What is the most important thing a homeowner should consider while looking to invest in a new roof?

The best roofing material in the world is useless if you don’t have quality contractors installing it correctly.

What if a homeowner just wants a recommendation on what type of shingles to have installed?

We typically recommend GAF brand shingles because they boast great quality and warranty coverage. However, Certainteed, Owens Corning, and Tamko shingles are among top brands and at Fowler Homes, we think the best shingle will depend on the home and the needs of the homeowner.

If a homeowner asked for an environmentally friendly roof, what would you suggest?

First and foremost, we’d recommend a metal roofing option. A cool-rated shingle option is also a great choice. Cool roofs can help minimize heat transfer and can help save money in cooling costs for homeowners in warm, humid climates.

Each roofing material has an expected lifespan. Are roofers and builders able to repurpose those materials for new projects?

Metal roofing is 100% recyclable and shingle roofing is recyclable as well—there just aren’t a lot of ways to do so. In other words, the homeowner will not be able to repurpose these materials themselves—rather, they can take the materials somewhere that does recycle them.

Can a “green” roof lower a homeowner’s utility bills?

While a green roof can lower utility bills, the upfront cost of a roof that will make a truly noticeable difference will have a higher upfront cost. However, if a roof’s energy efficiency is a top priority for a homeowner, it’s a good idea to look for Energy Star-qualified materials.

What will the estimator look for when inspecting my roof?

Our estimators are experienced at gauging shingle wear. They will look for weather related damages (hail, wind) or potential problems, integrity and life of shingles, and installation errors. The estimator will give you a professional opinion and provide you with options.

How will I know if I need a new roof?

The obvious reason is a leak. However, if you’ve also experienced a big storm, you may have wind or hail damage. You may see the granules coming off the shingles, missing shingles, etc. If you have any doubts about the soundness of your roof, we would be more than happy to provide you with a …

What is the best form of ventilation?

It depends on your home’s design. We can help you design a system that most effectively ventilates your attic space. Ventilation is one of the most important aspects of a good roof system. We will take the time to help you understand your options and make sure you meet your new shingle’s warranty specifications.

What shingles do you recommend?

We use all of the major brands of shingles including Certainteed, GAF/ELK, Owens Corning, and Tamko.  One of our roofing consultants would be more than happy to help you with choosing the shingle that looks best on your home.  We prefer Certainteed brand shingles because of their quality and warranty coverage.
