Roofing and Siding projects are two of the most eye-catching things you can do to the exterior of your home or commercial facility. At the same time, they can also be areas where you can realize improved energy efficiency as well. Let’s take a look at both projects.
When it comes to replacing your roof, there are several factors to consider. First and foremost is having an experienced roofing contractor that is both licensed and insured. Both of these criteria are for your protection so be sure you ask for proof of each.
Next is to consider the type of roofing you will need. For shingled roofs, we install the following types of shingles: asphalt, fiberglass, steel, and wood shakes. For flat and low-slope roofs, we install the following types of systems: hot asphalt, EPDM (fully-adhered rubber membrane), and PVC (hot-air welded single-ply vinyl membrane). For metal roofs, we install exposed fastener and standing seam systems.
South Arm Construction values roofing projects of all sizes. Some of the larger roofing projects include 145,000 square feet of shingles on an assisted living facility, 345,000 square feet of shingles on a high school facility, and EPDM roofing systems on several commercial facilities including a Marshall’s department store, a large city’s electrical department facility, and a school administration facility.
Much like using a licensed and insured contractor is important with roofing projects, it is equally important when it comes to your new siding installation. Be sure to ask for proof of license and insurance.
Next, you will need to decide what kind of siding you would like to have installed. Vinyl siding is the most common type of siding used for new construction as well as new siding make-overs. On higher-profile projects such as hotels, condominium complexes, and larger custom-built homes, cementitious siding is an excellent choice.
Finally, metal siding is a great choice for facilities such as garages & outbuildings, farm buildings, aircraft hangars, pole buildings, and factories.
