Shingle & Color Match Roll Roof Replacement

 

New shingle and color match roll roofing by Ameri-We-Can Roofing & Siding Ewing N J .  Roofs really look great when you can match the color of the roll roof to the color of the shingles. When Installing a shingle roof the pitch of the roof must be a minimun 3/12 pitch what that means is that for every lineal foot you travel horizontally the roof must have a 3 inch vertical rise. I just won a contract in Chesterfield N J because the salesman told the customer he could roof a less than 3/12 pitch if they used ice shield on the complete low pitched roof area. Manufactures won’t cover the material warranty if the right material is not used for the right application,also its against the state building code to use shingles on a less than 3/12 pitch.  I was willing to bring  the roofing manufacture representative in to prove to homeowner that the sales representative  was not using the correct roofing application for the job. The homeowner at that point hired me for my knowledge and paid more to me than my competitor due to our expertise. Needless to say cheaper is not always better. Some companies get to big looking to make a profit that they lose sight of what really means the most ,and that’s giving the customer the best job possible. When searching for a contractor I strongly recommend using someone who has a good rating with the Better Business Bureau.
