Residential Roofing Services

Installing a roof is an important decision when building your home. There is a lot to consider on the type of roof and design to use. Though a new roof is not all that glamorous, you will understand its importance in a big way. There are fewer home problems that are more disastrous than a failed roof. 

Choosing the right contractors is just as important as choosing the right roof materials. If you end up with a badly skilled contractor, you may be spending more than you bargained for on repairs.

Types of Residential Roofing

There are five types of residential roofs to choosing from when installing a new roof:

Asphalt Shingles

This is the most common residential roofing material used in the US. They have been in use since 1903 and are the most reliable type of roofing material. They are inexpensive and easy to install. They have a lifespan of up to 20 years and are particularly useful in areas with better weather. 

They are made of two different materials:

  • Organic 

  • Fiberglass. 

They are resistant to wind and hail damage and provide waterproof support. They are also available in many colors.

Slate Shingles

They are sophisticated and upscale. They are made from concrete and are resistant to rot and fire. They are very easy to maintain with a lifespan of up to 100 years. They are also incredibly durable and have a natural appearance. Due to their weight and cost, they need a high degree of expertise for installation. 

We have highly trained professionals at NE roofing contractors who are capable of installing any roof material to perfection.

Wood Shakes

They are mostly wood and have a very distinct and natural look. They can withstand harsh weather conditions, keeping UV rays out of the home and reducing air conditioning costs. They are highly effective in areas with a lot of sunlight. They are eco-friendly and help to cut down energy costs. Many manufacturers apply the fire-resistant coating for extra safety. They cost slightly more than asphalt shingles

Metal Roofing

Metal roofs are low maintenance, lightweight, and green-friendly. They are also very durable. The average life of a metal roof is 50 years.

Clay Tiles 

Clay tiles are produced by molding clay. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes and are available in colors white, yellow, orange, and brown. They are generally durable, resistant to fading, and are fireproof. They have a 50-70-year lifespan. Clay tiles are commonly found in the southwest and are very appealing. Although, they are not suitable for climates with fluctuating weather because of erosion. 

Residential Roofing Installation

It is always smart to consult with a roofing contractor to get estimates before you install a roof. If possible, consult with multiple contractors and choose the best. 

Residential roof installation is a big step and should not be done wrongly. Any misstep can lead to future damages. The roofing contractor that you choose to work with should be licensed and experienced.

Residential Roofing Estimation

One of the most important factors that you need to consider before installing a roof is the cost. To know the exact cost of roof installation for your home, you should consult a professional roofing contractor. They would inspect your property and provide you with an estimate containing all installation details. You would then be able to decide on what roof type to use.

There are factors that determine the cost of roof installation. They are:

  • Roof size
  • Height of the building
  • Roof access 
  • Roof material
  • Labour

The average cost of installation is between $10,000 and $26,000. There would be an overhead cost when you get a quote, so you should make plans for additional costs. The average contractor charges between $3.50 and $6.00 per square foot.

Residential Roofing Maintenance

Making plans for regular maintenance for your roof should be of utmost importance. You should give your roof as much attention and maintenance as possible. Proper maintenance would increase the lifespan of your roof significantly. You can schedule a regular inspection and maintenance with your preferred roofing contractor. This should happen at least once a year or once every six months. Regular maintenance should include:

Flashing: It is important to inspect the flashing closely because the majority of leaks originate from here. They are more stressed than the membranes in the roof’s field because of thermal movement, possible differential movement, and UV degradation.  

Field: The roof’s field should be inspected for items such as surface wear, lap integrity, and overall degradation. 

Every roof maintenance should have a checklist to document roof conditions. Both the homeowner and the contractors should take down all that the maintenance covered as well as the condition of the roof after every procedure. 

It is also very important to schedule an inspection after major weather events. Because weather does the most damage to roofs, scheduling an inspection after weather events like hurricanes, hailstorms, and heavy winds helps to find any damage before they become worse.

Residential Roofing Replacement

There comes a time when every roof eventually fails. This is where proper maintenance comes in. When diligently maintained, a roof could last as long as possible and only need a few repairs. Most roofs last up to 20 years and above. 

When you see your roof falling apart and beyond repair, then it is time to replace it. However, you should consult with your contractor before making this decision. The need for roof replacement mostly comes with age and improper maintenance. 


Residential roofing materials can be quite expensive, hence the importance of:

  • Selecting the right contractor 

  • Proper maintenance of your roof 

  • Repair when necessary. 

All of these will help you strengthen the life of your roof and save you from irreparable damages in the future.
