Atlanta is a city rife with history and culture, but perhaps more than anything else, it’s a city of change. In fact, the population is constantly changing – every day new people, from students to newlyweds to retirees, come from all over looking for a place they can make their own in the big city.
However, what many people don’t realize when they move here and want to replace their roof is that they aren’t just replacing shingles and repairing tiles. They are also preserving the cultural heritage that goes back beyond living memory. More than just providing shelter from rain and sun or adding curb appeal with color and shape, roofs tell the story of the house and how it has changed over time.
Keeping that in mind, let’s talk about roofs and why you should consider getting a new one for your home or office space.
What Happens If You Don’t Replace Your Roof?
A roof is defined as “the covering on top of a building or vehicle to provide weather protection, sunshade, decoration, surface drainage, etc.” Based in Atlanta, Christian Brothers Roofing Contractors has helped countless customers find just the right roof for their homes based on their taste and budget. They are often also attempting to not only protect what lies underneath the roof but also maintain or even add to the cultural heritage of the neighborhood where they live.
Being based in Atlanta for as long as we have means we have worked with roofs of all kinds, shapes, and colors. We have also worked with a wide variety of roofing materials that exist – shingles like asphalt or cedar, metal roofs for flat or low-sloped homes, slate roofs which are popular in the Northeast but rarely seen around here; not to mention the dozens of brands and styles each available in multiple colors.
Does this sound overwhelming? Well, you can rest easy because our team at Christian Brothers Roofing Contractors is experienced with every type of roof on the market today. We have helped countless customers find just what they need so they can protect their home without breaking the bank for an expensive project; most people will only use 5% – 10% of their day!
Offering Expertise in the Type of Roofing You Want
What’s more, we also understand the impact a new roof has on the surrounding neighborhood. A good example of this can be found by visiting neighborhoods such as Little Five Points or Candler Park, which you can find just outside of downtown Atlanta. There you can see how much simply changing your roof can give your home an entirely different appearance. Thanks to our expertise in finding what works for anyone given their budget, we can work with any of the following options:
- Slate roofs – this is a product that goes back hundreds if not thousands of years and gets its name from the original material it was made of, slate rock. With so many colors and styles to choose from, you can find a slate roof that matches your home’s style perfectly.
- Fire damage restoration – this is a very high-priority option and one we recommend to everyone after a fire so you can get back up and running as soon as possible.
- Re-roofing – if your roof is getting a little too old and you want to get a head start on a project that will take years down the road, then this option is for you.
- Same tile roof replacement – this is for those who are lucky enough to still have the roof they installed back when their home was being built. After weathering dozens or hundreds of storms, you’re going to need a new roof sooner or later, and this option is for you.
Many Roofing Benefits
It’s not just the appearance that a new roof provides. It also protects the house from elements such as rain and snow, which results in damage to siding, insulation, and drywall, all of which can be expensive to replace down the road—not to mention energy efficiency! In fact, according to data from the United States Department of Energy, a new roof can reduce your heating and cooling costs by as much as 25%, which should be enough incentive to get you considering a replacement today!
In the end, it comes down to this – a new roof can benefit everyone, from homeowners to business owners. It provides just the right amount of protection for your home or office space, helps maintain cultural history in Atlanta neighborhoods, and can even give you a payback to go along with your investment.
