HOW IT WORKS
Several days before we begin your roofing project, we will notify you that we will drop off a dumpster and the materials
We will remove all old pieces of roofing and place it in the dumpster. We will inspect the wood and replace any damaged pieces to ensure longevity in your roof.
We will place a protective base of material on top of the wood before installing the shingles. This will help waterproof
We will place the new shingles on top of
We will do a final walkthrough to ensure you are satisfied with our work.
TYPES OF ROOF
Red Cedar shingles have a much higher durability than the white variety. Once installed, they can last several lifetimes. They have high weather resistance properties and a high resistance to moisture. This makes them ideal for roofing in areas of high humidity. Red cedar contains tannic acid, a natural preservative which helps to extend the longevity of the shingles. The high water repellency ensures that your shingles do not warp. Red cedar shingles give your roof excellent dimensional stability. They also have a unique cellular composition which captures tiny pockets of air and improves the insulation capacity of the shingles. You can enjoy a cooler house during the summer and more warmth indoors in the winter. This makes red cedar shingles a good choice if you want to enhance energy efficiency in your home.
The tannic acid in red cedar causes the shingles to eventually darken and become blotchy. Unlike the white shingles, you cannot paint red cedar shingles. They have a poor absorption capacity and do not readily catch stain or paint. The shingles also cost more than the white shingles which may hamper installation.
Asphalt roofing shingles are the most commonly used covering on residential properties in the market. Asphalt’s primary purpose in roofing shingles is to serve as a waterproofing agent. Asphalt also holds the granules in place and adds to the overall strength of the roofing shingle. The best asphalt will stay flexible and will not dry out or become hard or brittle for the expected life of the roofing shingle.
Metal is another option for shingles. With today’s technology, metal shingles can withstand winds and do not corrode or crack with special rust-proof coatings. Metal shingles are a more sustainable option. Thanks to their reflective qualities, metal roofs are more energy-efficient than asphalt shingles.
A rubber roof, known in the roofing business as an EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) roof, has a lot of advantages and only a few disadvantages. One of the big advantages to rubber is the price. Not only is the roofing material itself less expensive than most other choices, but the product is also lightweight, and installation is fast and easy, reducing labor and installation costs. The rubber is glued into place, negating the use of heat, which can adversely affect a homeowner’s insurance policy.
Rubber is also long lasting. Most of these roofs are laid in a single piece, which means there are no seams or very few, depending on the exact layout of the roof. Few seams mean few places for water to seep under the roofing and destroy the home. Rubber is also one of the “greenest” choices that a homeowner can make. The rubber itself takes less energy to produce than most other roofing materials and is often made from recycled materials to begin with. And the roof is 100% recyclable at the end of its long life.
SYNTHETIC OR PLASTIC
Our polymer roofing products are made of recycled materials and are fully sustainable. This not only makes the product more durable but environmentally friendly as well. Polymer cedar shake alternative is maintenance free, unlike traditional shake roofing. Throughout the roof’s lifecycle, you will not have the need to repair or replace individual shakes as you would with real wood. Barrel Tile is an eco-friendly, fully sustainable composite roofing product made from recycled materials. This sensational composite product combines the timeless beauty of Spanish tile with extreme durability and practicality for today’s environmentally conscious consumer. Our synthetic barrel tile provides the classic Mediterranean look of clay tile, without all of the drawbacks.
“We are very happy with the work Roofing and Siding of Cape Cod did for us. They replaced our roof and all siding and trim, so our home looks new again. They also helped with a couple of small additional projects.
The crews arrived on time each day–when the weather permitted–and worked diligently and meticulously throughout the day. They worked well together, were always pleasant to deal with, and did a thorough cleanup at the end of the project. The quality of the work is excellent.”
Our contact was Scott Dickson who provided a thorough, competitive estimate, and managed the project. When we had questions, he was always prompt in answering his phone or in getting right back to us if he was not available. We also worked closely with Kevin Jones, who supervised the siding work. He ensured the high quality of his crew’s work, answered all of our questions, and addressed any concerns promptly.
Mary helped us select a roof single color when we were out of town and was prompt and pleasant with communications, billing, and receipts.
We would definitely work with Dmitry and his team again.”
