A roof protects your building from the elements but did you know that fiberglass – asphalt and other types of roof shingles, such as tiles, shakes, slate, are not water proof?
They are actually designed to shed water on a pitched or sloped surface. The steeper the better. Steeper surfaces shed water faster and dry faster.
No responsible roofer would use the wrong type of material. A good roofer looks at every roof on a case by case basis.
Our roofers at Class Eh! Roofing have been doing at this for a while so we have the ability to consult with you in these matters. We have seen all kinds of roof leaks and all kinds of roofs leak!
We also listen to what the manufacturers say about how and where to install their roofing products and we meet building codes.
We recommend the use of CertainTeed Landmark and other models of shingles made by CT because of their #1 rank on consumer reports and because of our experience over the years using different brands.
Remember: No matter how good the roofing material is, it must be installed in the right place and in the right manner to perform and do so for a long time. Ask the roofer and find out how much he knows before you hire him. The right decision in picking a roofing contractor or company is very important.
For all your roofing needs be it dry or wet weather, please contact the team at Class Eh! Roofing and we would be pleased to offer our professional and cost effective solutions!
