Your Medley Roofing Contractor
For your Meldley Home Roofing is one of the most important aspects of a construction project as most structures would need something to serve as shelter. It is not surprising how roofing has developed over the course of history and even so just over the past two decades. As more homes are being built, more options of roofing have sprouted as well. This fills the several requirements, not only of function, but also of aesthetics. It is amazing to observe how many choices a homeowner can make when it comes to roofing.
Metal roofing in Medley is no longer limited to those leaky sliding panels attached together rather insecurely and then screwed or nailed to a frame. Today, there are metal roofs that have more secure concealed clips that can be expanded or contracted. Perhaps the most important factor for choosing metal roofing is its life expectancy: metal does not decompose or break down even with exposure to extremes in weather. Some metal roofing may have warranties of up to 50 years. The disadvantage with metal however is the greater possibility of leaks compared to other roofing options. If metal is not installed properly, leaks are likely to occur.
Asphalt shingles are a popular choice of material for roofing. They are inexpensive, durable, and easy to work with and maintain. Glass fiber ones are the most common choice because they are cheap. These have a mat covered with a layer of glass fiber under the asphalt. The asphalt is mixed with fillers to adhere to the glass fiber easier. Ceramic granules, placed next, protect the shingles from heat. The gravel also provides different styles and colors for the buyer. Another more expensive type is the organic variety, which has no filler. They are made of felt coated with asphalt and ceramic granules to make it waterproof. Although organic shingles cost more, they are heavier because of the greater density and will resist the elements better. However, glass fiber asphalt shingles are easier to make and are most cost effective.
Cedar shingles in Medley are a much more attractive alternative to asphalt. With proper care wood shingles last longer and provide more protection than asphalt shingles. The key to proper wood cedar shake life is to protect them from moisture. Modern shingles are pressed and coated with water resistant material. The fact remains that water is most likely to cause damage to wood. Wood resists impact better than thin asphalt, but it cannot handle standing water.
