Qilin Roofing is a certified installer of several top manufacturers of shingle roofing systems which ensures we are taking care of not only just the shingles that you see, but also the underlying roofing system performance to ensure what we complete lasts a long time.
What we look for and our approach includes:
Ensuring the roof structure underneath your shingles is structurally sound and without rot and mould. Multiple layers of shingles will add to the stress and we always take into account heavy snowfall to ensure your roof structure can handle the extra load.
Missing shingles? High winds? We know that once your shingles start to curl, it’s much easier for winds to start lifting and ripping shingles off your roof. We look for signs of deterioration such as curling and missing shingles as well as the number of layers to provide you with a better assessment on the health of your roof.
Looking out for underlayments and ice and water shields and replacing metal flashing for added protection. If you’ve got a leak, we know what are the best practices for preventing leaks and it’s critical for many roofs to have the right underlayment and ice and water shields in the most vulnerable parts of the roof.
Educated in architectural theories, we not only look at the roof, we also look at the surrounding systems and areas including.
Adequate and proper ventilation to meet the latest building codes is a requirement most roofing contractors do not provide – most roofers only replace exactly what they see and do not realize your existing roof is under-ventilated and will not meet the new building codes.
Proper eavestroughs and downspouts to quickly channel water away from your home – most houses were built with inadequate eavestrough and downspouts causing premature deterioration of shingles in localized areas.
With the Qilin Roofing approach, we will give you the straight goods on whether you can repair your existing roof, or if you should replace it. Plus, we’ll let you know the best system for your roof which will meet your budget
