Work With The Best
A roof is your home’s top most protective layer against the elements, but it can also be a design statement. We specialize in asphalt shingles because of their relative low cost and ease of installation. Choose from a variety of beautiful choices with complete protection, including architectural shingles. Let us replace your hail-damaged roof and put a stop to those irritating leaks. And for your peace of mind, our work is backed up with a manufacture and labor warranty. Let our Team manage your roofing job from start to finish so you don’t have to.
Premium High Definition Architectural Shingles
We use only the best materials when it comes to providing protection for your home’s roof. Some Atlanta roofing contractors will use cheaper materials in an attempt to save themselves money and increase their profit. We do not work that way. It is our intention to educate the home owner about all of the different roofing options so that they can make an educated decision. Please see the diagram below for an example of many of the different roofing areas that need to be addressed during a roof replacement.
Standing Seam Metal Roof
Just as with shingles there are two types of metal roofs: inexpensive and inferior or expensive and superior. Some roofing companies install the inferior thinner ribbed panels that have exposed screws. This is better suited for a barn or an out building. For a home the superior thicker gauge Standing Seam panels are the only way to go. Standing Seam roofs do not have any exposed screws. Each row of screws is covered by the next interlocking panel. The edges are hemmed over the metal drip around the perimeter and seamed tight guaranteeing no water entry for decades to come. The metal ridge pieces are installed using rivers. Prior to installing the Standing Seam metal panels we install a high-temp weather membrane on the entire wood decking to prevent “oil canning,” oval warping that occurs from heat. It is imperative that all shingles be removed and the membrane be installed in order for the roof to perform for decades. We are experts at installing these types of roofs and have experience to cover the details.
What to Expect:
When you choose to work with Heavenly Home Pros we will assign a Project Manager to your job. He will handle every aspect of your roof replacement. When the materials and dumpster are schedule for delivery he will contact you the day before to let you know when these items will arrive. The Project Manager will also be on your job first thing in the morning to make sure that things are running smoothly.
If you decide to contract with us to have your roof replaced, the following list will inform you of what to expect.
The materials that we use are delivered by our supplier. Once they arrive, our crew is usually there to install them within a day. Because of Mother Nature it can be difficult to set an exact date to complete your job. Material availability and work load can also affect the project date. There are usually two types of shingles sent to a job. One is a three tab shingle that is used as the starter strip (color will not be seen) and the other shingles are the brand, style, and color that you requested to be installed. You will have a choice of a 25 year 3 tab or a 30 year architectural (these are the shingles that have a 3-D look).
When we handle a roof project we remove the existing layer of shingles. We will place tarps on the ground around your home to catch falling debris and to protect your yard. There will be a thorough clean up of the exterior of your premises, however, we can only pick up approximately 97% of the nails that fall around your home. We use a large magnet to pick up as many nails as possible. It is a good idea to cut your grass very short the day before installation, because the magnetic rollers do not do the job properly in deep grass.
Your Contract prices are determined utilizing access to the driveways for our trucks, as well as electricity. If exterior plugs are not available, please run an extension cord through a window or door.
Satellite Dish, Antennas & Solar Panels
We cannot guarantee that your satellite dish will not need to be re-tuned after installation. Also, from time to time cable connections can be loosened during a roof installation. We are not responsible for this. Arrangements to remove and replace solar panels are the sole responsibility of the owner.
Light Fixtures, Mirrors, and Pictures
These items can fall if not firmly attached to the wall or ceilings. We suggest that you check to make sure they are secured. If in doubt, take them down. Small cracks or crow’s feet may sometimes appear in older plaster and sometimes small particles of the acoustical ceilings may fall. We cannot assume responsibility of these items as a result of re-roofing.
Wiring & Air Conditioning Lines
Electrical, telephone, security and air conditioning lines should not be installed directly underneath the roof deck. If you are aware of any such lines, we must be notified immediately. We cannot be responsible for the puncture of improperly installed lines or lines within three inches of the roof deck.
Trees & Shrubs
If you have low hanging branches over your roof, some trimming may be necessary. Our men will only cut those limbs which limit our ability to do an efficient job. In some cases, you may prefer to have the tree or trees trimmed by professionals before we begin our job.
At the end of each work day and upon completion of your job, please check the interior connections of your heater and hot water heater vent pipes.
Left Over Material
Our proposals are based on a complete job. Any leftover materials belong to us unless otherwise stated in your contract. Generally we send more materials to the job site than is estimated to make sure the crews do not come up short. In addition, our crews carry some extra materials with them. Even though it may appear that you had some extra material left over, that may not be the case.
You may notice “lumpy” or uneven shingles. These will lie down flat once the sun has had time to heat them. Inspect your roof from the ground before we come to observe natural sags or high points in decking. These are generally not structural concern and they will look the same after we re-roof your home. Rafters, decking, and houses settle over time creating these imperfections. If we discover a bad or rotten sheet of decking, we will replace as indicated in your contract.
When our dumpster company comes to retrieve their dumpster, there are often nails, screws and other debris left that was under the dumpster. Our installers are no longer on the property at this time. It is imperative that you check for this, and remove any nails or debris that might have been left behind.
