The Seven Design Elements of a Roof
Ridge — This is the highest point or peak of the roof.
Hip — This is the high point where two adjoining roof sections meet.
Valley — When two sections of the roof slope downward and meet.
Pitch — This refers to the slope or steepness of the roof.
Eaves — This refers to the part of the roof that hangs over the rest of the home.
Gables — These are the triangular portions of the ends of the home, which extend from the eaves to the peak of the roof.
Dormer — These are the sections of the home that extrude from the roof. They're usually added as a way to bring light into an attic or the upper level of your home.

Maintenance

A roofs life can be extended by a good maintenance plan. A routine inspection along with bi-annual gutter cleaning can avoid costly problems in the future. One of the most critical factors in a roofs durability is proper ventilation. Without it, heat and moisture build up in an attic area and combine to cause rafters and sheathing to rot, shingles to buckle, and insulation to lose its effectiveness.

Choosing a Reliable Contractor

Buying a new roof is an important investment. Before you spend your money, ask a few simple questions.

Is the company licensed? Bonded? Are the workers insured? How long have they been in business? Are they members of the National Roofing Contractors Association?

RoofComparing Roof Estimates - New OR Repairs

Calling roofing contractors and asking for estimates is the easy part, now you need to compare the estimates you received and decide on a contractor to use. Always ask for a detailed estimate in writing. It is impossible to make an informed decision if you are not given all of the information. Although the bottom line is important, never compare estimates only by the overall cost to you. As you review your estimate, here are some of the questions you should be asking yourself:

  • What type of material is included in the estimate? Is it a commodity-roofing product (cheaper, but lower quality), or a quality product?
  • How much is included in the estimate for labor and transport of materials? Is there any provision made in the estimate for potential problems?
  • What was the response from the customer references you called?
