GAF, Home Remodel

Choose the Right Roof for Your Home

One of the reasons you work so hard is to keep a roof over your head. In fact, in terms of your home’s longevity and efficiency, a new roof is likely to be the most important purchase you’ll ever make. When it comes to choosing that roof, it’s important to know the differences between each option and how the right one might fit into your home and your lifestyle.

Asphalt

Tri-State Home Improvement offers asphalt shingles from GAF, the #1 manufacturer in North America. These are an affordable and durable option that has become a homeowner favorite because of its numerous style choices. The asphalt shingles we offer include:

  • Architectural Shingles – for those who want the blend of durability and the popular dimensional look of real wood shake shingles.
  • Premium Design Shingles – for those who want the option of giving their roof the appearance of real slate, wood shakes, hand-cut European shingles, clay tile, and more!
  • Architectural Specialty Shingles – for those who want the look of real wood shakes combined with the energy efficiency of the Timberline Cool Series or the impact resistance of Timberline Armorshield II.
  • 3-Tab Shingles – for those looking for a timeless, traditional design with superior performance.

Metal

Metal roofs are becoming more popular due to their resistance to impact, the speed of installation and their sleek looks. Tri-State offers two options for metal roofs:

  • Stone Coated Steel can look the part of any design you may desire, like slate, cedar shakes, or old-world tile, and provide unparalleled longevity. The level of impact resistance gives you peace of mind and the designs give you the look you’ve always wanted.
  • Standing Seam Metal roofs are made for those who want extreme strength and weather resistance. The only seams on this type of roofing are located in standing ridges that run the length of the panel, meaning fewer seams and, most importantly, fewer leaks!

The best part? You don’t have to wait for the installation to know how your new roof will look on your home with Tri-State’s GAF Virtual Home Remodeler. This innovative tool makes shopping for roofing fun by letting your home try on different roofs, trim and siding. The combination of possibilities are endless! Try it out to erase any doubt that the design choice you have made is the right one.

The whys of roofing

GAF_Timberline_HD_Slate

When it comes to keeping your home in good order, the roof above your head is no exception. Your roof plays a huge role in the appearance of your home. It is one of the things people first notice and can easily make or break the value of your home.

But roofing is more important structurally than cosmetically. The roof on your house protects you and your family from hazardous weather, leaks or other problems. A leaky or damaged roof can create problems in other parts of your home and even a small hole or leak can leave your home vulnerable to mold, bug infestations or health problems that only get worse the longer you leave them.

Prevent these problems from happening in your home by calling the experts at Tri-State Windows, Siding & Roofing or by filling out a contact us form on our website. We can help solve small or large roofing problems before they get worse AND we provide free estimates.

It’s important to have a game plan and talk with a professional about what the next step for your roof is. Choosing the right type of roof for your home is just as important as maintaining the one you have. We use the only the best materials from the top selling brands and we offer the strongest warranty in the business.

Tri-State carries GAF, the number one manufacturer of roofing products in America. We also carry architectural shingles, 3-tab shingles, architectural specialty shingles and premium design shingles, and if you have a flat roof you may need rubber roofing to seal out all the elements and Tri-State is one of the most experienced with rubber roofing in the region.

The roof over your head is important to us. Repairing or choosing new roofing can be confusing so let Tri-State help you! We offer free estimates and good, honest advice for our customers.
