VIRTUALLY MAINTENANCE FREE

The top and bottom sashes of our double-hung vinyl windows tilt in for easy cleaning. A soap-and-water wash is all that’s required to keep these windows looking great for years.

EASY OPERATION

The industry’s original constant-force stainless steel balance system outperforms both spiral and block-and-tackle systems. It won’t break or corrode and never needs adjusting.

INDUSTRY-LEADING THERMAL EFFICIENCY

Continuous improvements have kept our vinyl windows on the leading edge of technology. All of our vinyl windows have:

  • honeycomb construction
  • double-pane glass
  • exclusive Thermaflect® glass, which selects which wavelengths of light and heat should enter your home.

UNSURPASSED STYLE

Our vinyl windows aren’t just efficient — they’re beautiful. A carpentered look is achieved with beveled exterior edges and sleek interior lines. Other beautiful features include an appealing choice of colors, color-matched hardware and flat or sculptured grids between the glass that add the classic look of true divided lites.

EXCELLENT WARRANTY

Our vinyl windows are backed by the strongest warranty in the industry. We offer a lifetime limited warranty that protects frames, sashes, hardware and glass against manufacturing defects for as long as you own your home. And our exclusive SureStart™ protection covers 100% of the cost of materials and labor to repair or replace a window in the first five years following installation.

Siding and Trim

Siding and trim beautifies your home, but it also protect it from Virginia weather. The Roofing Company and The Remodeling Company features CertainTeed Siding. With years of experience installing siding and trim, we can brighten your home and make you the envy of your neighbors.

Using Fiber Cement Siding

Looking for siding that captures the look and feel of wood in a natural but more durable material? Consider James Hardie® FiberCement siding. With a number of profiles and textures to choose from, and a less porous surface that holds paint well, you’ll spend more time admiring your home and less time worrying about maintaining it.

Custom Trim

Whether your home is brick, stucco, clapboard, vinyl or stone, the overhang and other trim areas still require maintenance. Since the EPA has mandated that lead be removed from paint products, keeping the house looking it’s best and protecting the trim from damage can be an expensive undertaking requiring frequent painting. The encasement of your woodwork with vinyl coated aluminum trim coil is the solution to prevent rot, water damage and the need for maintenance. Benefits of Vinyl Siding

Siding Questions Answered

Do I ever have to paint my siding?

No! The most you ever have to do is give your home a washing with soap and water once or twice a year.

Does it come with matching trim?

CertainTeed offers the widest variety of trim pieces in the industry. Everything from function utility trims to substantial wide trims resembling dimensional lumber, fluted cornerposts and decorative crown molding for window headers. Most items are available in all CertainTeed colors.

CertainTeed also offers Restoration Millwork PVC Cellular trim that coordinates with all our vinyl and polymer siding products.

How much does it cost to side a home?

Because we offer sidings at a number of price points to fit any need and any budget, and because every home and siding job is unique, there is no way to answer this question. The best thing to do is invite a siding contractor to your home so he can measure it accurately and discuss other needs you may have.

What are the advantages of Longer Length Siding?

The primary benefit of longer length siding panels is that it reduces the number of seams on the wall. Siding seams can be an aesthetic objection to vinyl siding.

What is Polymer Siding?

The typical application for this kind of siding is Shake and Shingle cladding with a cedar pattern which can be used as a whole house application or in accent areas.

Update Your Home with Energy Efficient Skylights

For homeowners who struggle with high electricity bills, a simple solution is to bring more natural light into your home. More natural light means less time that your electric lights need to function. And an easy way to bring in more natural light is to install skylights into your home. 

The Roofing Company is fully certified in the installation of top quality Velux Skylights. Velux Skylights are top of the line, energy efficient, and weatherproof. Their ability to stop the penetration of harmful UV and IR rays, but still allow for the natural light to brighten your home is unparalleled by any other skylight manufacturer. And the durability and weather seal technology of a Velux skylight will give you peace of mind knowing that your home is sealed tight from any inclement weather.

Skylights can be installed into any room in your home and will immediately boost your home’s resale value. At The Roofing Company, we often install skylights in kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, and living rooms. These are areas that can benefit both from the added natural light and the increased ventilation that skylights can provide. And since skylights are installed directly into the roof, they do not take up any wall space, which frees up your walls for extra cabinets, artwork, and other features that adding a new window would not allow.

The benefits of installing Velux skylights into your home are innumerous, and no local contractor will perform a more prompt, expert installation than The Roofing Company.

The Roofing Company services the entire Hampton Roads and Virginia Peninsula region and have extensive experience in improving homes since 1998. Our skylight installations are second to none in the local industry. Visit our Contact Us page or give us a call for more info.

Slate Roofing

Slate Roofing

THE LEAST EXPENSIVE AND MOST DEPENDABLE ROOF YOU WILL EVER OWN

Slate has to be the most misunderstood roofing product on the market. I interview several dozen homeowners yearly who have slate roofs, and very few even know where slate comes from. I don’t intend to give you a long, boring history of stone roofing. I will, however, attempt to answer a few frequently asked questions about slate roofing, as well as list some do’s and don’ts concerning slate repairs and selecting a slate roofer in Norfolk.

Where did my slate come from?

The most common installed by slate roofers in Norfolk and Newport News is the Blue/Black Buckingham slate variety from Buckingham County, Virginia. Buckingham County is only about 4 hour’s north-west of Hampton Roads. There are also several green and buff colored slate roofs in the Hilton Village section of Newport News that were quarried and shipped from the slate valley area in Vermont. 

How much does a slate roof cost?

The cost of installing a new slate roof can be relatively expensive compared to other forms of roofing materials, sometimes several times more. But while the up front cost of installation is high, the cost per year over its lifespan is the lowest of all of its competitors. It is impossible to list a general cost of a newly installed slate roof as there are too many variables. The roof size and pitch, the size of the slate, which type of slate will be used and the roof details all factor in on the figuring of the cost of a slate roof.

How long does a slate roof last?

Depending on the type of slate, a slate roof can last hundreds of years. Buckingham Slate warranties their product for 150 years. Having the lowest water absorption rate of any American slate, it is safe to say it should outlive the home it was installed on. 

Do slate roofs require maintenance?

Slate roofs require no more maintenance than any other style of roof. Just like all roofs, they should be inspected by professional slate roofers every few years or so. Homeowners should conduct their own inspections yearly. Start in the attic and look for water stains. The exterior can be inspected by use of a simple pair of binoculars right from the ground. Look for slates that are missing, broken, sliding out or have holes in them. If an area of your roof is obstructed, be creative, just be safe! 

How do I know if my slate roof needs to be replaced?

Typically, slate roofs will last well over 100 years. Buckingham slate roofs have been known to last over 150 years. It is rare the slate itself fails. If a slate roof leaks it is usually a failure in the details of the roof. Pipe collars, valley metal, and wall flashings are common leak sources. Over 95% of the slate roofs I have looked at over the years were easily repaired. Only one roof I have inspected required replacement due to fastener failure. The few that require replacement was due to prolonged leaking that destroyed the substrate. Only trust the opinion of a certified slate roof repair company and trained slate roofers. The Roofing Company and The Remodeling Company houses an on-site facility, Hampton Roads Roofing and Slate Roofing Training Center, where new slate roofers learn and the expert slate roofers train and educate. Slate roofing services take a special skill set and one that we can ensure you we have.

Impact Resistant Shingles can save you on homeowners insurance!

In many states, the use of impact-resistant roofing products makes you eligible for significant insurance premium discounts.

Natural slate roofing is recommended for the ultimate impact resistance. Slate easily passed UL 2218 Class 4, the toughest impact test (slate shingles show no evidence of cracks or ruptures on front or back). At the request of the National Slate Association, more lab testing was conducted to confirm the ability of roofing slate to withstand hail damage. See the results for yourself! read more…

Now to my final question…

How do you select the right Norfolk area contractors?

Slate roofing practices haven’t changed in the last 100 years yet so many roofs are repaired incorrectly. I have personally seen anything from nails though the face of the slate, plastic product used instead of real slate, tar slapped on anything that looks like a leak, and the most common incorrect repair of them all, the metal strap hanger. When trying to find experts in roofing in Virginia to properly diagnose and repair your slate roof is simple, educate yourself! First, ask your neighbors for references. See who they have used in the past. Often you will hear who NOT to use which is just as important as whom you should call. Your next step is to read. Many slate roof owners have enjoyed Joseph Jenkins’s book “The Slate Roof Bible”.. This is a very informative book on the history of slate roofing in the United States. It also has a very extensive section on slate roofing repairs and the proper ways slate roofers conduct those repairs. You should also only hire a contractor who has been certified by the various slate roofing governing bodies such as The National Slate Association and the Slate Roofing Contractors Association. Their websites are indispensable when it comes to finding the right contractor and properly trained slate roofers to repair your roof.

Don’t let a poor decision in contractor selection lead to further damage and additional costs that may have been avoided by doing a little research.
