Roofing 101: Don’t judge a roof (just) by its shingles.
A roof is one of the most important elements of a home, protecting it from the elements and helping to keep you and your family comfortable through extremes of heat and cold.
So what separates a top-notch roof from a questionable one?
High quality materials
There are many options for beautiful roofs, from traditional cedar shakes and asphalt shingles to slate, tile and metal. Always choose the best quality you can afford. But a roof is more than just what you can see. The right insulation, decking, underlayment and flashing are also essential to a properly functioning roof.
A roof is only as good as the crew that installs it. For example, are valleys, vents and chimneys properly flashed? Highmark crews adhere to best practices and are skilled in the architectural complexities of upper-bracket homes as well as more standardized roofing projects.
A careful crew
Stray roofing nails and damaged shrubbery shouldn’t be part of any roofing project. Highmark takes great care to contain and remove all debris. We also make sure to protect gutters, siding and foundation plantings below the roof throughout the project.
