Buckeighty Roofing has spent 18 years in residential roofing, asphalt shingle roofing, metal roofing and even commercial metal roofing in and around Buford Georgia, Lilburn and Braselton. Buckeighty Roofing has been around for Georgia residents in the north east suburbs of Atlanta with its excellent warranty. When replacing asphalt shingle roofs with quality roofing materials, the fine print usually pro-rates the value of the material over say 25 years. So if you bought 15 square of asphalt shingles 24 years ago and the manufacturer can be convinced to pro-rate your material replacement, you have to consider that 25 years ago shingles cost six to seven dollars a bundle, and you will be, if you can even get them to listen, to pro-rate off that original cost you paid for material. so lets say they give you five percent of 50 bundles, that adds up to fifteen bucks.
So my point here is that you should use a high quality asphalt shingle from the start, because when you look at the 25 year manufacturers material guarantee, once you get past five or so years, and you look at the fine print, there isn’t much punch to the warranty. That is not to say, when dealing with a reputable shingle manufacturer, that the longer guarantees are not worth it. Certainteed for example has a good color selection and they have a premium landmark 300 lb shingle that they call a lifetime shingle, and the warranty is good. For example, we have seen shingles blister under the hot sun. Don’t get me wrong, never with the Certainteed brand, but we have encountered these sorts of manufacturing defects.
With another manufacturer, which I refuse to name here, we have seen them come back a year later and pay to have the entire roof replaced. Now that is a warranty. It is regrettable that a manufacturing defect would inconvenience the homeowner with needing to replace the roof a year later on their home. But with the reputable asphalt shingle manufacturers, you can expect that kind of support if they did make a mistake in the manufacturing process. Roofing also stands behind their work. We offer a seven year warranty on our workmanship. Some roofers play the same game with ten and twenty year promises, but they are just counting on going out of business and coming back under a new name later.
Gypsy roofers also are common in the roofing industry, and their workmanship is really spotty. They only want to make sure they can get their old pickup truck out of the neighborhood before the roof leaks. But not at Buckeighty Roofing. In fact for residents of Lilburn, Braselton and Buford Georgia, if you sign your roofing contract with Buckeighty Roofing before August 31, 2011 and your electric bill shows your address to be in Braselton, Buford Georgia or Liilburn on the property we are replacing the roof, we offer a free ten month follow up inspection to the roof.
Homeowners might not see the importance of inspecting a roof less than a year after replacing it. But this great idea serves to take advantage on the timing of manufacturers warranties on defects when it really pays to catch them. Most defects are readily observable by trained roofing professionals well before the leaks occur. If you read the find print on asphalt shingle roofing guarantees, even on a thirty or 40 year shingle, you will find that after a couple of years, they won’t pay much. Buckeighty Roofing has been replacing roofs for 18 years around Grayson and Buford Georgia.
So don’t hire somebody that won’t be around to help if there is a problem with your asphalt shingle roofing replacement, either because they over promised or they are just a here today and gone tomorrow bunch of storm chasers. For Buford Ga Roofing use Buckeighty Roofing company.
