Residential Roofing

Your roof is important. That seems like a pretty obvious statement, but the crown of your home serves more than one purpose. Not only does it shield you from the elements, but a roof actually accounts for a whopping 40% of your home’s curb appeal.

Composite Slate and Cedar Shingles

DaVinci Composite Slate and Cedar Shingles offer all of the benefits of real Slate and Cedar without the annual maintenance. They truly embody the features of real Slate and Cedar. DaVinci is the most realistic composite product on the market. Metal accents really bring out the beauty of the roof by adding copper or heavy-gauge aluminum to the valleys, flashing, and snow guards.

Traditional Slate & Cedar

Traditional Slate and Cedar Roofs have been around for hundreds of years and are exceptionally beautiful. Both are very durable and resistant to severe storms. Cedar lasts longer than standard asphalt roofs and slate can last up to one-hundred years! Copper accents are the perfect detail to complete the project.

Slate and Cedar require maintenance such as replacing broken slates and sealing the cedar.

Did you know that your roof accounts for up to 40% of your home’s curb appeal?

Most roofs installed before 2000 were built to last 20-25 years. The roof system that we install on your home today comes with a Lifetime Warranty.

Warning Signs That You Need a New Roof:

  • Is there delaminated wood decking in your attic (dark spots on the inside of the roof decking)?
  • Are your shingles dirty, cracking, curling, or buckling?
  • Was your existing roof installed before 2000?
  • Do you see any missing shingles?
  • Does your roof seem to be oddly shiny?
  • Do you have blistering or peeling interior or exterior paint?
  • Are there shingle granules in your gutters?
  • Are there stains on interiors ceilings or walls?
  • Are you experiences any leaks in your attic?
  • Does your energy bill seem too high?
  • Does your roof appear to be sagging?
  • Are there dark spots and trails on the roof?
  • Was your existing roof installed before 2000?* (Change from 1996)

Remember, for water to make its way into the interior of your home, it typically has to go through overlapping shingles, metal flashing, moisture barrier, wood decking, your attic floor, and then it usually gets soaked up by insulation. Only when the insulation finally fails does water make its way past the joists and into the living space of your home. By the time you see water dripping through your ceiling, light fixture, smoke detector, etc. – it has already wreaked havoc on your roof for months or years.

New Jersey’s weather is unique because we endure freezing blizzards in winter and extreme heat in the summer. Not to mention the strange weather we had this past year where it was mid-70s on Christmas Eve and shivering cold on the first day of Spring. Rain, wind, snow, ice, extreme heat – even the occasional hurricanes, tornados, and blizzards are all part of our climate.

Your roof is the first line of defense against all of the crazy weather that we have here in NJ. To fully protect your home and family from the elements, you need a complete roofing system. That includes proper roofing underlayment, shingle installation, and ventilation.

Ventilation

In the winter, warm air generated by your heating system, dryer, shower, dish washer and stove can all linger in the house and cause moisture build-up.

In the summer, excessive heat build-up forces accelerated aging and cracking of wood and roofing materials. Your energy bill will also skyrocket trying to combat the excessive heat trapped in the house.

Balanced ventilation can relieve these issues and give your roof the longevity that it was built for. In a balanced system, wind blowing over the ridge creates a negative pressure that draws the warmer air out of the attic. Replacement air enters through the under eave or soffit vents, bathes the underside of the roof, and exits at the ridge cap through ridge vents, roof vents or gable vents. Even with no wind, the natural convection action of rising warm air maintains a continuous airflow along the underside of the roof. It’s a system that works year ’round with no moving parts or energy consumption. Are you interested in improving your ventilation?

The benefits of roof ventilation:

  • Allows outside air to flow naturally upward and out of attic.
  • Promotes a cooler, drier attic.
  • Helps prevent moisture from becoming trapped in insulation, structural wood, shingles and roof deck.
  • Helps prevent rotting, mildew, drywall damage, peeling paint and warped siding.
  • Provides year-round performance for consistent ventilation without energy consumption.
