During the summer, a light-colored roof receives less heat through the roof. As a result, your air conditioner runs more efficiently, consumes less electricity, and saves you money on your electric bills. A dark-colored roof, on the other hand, would most certainly heat your home’s highest spaces.
Dark-colored roofing materials trap heat, making your attic and/or the top of your house warmer than lighter-colored roofing materials. However, the type of material used may have a significant impact on this.

Roofing tear-off and installation can be a very noisy operation. Roofers use construction equipment, hammer in shingles, and use whatever materials they need. Roof noises travel quickly, and the noise level of the job is also enough to annoy pets and small children.
Before you call your insurance company, you should call a roofer who will not only assess the roof damages, but can directly deal with insurance companies as well.
Your roof estimate should include the number of penetrations and the specific kind of boot that’ll go around them. The estimate should also include any flashing your roof needs. Flashing is metal placed anywhere the shingles butt up against something, such as a wall, chimney, or in open valleys.
Roof leaks are usually protected by home insurance plans if they are caused by a covered, or called, peril. Insurance rarely covers leaks caused by normal wear and tear, negligence, mold, or pests. Small leaks do not necessitate filing a claim, but major damage should be reported to the insurance provider as soon as possible.

When it comes to selling your house, a new roof is always a strong marketing tool. A roof that is nearing the end of its useful life or is leaking will depreciate the value of your home and should be replaced. Premium shingles, on the other hand, can not always result in the increase in home value that you foresee.
Asphalt Shingles: 15-30 years. Wood Shingles: 20-25 years. Rubber Roofs: 30-50 years. Forever Roofs: 50-75 years.
