The Salvatore & Sons Difference
What separates us from every other roofing contractor in the business is our insistence on “Hand Nailing” all our shingles. We never have and never will use nail-guns to install. This method is the cause of most installation issues down the line. The force from the Constant pressure of the compressor can leave the nails sticking up when you nail over a rafter, or conversely “blow through” the shingle if you hit a softer spot in the wood. This never happens when you use a 16oz hammer like we do.
EVERY new roof installations come with written guarantees of 10 to 50 Years on flat or shingle roofs. If during the specified period your roof develops a leak due to materials or workmanship, we will repair it at no extra cost to you. Our guarantee means more than our competitors – we’ve been in business for nearly 100 years.
New Roof Installation
Asphalt shingles are the leading choice for residential roofing in the United States because they provide quality, durability, versatility and economy. Over 12.5 billion square feet of asphalt shingle products are manufactured annually – enough to cover more than 5 million homes every year. Four out of five homes are roofed with asphalt shingles.
Asphalt shingles offer consumers the broadest array of colors, shapes, and textures available. With an enormous range of styles, asphalt shingles can match almost every type of architectural design and achieve virtually any desired effect – and do it affordably.
Why Asphalt Shingles?
Asphalt shingles perform well in extreme temperatures and in areas where wind, water, and ice are prevalent.
As a traditional, natural roofing material, slate provides beauty, high fire resistance, versatility and strength. A slate roof increases your home’s aesthetic appeal and value. Slate is unparalleled in design, longevity and energy conservation.
Our certified roofing experts and coppersmiths have the experience in working with slate and copperwork to get the job done right, and to provide you with a beautiful, durable roof.
Also, metal flashings that are critical to keeping water out will wear away after about 50 years.
It’s best to develop a relationship with a qualified slate restoration roofing company. Just as slate roof installation requires special skills, the maintenance, repair and restoration of a slate roof is unique in its demands.
While the initial cost for a premium metal roof is higher than most other roofing materials, you’ll save money in the long run. A metal roof can last a lifetime, whereas materials like asphalt require reproofing every 10 to 20 years. A metal roof can also increase the resale value of your home. It can even lower your homeowner’s insurance by 35%.
The average life of a non-metal roof is 17 years. Asphalt can require re-roofing every 10 to 20 years, often sooner. But a metal roofing system offers unmatched durability, lasting 2 to 3 times longer. Chances are good that a metal roof will be the last roof you ever install on your home.
No matter what kind of roofing style, color or finish you have now, there’s a metal roofing style to match. Today’s metal roofing looks just like common roofing material such as asphalt shingle, clay tile, cedar shake or slate. However, metal lasts at least 2 to 3 times longer.
Metal roofing in both light and dark colors reflects heat effectively to reduce cooling loads in the summer and insulate homes during the winter. This can help to lower energy bills.
Most metal roofing comes with a true 30 to 50 year manufacturer warranty, plus a workmanship warranty. Contact us to learn more about the metal roofing warranties that are available.
Shingles that have earned the ENERGY STAR rating reflect more of the sun’s rays than other shingles. This has been shown to keep the roof surface cooler. Less heat is transferred into the home. Using these shingles can reduce the amount of time your air conditioner needs to be running, resulting in lower energy bills.
Most roof leaks are located around roof penetrations such as pipes, skylights, vents, bathroom/kitchen exhaust-fan vents and chimneys.
Many times, the flashing around these areas needs to be resealed or replaced. Often, we are called to replace shingles that was damaged or have blown off the roof.
