Did you know that your homeowner’s insurance will cover your Atlanta roofing job if you have received hail damage sometime over the past 12 months? This means that Atlanta roofers can give you a brand new roof, at absolutely no cost to you. Now is a great time to update your home’s look with the new 3-D architectural shingles that everyone is raving about, considering you are not liable for the unfair wear and tear the weather has unforgivingly pelted down on your expensive investment.

If you live in the Metro Atlanta area, you’ve undoubtedly seen countless Atlanta roofing trucks around your neighborhood, since nearly every roof has needed replacing over the past two years. Yet, the interesting thing about some of these trucks, is that they hold out-of-state license plates. Often, homeowners don’t even think twice about checking the plates because they saw that the “Atlanta roofers” had a local address and refer to themselves as a “local Atlanta roofing company.” However, along with hail storms come opportunists. Many of these fly-by-night operators come right up from Florida, South Carolina and other southern states, pay the licensing fee to get a local corporation name and set up shop for a few months only to leave homeowners warranty-less and dissatisfied.

It’s important that you check with the Georgia Secretary of State to see that your Atlanta roofing contractors are legit. Naturally, you want a company that uses stable crews of dedicated Atlanta roofers, that is turning over management and workers all the time. You want Atlanta roofing professionals who are not only willing to give you a free estimate, but will also come out when your insurance claims adjustor arrives, so they can make the case for roof replacement and increase the likelihood that your new roof will be fully paid for.

Once you find Atlanta roofers that are trustworthy and customer-oriented, you can begin to think about what type of new roof you’d like. Most Atlanta homeowners prefer the new 3-D architectural shingles from Atlanta roofing leaders GAF, Certainteed or Owens-Corning, which can give your home an attractive look that incorporates several different shades and colors. These top-of-the-line shingles come with a 30-year guarantee, which is three times’ that of traditional asphalt shingles!

Also, many homeowners ask their Atlanta roofers about ridge vents. This architectural features is situated at the peak of the house, where plywood is cut to leave a 3-4" space, where a plastic vent is subtly inserted. While not visible on the street, the US Department of Energy says this natural ventilation lets hot air escape and keeps your air conditioning in, which saves 30% on energy costs. According to the Center for Disease Control, ridge vents "help lower the temperature in the roof structure and attic… help prolong the life of the roofing materials, particularly asphalt shingles and plywood sheathing… and assist in air circulation to avoid problems with excessive moisture."
