Roof Installation: Why We’re the Best

Roof installation or roof repair? Sometimes it makes more sense to install an entirely new roof rather than repair your current one. As with most things that wear out, there comes a point where fixing isn’t as effective as replacing. And with a new roof installation, you get a new roof warranty.

The good news is that T&K Roofing excels in roof installation and roof replacement.

When it comes to roof installation, it’s true that “Quality doesn’t cost, it pays.”

A new roof installation may be the largest investment you will put into your home. Your roof is the guardian of your home, protecting your family and property from the elements. Quality counts. Not just in materials, but in workmanship. T&K Roofing ensures you get both for your roof installation project.

Roof Installation 101: Materials

When considering the materials for your roof installation project, there are literally hundreds of products, colors and styles to choose from.

Depending on the architectural style of your home, up to 50 percent of what people see when looking at it is the roof. Choosing the right product and color for your roof installation can enhance the appearance and increase the value of your home. On the other hand, wrong choices in materials (and roofing contractors!) can make the house look less attractive and end up costing your more money down the road as inappropriate roofing materials and poor roof installation work starts to fail.

We take pride in continually improving our knowledge of new roof installation products as they come on the market.

Types of Shingles

Most of the roofs in Vacaville and other Solano county communities are made of composition shingles (asphalt shingles). These are an economical roof covering and come in a variety of styles and colors. Premium composition/asphalt shingles are a bit thicker and provide a textured, rich appearance instead of the traditional flat surface of standard asphalt shingles. They also last longer and are more resistant to wind than standard shingles.

Tab shingles are another economical choice for roof installation. But while this material is cheaper, it’s also less wind resistant, and its flat appearance can make roof imperfections more noticeable.

Laminated shingles are designed to resemble wood shingles. They offer various styles and colors to give a roof a “layered” appearance. They are stronger than economy shingles, offer a greater degree of wind resistance, last longer and are typically more resistant to fungus.

Aluminum shingles can dramatically change the appearance of a home. The contemporary styles and colors make for a very elegant roof design. Aluminum is among the most energy-efficient roofing materials, and probably the most environmentally friendly choice for roof installation.

Tile roofs come in hundreds of styles and colors.

They are very popular in California for roof installation work. Clay or cement tiles can enhance the curb appeal of any home. While new advances in tile roofing technologies have allowed tiles to be made lighter, they are still heavier than most other roofing products. It is important to ensure the roof installation project has been designed with a structure strong enough to handle the weight if tile is your product of choice.
