What You Should Look For In Your Roofing System

Published on November 10th, 2015

You’re a proud home owner. You’re probably no roofing expert, but you still require the best for your roof, don’t you. We expect that and we appreciate it as well. We too think that you should have the best when it comes to roofing, because it is you and your family who have to live underneath that roof.

For your roof, you should ensure that you have these things that are important to the quality and effectiveness of your roof. We’ll show you:

  • Roof coating: Some great choices are Kynar 500 or Hylar 5000 coatings, which can help your roof’s durability and fade resistance. They are great to prevent staining and streaking too. There are even different colors and multi-hued shades these coatings offer you as well.
  • “Self-cleaning” valleys: These is the likelihood that most of the debris like pine needles, seed pods, leaves and more, can end up right in the valley systems of the roof. You don’t want this area to clog up with debris and block the pathway of water that’s running down the roof. A “self-cleaning” valley helps to stop this by carrying water and debris on the rooftop.
  • Certified products: The materials used for the roof should always be recognized as quality products.
  • Special flashings: With metal roofing you need to cater for the areas of the roof, which need special care. You need special flashings for areas like chimneys, skylights, dead valleys. flared gables and more.
  • Warranties: Find out all the details about the warranties that cover the product, the integrity of the raw materials and the installation workmanship.
  • Ventilation: Your attic needs to be ventilated in order to keep your home cooler, keep your insulation dry and to avoid ice damns. You can also help to keep rot and mold away as well – that’s why your roof should be properly ventilated.
