New roof in Newington Connecticut

  One of our more recent roof projects is a small ranch style home in Newington Connecticut.  This home in Newington was a rather easy roof for us to complete.  With 2 roofers and 2 roofing laborers we roofed the house in 7 hours.
  The homeowner wanted a roof that will last for the rest of her life.  She chose GAF 50 year lifetime shingles, the color Biscayne Blue.  Once we removed the old roofing we inspected the roof deck to make sure it was in good condition.  We installed an ice and water barrier along the eaves of the roof to protect against roof leaks from ice dams.  We installed new step flashing and lead counter flashing on the chimney to insure that it is also leak free.
  In addition to offering roofing services in Newington we also offer roof repair, roof maintenance, and free roofing inspections.  We are also a Connecticut Flat Roof Specialist, offering flat roof repair and flat roof installation.  Please contact us at 860 942-3555

How to choose your West Hartford Connecticut Roofing Contractor

  The roof on your home is probably the most important and over looked investment that you will ever make.  Water can and will destroy your home, protecting it from the elements is essential.  You will probably pay serious attention to the roof 3 times in its life span, when it gets replaced, when it needs to get replaced, and if it ever leaks.  Other than that the average home owner takes the roof for granted.

  In order to choose the right West Hartford Roofing Contractor for your homes new roof you must first do a bit of research on your style of roof.  If you have a flat roof, you do not want to hire a roofing contractor who is not familiar with installing, maintaining, and repairing a flat roof.  There are many different flat roof systems, be sure that your potential roofer is certified by the manufacturer to install the roofing medium that you choose to use.
  There are many different manufacturers of shingles for pitched roofs.  When choosing your roofing contractor for a shingle roof, be sure that they have installed the type of shingles that you would like to use.  Each roofing manufacturer has specific guidelines for the installation of their shingles, failing to follow those guidelines can void any and all roofing manufacturers warranties.

  Making sure that your roofing contractor is properly licensed and insured is a must.  Without a contractors license they are unable to pull a permit for your new roof.  If that were to occur, the town may shut down the job and levy hefty fines.  A roofer without insurance that protects you will cost much less than a properly insured roofing contractor.  That is of course unless something happens, then it could cost you your home.
  Check out your potential roofers references.  They should be able to provide at least 5 recent customers, that have a job similar to yours.  This is important, if you have a giant colonial style home with multiple layers of roofing to remove, you don't want to hire a roofing contractor who has only roofed ranch style homes.  They need to be properly equipped to roof your home, with adequate tools and knowledge of what goes into completing your project.
  In our 15 years experience we have found that many people focus solely on price.  While the cost of your new roof is important, look more for value, and compare the estimates from the different roofing contractors who bid on your roof.  Price may vary by the types of under layments that are used, by where ice and water shield is being applied, are the re-flashing all of your chimneys, what type of warranty is the roofing contractor offering?  We suggest that you look for value!
  We hope that you find this blog useful when you choose to have a new roof installed on your home.  In addition to serving West Hartford, we also offer roofing services to the surrounding towns, Avon< Farmington, Simsbury, Newington, Bloomfield, and Wethersfield.   We are properly insured and licensed, and are a Connecticut Flat Roof Specialist as well.  Please contact us for a free roof inspection and estimate. 860 942-3555
