The underlayment is an unseen yet important part of today’s roofing systems.

Rogers Roofing takes a look at the different types of underlayment available today.
Choosing a new roof for your home goes beyond just the color, material or style.

Every roofing system needs ventilation to regulate air from flowing into and out of the house. Although quality roofs do not absorb heat from the sun, they can still get warm enough to cause shingle damage and deterioration. Fortunately, proper ventilation can stop roof damage from occurring prematurely.

Granule loss is one of the most compelling signs that your asphalt shingle roof is nearing its end and needs replacement. After all, protective granules exist to shield the substrate from ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which renders materials brittle and more prone to breakage.
When buying a new roof, putting a premium on installation and material quality doesn’t guarantee longevity. Both are important, but overlooking the other things that contribute to premature failure can be costly.
