Most homeowners will eventually have to replace their existing roof with a new one of similar or greater material. While the investment is not a small one, a new roof can add value and curb appeal to your property. We only use quality shingles from GAF and Tamco, to bring you the best shingle on the market, along with the best warranty available. First Colony Roofing’s three locations in Sugar Land, Richmond and Rosenberg, TX are in the primary areas to serve the Greatwood and New Territory of Texas.
New Roof Installation
Our staff and crew go the extra mile when installing a new roof on your home. We protect the landscaping, condenser units and any other equipment installed close to your home. Also, we paint the pipe jacks and flashings to match the shingles. This helps the roof protrusions blend with the color of your new shingles. There are other features that are underlying components of the install, such as: Starter strips along the rakes (gables), which provides a vertical seal along with the horizontal seal on the eaves. We use 6 nails per shingle, compared to most, who use the minimum of 4. Using 6 nails per shingle, along with the full-perimeter starter strip provides a 130-mph wind rating on all architectural shingles. Synthetic Underlayment info…
Also, introducing proper ventilation is one of the most important things you can do while the roof deck is exposed. We use a raised, shingle-over style ridge vent that has proven to be the most effective way to vent the attic. We cut the decking on both sides of the ridge-beam, to allow an adequate amount of heat to escape from the attic space. The additional ventilation in the attic space can prove to be beneficial if your air handler is in that area. We take these extra steps because your investment is important to us. If you’ve trusted us with your business, we value that. Our approach is to give you the highest quality materials, coupled with the best installation methods while being affordable at the same time. We treat every job as if it were our house.
