Gutters Importance

Gutters Importance:

In today’s post our team of experts here at American Standard Roofing discuss gutters importance. We have noticed that a big majority homeowners do not spend a lot of time thinking about their gutters. It is unfortunate because understanding gutters importance may prevent costly home repair bills in the future.

What Are Gutters Anyway?

Question Mark

In order to understand gutters importance, homeowner need to learn what they are and what they do. Gutters funnel water off of the roof and away from your home. This consequently protects your siding, windows, doors and foundation from water damage.

How Do Gutters Protect Your Home?

Many homeowners do not realize gutters importance until after the damage is done. We are here to address that issue. In order to full understand gutters importance, homeowners should realize how much damage can occur when their gutters are clogged, leaking, or broken. When gutters aren’t functioning properly, rainwater runs off the roof of the house. This results in rainwater collects on the ground near the foundation. Heavy rains can result in standing pools of water. This is bad because water seeps in to the foundation. This can cause a bunch of problems.

Benefits of Gutters:

Below is a list of things our team came up with to show gutters importance. If homeowners are cognizant of these, it can help them save a lot of costs and trouble in the long run.

  • Stop from potential flooding.
  • Help in preventing cracked foundations by not letting water seep in.
  • Help prevent infestations – standing water can cause insects and other creepy crawlers to take over your home.
  • Gutters prevent mold from growing. Standing water make it easy for mold to grow.
  • Help soil from eroding.
  • Protection from paint damage.
  • Helps preventing rusting from outside building products.

Gutter Maintenance is Important Regardless of Climate:

Residential Versus Commercial Gutters

Our team advises that homeowners need to cater for gutters importance irrespective of local climate. This is because homes will have rainwater runoff regardless of extreme conditions. Even in moderate rain fall season homes have considerable amount of runoff. Clogged or damaged gutters can cause these above mentioned problems with ease.

Southfield Leaking Roofs: Quick Guide for Homeowners

Southfield Leaking Roofs

Southfield Leaking Roofs:

In today’s post our panel of experts here at American Standard Roofing discuss leaking roofs. And Southfield leaking roofs in specific. This is an important issue for homeowners. Today we will try to identify the sources for Southfield leaking roofs, and how quickly identifying them can help in stopping small issues turn into bigger problems.

Very First Step:

First Step

Our team explains that the very first step to any such issues is to stop the leak wherever it is happening. Because of the climate Southfield leaking roofs need extra attention. Natural elements are not roofing material friendly. Water, in specific can penetrate almost anything. All forms of precipitation can prove to be a roofing system’s Achilles heel. Here at American Standard Roofing, we strive to install roofing systems that tolerate all natural elements in all seasons. Not only that, we also want to make sure precipitation does not creep it’s way inside the roofing system.

Determine the Source:

Source

Here in Michigan, we have a lot of precipitation. In order to stop Southfield leaking roofs it is important to identify source for that leak. We all know that leaks are simple to repair. The bigger task however is determining where that leak is occurring. In our experience, when homeowners identify a leaking spot in their ceiling, they often assume that the leak is right above that. That is not the case most of the time, in our experience. Leaks are sneaky. They have a tendency to travel down rafters or edges. That spot on the ceiling can also be condensation gathering up. We have seen our fair share of leaks thought to be as roof leaks. They were actually plumbing leaks. Another one was an air conditioner leak which traveled on to that spot in the roof.

Sources for Roof Leaks:

Leaks

In today’s post, our team has identified some common sources for leaking roofs. Our team advises checking against all these things before customers can come to a conclusion. If customers are still unable to figure things out we recommend contacting professionals for best results. Here are a few of the main sources for Southfield leaking roofs:

  1. Most important: missing or damaged shingles. Also make sure seams are in tact.
  2. Inspect flashings and seals. If they are damaged that means it is suspect.
  3. We always emphasize on the importance of proper attic ventilation. Improper ventilation gives way to moisture. You do not want accumulation of condensations anywhere near the roof.
  4. Ice dams are a major problem especially in winters. They prevent water from running off and force water to go underneath shingles. Big red flag.
  5. We have seen skylight flashings improperly installed giving way to water. We have also seen old flashings give out. Keep an eye out for them.
  6. Strong winds and rain. These cause damage to even the best roofing systems.

Replace Roof Or Repair: Important Tips For Homeowners

Repair or Replace Roof

Good decision making can have a huge impact on any homeowner’s maintenance costs. Roof is a key component of any structure. More often than not, it is overlooked simply because it is not easy to access. In this article, our team of experts here at American Standard Roofing will discuss whether you should replace or repair roof when it seems like it needs maintenance.

Replace Roof Or Repair: Cost Consequences:

Whether you repair or replace roof, either one of these options will have associated costs. Obviously, the very first decision any homeowner needs to make is whether to simply repair the roof with patch up jobs or have complete re-roofing done.

Repairing Roof:

Roof Repair

As common sense would dictate, when it comes to the repair or replace roof conundrum, repairing is easier and inexpensive. A repair job usually involves replacing shingles. Torn or damaged shingles can removed and new ones put in place very easily. It might not be as aesthetically pleasing however because patch job may be obvious from afar because of faded and new roof colors of new shingles and older color of older existing shingles. Either way, a small price to pay if the repair would extend the life of homeowners roof for another decade or 15 years or so. This is a good option if you are planning selling your home in the next few years. Just ask your roofing professional to order matching shingles because an obvious patch job not only looks unappealing, it also might have a negative impact on property’s value.

Complete Roof Replacement:

Complete Roof Replacement

Even if only part of your roof is showing signs of wear, it’s wise to consider doing the entire job while the crew is on-site with iall of it’s equipment such as ladders, scaffolding and other materials. The reason why our team recommends this is because having a complete re-roof done at one time will be less expensive than doing one part now and the rest of the roof in a few years (which trust us, you will need to invest in).

Once you’ve decided to re-roof, you’ll have to decide whether to install your new roof over the current one. It’s either this or whether to tear the old one off. Once again, the choice comes down to saving a little money now and risking greater costs down the road. Or spending more now to do the job right and minimizing future costs. Once the contracting crew is up there, if you have only one layer of asphalt shingles, you may decide to have them removed even though you don’t have to. But again, doing that may save you money in the future.

Do Your Homework Whether it’s Repair or Replace Roof:

Whether it’s repair or replace roof, our team here at American Standard Roofing advises homeowners to follow the following guidelines:

  1. It is very important to obtain multiple quotes from same and different contractors. Whether it’s repair or replace roof, it helps in comparing process and the gives an idea of amount of needed work on your roof.
  2. Always ask contractors about the kind of warranty they provide on both labor and material. Reputable contractors almost always have more to offer in this regard
  3. In this day and age, reviews tell a lot about business. Go online, talk to people and get referrals. The better the reviews, the happier people are and it works in homeowner’s favor looking to repair or replace roof.
  4. Make sure that the contractor you are hiring is ranked with BBB and has a positive rating. Better Business Bureau has been around for a while and can help with identifying good contractors from the bad ones.
  5. Make a decision whether investing in a new roof is what you want or if you are okay with more frequent repair jobs. Most important decision when it comes to repair or replace roof.
  6. Make sure the contractors are licensed, bonded and insured. The last thing homeowners want is the liability falling on their heads for any mishaps that might arise during projects.

Our Advice:

While we understand that initial costs for a re-roof may be much more than a simple repair, a new roof will last homeowners for decades. A complete roof replacement job will never bother the homeowners for at least a decade or more. It becomes less of a hassle for homeowners because with roof repair chances are you will be contacting someone to fix it again very soon. Our bottom line: In the long term, you’ll end up with more money in your pocket.

Shingle Blowoff Reasons: A Comprehensive Guide by ASR

Shingle Blowoff

Shingle Blowoff is Common:

Shingle blowoff is a very common phenomenon. In today’s post our team of experts here at American Standard Roofing will discuss shingle blowoff in depth. Like many Metro Detroit Michigan residents discovered this winter, wind is a very powerful force. Every year the storms blow in, and leave wreckage in their wake. Unfortunately, that wreckage sometimes includes shingles from your roof.

What To Do:

Tarp

If you wake up and see shingles all over your yard, the first thing to do is call a few roofers to get a couple of estimates. Have a tarp installed. The quicker you can do this, the better. Exposed elements can cause more damage and leaks to your home.

Get a Professional Opinion:

Expert Advice

Even though you might only see shingles blown off on the ground, there could be more damage that you can’t see from the ground. Hail can crack shingles and damage flashing for example, but you won’t be able to see that unless you are up on the roof. The best plan is to bring out a professional as soon as possible.

Was the Roof Installed Properly?

Southfield MI Flat Roofers

Ask your contractor why the shingles blew off. Most shingles withstand 100mph winds. Check your shingles for installation if they are blowing off.

Technical Reasons for Shingle Blowoff:

Complicated

There are a couple of things that could be happening resulting in a shingle blowoff.

  1. Each shingle has a strip across the top of it where the nails have to be placed. If the roofer was lazy and landed a few nails off of the strip, then that shingle hasn’t been securely fastened. Check to see if this was a reason.
  2. Each shingle also has an adhesive strip on the back which needs to be clean. Dirty adhesive strips can lead to improper sealing. This would leave your shingles literally flapping in the wind.

Contact Your Insurance Company:

Insurance

Contact your insurance company after finding real issue. If the roof was improperly installed from the beginning, you are likely to have continuous problems with it. We find that it is almost always cost effective to replace roofs rather than repairing them.

Proper Attic Ventilation: Quick Overview For Homeowners

Proper Attic Ventilation

Proper Attic Ventilation:

In today’s post, our panel of experts here at American Standard Roofing discuss the importance of proper attic ventilation. Maintaining a proper attic ventilation system in your attic is essential for protecting the efficiency of your home and also for helping establish a comfortable living area. There needs to be a balance between the air intake and air exhaust near your roof edge. The combination between proper building insulation and purposeful flow of air is the most important component of a durable and energy efficient home.

Types of Damages That Can Occur:

Types of Damages

There are several types of damage that can result from improper ventilation. These are:

  1. Premature aging of your roofing system.
  2. Breaking wood framing.
  3. Damage to your exterior or interior paint.

Our team advises not to undermine the importance of proper attic ventilation. Do not assume that completely blocking the air out of your home is the best decision in the long term. This is a mistake homeowners often make when installing their insulation.

Types of Ventilation:

Proper Roof Ventilation-WinterProper Roof Ventilation-Summer

There are different types of ventilation that you can consider:

1. Attic Fans:

These usually reduce the heat in your attic by bringing in cooler outside air from either soffits or gables and pushing hot air to the outside. You need to ensure that your attic doesn’t have blocked soffit vents and is well sealed from the remainder of your house. Otherwise you may witness that your attic fans suck conditioned air from your house and use your air conditioning to cool off your attic area, which is very costly and inefficient.

2. Rafter Vents:

Our team strongly advises to cover your attic floor and seal air leaks. They also ensure that the soffit vents are clear and there is room for outdoor air to move into the attic from the soffits and out through the gable or ridge vents. Installing rater vents is as simple as stapling them straight to the roof decking. They should be placed at the point where your ceiling reaches your floor.

3. Ridge Vents:

Ridge vents are usually installed at the top of a sloped roof and allow hot, humid air to escape a building’s attic. A well set up ridge vent will increase energy efficiency and prolong the life of your roof. There are generally two types of vents: metal ridge vents and shingle-over vents. To ensure that a ridge vent works according to your expectations, it needs to have proper intake of fresh cool air, and equal flow of exhaust. Before you begin installing ridge vents you need to remove cap shingles and any wood sheathing. Then you can proceed with the installation of the shingle or metal ridge vent.

Food for Thought:

Food for Thought

Keep in mind that proper ventilation is as important as good insulation of your home. Locating air leaks is as important as ensuring you have a good ventilation system in place. Leaking air is damaging both in the winter when warm air rises up and eventually escapes to your attic, as well as during the winter when cold air can be sucked from your attic. So make sure that you focus on both proper insulation and ventilation in order to increase your home efficiency and prevent any potential damage.

Roof Insulation Importance & Science Behind it: Quick ASR Guide

Roof Insulation Importance

Roof Insulation Importance:

In today’s post our team of experts here at American Standard Roofing discuss roof insulation importance. Most homeowners are not aware that 40% of both your cooling and heating costs are associated with roof insulation. This gives roof insulation importance a whole new meaning. Imagine almost half of your energy bills associated with roof insulation. Our team of experts discuss further.

The Science Behind Insulation:

Mapping Heat Loss

Our team will discuss the science and physics behind the whole insulation process. This will help homeowners understand the importance of roof insulation.

Lack of Insulation: Winters

cold

In order to understand the importance of roof insulation, we must first understand the science behind it. Our team explains that warm air rises up as long as nothing is blocking it. In contrast, colder air will tend to drop. Now bring insulation into the equation as this highlights the importance of roof insulation. Now think of a roof without insulation. If a homeowner is heating a room, that heated air will go up and touch the ceiling. This will end up warming the ceiling. Without insulation, this warmth gets transferred through the ceiling, and outside the home.

Thermal Cycle Effect:

Thermal Cycle Effect

In addition, this loss of the heat results in the cooler air ‘dropping’ in the room. Consequently, you end up with a cycle of cold air dropping down and warm air going up. This is called thermal cycle effect. This will end in homeowners losing a lot of warmth. Homeowners will have to crank up their hearts and furnaces to keep a home warm. As our readers can see, this will end up with high energy bills.

Lack of Insulation: Summers

hot

Now consider the importance of roof insulation during summer times. During a hot day the roof space gets very hot. The ceiling and roof space will have a lot of hot air just sitting on top. This will result in everything being heated up. As the ceiling starts to get warm and starts making the air around it warm too. Air conditioners try to cool down rooms, but they are having to work extra hard now. With insulation in place, the outside heat will not get to the ceiling keeping the room temperature inside the home low. That is why our team insists on talking about importance of roof insulation throughout the year, not just winters.

What is The Solution?

Answer

Our team advises mainly two solutions:

  1. Most importantly, get your roof insulated. Trust us when we say that it will pay-off in the long run.
  2. Properly inspect your doors and windows. We especially recommend those areas where you spend most time, like living room. Just make sure you have sufficient wind and natural element proofing.

Roofing Goals And How Long Term Planning is Key!

Roofing Goals

Roofing Goals:

In today’s post our team of experts here at American Standard Roofing talk about our roofing goals and how long term planning can help us achieve our desired results. Roofing goals are important to be established if you are a small business owner looking to do big things and we have done just that.

Big Picture:

Big Picture

Our mantra is if you don’t see the big picture, then you tend to lose focus of what really matters. Therefore, it is important to find a perfect balance. From a roofer’s perspective some things are important to note for roofing goals. Business has evolved and many industry leaders have now decided to completely throw out the idea of the five year plan. Why? Because the landscaping is changing so fast. The thought is that anything beyond a one year projection is just a hypothetical fantasy. Even in the home improvement industry, we are seeing things progress quicker and quicker.

Internet is our Friend:

Internet

There are some new up and coming and older companies on the internet these days. For a small roofing business to succeed integrating with these is a great idea. Additionally, there are countless other startup companies that are attempting to infiltrate this murky landscape. Some succeed and some burn out quickly. It is up to the small businesses to know who to invest with and make sure that they have short-term goals ready for long-term success.

Small Business Owner Advice:

Good Advice

So then, as a small business owner, where do you focus your time and efforts? Constructive short term goals is the answer. Question yourself this: is there any way that you can position yourself to be in a favorable position when something like this happens? The decision might be a gamble but it will be smart decision nonetheless. Finally, we think it is better to at least try something in the interim, and if at all possible to accomplish goals that will serve a short term purpose as well.

Synthetic Versus Felt Underlayment? A Brief Overview by ASR

Synthetic versus felt underlayment

Synthetic Versus Felt Underlayment:

In today’s post, our team of experts here at American Standard Roofing discuss synthetic versus felt underlayment. Deciding the best underlayment option for your project can be challenging. In order to make the right decision, you need to understand what alternatives for roofing underlayment. Homeowners also need to consider the value they deliver after installments.

Things To Consider:

Pros & Cons

Our team advises that homeowners should always consider the following two things when considering underlayment:

  1. Pros and Cons of the types of underlayment.
  2. Specific uses of these underlayments.

Questions to Ask Yourself:

Questions

It is not easy choosing between synthetic versus felt underlayment. Our panel of experts advise asking yourself the following questions:

  • Do I need a more durable and water resistant underlayment?
  • Is roof in need of vapor protection?
  • Do I need protection from likely storm damage?
  • Do I need protection from resins?
  • How much am I looking to spend?

Consider Needs of the Project:

Needs of The Project

Synthetic versus felt underlayment is not an easy decision. It becomes easy however once homeowners consider the needs of the project. Every project is different. Some important facts to consider when deciding between synthetic or felt underlayment are as follows:

  1. Usage.
  2. Budget.
  3. Durability.
  4. Safety.

Deciding between these factors is important. It also varies individually based on circumstances and resources at hand. For example, metal or slate roof requires different vapor protection than that of a standard asphalt shingle underlayment. On the other hand, synthetic underlayment might be safer for a steeper roof which requires a better walking surface.

Types of Underlayment:

Below we will discuss both synthetic underlayment and roofing felt. As we explained earlier, choosing which ones depends completely on what homeowners specific need and requirements.

1. Roofing Felt:

Felt Underlayment

In simple words roofing felt is a felt paper inundated in a compound consisting of asphalt and other water resistant materials to achieve a coating sheath. Felt usually comes in #15 or #30 rolls, which are 36 inches wide. This type of underlayment will be ideal for you if your budget is limited. It has been used quite a bit by commercial roofing companies and has proven to be durable and reliable. In addition, felts offer ideal fire rating and do not burn quickly.

2. Synthetic Underlayment:

Synthetic or Felt Underlayment

When compared to roofing felt, one of the cons of synthetic underlayment is price. It costs more. However if the price is not taken into account, the benefits of this type of material are numerous. They include: extremely lightweight, safer for walking, high durability during strong storms, water and vapor resistant, very suitable for metal roof installations, lays smooth and flat on the roof.

Pricing for Both Kinds:

Pricing

When it comes to pricing the two underlayment options, the cost varies depending on the brand. It also depends on quality and applications. However, generally speaking a 15# roll of felt costs between $20 and $30 and covers around 400 – 440 sq. ft. In comparison, synthetic underlayment may cost between $150 and $175 per roll. Each roll will cover an area of about 1000 sq. ft. Labor costs are also higher for synthetic underlayment due to the additional care required for its installation.

Roof Installation: ASR’s Guide to Proper Method & Procedure

Roof Installation Proper Method

Roof Installation Proper Method:

In today’s post, our panel of experts here at American Standard Roofing discuss proper roof installation methods. Our team explains that most jobs can be done in different ways depending on the contractor and will give a few tips that will help determine roof installation proper method for homeowners.

Manufacturer Handbooks/Manuals:

Bad Design

Our team strongly suggests referring to manufacturer literature. This will help in understanding and application of material. Almost all manufacturers have specific instructions on their product installations. Our team explains that it is the roofing companies responsibility to properly train their employees. This is so that you can be 100% sure that you are getting that new roof installed properly. It will also help that the manufacturers warranty is not being voided because of unacceptable practices or material.

Good Installation Goes a Long Way:

Proper shoes and clothes

Our team advises that it is very important that everything is installed the first time around to perfection. This is to avoid issues in long term. These issues can include leaks and other service issues. Remember that service can rack up costs for homeowners.

Handle Issues Promptly:

Hammock

Our team recommends customers to be proactive. Procrastination always leads to high costs. Homeowners should always look for contractors that have a full time service department. You want a service technician to be able to get to these problems within 2 days. You also want somebody that is going to be capable of making the problem completely disappear.

Always Get Your Warranties:

Lifecycle

Finally our team advises to get your labor and material warranties. This is an important one. If a roofing company is not willing to stand behind their work then you should at least be a little more suspect. It is not enough to rely on the manufacturers warranty, even if that does include labor as well. Bottomline: look for a company that can get there quick, fix the problem, and deal with the manufacturers themselves.

Roof Professional Assessment & Importance in Winter Time

Roof Professional Assessment Checklist

Roof Professional Assessment:

Having a roof professional assessment done is extremely important for homeowners. It is even more important when it is winter time. This is because a roof professional assessment can save homeowners costs and provide for a better and efficient home in the long run.

We have all the answers here at American Standard Roofing. Our experts will try to answer he common question on everyone’s mind this winter. That is whether it is smart to replace roof during this time of the year.

The answer? It depends.

Leaks:

Roof Leak

Roof issues can happen for multiple reasons. One of the most common type of problem is leaks. These typically start out small. They eventually however turn into bigger problems. Even a small roof leak can cause major damage to your home. In addition, roofing system breakdown has the potential to raise some deeper issues. Here is a list of some issues.

  1. Structural damage to the building.
  2. Blistering or peeling of walls on the inside and the outside.
  3. Deeper damage to inside walls.
  4. Damage to flooring.
  5. Molding.
  6. High energy costs.

In addition to the above mentioned possible issues, it can also mean a combination of these problems too. Because of above mentioned reasons, our team here at American Standard Roofing recommends roof professional assessment. It is always better to safe than sorry.

Emergencies Are Exceptions:

Emergency Exceptions

This goes without saying. If it’s an emergency situation, you will need a roof professional assessment. Consequently the roof will need to be repaired or replaced regardless of outside weather. That said, we did an earlier post for homeowners to not get pressured when looking for roof professional assessment or any purchase. We always recommend homeowners to do their homework. This includes getting multiple quotes. It also includes finding best bang for your buck.

Extreme Temperatures Require Roof Professional Assessment:

hotcold

Weather fluctuations can be very harmful to your roof. Roofing materials contract and expand with temperatures. Deeper issues can arise causing waste of resources unless you take care of your roof. That is why we highly recommend roof professional assessment.

Cold Winters Mean More Potential Damage:

Extreme Temp

Roof replacement depends on variety of factors. Deep and cold winter in your region can result in blow offs and sealing issues. That will make it a really tough winter for those living inside the home.

Roofer’s Prospective:

Gutter Worker

From a professional contractor’s perspective, harsher conditions also mean a riskier workplace. It also means extra effort put in for quality work. In addition, below freezing temperatures tend to have a knack for increasing chances of failures when installing new roofs. It would require extra time. Some cases extra materials as well.

Our Recommendation

Good Advice

Our advice to our readers and homeowners is simple. Have roof professional assessment done today. Once you decide to go ahead with repairs/replacement, visit the manufacturer’s website for the material being used. Be sure to check out all the installation information there. If the manufacturer suggests that said it would be okay as long as the product is installed a certain way, ask your contractor. Remember this. When in doubt, check with the manufacturer. Also  talk to your contractor.
