Let’s talk about shingle roofs. Yes, there are wood shingles and there are asphalt shingles. Wood shingles are a good roof system because they are a durable material that adds curb appeal. They are good for those who want a natural-looking roof that is biodegradable and storm-resistant. Asphalt shingles are manufactured from oil-based materials. They are colorful, durable and many have an architectural grade styling that is appealing. There is a big difference. Wood shingles require a regular maintenance program that if neglected reduces the life of the roof dramatically. Asphalt shingles are much simpler to maintain.
There isn’t really “good” and “bad” roofing materials. The “best” roof is the one that works for you. That’s the one we will build.
Don’t put off a roof replacement you need. Most roofs are designed to last for 20-30 years but rain, wind, and abuse can shorten that time. The damage from a leaky roof can cause mold, collapsing drywall and other misery. Here is how we fix it for you.
STEP 1: Project Interview
Clearly understanding the issues and your concerns helps the estimator review the issues he will bid. He may order a satellite measurement of your roof. He will visually inspect the roof at the time of the appointment with you.
STEP 2: Estimate
We complete the interview and inspection. And, get the correct measurements. Then the estimator will use professional software to generate a detailed estimate for your review. We will discuss together any questions you have about it.
STEP 3: Job Approval
You agree that working with Raven Roofing is your best option. You sign the estimate and make your deposit payment. Raven Roofing then orders all materials needed to do your job right. Many times, your new materials will be loaded on to your roof by the supplier.
STEP 4: Work Commenced
On a date agreed with you, our crews show up make needed repairs. We clean up your site. All work is completed in 5 to 10 days.
STEP 5: PROJECT COMPLETED
The crew has done their job. You review the job with the Lead crew member or estimator. Everyone is happy! You make the final payment to Raven Roofing and live safely under a dry roof.

Frequently asked questions
You will have so many questions as you embark on this process to repair and replace your roof with new shingles. Some of the critical questions every home or business owners should ask are below. You will have more questions. We have the answers. Read through these and then call us with the rest.
What is your License Number?
An important question to ask. If the roofer has a license number, you’re working with a roofer who complies with our building codes and licensing laws. Raven Roofing is licensed contractor. It also means that you will have potential more legal recourse in the event that something goes wrong with the work, too. Raven Roofing is compliant with the contracting laws in Utah.
Do you have Workman's Comp Insurance?
Do you use roofing subcontractors?
The simple answer is usually “no”. Although there are occasions when we may call in a more qualified worker who is an independent subcontractor. We ensure that our subcontractors might not have Contractor’s licenses and workman’s comp insurance.
What is the difference between a tear off and a 2nd layer layover?
With a second layer of on your home the newly installed shingles wear out prematurely. You also cannot address the potential trouble areas of your current roofing system if you just “layover” a new set of shingles. A new set of shingles overlayed may cover up poorly installed or failing wall flashing, step flashing, chimney flashing and rotten wood decking also known as sheeting. It may also cover up the fact that you are missing ice and water shield. For a better quality and longer lasting roof the old roof should always be removed before a new one is installed. On lower sloped shingle roofs, the top layer will conform to the bottom layer and then creates cupping. These cups start to hold water and ice on the roof which will leak into the home over time. Also, remember you cannot “layover” asphalt on a wood shingle roof or vice a versa.
