Heritage Builders came out to my rental house I have in Middletown and repaired a leak that other roofing companies said couldn’t be fixed. They were able to save me thousands and I have saved their number in my phone.
We just used them to put a new roof on our house, and couldn’t be happier!

Asphalt shingles can be installed properly during cold weather (late fall and winter) only if additional, costly measures are taken. Most asphalt shingle manufactures require that a specialized adhesive is manually applied the each shingle if temperatures are below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Manufacturers of asphalt shingles recommend a pitch of 4/12 or more, but the absolute minimum pitch is 2/12. Pitch is measured in inches of vertical rise of the roof over one foot (12 inches) of horizontal run. So a 4/12 pitch roof rises 4 inchesfor every 12 inches of horizontal run.
Architectural asphalt — These products last about 30 years on average. Wood shingles and shakes — Wood roofing has a target lifetime of 30 years, but it can last much longer under moderate weather conditions.

|Asphalt Shingle||10-30 years (20 is the norm)|
|Built-Up (BUR)||25-30 years|
This may surprise you — metal roofing is often quieter than an asphalt shingle roof. When installed with solid sheathing, a metal roof on your home will actually silence noise from rain, hail and bad weather better than other roofing materials.
The concern about metal roofs attracting lightning strikes is most likely associated with the fact that metal can be an electrical conductor. Even so, metal roofs do not attract lightning and are not struck any more frequently than other roofing materials.
If you have insurance and insurance is paying it is always your deductible, plus upgrades if any.
While a lot of people think that a leaking roof needs to be replaced, this may not be the case unless the roof is old. Missing, cracked, broken, and curling shingles can be repaired and replaced to stop a leak, while older roofs or roofs with multiple leaks or widespread issues should be replaced.
