Roofing & Shingles
PHOENICIAN HOME IMPROVEMENT has access to all roofing shingles and products, but over the years we have identified certain manufacturers that prove to be superior. Some of our favorite roofing manufacturers include Certainteed and GAF. We use primarily architectural shingles (also known as laminated shingles) because of the benefit one receives versus standard three-tab or strip shingles. Architectural shingles have become very popular in the past 15 years, and there is a small difference in price between three tab shingles and architectural shingles—about $300 on the average home. In addition, architectural shingles have a more attractive profile that looks more like real wood shakes or slate. There’s more to a roof than just the roofing shingles. Using proper underlayments and accessories is crucial to a quality roof system–without them, your roof may not last very long.
Here at Phoenician Home Improvement we are committed to going the extra mile when it comes to completing the installation of a new roof on your home. Many roofing contractors cut corners on accessories because it saves them lots of money on the job, and for the most part, most homeowners would not know that anything is missing. Common things that are left out are rake edging, ice and water barriers, a starter shingle drip course, new aluminum vent pipe flashing, new step flashing, proper soffit vents, ridgevents, and sometimes even felt paper. As one notices, there are many extras that can easily be left out. Any one of these accessories, if left out, can result in major leaks and seriously jeopardize the integrity of your new roof. Also, many roofing manufactures will not warranty roofs that are missing some of these key elements.
Our goal at Phoenician Home Improvement is to install a roofing system that is complete with all of the necessary accessories that will make it last. We recommend products that possess the greatest value for your dollars. Many roofing contractors are concerned with being the cheapest—we’re most concerned with doing the job properly according to manufacturer’s specification.
