Get to Know Your Roof – Understand Roofing Materials

That’s where Pro-Line Contractors come in – we specialize in installing new roofs to protect your home and keep it looking its best.

But before you jump into a roof replacement, it’s important to understand the type of roofing material you currently have installed and the necessary steps for a successful replacement. Here are some key facts to keep in mind:

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are the most common residential roofing material in the United States. These shingles are known for their affordability, durability, and easy installation.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular for its longevity and energy efficiency. While it can be more expensive upfront, it pays off in the long run with lower energy bills and a longer lifespan.

Clay and Concrete Tiles

Clay and concrete tiles are another option for homeowners who want a durable and long-lasting roof. These materials are fire-resistant and require little maintenance, but they can be more expensive than other types of roofing.

Seasonal Weather Conditions

In Illinois, we worry through each storm.  Wondering if any damage is happening to our roofs. It is stressful, especially if you have already been through a leak or roof-damage caused by weather.  The torrential rain, huge snow storms, and sweltering summers cause a tremendous amount wear-and-tear on roofs. Because of this, any professional or Chicagoland homeowner will recommend that you inspect your roof yearly to prevent irreparable damage ensure your roof is ready for the next season.

Roof Insulation

Ceiling or attic insulation is an important key factor in keeping your roof safe from the inside. When Winter weather strikes, you will want the snow to melt and drain properly off your roof.  If it doesn’t, ice dams will form, causing extreme weathering to your roof – all due to poor insulation.  Heavy snow warps roofs, while melting snow runs off the roof the wrong way, causing large drooping icicles. Not very safe to walk under – and even worse for your roof.  Call Pro-line for a roof inspection if you see any icicles – or ice dams.

How Roof Restorations Can Buy You Time and Save You Money

If you look in your attic and you can see any pinholes of daylight coming into the interior of your home- this is a key indicator that restoration work needs to be done.  There are some other warning signs that we look for below.

Assess Your Home’s Ventilation System

Adequate ventilation is essential to protect your roof from the damaging effects of moisture build-up and condensation. When moisture gets trapped in your attic, it can lead to the growth of harmful mold and mildew, which can cause health problems for you and your family. Additionally, moisture can weaken the structural integrity of your roof and cause it to deteriorate prematurely.

To ensure that your ventilation system can handle a new roof replacement, consult with a professional roofing contractor like Pro-Line Contractors. Our team of experienced roofers will assess your home’s ventilation system to determine if it’s working correctly and efficiently. We’ll check for any signs of clogs, leaks, or poor ventilation and make any necessary repairs or upgrades.

Furthermore, we’ll advise you on the best type of ventilation system for your home’s specific needs. Various options, such as ridge vents, gable vents, and soffit vents, are available. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages. Still, we’ll recommend the best one for your home’s size, shape, and location.

ROOF REPLACEMENT WARNING SIGNS

Missing shingles
Something that seems as simple as a few missing shingles can turn into a much larger problem. It is recommended that you schedule an inspection as soon as you see a single shingle curl at the edge.

Water Stains
The most common indicator of a roof problem is water stains. Often times, moisture causes visible splotches or “water stains” on interior plaster and paint. Looking around the top floor of your home and inspecting walls and ceiling is an essential first step of an inspection.

Cracked Or Broken Tile, Slates, Or Damaged Concrete Shingles
The average lifespan of concrete roof tiles is about 50 years. However, it is recommended that even the strongest-style roofs get inspected yearly to avoid damage underneath the tile and major damages to the structure of your home.

Problems With Gutters or Flashing Around Chimney
Not having appropriate drainage can terribly damage a roof. Pro-Line will make sure your gutters and flashing around chimneys are all working properly as part of our residential roof inspections.

Roof “Sand”
It’s normal for shingles to lose some granules naturally. But if every time it rains, your downspouts are full of roof “sand” this indicates you’re your shingles are reaching the end of their lifespan.

Black Stains
Black stains on your roof may indicate algae growth between your shingles. Since algae needs a lot of moisture to grow, there is a probably a problem with moisture getting between your shingles.

Inspection of Residential Roofs

Pro-Line checks from the roof’s top to the gutters’ bottom. A roof inspection will give you an idea of what possibly needs replacement or if you are ready for the next January blizzard or 105-degree day in July.

Most Chicago suburban homes have asphalt roof shingles, and with high wind, heavy rain storms, inches of snow each winter, and very hot, drying, sunny summers, residential roofs need restoration and replacement.  They do not last forever! If these shingled roofs have the maintenance necessary, they may remain sturdy and long-lasting, keeping your family safe and dry for years to come.  With the roof technology today, the newest roof materials protect against the roughest storms.  And with proper maintenance, it can last for over a dozen years!
