Why is a good roof so important?

There are a lot of reasons keeping a good roof on your house is important. Here are three reasons that really stand out.
It adds value to your home

The right roof can improve your home’s curb appeal which is a major factor in home value. If your roof is in poor repair it may give the impression that your home hasn’t been well maintained overall.  If your roof is well maintained, potential buyers are more likely to assume the rest of the house has also been kept in good repair.

It can lower your utility bills

If your roof is sound, well ventilated, and properly insulated, it is far easier to maintain temperature and humidity in your home.  You will be able to keep your thermostat set lower in the winter and higher in the summer since you won’t be losing already conditioned air through leaks in your roof.  This translates to lower heating and cooling bills.

Best reason ever!
It protects your investment

Your roof is what stands between the elements and what is likely one of the largest investments you will ever make… your home.  Keeping your roof in good repair help prevent leaks that can lead to water damage, mold, mildew, and overall structural problems.  Even a small leak can lead to costly damages over time.

The best time to replace your rain gutter system is when you are changing your roof!

When should I replace my roof?

It’s clear that a good roof is important but how do you know what shape your roof is in?  Sometimes the need to replace a roof is obvious but more often it isn’t.  The best solution is the have a professional roofing company take a look and let you know if a new roof installation is the best answer. However, there are some things you can take a look at yourself:
  • Check for signs in the attic
    If you can see the light coming through or you find stains and streaks your roof has failed and you should call a professional roofing company immediately.
  • Check for damaged or missing shingles
    Cracked shingles, shingles that don’t lie flat against the roof, and shingles with bald spots where granules are missing are all indicators that your roof is not properly protecting your home.
  • Check for faulty flashing
    Flashing seal the seams around vents, skylights, and chimneys to protect against rain and weather. Cracks or breaks can lead to leaks. Older homes used roof cement or tar for flashing which should be upgraded to metal flashing for a more durable seal.
  • Check your roof's age
    Take a look at your records and see when the roof was last replaced or re-shingled.  If you have a shingle roof that is over 20 years old, it is probably time to get a professional out to take a look.  If you have metal roof, you may be good for 50 years or more

Choosing the Right Roof

Metal or Shingle Roof?

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing provides a lightweight, environmentally friendly solution to protect your home. This type of roofing have an extremely long lifespan and hold up to even the most extreme weather conditions.

We work exclusively with AB Martin product lines to ensure you get the absolute best quality metal roof for you money. Additionally, they offer styles and colors to compliment any home.

ABM Panel

Example of an AB Martin ABM Panel roof
Our most popular metal panel is by far the heavy-duty and long-lasting ABM Panel. This specially coated panel reflects as much as 84% of the sun’s energy away from the roof, resulting in a cooler building in summer, more energy savings, and greater comfort. A cost effective choice for both residential and commercial use.

ABSeam Panel

Example of an AB Martin ABSeam roof
Our Longest-lasting metal panel, the ABSeam Panel, is the ultimate choice for a beautiful, long-lasting standing seam metal roof. The advantage of standing seam is the hidden clip system which means no screws or punctures are visible  or exposed to the elements which makes for a longer lasting roof.

Why choose metal roofing?

  • Longevity
    A metal roof will easily last over 50 years. This makes it a great choice for a home you’re planning to own for a long time. It also has great resale value, so whether you’re planning to stay in your home forever or sell it soon – it is a sound investment.
  • Environmentally Friendly
    If you’re looking for a more eco-friendly roofing material, metal roofs are hard to beat. They are manufactured with up to 95% recycled content. Even better, metal roofs are 100% recyclable at the end of their life.
  • Resale Value
    Homeowners can recoup up to 95% of the costs of their roof in resale value. Homes across the country will sell for more, but specifically in the northeast have better resale value. This is generally because of the longevity of metal roofs, and the increased value you’re bringing to your home.
  • Energy Efficiency
    Metal roofs reflect solar radiant heat, which means that heat is not absorbed into your home, and your AC doesn’t have to work as hard. Some Central PA homeowners claim to save up to 40% on their energy bills simply by switching to a metal roof.
  • Warranty Peace of Mind
    High quality metal roof warranties offer peace of mind for 40 years or more. A new roof, installed by a qualified roofing contractor, will let you rest assured that your investment will last for many years to come.
  • Safety and Durability
    Metal roofs are virtually indestructible and will not ignite during a wildfire or lightning strike. They can also stand up against other elements of Mother Nature, such as high wind, extreme temperatures, or snow and ice buildup. This provides increased safety to your family and belongings inside.

Shingle Roofing

Asphalt shingle roofing is the most widely used roofing material on the market. It is economical, easy to repair, and offers a range of styles and colors that cover almost anything you can imagine.

We work exclusively with GAF, the undisputed industry leader for asphalt shingles. Their wide range of styles and colors is sure to have something that suits your needs and gives your home the look you want.

Why get a new shingle roof?

  • Save Money
    As your roof ages, it needs repairs more and more often.  Those costs can pile up over time.   A minor repair here and there will cost between $150 and $400, but major roof repairs can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000, or more.
  • Increase Safety
    An old roof can allow water into your home, which can cause property damage and may lead to mold which can put your family’s health at risk. In the winter older roofs are more likely to form ice dams and icicles which can risk injury and liability.
  • Return on Investment
    According to the industry experts at HomeAdvisor, “The boost to value resulting from the new roof comes in at $8,150, or 109% of the original investment”. If you are planning to sell your home in the next few years, a new roof will pay for itself.
  • Energy Efficiency
    If your older roof is deteriorating, it is allowing conditioned air to escape from your house in the winter. A new, properly installed roof provides a strong seal against the elements which can lower your heating costs.
  • Warranty Peace of Mind
    New premium quality asphalt shingles come with a warranty of 25 years or more. A new roof, installed by an experienced, qualified roofing company, will let you rest assured that your investment will last for many years to come.
  • Avoid Infestation
    It is common for older, deteriorated roofing to allow access to rodents, insects, and other undesirable “guests” that can find a way through it into your attic.  Once an infestation gets started, it can quickly spread to the rest of your home below.
