Reasons to get a new roof

All roofs will eventually need replacement, and if you see missing or broken sections of shingles or tiles, leaks or light coming through, damaged flashing, or other problems, roof repairs may not be enough. It is always a good idea to have your roof inspected if it's past warranty or looks worn out, and the experts at Roeland Home Improvers can help you determine the best course of action.

Another common cause for roof replacement is storm damage. Even the most careful homeowners can't do anything about severe weather, and unfortunately many homes are affected by natural events like high winds, hail, and falling trees. If your home has suffered any type of storm damage, we can help! Our roofers can quickly and effectively return your home to normal and keep the inside dry and protected with a durable new roof.

Brighten up your home’s appearance

Of course, not every roof replacement has to be inspired by negative causes. Many homeowners elect to replace their roof simply for the aesthetic value, as a new roof can completely change the look of a home. A new roof will increase curb appeal and property value, making it a very beneficial home improvement project.

Ridge Vents & Roof Ventilation

It's understandable that roof ventilation is often overlooked, as most people are simply worried about their roof keeping their home dry. However, a well-ventilated roof can make life easier for those living beneath it. Proper roof and attic ventilation can lower heating and cooling costs, improve interior comfort, and grant longer life to roof shingles.

In the summertime, a properly ventilated roof allows hot air in the attic to escape, reducing the demand on your air conditioning system. In the winter, ventilation combines with good attic insulation to keep the roof surface cold, so that snow won't melt on the roof surface and then freeze to form ice dams along the eaves.

Roeland Home Improvers installs and repairs ridge vents and other types of roof vents. We are Morris County and Northern New Jersey's expert roofing contractors for roofing solutions that include roof repair, roof replacement and more. Contact us today for a free quote!

Types of roof vents

There are different types of roof vents, and different strategies for achieving effective roof ventilation. Here's a brief overview:

Asphalt Shingle Roofing

Asphalt shingles are the most popular roof covering for homes, largely because they are relatively inexpensive, durable, and varied in styles, colors, and textures. Here at Roeland Home Improvers, we carry three-tab shingles and architectural shingles from leading manufacturers to give your home a long-lasting beautiful finish.

To get the longest life out of your asphalt roof, proper installation, maintenance, and repair is necessary. That's why it's important to choose an experienced, professional contractor you can trust.

Upgrade your home with a durable, energy-saving roof

Whether you're looking for an inexpensive roof covering or stylish high-performance shingles, we offer asphalt shingles to meet your style and budget. Asphalt shingles are available in two varieties: fiberglass (or composite) and organic. Composite shingles are made of a fiberglass base mat with a waterproof asphalt coating that protects against weather damage. The traditional 3-tab asphalt shingle has been around a long time and is the most common roof covering. Architectural, or dimensional, shingles provide value and strength in a genuine wood-shake look.

Many manufacturers have adopted energy-saving technology to reduce the amount of heat absorbed by your roof. We install ENERGY STAR-rated cool roof shingles designed to reflect the sun's rays, reduce the temperature of your roof, and help lower your energy costs.

Wood Rot Repair

Wood rot often comes as an unpleasant surprise. Perhaps you’re having your roof shingles replaced and the roofer announces that the decking, rafters, and/or ridge board is rotted. Or maybe you’re preparing to paint an exterior window sill or trim board and you notice the wood under the old paint is soft. Worse is when you’re in the basement or crawlspace and notice rot in structural beams and joists!

Left untreated, with the right conditions, wood rot can spread and eventually weaken the structure of your home. Of course, a home with significant rot will also lose its resale value, so it’s imperative to take action. Roeland Home Improvers specializes in roof repairs that can help prevent wood rot. We offer expert wood rot repair and roof repair services throughout the Morris County and Northern NJ area. Contact us today for a free repair estimate.

Ice Dam Prevention & Damage Repair

Ice dams can cause interior damage to ceilings, walls, and floors, but the right roofing services can eliminate this worry. An ice dam earns its name by trapping pools of melted water behind the frozen dam created when melted snow re-freezes along the eaves, where the roof is coldest. Water trapped behind an ice dam can flow under roof shingles and leak into the house, damaging walls, floors, and other materials.

Several conditions must exist for ice dam damage to occur. If all these conditions are present, it’s likely that some water will leak into your house. Here at Roeland Home Improvers, we offer solutions to repair damage to your roof caused by ice damming, as well as prevent ice dams from forming on your roof. Prevention is key in keeping ice off your roof and water out of your home.

How do ice dams form?

  • Snow that stays on the roof for more than a few days, combined with freezing temperatures.
  • Warm air from your living space that leaks into the attic, causing snow to melt high on the roof.
  • Missing membrane protection beneath roof shingles along roof eaves.

While you can’t prevent snow from collecting on your roof, there are other things you can do to prevent ice dams from causing water damage to your house. Some homeowners choose to focus on reducing the amount of heat that escapes into the attic, warming the upper part of the roof deck and causing snow to melt evenly.

This type of ice dam prevention typically involves sealing air leaks in the attic floor and other solutions. Adequate attic ventilation is also important to keep the underside of the roof the same temperature as the outside air.

Another way to protect your home from ice dams and the damage associated with them is to make sure that an experienced roofing contractor installs a protective "ice and water" shield along your roof eaves, where the ice dams form.

Many building codes (this may vary by state and town) stipulate that this ice dam membrane protection must extend at least 24 inches inside the heated wall space of a house. However, older houses may not have such protection.

Energy-Efficient Shingle Installation

On a sunny summer day, the temperature in your attic can climb as high as 140 degrees. With so much heat collecting in the confined space of an attic, it’s no wonder that your air conditioning system has to work harder and longer to keep your home comfortable.

Attic insulation can help to slow the movement of heat into your home, but what about the roof shingles that are absorbing all that solar heat? Wouldn’t it be great if they made shingles that could reflect heat instead of absorb it? Hold on – they can!

Energy-efficient shingles installed by the roofing experts at Roeland Home Improvers can help reduce heat in the attic and any heat going into the house, helping to keep your home cooler in the summer and your air conditioning bills lower.

Lower your cooling costs with "cool roof" technology

Quite a bit of scientific research went into the development of asphalt shingles that can help to reduce cooling costs. Building scientists focused their attention on the tiny mineral granules that come in different colors and are fused to the top surface of asphalt shingles. By applying special coatings to the granules, they discovered that they could increase two critical qualities: reflectivity and emissivity.

New cooler granules reflect about 20% of the sun’s energy, compared to standard dark roof granules that reflect just 3%. Higher emissivity also helps granules stay cooler by shedding heat instead of retaining it.

We can install a green roof in a variety of colors

Recognizing the important role that roofing material can play in energy performance, ENERGY STAR® has established performance standards for “cool” roof shingles. To take advantage of cool roof technology, make sure to use ENERGY STAR cool roof shingles. Most major shingle manufacturers have ENERGY STAR shingles available in a variety of colors or tones.

We can install many different types of shingles to meet your needs and budget constraints. If you are interested in upgrading the look of your home while saving energy, you've come to the right place. As a full-service roofing contractor in New Jersey, we have experience installing energy efficient shingles. We’ll help you decide on the roof shingles that will work best for your home.
