Roofing Contractor

Most of our customers call us when they have a roofing emergency -- when they have a leak, their shingles have been damaged or when some other problem has occurred, causing major problems to the interior of their home. Rather than waiting for a major problem to appear, we always recommend periodic inspections by a licensed roofing contractor. We believe that yearly checkups are beneficial, but if you have recently experienced a storm, hurricane or hail, it’s advisable to conduct a thorough inspection as well. Whether you are looking for a contractor to conduct a routine inspection or you have a major roofing emergency on your hands, our team at Steel Penn is at your disposal.

When a roofing professional comes to inspect the condition of your roof, there are certain things to keep in mind. One of the primary concerns will definitely be the quality of the shingles or the material that your roof is made from. However, there are certain other aspects of your roofing structure that should also be inspected:

  • Roof flashing
    Roof flashing is the flashing around any chimneys, skylights or vent stacks that you might have. It is important to check the quality of this flashing to make sure that no leaks can occur.
  • Skylights
    Apart from the flashing around the skylights, it is also important to check the quality of the skylights themselves. Skylight leaks can be easily repaired using a special sealant.
  • Downspouts and gutters
    If your downspouts do not properly drain water off of your roof, or your gutters are clogged, you might encounter an overaccumulation of water, which can damage your roof in the long-term. For this reason, it is very important to inspect the state of your gutters and downspouts as well.

All roofs need to be replaced eventually. However, it is up to you to make sure that your roof is maintained to last as long as possible. If you end up waiting too long to replace your roof or keep on top of existing damage, it might get too expensive to repair it. On the other hand, you should keep in mind that replacing your entire roof too soon is expensive and a huge waste of money. As a result, it is important to keep in mind some of the most common roofing problems that can occur and know how to recognize when you need professional assistance. Our team at Steel Penn has years of experience in detecting early signs of roof damage and making sure that any preventive measures are taken before it’s too late.

Roofing Services and Replacement

In the event that you need to replace your roof, it is important to choose the right roofing material for your home. Each home’s architecture and the specific requirements of the climate that it is exposed to requires a different type of roof. Take a look at some of the roofing options that we usually recommend to our customers:

  • Asphalt shingles
    Asphalt shingles have become one of the most popular types of residential roofing in the United States. This is the case because they fare particularly well against a number of standards, such as tear strength and resistance to wind forces. Apart from their excellent performance indicators, asphalt shingles are also very versatile, cost effective and come in a wide variety of colors.
  • Concrete tiles
    Concrete tiles are an excellent choice if you are looking for a roof that is known for its impeccable resistance to weather, fire and even the passing of time. Recent testing has shown that concrete tiles either meet or exceed different industry requirements for water absorption, strength, wind uplift, etc. If you are looking for a durable roof, concrete tiles are an excellent option.
