El Paso, TX, Roofing Carpentry and Building Services
It’s not always about what’s on top of your roof that counts; the structure supporting your home’s shingles is just as important to ensure a long-lasting investment. Some roofing contractors focus solely on the external covering and repair of your home’s roof, because their expertise is in laying and replacing shingles. But a team of trained carpenters will understand the actual structural design and engineering of the entire building to make sure the roof is durable for many years to come. Whether it’s a brand-new construction project or you’re planning a roof replacement, call American Roofing LLC in El Paso to inspect what’s under the shingles and help you frame a solid roof the right way.
The science behind a roof
A good roof actually starts with your home’s ceiling, because the insulation has a tremendous impact on the type of structure and ventilation that should go overhead. Our team can evaluate the insulation and ventilation, as well as the masonry and roof load, and identify any water-damaged or sagging rafters.
When you work with American Roofing LLC, you’ll get the kind of attention only possible from true carpenters. Our team knows the science behind constructing a roof that will bear weight and regulate heat. When framing a new roof, it’s important for a trained expert to consider how much heat will get into the attic, which is impacted by how much or how little insulation is used in the ceiling. The next step is to plan for how heat will safely escape from the attic using enough ventilation based on the total size of the roof. If there is too much heat entering the attic under the eaves and it’s unable to vent outside, over enough time, even shingles designed to last decades will essentially bake right off the roof several years too quickly. High heat can also speed the growth of mold and rot in the attic, ruining the wood structure.
If it’s time to replace your roof after a decade or more, then it’s probably also time to inspect the structure and condition of your home’s attic.
