Renaissance Roofing has been in business for 20+ years and we have seen a lot of changes in roofing technology and advances.
While the changes between roofing technology is visible between now and a hundred years ago, one might not know the leaps that have been taken in the past thirty years alone. Roofs have a greater purpose now; they’re used for more than just keeping unpleasant weather out of your home. Roofs are now more energy efficient. They may not use any energy to function, but they help your house by regulating internal temperature, absorbing heat, and keeping your home dry.
The materials used now are more efficient while still being aesthetically pleasing. You can now choose from a variety of colors to make your home more aesthetically pleasing. Fireproof helps reduce the spread of fire to the rest of your home while waterproof prevents moisture from seeping in, weakening the structure, and allowing mold to grow. Also with the different materials, roofs have longer, though varying, lifespans. Asphalt shingles can last for 20-30 years while metal shingles can last as long as 75 ( metal roofing warranties only apply to the paint not the metal). Companies also began to give warranties for their roofing of up to 50 years. Renaissance Roofing is GAF certified and we work with them on most of our roofing jobs. We love them because while many roofing manufacturers have leak only warranties GAF will repair a shingle the moment we notice it is looking damaged.
These advances in roofing technology are ones that we think will make huge differences in the way roofs wear and tear and how they age. We look forward to getting the perfect roof for your home and setting you up with a great warranty through a company like GAF.
