Experience The Tesson Difference
Getting a new roof for your home is a major investment and a huge project. Adding additional challenges or processes to it will only make the process even more involved. If you have solar panels on your roof, you will need to go through at least two extra steps to replace your roof. If you do not already have solar panels, then try to replace your roof before you install them. However, if this is not an option, don’t worry. This happens more often than not.
Have you ever been on a ladder or on top of your roof and notice tiny rocks in your gutters? Or maybe you have seen a pile of gravel at the end of your downspout. You might be asking yourself what are these little rocks, where did they come from, and do they mean anything?
Every homeowner and business owner wants their house or building to be protected for as long as possible. They do not want to have to worry about whether their roof is going to fall to shambles or start leaking at a moment’s notice. As a roof’s lifespan nears the end, it is hard not to worry about these types of issues. However, with a product like Greener Shingles, you can start putting your worries aside for a few more years.
When was the last time you looked at the roof of your home or commercial building? Did you notice shingles that were cracked, brittle, dried out, or moss and algae growing on them? If so, then it is time to think about rejuvenating your roof with Greener Shingles. Nobody enjoys seeing an unsightly roof, especially if your house or building is on the market. Greener Shingles replaces the lost oils in roof shingles and improves shingle flexibility, granular adhesion, hail impact, and fire resistance. Once applied, it quickly penetrates deep into the brittle asphalt roofing shingles, restoring flexibility to enable daily expansion and contraction, as well as extend the life of the roof.
One of the biggest decisions in the roof replacement process is color. Choosing the right color of roofing material for your home can be difficult, especially when every color is well crafted and beautiful such as in the case of Certainteed Landmark Shingles. Choices about your home can be hard, especially when it comes to exterior colors, but taking the time to consider all your options ensures your home’s exterior will be stunning!
One of the greatest human discoveries, and scariest natural force is fire. Fire and combustion forces power many things we use daily including gas-powered automobiles, electricity derived from coal, and some cooking devices like grills and torches. Fire is a wonderful thing when used wisely; however, it can cause massive damage when it goes out of control. Finding ways to mitigate the damage of sudden home fires is very important for any homeowner to consider, saving money and the valuable memories contained in your home.
A brand-new skylight courtesy of nature is usually an unwelcome addition to the house. Roof damage comes in many shapes and sizes, requiring different repair and replacement strategies for each type. However, the good news is that with Tesson Roofing & Exteriors a stress-free repair or replacement is only a call away, and their experts are familiar with treating all forms of roof damage!
One of the surest signs of a need for a roof repair is when your indoor parades also get rained on. The great outdoors, though lovely, should not be allowed into your home; however, a damaged roof will invite rain inside with no hesitation. When left untreated, rainwater can cause major damage to the structure and aesthetic of your home, but roof repairs can be expensive, so having insurance and knowing what’s covered will save you time and money when getting a repair!
It is safe to say that most homeowners do not like the appearance of dried out shingles that are beginning to curl. Not only is it a sore sight, but it also decreases the value of your home. Most asphalt roof shingles last 20 to 40 years, but standard roof warranties span about 15 to 20 years. In other words, complete roof replacements happen more often than the shingles’ estimated life expectancy. Depending on the region and environmental conditions, asphalt roofs typically start showing signs of aging after 8 to 10 years. The granular coating on the shingles begins to wash into the gutters once the oils dry up, causing the shingles to lose their ability to hold the granular in place. As a result, the shingles are left exposed to cracking and failing at their intended purpose. However, if the shingles are treated early enough, the life span can extend longer than originally estimated.
Roof ventilation isn’t typically something you think about very often. However, it does play a very important part in a variety of everyday aspects. Making sure you have the right amount of ventilation in the attic can have a positive influence on the lifespan of your roof system. It can also have a positive effect on the comfort and well-being of your family, your potential costs for home repairs, and the cost of your heating and cooling bill.
