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? 
?
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.
?

Get your roofer back out there.  Course of shingles above the window need to be pulled, self sealing flashing, drip caps, and counter and step flashing are going to be required here. 

 

This is a flashing issue as the window connects to the mansard roof surface. 

 

Condensation and a leak are two different and very noticeably different (i.e. volume) things.

 

Flashing and roofing on Mansards can be tricky but is sounds very much like a roofing issue.

Vitaliy is a very hard working young man. His professionalism was appreciated. He was easy to contact and responded quickly to any voicemails. He was to arrive at my house at 9:00. I got a call from him letting me know that he was stuck in traffic and would be arriving about 20 minutes late. Once he arrived he got busy moving all of my patio planters, furniture, potted plants together so that he could cover them all with tarps as not to get any of the roof moss on them. Then on to my extremely moss covered roof. He worked for several hours to make my roof look like new. He also let me know that 4 roof vent seals were cracked and needed to be replaces. He them cleaned my gutters really good and unclogged 2 down spouts. He recommended putting downspout strainers into all downspouts to prevent the clogging in the future. Once this was done he proceeded to pressure wash all of the moss that came off the roof. This included the

siding, windows and screens, and all of the cement around my house. He worked very hard and never stopped until he was finished. He then offered to put back all of the items he had moved. You certainly get your moneys worth with

and Vitaliy. I would highly recommend him to all. I had several neighbors comment on how great the roof looked.

What a disappointment. First, he would not honor the 10% Angie's discount as part of his quote. I spoke twice with the owner,
Kennewick Roof Cleaners Provider Name Locked
, before setting an appointment for Saturday morning. I confirmed the date and time of day by repeating it back to him before writing it on my calendar. After waiting 2 1/2 hours, I called to find out when he was going to arrive. He did not return my call.
After waiting a total of 4 1/2 hours, I called again, leaving a message that I was going to find another company to do the work. He returned that call in 10 minutes. His exact response was "I don't know what makes you think we are coming today." He went on to tell me the appointment was for Monday. He was abrupt and unprofessional. Unbelievably, he blew off the appointment and then blamed me.

We were pleased in every way. Where another company would have insisted we need all new gutters, it cost far less to repair, strengthen and improve the flow of the existing gutters. They did a thorough cleaning of old debris in the downspouts and spent the time to advise us as well as to check out a roof leak which they were able to go ahead and repair. We will have them back to clean our roof.
