Roofing Contractor Howard County, Anne Arundel County, MD & Surrounding Areas
Residential roofs in Maryland usually last from 15 to 30 years, depending on the quality of materials installed, the integrity of the installation, if the chimney is properly flashed, or whether your roof has suffered storm damage. Considering Builder-Grade roofs for homes built in 1995-2005, you will be fortunate to get 20 years of service from your roof.
The best way to avoid costly repairs or complete roof replacement is to have it inspected periodically. If you experience the warning signs of a major roof problem, it is important to choose a reputable company that will complete the repairs necessary and stand by their workmanship and materials after the project is complete. Since 1999, the Clarksville Construction Services Team has reliably fixed and replaced roofs for homeowners in Howard County, Catonsville, Glen Burnie, Laurel and Severna Park.
Benefits of Roof Repair
You can depend on the CCS service team to do more than just a patch-and-go job. We examine all parts that make roofing protective: the flashing that surrounds edges and reinforces walls and valleys; the ventilation that keeps temperatures even and the repair, caulking and replacement of all gutter types. Our Project Managers are certified as “Master Shingle Applicator” by Roofing and Exteriors product industry leader CertainTeed.
We also repair and replace siding, windows and doors in addition to all the work on the inside: kitchens, bathrooms, basements, additions and more!
Often, roof repair will solve your problem. But if more than a quarter of it has sustained water damage, we may recommend a full roof replacement. As a reputable company that values lifetime customers, Clarksville Construction Services will provide a written estimate, explain the extent of the damage and leave the final decision up to you. Some of the Roofing companies out there will try to railroad you with a dash of fear onto a fast-track to replace a rooftop that just needs a little TLC. Not us! Need a second opinion? You will get integrity in the CCS Team estimate and honesty in our customer satisfaction guarantee. We build trust first!
If You Have To Replace: Roof Options
The standard three-tab shingle is used on 85 percent of new residential construction in the Mid-Atlantic. Fiberglass-reinforced shingles provide 4-5 layers of coverage and come in many shapes, colors and patterns.
Versatile, durable and long-lasting, asphalt roofs are leak-resistant when properly installed, and are rated for 25-30 year lifetime expectancy. Asphalt shingle roofs are resistant to fire (when installed with fiberglass matting) and wind, which is great for staying put when heavy storms and winds roll across the Baltimore and Washington area.
Cedar Shakes and Shingles
Traditional wood shingles of red cedar are a tough building product that looks natural and is resistant to decay, mold and insect damage. Frequently seen in historic districts/neighborhoods, cedar shingles are cut and tapered and lay flat in rows. Shake shingles have a slightly irregular rustic look. In the upper end of roof budget, cedar shakes are a high-maintenance, premium product for sure.
Strong and durable, slate is an expensive, super-premium choice for homeowners with extra budget to spend and a sturdy foundation to support the heaviest roofing material. Slate gives a gorgeous appearance, but does require routine maintenance.
CCS can install a CertainTeed Symphony or Atlas StormMaster synthetic slate roof option that looks identical to stone, but costs 50% less. Compared to real slate, these roofs are light-weight, durable, and weather resistant, making for a premium, quality roofing material.
Color to Match Your Style
CertainTeed’s Landmark asphalt shingle products offer the widest array of color options in their class, allowing you to create or re-create the ideal look for your home. We also recommend Atlas Roofing’s StormMaster line of shingles that can emulate slate or shake roofs with the added protection of 3M Scotchgard Protector.
