Nash Roofing specializes in the following
Choosing your Contractor
Nash Roofing wants to make sure you get the best out of your experience even if you don't choose us to do your work. There are a few things to watch out for when choosing your contractor to do your job. Always ensure that your contractor has a Class A Contractors License. Contractors have to pass a rigorous test to obtain this license, so this ensures you have the right person on your job. Make sure you know how long a company has been in business; anyone can tell you how many contractors go in and out of business, and you don't want to be stuck with a roof that you aren't happy with and the contractor nowhere to be found.
How do I know if my roof needs replacing?Things like curled corners of the shingles, cracks or loss of granules can all be signs that your roof needs to be replaced. Many leaks go undetected for years without the owners knowing. If you need a roof assessment, we would be more than happy to do that for you just visit our Contact Us page and enter your information.
Should I do a roof Layover or a roof Tear-Off?Choosing a roof layover is less expensive, but it may cost you more money in the long run. Doing a roof layover traps heat in between the two layers of shingles which, in-turn, causes humidity to lay between the old shingles and your new shingles which may cause your new shingles to decay faster. Choosing a roof tear off is a better choice because we tear off all the old shingles and felt down to the plywood. This also ensures we can see if you have any rotten plywood that needs to be replaced and maybe suggesting you need better ventilation for your home. We also replace all the your flashing, and install ice and water shield, which is a required code by the state to have installed on all new roofs. Plus, you won't have to pay for a double-layer tear off when you decide to re-do your roof, if you decided to go with a roof layover years ago.
Why does it matter if my contractor is a Class A Contractor or not?Depending on what contracting license a contractor has determines the amount of money on a job they contractor can bid on. Meaning, this: A Class A Contractors can work on single contracts for $70,000 or more or contracts totaling $500,000 or more over a one-year period (company must have a net worth of at least $45,000.) A Class B contractor can work on single contracts for $7,500 or more but less than $70,000 or contracts totaling $150,000 or more but less than $500,000 over a one-year period. A Class C contractor can work on single contracts for $1,000 or more but less than $7,500 or contracts totaling less than $150,000 over a one-year period. To obtain a Class A Contractor license, you must also be in business for 5 consecutive years, and also pass an exam. This helps you know who your contractor is and if they are experienced enough to do the job. Nash Roofing is a Class A Contractor. We are able to do any kind of repairs, replacements, or new work that you may need. Some Class C Contractors won't tell you they aren't legally able to do your work and this could be a huge disaster in the hands of someone who isn't allowed to do your roof, or other project. Always be aware of the class of your contractor.
How can I avoid the black streaks on my roof? And what are they?The black streaks that may appear on your roof is algea. If your singles are old there is no way of preventing yourself or getting rid of the algea permantly. However, if you decide to get a new roof, the new shingles have an algea resistor in the shingles. Tiny copper granules are embedded in the shingles and when rain water runs down the shingles it releases a chemical from the copper killing the algea spores.
