While leaks can seem obvious on the inside, often it is unclear exactly where the leak is starting on your actual roof. A professional roof inspection is generally your best, and safest, bet for finding and fixing the leak.
Your roof is generally a silent hero. It simply does its job of protecting your home from the elements without requiring constant maintenance. However, everything eventually fails and because our roofs tend to be out of mind, all too often we notice the problems when they are too late.
That's why it's a good idea to catch these small issues early. By having a qualified team of experienced professionals examine your roof you can catch potentially major problems while they are still easy (and inexpensive) to fix. Luckily, Richmond Exteriors has just such a team.
If you have bigger needs like roof replacement or a new roof installation we can help you with that too. Give us a call at 1-844-464-6977 or contact us online to schedule your free estimate for any of our roof services in Greater Indianapolis.
It's easy to think of your roof as a singular object made out of shingles. However, a roof is actually a complete system of multiple interdependent elements. An inspector that only pays attention to the shingles themselves may easily fail to notice other issues that are developing in related systems. Here at Richmond Exteriors you can always count on us to inspect everything.
While rooves are generally not replaced until they begin to fail or noticeably show their age, there are some non-functional reasons to consider a roof replacement. Most notably a roof replacement can play a major part in freshening up your home's appearance. Your roof is after all one of the largest visible exterior parts of your home. As experienced, professional Indiana roofing contractors, we can help you decide if roof replacement or installation makes sense for your needs and budget.
Whether you are considering a roof replacement for aesthetic reasons or simply to replace an old roof or broken tiles there are some exciting developments in the industry. Most notably there are a variety of exciting new roofing materials available – like composite shingles that look like old-fashioned roofing slates but are made from recycled rubber. Modern asphalt-fiberglass shingles have never looked better – especially the architectural grades that show off extra depth and texture.

Headquartered in Valley Forge, PA, CertainTeed is a leading North American manufacturer of building materials and specializes in the production of high quality roofing and other materials including vinyl siding, trim, fence, railing, decking, insulation, gypsum, and ceiling products.
CertainTeed manufactures a variety of high quality, durable asphalt roofing systems. Asphalt roofing shingles are the most commonly used covering on residential properties in the market. Asphalt’s primary purpose in roofing shingles is to serve as a waterproofing agent. Asphalt also holds the granules in place and adds to the overall strength of the roofing shingle. The best asphalt will stay flexible and will not dry out or become hard or brittle for the expected life of the roofing shingle.
Strip asphalt roofing shingles are single-layered asphalt roofing shingles typically designed to look like slate. Strip roofing shingles are usually the lightest weight asphalt roofing shingles available in the market. Built on a tough fiberglass base, each shingle provides resistance to blow-off and tearing.
Dimensional asphalt roofing shingles are manufactured as multi-layered products and provide a thicker and richer appearance on the roof (a multi-dimensional look). Dimensional roofing shingles typically are heavier weight than strip roofing shingles and usually have improved warranty protections, which can range from 30-years to Lifetime.
Premium asphalt roofing shingles are usually described as laminated shingles that have a differentiated appearance or functionality from traditional dimensional asphalt roofing shingles. These products may have designs that mimic “old-world” roofing shingles, like natural slate or natural shake roofing shingles. CertainTeed’s Grand Manor™, Presidential Shake™ and Centennial Slate™ shingles are prime examples of premium roofing shingles that provide an enhanced aesthetic appeal.
Owens Corning offers a wide variety of shingle options, all of which meet the highest standards of quality, durability, and appearance.

Similarly, specialty shingles include Devonshire Shingles, Berkshire Collection Shingles, Duration Premium Cool Shingles, and TruDefinition Duration Storm Impact Resistant Shingles.
