In the State of North Carolina, roofing contractors are not required to be licensed by the state unless the job cost exceeds $30,000.00. Residential roofing typically does not meet the criteria necessary for licensing.
Shingle manufacturers consider roofing companies “certified installers” when a predetermined volume of shingles and system components have been purchased from the company within a specific period. No training is required to be considered a “Certified Installer” of a shingle brand.
Shingle manufacturers provide warranty for their products according to specific guidelines. All components of the new roof must be used to ensure the most warranty coverage. For example; underlayment, shingle, starter shingle and ridge cap shingle must all be the same brand. This is not always standard practice by every roofing contractor and therefore can limit the amount of warranty coverage provided. You must register with the manufacturer for your warranty, however, you will need the information necessary to do so from your roofing contractor.
As a convenience, Kevin Creech Roofing, Inc. provides this registration service to our customers as part of the job and to ensure complete customer satisfaction with attention to all aspects of the new roof.
The most commonly used Multi Rib metal roofing has a thicker gauge than the 5 V Metal used in days past. Therefore, it does not resonate the sound of an “old tin roof.” However, the durability and longevity of metal roofing remains.
This is not a best practice for installing metal roofing.
The life span of Plumbing pipe flashings is approximately 7-15 years because they are made of plastic with a rubber ring that fits around the pipe. This material will deteriorate due to exposure to the elements over time. We choose to go the extra step of providing customers with a Permanent pipe flashing called a Perma Boot pipe flashing. Vents will not last if nail placement is not correct when installed. Pipes and vents may leak prematurely due to poor workmanship. We install Perma Boot Permanent Pipe Flashings.
