Proper roof replacement can increase the value of your home and its desirability to potential home buyers. If you are planning to stay in your home for an extended amount of time, you can expect many years of worry-free living by making the right choice in roofing materials. Finding an insured and qualified roofer to install the materials is essential to a beautifully coordinated, leak-free roof. We will be happy to assist with all your roof replacement needs at Tom Buzzard Co. We proudly serve Apex, Cary, Fuquay Varina, Holly Springs, Morrisville, Raleigh, NC and the surrounding areas.
Selecting Your Shingles
Regardless of what your roofing needs may be, finding top-quality, 3-tab or architectural roof shingles is important. Whether you are selecting standard choices or the luxury dimensional, textured or laminated replacement shingles, you should understand the differences and make your choice based on more than price alone. While a 30-year shingle may be more expensive than a 25-year shingle, the money may be a fractional cost increase overall.
Consider the most durable roofing shingles if you plan to stay in your home for an extended period. You may find the added durability is worth the extra cost and it can help you avoid another insurance deductible should adverse weather conditions threaten your roof’s integrity. Searching for algae-resistant shingles can extend the useful life of your shingles, besides maintaining the curb appeal that is so important to your home’s value and resale.
Choosing the Right Roof Replacement Company
Without a doubt, finding an experienced and insured company can be one of the most important factors for a quality and leak-free roof. Fully insured and experienced roof contractors can make suggestions for the best materials and they may provide independent roof inspections. Look for certifications or preferred contractor status.

Material & Workmanship Warranties
Making informed choices about your roof may require you to compare material and workmanship warranties. This can be essential to making the best choices, even if you pay a little more for the shingles.
There is little recourse to be taken against a cheap “fly-by-night” crew that offers substandard materials. This is especially true if you are taken advantage of by the “hailstorm” chasers, which specialize in a “here today, gone tomorrow” roof replacement.
It is well worth the effort to find a reputable roofer, besides looking for one that offers the best warranty. Be sure to research customer testimonials and ask for references. This can be the best way to compare contractors, and it can help you find a professional roofer that will provide high-quality products and services. If you would like to learn more about the warranties we provide, please view our Workmanship Warranty page.
Other Factors to Consider
Ventilation and replacement of sub-roof materials may be other considerations when you are faced with a roof replacement. It’s important to find an experienced and reputable roofer that will offer the best advice for your situation. Attics that aren’t properly ventilated can cause warping of your roofing. If your roof is past its peak, it’s important to understand other factors that can keep it in tip-top condition throughout its expected lifespan.
