Thank you for considering Buckeye Roofing & Restoration. We appreciate the opportunity to represent you with respect to your roofing needs. As a reputable licensed contractor, we have an obligation to educate you so your decision is one you are comfortable making.
Customer service is a concept we feel very strongly about, and we apply all of our resources to ensure it. We approach every job as if it were our own, and you should accept no less.
Hopefully this site will assist you in the selection of a roofing contractor. We have been conducting business in this manner for almost 20 years. As we look to the future, workmanship and customer satisfaction will continue to be our top priority.
Your roof will only wear and perform as well as the materials used to cover it. As with any product, there are substantial differences. You should not expect a shingle warranteed by the manufacturer for 20 years to provide the length of wear that a 25- or 30-year warranteed shingle would give. However, during the time of the warranty period, the performances are all the same.
For appearance characteristics, dimensional shingles are differentiated from standard 3-tab shingles by a partially raised surface that will give a rougher or "wood shingle" appearance to your roof. These shingles are recommended for installation on steeper roofs to create the irregular surface appearance. Ask your personal roofing consultant for other products that are currently available, and for the pricing.
Underlying consists of plain roofing felt installed over the plywood surface of your roof decking. It provides a barrier between the deck and the new shingles. If your roof is being installed over existing shingles, the felt is not required. Low pitch roofs are underlaid with 15-pound felt, while steeper roofs (6-inch in 12-inch pitch or greater) require 30-pound felts.
At Buckeye Roofing & Restoration, we will not compromise quality with low-grade materials or inappropriate material for the job requirements. Since your home or business will likely be your most substantial investment, using sub-standard materials is not appropriate.
Our workmanship warranty covers two years. This warranty covers any problems that are due to faulty workmanship. Upon final payment, Buckeye Roofing & Restoration will provide the appropriate manufacture warranty for the materials used. Composition roofing (i.e., T-lock, 3-tab or dimensional) will range from 20 to 40 years. Wood shakes and shingle roofing range from 20 to 40. Tile ranges from 50 to lifetime, and flat or modified roofing ranges from 10 to 20 years.
