Shinn Roofing was conceived with the notion of being a different kind of roofing company. There are a lot of different ideas about roofing, and most homeowners do not know enough to make educated decisions when picking a roofer. Our goal at Shinn Roofing is to help homeowners understand how the process works and educate them on how the original roof was put on compared to what we do. Home builders use cheap materials on new roofs, whereas we will reroof using the finest materials available. .
Most roofers will do the same as the builders, as there’s more profit this way. New roofs get cheap felt paper, cheap shingles you can get at home improvement stores, cheap metal in valleys, three nails per shingle, and that’s really it. You will quickly see plenty of mold growth on these types of roofs as well. With Shinn Roofing, we do synthetic underlayment instead of felt (which holds water). We use ice and water shields in your valleys instead of valley metal (which expands and contracts over time). We also make sure to use six nails per shingle, which is hurricane spec. Most importantly, we use Atlas Shingles. Atlas is a superior shingle company whose shingles are all made in the USA and Scotchgaurded by 3M. Atlas shingles weigh 250lbs per square which is significantly heavier than what most roofers use. This is a 50 year shingle, and will retain its appearance as it is Algae resistant and will not develop black streaks due to 3M Scotchguarding. No other shingle manufacturers have Scotchguard built in.
