A home is generally considered to be one of the biggest achievements and investments in most people’s lives. A quality roof not only helps protect your investment, but it also adds to the value and beauty of your home. Whether you are repairing or reroofing your home, it is wise to educate yourself to ensure that you get the best value for your money.

It is unlikely that you will pay attention to roofing material options unless you are considering a new roof. It does help to research your roofing options depending on what your budget, personal preferences, needs and future plans are regarding your home.


At United Roofing & Raingutters, the staff takes pride in assisting you in selecting the roofing system that best meets your needs, goals and budget.

Many people are concerned with lowering their energy consumption. The company can give you ideas on how to accomplish this by suggesting Energy Star-rated products through heat reflective shingles and coating, proper attic ventilation and interior heat reducing products.

Attic ventilation through either solar fans or ridge vents will remove heat, moisture and humidity from your attic, while helping lower the temperature in your home. These cost-effective options also may help lower your electric bill by lessening the frequency and amount of air conditioning used throughout the year. Proper ventilation also will help extend the life of your roof by preventing premature aging of your shingles due to attic heat.


United Roofing & Raingutters is currently offering free solar attic fans for a complete reroofing project. The staff also can advise you as to which roofing system would best meet your needs and goals. Call 428-7947, or me directly at 351-2985, for a free estimate or to ask questions regarding your roof.

United Roofing’s reputation is everything as it is known for quality, but remembered for service. The company believes, “A job well done is worth doing, so do it right the first time with United Roofing.”
