There’s a misconception that metal’s conductivity makes it a bad roofing choice. Properly installed and ventilated metal roofs can save you up to 25% on cooling costs in the summer depending on your home’s construction.
When having a roof replaced, you can choose to lay new shingles over your old roof or tear-off the original roof and install a new one.
The flashing are sheets of metal that are fixed at the joints, edges or breaks along the roof. These prevent leaks from occurring in the roofing system. Incorrect flashing installation can result in rotting or cracking in the wood and cement components of your roof.
Shingle curling can develop on both organic-mat and fiberglass-mat asphalt roofs. It’s best to let professionals fix this issue because, if you’re not careful, the curled shingles can break off.
