Your home's first line of defense against the region's harsh elements is its roof. A properly installed roof is more than just a covering; it's a shield, protecting your home and family. At Graves Brothers Home Improvement, we're here to emphasize the vital benefits of a roof installed correctly.

Weathering the Elements

A new roof can provide enhanced durability against a diverse range of weather conditions throughout the year:

  1. Snowy Winters
    • The Northeast is known for its snowy winters, which can lead to heavy snow loads on roofs, potentially causing damage if not properly managed.
  2. Rain and Moisture
    • Frequent rainfall and moisture can challenge the integrity of roofing materials. If not installed correctly, this can lead to leaks and water damage.
  3. Extreme Temperatures
    • Cold winters and hot summers will cause roofing materials to expand and contract, potentially leading to unnecessary wear and tear.
  4. Ice Dams
    • Ice dams can form on roofs in the winter, causing water to back up under shingles and potentially infiltrate the interior of the home.
The Role of Expert Roofing Installation

A roof is thousands of pieces delivered to your doorstep. It is the installer that must put them together correctly. Proper roofing installation is key to ensuring your home remains protected:

  1. Precise Material Selection
    • Expert installers consider the climate and select materials that can withstand the local weather conditions, ensuring longevity.
  2. Professional Installation Techniques
    • Experienced roofers employ installation techniques that prevent common issues like leaks, wind damage, and ice dam formation. Graves Brothers uses ice and water shield, underlayment felt, starter shingles at eaves and new flashing.
  3. Ventilation and Insulation
    • Proper ventilation and insulation help maintain a comfortable indoor environment and extend the life of your roofing system. This is achieved by installing new vents to ensure proper attic ventilation.
  4. Compliance with Local Codes
    • Knowledge of local building codes is essential to ensure your roof is installed in compliance with regulations, preventing future issues.
