A leaky roof or damaged shingles are typically the most obvious signs of roof damage. A professional roofing contractor can help identify the areas of your roof that need attention and determine the best plan of action.
Everyone knows the roof of their house is important, but it's easy to forget just how important until something goes wrong. Don't wait until there's a roof leak, torn shingles, or other damage to think about the condition of your roof.
Even when there's no evidence of roofing problems, it's smart to have your roof inspected every year by an experienced roofing contractor.
Another time to schedule a roof inspection is after a severe storm. By taking care of basic roof maintenance and making minor roof repairs as required, you can avoid roof leaks that can damage your home and ruin your possessions.

The homeowner called Certitude after noticing their roof leaking. The roofing crew first laid down Roof Runner synthetic underlayment as a barrier to help preserve the overall roofing system. Next step was to install new Certianteed Landmark Pro shingles in ‘Weathered Wood’ color. A Certainteed 5-star lifetime warranty was selected to protect their investment.
Certitude was contacted by a resident in West Chester who was in need of a reputable contractor that would do the job right. We arrived promptly to provide an in-depth inspection and outline a solution tailor-made for this homeowner's needs.
For this roof replacement, we ended using Certainteed Landmark PRO shingles in Georgetown Gray colors per the client's choice.
This homeowner was tired of the headache caused by leaks during heavy weather, so they reached out to our team of specialists. We provided a high quality inspection to identify the problems, and crafted a plan unique to this home's needs.
For this roof replacement in West Chester, the home owner chose to use Certainteed Landmark shingles in Moire Black color. This was an excellent choice as you can tell- the shingle color makes the shutters really pop!
On this project the homeowner requested a slate-like appearance for their roof without the associated cost. They picked the Certainteed Highland Slate shingle in Tudor Brown. We also installed copper accents over the entryway, garage, and in the valleys.
This customer called Certitude after talking with their neighbor about who to call for a new roof. They chose Owens Corning Duration shingles in Estate Gray which was installed in one day.
This awesome house in the historic area of Media, PA had a slate style shingle installed to replace the old boring ones. We think the new look is great!
The homeowner asked us to replace both the siding and roof on their home to give it a more cohesive look than what they had before. Our inspection showed the roof was aging into disrepair and the siding wasn't protecting the home as effectively as good siding should.
They chose Certainteed Landmark shingles and Certaineed CedarBoards siding.
We think it looks amazing! (And the homeowner does too!)
When a roofing contractor evaluates the condition of your roof, the primary concern will be the roofing shingles or other finished roofing material. But before deciding whether roof repair or new roof installation is right for you, there are some other areas of the roof that should also be inspected.
Headquartered in Valley Forge, PA, CertainTeed is a leading North American manufacturer of building materials and specializes in the production of high quality roofing and other materials including vinyl siding, trim, fence, railing, decking, insulation, gypsum, and ceiling products.
CertainTeed manufactures a variety of high quality, durable asphalt roofing systems. Asphalt roofing shingles are the most commonly used covering on residential properties in the market. Asphalt’s primary purpose in roofing shingles is to serve as a waterproofing agent. Asphalt also holds the granules in place and adds to the overall strength of the roofing shingle. The best asphalt will stay flexible and will not dry out or become hard or brittle for the expected life of the roofing shingle.
Strip asphalt roofing shingles are single-layered asphalt roofing shingles typically designed to look like slate. Strip roofing shingles are usually the lightest weight asphalt roofing shingles available in the market. Built on a tough fiberglass base, each shingle provides resistance to blow-off and tearing.
Dimensional asphalt roofing shingles are manufactured as multi-layered products and provide a thicker and richer appearance on the roof (a multi-dimensional look). Dimensional roofing shingles typically are heavier weight than strip roofing shingles and usually have improved warranty protections, which can range from 30-years to Lifetime.
Premium asphalt roofing shingles are usually described as laminated shingles that have a differentiated appearance or functionality from traditional dimensional asphalt roofing shingles. These products may have designs that mimic “old-world” roofing shingles, like natural slate or natural shake roofing shingles. CertainTeed’s Grand Manor™, Presidential Shake™ and Centennial Slate™ shingles are prime examples of premium roofing shingles that provide an enhanced aesthetic appeal.
The functional condition of your roof is obviously your first priority. There are various reasons for a new roof, but many homeowners elect to have new roofing installed before the old roofing wears out, simply because a new roof can really upgrade a home's appearance. As experienced, professional Pennsylvania roofing contractors, we can help you decide if roof replacement or installation makes sense for your needs and budget.
If you are considering a roof replacement, there are some exciting new roofing materials available – like composite shingles that look like old-fashioned roofing slates but are made from recycled rubber. Modern asphalt-fiberglass shingles have never looked better – especially the architectural grade shingles designed with extra depth and texture.
