5 Things to Consider When Selecting a Roof Color

Thanks to today’s shingle manufacturing technologies, homeowners can have roofing in virtually any color they choose. For some, this presents greater flexibility allowingthem get the exact color they desire. For others, the sheer number of choices can make the color selection process overwhelming. If you’re among the latter, read on as A-Top Roofing & Construction shares the questions you should ask yourself when choosing your roof color. 

Here are 5 Things to Consider When Selecting a Roof Color:

1. What color is my roof? Siding covers about half of your home’s exterior and complements the roof. Unless your siding is also up for replacement, you should think about how your roof will work with it. Additionally, take note of the roofing material. Some, like asphalt shingles, work with just about any siding profile. Tile or slate may need to be paired with certain types of siding.

2. Does my home have permanent components? Your home’s exterior may have permanent cladding like stone or brick, which have distinct colors that may help you narrow down your roofing color selection — unless you’re planning on painting over them. Other permanent components that you should pay attention to include copper gutters and installations that are part of your landscaping.

3. What’s my home’s architectural style? Some architectural styles are associated with certain color palettes that would make a radically different siding color look out of place. Take the time to research your home’s architectural style, paying special attention to its color palettes. 

4. What do my neighbors’ houses look like? If you live in a community governed by an HOA, you have most of the work cut out for you. Take a walk or drive around a few blocks just to get a general feel for your neighbors’ roof colors, which should give you an idea of what colors to choose.

Ensure your roof is ready for any inclement weather that hurricane season brings with a proper roof inspection by A-Top Roofing.

A Proper Roof Inspection is the Key to Storm Preparation for New Jersey Shore Areas

Here at the Jersey Shore, your roof is the main protection for your family during extreme weather events. Scheduling a professional roof inspection is especially important at this time of year in Central NJ as we approach hurricane season. If you suspect there may be a problem with your current roof, it is better to find out before an extreme storm event than after. A well maintained roof is paramount as hurricane season approaches and storm preparation becomes more important.

How Roofing Inspections Save You Money

If you wait for visible damage to your roof, it may be too late. According to the National Roofing Contractors Association, maintaining your roof is the single most important factor for determining the lifespan of your current roof.

If you find and fix minor repairs now, you can also extend the life of your roof. Hiring a professional roof inspector may be the first step in determining if you have a problem with your roof. Determining where the problem is and the best possible solutions for a roof replacement or roof repairs requires a professional.

What Your Roof Inspection May Uncover

Some storm damage might be easy to spot. Spots on your ceiling or tree damage on your roof are clear signs your roof may be in trouble. But what about more subtle clues? Roofers are trained to spot small signs of roof damage that can appear years before trouble starts. Identifying problems now before your home must withstand potential storms, high winds or even hurricanes with high winds and heavy amounts of rain is critical.

One of the many signs of an aging roof is when you lose the granules on older asphalt shingles. A-Top Roofing and Construction is trained to fully inspect your home’s roof system to spot signs of early damage or if your roof needs a to be replaced.

Three Key Elements of a Roof Inspection

Surface Inspection – The surface of your current roof will tell a story about its age and expected life cycle. Does your roof have mossy areas, missing shingles, cracked or curling shingles? A good roof inspection will include a gutter inspection to see if the granules are coming off the roof and settling in the gutters – a major sign of wear and tear.

Structural Inspection – Is your roof sagging? Roofing pros like A-Top Roofing and Construction are specifically trained to see if there might be underlying damage that has already started to affect the structure of your house.

Areas of your home roofing inspections usually include:

  • Gutter Systems
  • Facia
  • Soffits
  • Chimneys
  • Vents
  • Skylights

Interior Inspection – Your home’s interior also can tell the story about the health of your roofing system. A-Top Roofing will check for proper roof ventilation, sagging or stained ceilings, or signs of moisture in the attic or interior walls.

When it comes time to choosing a roofer, here are some of the boxes you should check when hiring a reputable roofing company.

Important Boxes to Check When Hiring a Roofing Company

There are over 10 million homes in the United States that are between the age of 20 and 30 years old. For many of those homes, it will soon be time to replace their roofs. When it comes time to choosing a roofer, here are some of the boxes you should check when hiring a roofing company.

All roofing companies are not created equal. When you start doing your homework and checking companies’ reviews, you should also be looking for a few other things that will give you confidence that you made the right choice.

1. How long has the roofing company been in business?

For almost 40 years, A-Top Roofing and Construction has been replacing residential roofs in local neighborhoods including Manalapan, Freehold, Marlboro and the Western Monmouth Area. Over that span of time, they have created a great foundation for how they treat their customers.

Be wary of a roofing company that is new. They might not be well established and may be cutting corners on insurance or short on experience.

2. Follow your instincts!

Sometimes the salesman will overpromise. Sometimes companies will try to pressure you into making a quick sale with an unrealistic price or price reduction. Sometimes the price will be very high, and the company will offer financing at a rate that is also very high.

Creating a good customer experience from the point of initial contact and through contract signing to installation day is critically important to A-Top Roofing and Construction. If your instincts are telling you something is off – it probably is.

3. Look for reasons to qualify a roofer – here are some examples:

Over the course of 4 decades A-top Roofing & Construction has replaced 4,000+ roofs.  A lot of their business comes from their reputation and word of mouth of other happy homeowners. Bolstering their reputation is the myriad of 5-Star Google Reviews and other reviews on various social sites.

make sure to hire a reputable roofing company like A-Top Roofing & Construction for your roofing project

“If you think something is more important than the customer, think again.”

Andrew Ferrara, President – A-Top Roofing & Construction

4. A full list of questions for your roofing contractor:

  • Is the price comparable to other roofing companies?
  • Are they fully licensed?
  • Are they fully insured?
  • Are they recognized by roofing manufactures like GAF and Owens Corning?
  • Do they have a variety of samples and colors to choose from?
  • Will they give you a written warranty?
  • How long is the warranty?
  • Is the warranty transferable if you sell the home?
  • Does a live person answer the phone if there is a question or issue with the roof?
  • Do they have a local physical office?
  • Do they have previous work references?

Selecting the right roofing contractor should be about getting an affordable roofing price, but that is not always the deciding factor. Some people feel more comfortable if the business has been around for many years. Others want to make sure the company has all the support and backing from the roofing manufacturers, which includes offering a great roof warranty. A-Top Roofing and Construction checks all these boxes and more.

An experienced company with the right tools and equipment to complete your roofing job quickly and affordably, A-Top Roofing and Construction has been repairing, replacing, and installing roofs in Monmouth County, NJ for close to 40 years!

How do you know it is time to replace your roof?

One of the most frequent questions we are asked is, “When do we know it is time to replace our roof?”

Most roofs should last between 20 and 30 years. Some roofs that have been replaced in the last 10-15 years might last 30-40 or more years. But factors like environmental conditions and frequency of severe weather, quality of manufactured materials and installation process can all have an impact on your roof’s longevity.

Looking for a roofing contractor in Freehold? A-Top Roofing has replaced thousands of roofs throughout Central NJ over the past 35 years.

You can determine it is time to replace your roof by inspecting it for signs of failure.

Some of the most common signs your roof is at the end of its life include:

  • Missing or cracked roof shingles
  • Decaying shingles
  • Curling roof shingles
  • Frequently clogged gutter systems
  • Blistered or peeling paint on the inside of the home
  • Stains on ceilings and interior walls
  • Your neighbors are getting their roofs replaced

Roof Replacement Process – Layering or Full Replacement

In certain instances, it is cheaper to layer and second roof on top of the first one. This can make the project more affordable. However, if your home already has two roofs layered on top of it, you will need to remove both layers and then install the new roof.

Roofing Material, Colors and Warranty

Another decision you will need to make is the roofs material, colors and style. A-Top Roofing has a showroom of roofing products from the leading roofing manufacturers to choose from.

How Long Should a Roof Last? Our 6 Tips to Maximize the Lifespan of Your Roof

How long should a roof last? A roof’s lifespan can vary greatly depending on when your homes was built, the geographic area of the home and what roofing material your roof is made from. In Central New Jersey, there are a large number of neighborhoods that were built decades ago, with many roofs nearing the end of their lifespan.

How Long Should a Roof Last in the Northeastern United States?

Roofs weren’t made to last forever, although some roofing manufacturers (Like GAF or Owen Corning) seem to last far longer than others. As roofing technology goes, roofing materials are better constructed and last longer than roofs in the past (many carrying a lifetime warranty).

Depending on the type of roofing material, where you live, and how well you maintain it, your roof could last anywhere from 20 to 100 years. Let’s go over how long different types of roofing materials are intended to last.

  • Asphalt Shingles – Average 20 to 40 Years
  • Cedar Shakes – Average 20 to 30 Years
  • Solar Shingles – Predicted at 20 to 30 Years
  • Metal Roofing – Average 50 to 70 Years
  • Slate Tiles – Up to 100 Years

Signs You Might Need Your Roof Replaced

People don’t often think about their roof until there’s an issue, which is counterproductive to maintaining your roof’s longevity. Waiting until something breaks, cracks or leaks can be detrimental to your home and can require a roof replacement much sooner than expected.

It’s important to maintain your roof throughout its lifespan with regular inspections, keep it clean from debris, clear out the gutters, and make minor repairs when necessary. A periodic roof inspection every few months might catch small problems before they become serious issues, requiring more extensive (and expensive) repairs.

1. You Notice Curling, Bending, Cracked or Missing Shingles

It is a good idea to get your shingle repaired at the first signs of damage, no matter how minor it may seem. Even if one shingle is damaged on your roof, it can comprise the entire system by allowing water to seep in and under the shingles. These leaks can be detrimental to the entire roof and your home.

2. Flashing Around Valleys, Chimneys, Windows, etc. Appears Damaged

Flashing is often one of the first things to go on the roof, which is critical because flashing is what keeps water from leaking into all the areas on your roof that meet a wall, pipe, ridge, or other roofing elements. If the flashing is cracked or damaged, it leaves your home highly susceptible to leaks.

3.  You Find Water Stains on Your Ceilings or Attic Floor

Water stains on your ceilings or attic floor are a sure sign that there is an issue with your roof. One thing to note is a water stain doesn’t always mean a leak, but it can indicate an issue with moisture in the attic, which can be related to a poorly insulated roof.

4.  There are Signs of Sagging on the Roof

A sagging roof means there’s been standing water in an area for a long time, and that sag can lead to huge damage or even a roof collapse. Contact a professional right away to inspect the roof for safety and determine the next steps.

5.  Moss, Mold, or Algae Grow on Your Shingles

Moss growth on the roof is one of the most common signs that your roof requires attention. These are all clear indicators that moisture is accumulating in an area on your home where it shouldn’t be, usually because there’s a leak somewhere you’re unaware of.

6.  Making the Best Decision for Your Home

If you notice any of the above issues as you do the visual inspection of your roof, it’s time to call the pros. A professional roofer can do a thorough inspection of your roof from top to bottom and pinpoint any issues that require repair. If there are too many repairs, they will recommend a full roof replacement.

When there are signs of trouble with your roof, it may be time to talk to a professional roofing contractor. Look for someone with plenty of experience and a company that has great reviews on Google and with third party endorser,  such as Angie’s List or The Better Business Bureau.

Should You Repair or Replace Your Roof? Some Factors to Consider from Roofing Experts

People take pride in their homes, so when your roof shows signs of wear and tear or starts to leak, you may feel overwhelmed. If you have been living in your home for many years, and you can see the warning signs, you may find yourself in the market shopping for a new roof.  Roofs certainly do not last forever, and it may be time to reach out to a roofing contractor to replace your roof or start thinking about roof repairs.

Should You Repair or Replace Your Roof?

When it comes down to it, there are a few general rules you should follow when deciding if it is time to repair or replace your roof. Repairing vs replacing a roof often comes down to the age of the roof, how it is performing and how it looks. The expected lifespan of a normal shingled roof is 20-25 years. If you have had your roof for 3-5 years and a few shingles are loose or missing from a recent storm, then you are a great candidate for roof repairs. On the other hand, if you have been in your home for 15+ years and the roof is looking worn and stained, replacing may be the best option for you.

  • Dried out and cracked shingles
  • If your roof looks wavy or there are dips in the roofline
  • Visible Leaks or stained areas on the inside of the home
  • Curing, missing or mossy shingles
  • Visible storm damage

Hiring A-Top Roofing and Construction will ensure a smooth home renovation experience from start to finish.

Renovation Rundown – Why a Roof Replacement Should be Part of any Renovation Project

What are the first steps in home renovation?

Central New Jersey has a substantial marketplace of older homes that were built between 1960 and 1995. A building boom at the Jersey Shore has also seen existing home values rise rapidly, and thanks to  the recent pandemic people are spending more time in their homes than ever before. With so much time spent at home working, entertaining and relaxing, people are upgrading the inside and outside of their homes like never before.

Home Renovation: Maximizing Resale Value

When setting budgets to renovate your existing home, people often start on the outside or exterior of the home. When renovating the entire outside of an older home, you might want to consider replacing the roof, gutters, siding, windows, and doors – this will maximize curb appeal and energy efficiencies.

Transforming your home from the ground up requires hiring a contractor who has experience in various areas and disciplines. Hiring a contractor who can show you the latest trends, colors, products, and warranty information  is key to beautifying the exterior of your home.

Home Renovation Rundown

Making plans for a renovation starts with deciding what you can live with and what priority you will give to each section of the home you’d like to renovate. Larger renovations require hiring qualified contractors to do the work.

Here is the rundown homeowners should follow according to Houzz:

  1. Plan – Include a vision board for each area you’d like to renovate.
  2. Set a budget, and then try to stay within that budget. Give yourself some flexibility to cover cost overruns.
  3. Hire a licensed and insured contractor who has stellar reviews and who has been in business for many years.
  4. Talk to your insurance company, especially if the renovations will increase the home’s value.
  5. Secure permits – Making sure you have the proper permits will also protect you (the homeowner) when the inspection process happens, ensuring the work has been done according to code.
  6. Prepare for mess and noise – Renovations can be both messy and noisy! Disturbing your everyday life should be held to a minimum by hiring a reputable contractor who can perform the work quickly and efficiently.

The Exterior of the Home – Hiring A-Top Roofing and Construction

Getting the most out of a renovation means selecting areas of the home with the biggest impact in terms of curb appeal, livability, and energy efficiency.

This checklist is the perfect guide to help you in preparing your home, connecting with a contractor and expectations for the home roof replacement.

The Importance of Gutter Cleaning

Homeowners are not always familiar with the issues that can arise from clogged gutters, but there are many. If water is not able to flow freely through your gutters and away from your home, damage can result in several different locations, from your roofing to your foundation. There are many reasons you should get your gutters cleaned out. Here is a look at some of those reasons.

Roof Damage

When your gutters are clogged with leaves, there is no room for water to flow. When water fills inside the gutter, it can flow over at the roofline. This results in cracked or damaged roof shingles. A cracked roof will allow water to penetrate through the cracks and into the home. Often the damage left behind involves costly repairs, including a rotten roof, damaged trusses and plywood, ruined insulation, and sheetrock damage. A clean gutter allows water to flow freely which allows the water to be directed off the roof and away from the home.

Overflowing Gutters Can Damage Landscaping

One of the first signs your gutters are clogged is hearing the water spill over the roof and pooling on patios and landscaped areas surrounding the home. You can easily damage the landscaping and plants by essentially drowning them. Standing water around the foundation of a home will eventually find its way to the lowest point of the home, which can lead to basement flooding or mold issues.

A-Top Roofing and Construction offers gutter cleaning services for our customers in Monmouth County, Northern Ocean County and parts of Middlesex County, NJ.

Damage to Brackets

Clogged gutters can fill with water and the weight of the water can damage the gutters and their brackets. Gutters can start to sag, pitch, or even fall from the weight. When the bracket fails, the gutter can fall from the facia and create even more damage to your home.

Pest Infestation

When gutters are filled with leaves, it becomes an ideal location for birds, insects, and small rodents to find and make a nest. Often these creatures eventually move from the gutter system and find a way into your home. A clogged gutter is one of the main reasons pests infiltrate into a home. With proper cleaning, you reduce the risk of pest infestation into your gutters and home.

Damage to Facia

The facia is the board that is behind the gutter system. This board can become damaged when the gutter is clogged with leaves. The facia of your home is a vital part of your home and gutter system.

Cracks in Foundation

When water flows over the top of clogged gutters, it can pool around the home’s foundation. As winter approaches, the water that freezes in and around the foundation will expand (much like an ice cube in an ice cube tray). When the water expands, it can generate cracks in your foundation which leads to bigger problems for the basement or slab of the home.

Wet & Moldy Basement

Leading water away from the home is vital to the overall health of your home. When gutters are clogged, the water does not run away from the home and eventually finds its way into the basement. If the rain is severe, flooding in the basement is likely. If the water is not removed from the basement, it can turn to mold which is not only bad for the home, but bad for the occupants of the home as well.
