Traverse City Roofer Discusses Why Asphalt Shingles are No Longer a One Size Fits All Roof Covering Choice

Traverse City Roofing has made a solid reputation for itself in its part of Michigan by combining quality workmanship with very good customer service. It’s a company that also believes in giving its customers a variety of options when it comes to the types of roof coverings that they use. A good example is the many different asphalt shingle choices that Traverse City Roofing offers. While asphalt shingles used to be a one size fits all choice, that is no longer the case. A topic that those at this popular roofing company thought was worth discussing further.

The company spokesperson, James Thomas, says, “Most of us have gone into a neighborhood of row homes and seen that every single one has the same type of shingle on its asphalt roof. To me, that’s the same as painting every house in a neighborhood the same color. That’s because your roof is meant to be an important exterior feature that helps accentuate the looks of your home’s exterior. So, if asphalt shingles are your roofing material of choice, we have many interesting choices in them that can greatly enhance the exterior looks of your home.”

Thomas went on to state that the most popular type of asphalt shingles that they install are traditional 3-tab shingles. They have been a popular choice for a long time because they have fairly good durability and they are the most affordable type of roof covering. If laid down right by expert roofing crews such as theirs, they also look very good. He also talked about how many of their customers are now choosing what are known as architectural or dimensional asphalt shingles too. These laminated asphalt shingles are thicker and more durable than traditional 3-tab shingles and have an appearance that is enhanced by their ‘dragon’s teeth’ like appearance and darker granule accent bands.

The company also offers what is known as premium or designer shingles. Like dimensional shingles, they are laminated but they also are made to mimic the looks of more expensive roof coverings such as slate and cedar shake. Performance asphalt shingles are also an option and these have a Class 4 Impact Resistance rating which makes them ideal for use when spring and fall Michigan storms are also accompanied by high winds and hail. He also mentioned that there are even other variations of these types of asphalt shingles, so they have an asphalt shingle choice that will fit everyone’s style, budgetary, and durability needs. The staff at TC roofing is always happy to go over with a customer the many different asphalt shingle choices that they offer when they are looking to do a roof replacement or just feel it’s time to improve the appearance of their roof.

The company spokesperson went on to say that their crews specialize in doing both residential and commercial roof repair and installation services. This includes their willingness to take on everything from the smallest to the largest size roofing projects. He talked about how their roofing crews are also quick to respond to any type of roof emergency and how they have established a reputation for being one of the best siding installation and repair companies in Northern Michigan. Whether the crews at Traverse City Roofing are doing emergency roofing repairs or whole roof replacements, customers often express a high level of satisfaction with this roofing contactor’s services. Tim Edwards stated, “If you are looking for roofers, these guys offer the best roofing services in Traverse City. I needed emergency roof repair after a storm at my vacation home. I was so glad that I found a company that was able to act quickly and provide the services needed at a fair and reasonable price. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great roofing company that is honest and easy to work with.” Abbey Holcomb proclaimed, “They were quick to respond and quote, offer customized products and solutions that fit our budget, and the project was done within a day. Their crews are friendly and knowledgeable too. Would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs roofing work to be done!”

Those in Traverse city that are looking to have asphalt shingles put down as part of a new roof replacement project can contact the company by phone or email to arrange a roof inspection and job estimate.
