Probably the most popular type of residential roofing in Wilmington, West Chester and their surrounding areas, shingle roofs are comprised of asphalt and fiberglass material. Fiberglass-reinforced asphalt shingles are well-known for their fire resistance, and generally carry with them a Class A fire resistance rating, which is as good as it gets in the world of roofing. Depending on your architectural and aesthetic preferences, we will help you handpick a type of shingle that’s right for your home.
Flat Rubber Roofs
It’s not uncommon for flat & rubber roofs to need recoating or even replacement every ten years or so. In fact, most residential flat roofs have a 10-year lifespan. Does your rubber roof need repaired? Look for seam splitting or bubbling, which are sure signs that your flat roof or rubber roof could soon begin to give you internal house problems. If you’ve already experienced leaks, then you can’t afford not to act now.
Known for their light weight, durability and energy efficiency, metal roofs are heralded for their longevity, often lasting for 50+ years from the date of installation. Still, despite their pedigree, metal roofs can still be victimized by the harsh elements. For metal roof installation, maintenance and repair, there’s no one better than Lane Roofing.
Tile & Slate Roofs
Roofing tiles are a great way to get an upscale look that will last a long time and endure the elements with ease. When installed with stainless steel or copper fasteners and flashings, these roofs can last a lifetime before they need major renovation. A properly maintained slate or tile roof can also can increase the resale value of a home or building substantially, and better recoup its higher relative cost. Ask the Wilmington roofing professionals at Lane Roofing if a tile or slate roof is right for your home!

Potential Roofing Problems
Causes a brown-to-black discoloration that results in a streaked, dirty- looking rooftop. It is caused by the growth of airborne algae, which deposits itself on your roof. The good news is that algae growth does not affect the service life of your roofing shingles. This is strictly a cosmetic problem, despite what some roofers may try to tell you.
Can have many causes, including (1) improperly applied roof felt, (2) wrinkled roofing underlayment, (3) roof deck movement, (4) improperly installed roof sheathing, (5) poor roof ventilation (6) new shingles applied over rough, old roof shingles.
Can stem from one or more problems, including (1) improper installation on a new roof, (2) drying and cracking on an old roof, (3) improper material selection, or (4) settling of the structure.
Caused by absorption of moisture by the mat at the core of the roof shingle. This is a common problem with organic-based roofing shingles, with the best solution being replacement with a fiberglass shingle.
Caused by advanced age or a shingle manufacturing defect. The best solution is to replace the shingles as soon as possible. If your roof is not more than a few years old, talk to us about possibly approaching your shingle’s manufacturer to help cover the cost of roof repair.
Can result from a variety of problems, including (1) high nails, (2) a lack of back coating, (3) under-saturation of the asphalt felt in organic shingles, (4) a lack of roof ventilation and (5) an improper number of fasteners (6) shingles that are nearing the end of their service life.
Missing Roof Shingles
Typically result from either improper fastening or exposure to high winds. To prevent further damage, this issue should be addressed as soon as possible. If you lose a few shingles every year, you may need a full roof replacement.
Caused by a premature shingle failure or the end of your roof’s life expectancy. The granules are applied to the shingle surface for aesthetics, and perhaps more importantly to protect the shingle structure from ultraviolet radiation.
Lane Roofing will perform a free inspection to see if you have any damage to your roof.
Most of the time roof damage cannot be seen from the ground but if strong storms have passed through your area then there may be damage to your roof. It is worth the effort to contact a professional to examine your roof closely to determine if there is damage. Hailstorms can take years off the life of your roof especially if it’s a composite roof due to the loss of the ceramic granules from the surface of the shingles eventually causing leaks. With other roof types, such as metal, slate or tile, damage may only be cosmetic, but if not repaired, the damage can depreciate your home’s resale value. You may have a limited time in which to file an insurance claim. Why risk this? Your insurance company will not contact you to ask if you have damage or if you would like a free inspection.
