"We called
Roofing to get a quote on a small roof repair as well as a quote for a new roof. Overall, after a few phone calls, they were responsive" and gave a complete quote for the repair with a 5-year warranty as well as a quote for a new roof. The quote was a tad confusing as it was blended together (repair and new roof) with a lot of repetition. We got an over-emotional phone call about how ruined our roof was and that it needed immediate replacement, and was surprised about a 2nd leak that the estimator found that we could not find. It was also confusing that if the roof was so bad, how could they do a repair and some sealing work to give a 5-year warranty? We also felt that there was some disorganization in the office - I would call the published number and when I asked to speak to someone about the roof repair, I was told to hang up and call another number! I could not be transferred. Ended up getting a 2nd estimate to compare, and felt better about the other company and went with them instead. I think a bit more organization in the office and in the quote would have boosted my confidence a bit more and we might have hired them.

"Everything went very smoothly.
, owner of the company, was punctual, very informative about what needed to be done. He explained that he" would do an Air Brush cleaning of our roof, preferable to high pressure water wash. It was his recommendation that this was the best way to go in order to preserve and not damage our roof. Our roof looks great. Another contractor that we asked for an estimate, never even went up on our roof and didn't tell us that we needed 3 new vents. We highly recommend J & J Roofing!!

Angie's Answers

?
Wow, i aum surprised you didn't get 10 answers already with roofers say X was the best or N was the best or A was the best. In reality you are focusing on the WRONG THING!

5 estimates? Why 5? Why would you do that to yourself? Normally if you are dealing with reputable companies you don't need more than 2 estimates. I advocate to people to always get at least two estimates and if the roofers are saying something very different or if the roofers are way way way off in price, get an equalizer, get a 3rd.  Obviously if you don't trust a roofer disqualify that roofer immediately.  I beliee you have now fallen into "Analysis Paralysis" which is what happens when you have too many opions.

But back to the topic, I said you are focusing on the wrong thing. Why did I say that? Because you can take the best shingle in the world and if installed wrong is compeltely garbage. i can take the worst shingle, known to fail, and if installed properly will last some ammount of time. So you should focus on the roofer, not the product. The roofer is more important and a good quality roofer will only want to install good quality product.

The roof is a system comprised of many components, not just the shingles. You have the water proofing underlayment such as ice shield, the water resistant underlayments such as felt. You have the shingles, the ventilation and the flashing details. All of these things add up to equal one roof. Neglect one and your roof is doomed to fail.

But the roof is more than just product it is detail, know how and heart. Heart? yes heart. It takes the utmost CARING the utmost DESIRE to want to install a good roof. It's hard work and easy to fall into the train of thought as to do what's easier, instead of what's faster.  Faster and easier seldom ever equals better. At the end of the day you ened a roofer that cares about your roof.

So what product is best? That's hard to say. Each manufacturer has multiple plants and it seems each plant puts out varying levels of quality. I will tell you in my area Atlast is known as a cheap commodity shingle. I have Tamko Heritage on my house but I stopped using it because I was having seal failue issues and at the time they offered no contractor certification program, but I hear they started up one. Ownes corning is a decent product backed by a great company. I don't install very many OC's though. I primarily install CertainTeed Landmark shingles and my feeling is that they are the best on the market in my area. I'm sure others will disagree with me.

But don't miss the point, the roofer is more important than the shingle.

I appreciate the fact that with homeowners like you who want to beat the insurance co out of deductibles, so then my rates and every other homeowners rates can also go up just to save you.....Thanks for NOTHING..[8o|]

Any roofer worth using should be able to do the roof with NO MONEY DOWN.

 

The only scenario I would ask for a deposit is on a crazy odd ball shingle that had to be special ordered.

?
The question was, Can it be done? The answer is yes. The real question is "Should" it be done? The answer is, no, not unless it is an emergency.   But also let's clarify winter, because we are having a pretty mild winter, so there's kinda not a problem this year so far. I'll refrence "below freezing" from this point forward.

As a certified and licensed roofing contractor, my reputation is on the line. I debate this topic quite often with other roofing contractors who seem to care more about profit than a job well done.  Well, I can tell you from past experience having been a professional roofer for 14 years as of the time of this posting, that the chance for failure increases exponentionally when installed below freezing.  It's better just not to risk it.

Personally I will not, unless absolutely necessary and the customer signs a disclaimer of limited liability, install a roof below freezing and really really want to install the roof at 40 or above. The shingles need to seal, and will not seal unless they warm to about 70 degrees F ambient temprature. This does not mean it needs to be 70 outside, because the shingles will warm from the sun.  

So what can be done to install the roof below freezing? Well first, the roof should not be gun nailed below freezing. This is because the shingles become brittle and it's easier to "blow through" with your nails. It's also harder to regulate air pressure when it is cold, I speculate because of barometric pressures, but I am just guessing.  Therefore the roof should be hand nailed. This takes more time. Furthermore since the seal strips will not seal, they must be manually sealed with proper compatible adhesives. This will also take more time, and more material. I once spoke with a roofer in Alaska who builds tents around the houses he is working on and covers them with tarps and heats with propane heaters.  Now that takes real time!    The question is, are you prepared to pay for this extra time? Can you wait a few more weeks? 
?
Sounds like wet felt to me. What process did the roofers use when replacing the roof? Did they tear it off and felt it in on day one and then shingle it on day two?   This method is frowned upon with organic felt paper because it leaves the felt exposed to morning dew.  Moisture such as dew will cause the felt to wrinkle.  Or if the roofers got caught in a rain and didn't protect the felt from the rain but kept on shingling this can also happen. 

The wrinkles will lay down flat if allowed to dry before first installing the shingles. However this is a waste of time. This is why I live by two 1 rule, never tear off more than you can put back in the same day, and if by some chance you opened more than you can shingle, tarp it. Felt is not water tight. 

I really am only speculating. Without seeing it I really can't give an accurate answer. 

There are a few other possible reasons, and framing (actually sheathing) is another possible reason. If the plywood is fastened improperly or if the plywood was installed without a gap between the boards for expansion and contraction, ripples can also occur.   The difference is you will see the ripples spaced very evenly 4' or 8' to match the spacing of the plywood.  If it is the case of improper fastening of the plywood, meaning the fasteners missed the framing so nothing is holding the plywood and it warps, you could easily depress the warped plywood with your foot. If the plywood actually buckled due to lack of expansion gap, you would not easily be able to depress with your foot.  If the roofer didn't install the plywood, it wouldn't really be his fault, though if he or his crew saw it when working and didn't fix it then they probably should have. But I am not going to play the blame game unless I know exactly what the cause is.


A storm ripped through the area two years ago. The storm chasers use the cheapest possible shingles, and I am seeing something I haven't seen before. I am only guessing but what it looks like to me is like the shingles are expanding too much and causing the ripple effect I mentioned above in regards to plywood and the lack of expansion gap. The difference is there is no expansion gap required with shingles.  This affect is something I never saw before and is only related to one cheap commodity dog house shingle which alot of cheapo roofers like to use.  I've been roofing 14 years and this year is the first time I have been seeing this particular problem. It seems to come and go, which also tells me expansion is some how involved. I don't think you'd be able to depress it with your foot, though I've never tried.


Can you post some pictures?   
?
To answer simply, yes, shingles can be defective, but most shingles are not rated for hail storms and therefore not covered by warranty replacement.  The shingles available through box stores are the lower line choices available and although they have good ratings on wind-speed, etc. they usually only come with a manufacturer warranty which depreciates quickly once purchased.  This sounds like an insurance claim to me; I used to work for a roofing company and here in the Northwest, we don't get much hail, but I have owned a house in Florida and experienced the damage a real storm can do.  I would suggest you have a couple of contractors look at the problem and see if the damage can be repaired instead of replacing the whole roof unless you have massive plywood sheeting damage under the shingles.

I purchased the 'Tile Roof Tuneup' for $149. After waiting 3 or 4 days for

I got three bids, did research on the three companies and the materials they use. I contacted
Newport Roof Cleaners Provider Name Locked
and they verified that

is a certified installer, which is needed for the extended warranty on the roof. All companies will tell you theirs is the best roofing material and you will find pros and cons for all of them. It really comes down to proper installation. 1) I liked the bid process with
Newport Roof Cleaners Provider Name Locked
- he is very easy going, honest and doesn't try to do a hard sell 2) The office staff provide excellent customer service, they actually contacted me to see if it was ok to start the job a day early. They told me exactly when the shingles and the dumpster would be delivered and when the job would start. They followed up to make sure everything was done to my satisfaction. 3) The roofing team is very professional, they work fast and efficiently and everyone seems to know what to do. You can tell they are experienced and have worked together for awhile. They get the job done and do an excellent job of clean-up every day. 4) The owner comes back when it's all done for final inspection, feedback and to collect the final payment. The whole process was much better than I expected it to be.

The men arrived as scheduled and went right to work. They covered my shrubbery and flowers. They hosed down the area around my house as they worked. They left me with a sparkling clean roof. What a difference, It was important to me that they didn't have to walk on my roof since breaking the tiles is easy to do and can result expensive problems....More /> I highly recommend this company.

Came out for quote when he was supposed to, explained how they would apply the solution and soft scrub, and would cover all of the shrub and surrounding areas for protection from the cleaning solution. Very professional, nice young guy. I contracted with him, he came out two weeks later on the day as promised, the results were that the roof looked brand new. With the service he provided a warranty for three years. This was in spring of 2012. The black streaks never returned, the roof in that area still looks great. However, the north facing

areas started to regrow moss, so he came out and redid those areas last summer(2014). He mentioned I was his first recall. He wasn't happy, but he honored his warranty and work without a hassle on my end, that tells me a lot about his work ethic. I'd highly recommend. (sorry for the late review. Better late than never?)

Over the past years we always had several pine & oak trees...either near... or hanging over our home until we finally had them removed.. This resulted in many large black streaks of sap and algae that went from the peak of the roof to the bottom
Newport Roof Cleaners Provider Name Locked
that looked even worse after the trees were all cut down.. We were a bit skeptical if one washing would take care of all this like this company said and were amazed at how well they all turned out. They had arrived on time and were very organized and did a great job in washing all the roofs. Everything looked like new when they had finished and we were completely satisfied. It did not take that long to do and when they finished they cleaned up and left everything in order before they left. I would use them again If I should ever need to have this done again and. I would also recommend them to friends and to Angie's List...
