Tips For A New Roof – Home Improvement

If it’s time for a new roof on your house, better leave it to the professionals at Blass Residential Services. We have the specialized tools to do the job, and the experienced installers who can operate safely on a high, sloping surface. But here’s some terminology that will make you more informed about the process:
-A “square” is 100 square feet.
-Composition shingles (asphalt or fiberglass) come in bundles that cover 1/3 square.
-Roofing comes in rolls 3 feet wide and 36 feet long, for a coverage of about 1 square.
-When installing roofing over bare wood, roofing felt or tar paper is laid down first.
-A roll of 15-pound felt covers about 4 squares; a roll of thicker 30-pound felt covers 2 squares.
-When ordering any of these materials, add 15 percent for waste.
-Shingles come in all styles and colors so don’t be afraid to try something new and give your home a makeover.
