When thinking of residential roofing, you probably just think of what can be seen, the shingles, however, there is much more involved in roofing. Your roof is a complex system that is responsible for not only keeping you dry but protecting the overall structure of your home.
A quality roof will include proper ventilation, appropriate shingles for your type of roof, caps, underlayments, gutters, and other materials that help make your roof look great.
Multiple estimates later, I decided to go with CJS and clearly made the right decision. Between conversations with Chris and James, PM, I felt comfortable with having them come in and replace a garage roof that has been a headache for far too long. The crew was in and out in two hours, and were professional and courteous. Seeing the boss come to the job says a lot about the owner and his commitment to his customers. Thank you!
It is important to understand that there is a difference in the products you choose for your installation. CJS Exterior Maintenance will go over the materials designed specifically for a residential roof, since homes typically involve consideration for steep slopes.
The most important choice you will make during the material selection process, is choosing your shingles. Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used shingles in Northeast Ohio, but the variations and choices will seem endless. A variety of styles, colors, warranty, and price are all important things to consider.
Depending on which shingle you choose for your project, you will have decisions to make regarding underlayment’s (a water-resistant layer), caps (cover the joining points), and other options, such as vents, gutters, and more.
Of course the best products will not matter if the installation is not performed to current standards. CJS Exterior Maintenance has installed thousands of roofs over the years and holds certifications through CertainTeed, Truco, Owens Corning, and more. We are here to help you understand your residential roof and guide you through your choices, allowing you to make the best decision that is right for your home.
