not out of the ordinary.
Long story short about what I like this company:
- well organized for an efficient and professionally installation;
- the number of underlayments are done as advertized;
- drip edges installed throughout;
- bigger crew and well coordinated ensure a timely done jog.
- Mark took the time to explain about the job, the work involved, process, etc and answered all my questions.
That said, the owner still had to finish up something assumed to be completed by the crew: cleaning up of the debris, nails collected in the eavestroughing. But then he created such a positive impression that he took care of such detail. Overall I am happy with the workmanship and the crew!
