residential roofing questions

1. How long will a composite roof last?

Most composite roofs in the Gulf South are replaced every 15-20 years. The lifespan of your roof greatly depends on the upkeep. The Lake Charles area’s weather and the proximity to trees for most homes, will require regular servicing. Routine annual maintenance provided Lake Charles Roofing will ensure your roof will perform at its best while looking amazing year-round.

2. How much does a shingle roof cost?

The price of your roof will vary based on the size (total square footage), pitch, and which material is chosen. Lake Charles Roofing can provide a free and detailed estimate in about an hour so that you can make the best decision for your family and home.

3. What’s the difference between shingles?

There are two other major shingle types available in today’s market three tab and architectural shingles. Unlike a thicker laminated architectural shingle, the three tab version only consists of one layer of material making it much more prone to penetration and blow off, not as strong and durable. Architectural shingles are the heaviest and thickest by far, making them very durable but also much heavier and higher in cost. In the Gulf South, the smart choice is the much more cost effective and technologically advanced architectural shingle.

4. Can I Install my own composite roof?

We cannot recommend enough hiring a licensed, bonded, and insured, professional roofing contractor. Roofing requires a highly trained and skilled professional contractor. By hiring a professional contractor you can take comfort in knowing that your new investment is being installed correctly, efficiently, and will stand the test of time. We provide full-time employment for all of our expert employees. Every crew is led by an onsite foreman who will ensure the installation goes smoothly. In addition, we have a dedicated project manager who will coordinate the logistics of the project from start to finish.

5. Are composite, composition, asphalt, laminate, and fiberglass shingles all the same?

They are essentially all the same type of shingle. Fiberglass is used to reinforce and hold the shingle together, whereas asphalt is used to add water resistance and waterproof the material. These terms are used interchangeably in the roofing industry, but they all refer to the same product. So the simple answer is yes these are all the same products.

6. Will the color of my shingle affect my home’s resale value?

Yes, it absolutely. It’s best to pick a neutral color when thinking of the resale value of your home. It’s been found that neutral and darker colored shingles are more appealing to buyers. When selecting a color, it’s often ideal to correspond the shingle color with the siding, gutter, and trim that accents your home. The beautify of a new roof is undeniable to a home buyer.

7. Can the color of my roof affect my home’s internal temperature?

It can, but there are ways to minimize this conduction effect. While the outdoor temperature may be 80 degrees, a darker colored shingle will conduct heat and cause higher temperatures down into the attic and rooms below. By choosing a lighter color shingle you can potentially reduce the heat absorption of your roof, this will reduce the temperature and create a more efficient system. Ensuring your home’s attic is properly insulated and has healthy air flow is a top priority for maintaining air quality. A properly ventilated attic allows for constant airflow which translates to better efficiency of the home’s cooling and heating systems, as well as the prevention of moisture build up leading to mold and mildew formation. A properly insulated attic works seamlessly with your roof to create a system designed to protect and acclimate the home. Most single-family homes in the Gulf South are insulated according to the standards set in place by the Department of Energy.

8. Does the shingle brand I install on my roof really matter?

It sure does! There are many shingle manufacturers producing a wide variety of shingles at various levels of quality. Not every shingle is made for every climate and roof. Homes here in the Gulf South see much more rain and high winds than other portions of the country. Using a shingle designed for the Hurricane prone climate with superior protection is the best way to ensure your home is protected by a product that will hold up for years.
