type of roofing do you do?
We install asphalt composite shingles for residential and
Do you work with insurance companies?
Yes. Everyday we are corresponding and working with local
insurance companies. We are highly trusted and often recommended
by insurance carriers.
Are you insured?
We are fully insured. Our crews carry workman’s compensation
and general liability. Ridgepoint Roofing also carries workman’s
compensation and general liability. If you’d like to speak to our
insurance agent, please feel free to call Modern Family Insurance
in Woodstock at 770-928-9122.
Can you help us with gutters, gutter covers and other trades?
We have crews that we work with everyday for roofing and
gutters. We also have developed a list of trusted contractors and
sub contractors. If we do not directly offer their service we can
offer the name of someone who does.
What about my insurance deductible?
Not paying your deductible is insurance fraud. Insurance
policies are written such that the first portion of the repairs
belongs to the customer. Our prices are reasonable and competitive
but we do not participate in insurance fraud.
Will your crews nail boards to my roof to stand on?
No. Not even on the steepest roof. Our crews use ropes,
cushions and roof jacks to protect themselves and your new roof.
There will be no holes in your new shingles from bottom to top.
Do you use roll off dumpsters?
No. We use hydraulic lift trailers on truck tires, as opposed
to heavy dumpsters that can break concrete driveways.
What shingles do you recommend?
We use all the top brands in our market including Owens Corning, GAF/ELK, CertainTeed and more. Depending on your home and taste we can recommend the product and look that is best for you. We prefer Certainteed Landmark, because of its weight, quality and customer service of the brand.
What is the best form of ventilation?
It depends on your home’s design. We can help you design a
system that most effectively ventilates your attic space.
Ventilation is one of the most important aspects of a good roof
system. We will take the time to help you understand your options
and make sure you meet your new shingle’s warranty specifications.
How will I know if I need a new roof?
The obvious reason is leaks. However, if you’ve also
experienced a big storm, you may have wind or hail damage. You may
see the rock coming off the shingles, missing shingles, etc. If
you have any doubts about the soundness of your roof we will give
you an honest option on the remaining life.
What will the estimator look for when inspecting my roof?
Our estimators are experienced at gauging shingle wear. They
will look for weather related damages (hail, wind) problems or
potential problems, integrity and life of shingles and
installation errors. The estimator will give you a professional
opinion and options. We do not tell everyone that they have damage
or that they need a new roof.
How long does a roof last?
Most shingles last between 15-20 years. The better shingle, the
longer it lasts. Roofs also last longer with sufficient
ventilation and proper installation.
Can a roof lower my energy bills?
Yes. Proper ventilation lowers temperature which will help
protect your home from over heating.
