Roof replacement is not as simple as just slapping on new shingles. It’s a whole system, and everything needs to work in tandem to be sure that your home is properly protected.
There are four primary components to a new roof system: (1) The sheathing, which is the base that is fastened to the house’s rafters; (2) the roof cover, which are the shingles, tile, slate, or metal components that will protect the sheathing; (3) the flashing that prevents water seepage; and (4) the drainage system which affects a roof’s ability to shed water.
When selecting a roofing system, cost and durability are important, but so are aesthetics and architectural style. The proper system balances all four of the above-mentioned considerations.
In addition, choices for the actual roof covering are numerous: (1) asphalt shingles (fiberglass or organic); (2) wood; (3) tile or concrete; (4) slate; or (5) metal. Each choice has multiple considerations, such as durability and weight. Not all shingles are the same. Veronesi, central Pennsylvania’s premier roofing system contractor, uses only shingles that meet or exceed national standards. We also know the building codes in the Centre Region and are able to advise you about which roofing replacement system would be best for your home.
Proper roofing installation is critical with a new system. Ventilation and insulation need to work hand-in-hand for not only a roof system that works as it’s intended to, but also for a healthy home interior free of moisture, condensation, or worse, mold.
A roof is a major investment, so using the right residential roofing company is a must. Veronesi is central Pennsylvania’s best roofing company with more than thirty years of experience. We are licensed and bonded, and use the highest standards of quality control.
