Protect Your Home with a Lifetime Roofing System from NexGen

Whoever said “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” wasn’t talking about a roof.  Waiting until your roof springs a leak can have devastating consequences: Ruined drywall, rotten plywood, and mildewed interior partitions—the repair costs can quickly spiral out of control.

Equally important as a timely roof replacement is which roofing contractor you choose for the install. The roofing industry is rife with amateurs who lack insurance, technical knowledge, and familiarity with local building codes. A shoddy roofing job places your whole house at risk. And if they’re uninsured, you’re the one who’s stuck with the repair bill.

At NexGen our certified installers will ensure that your roof is installed the correct way. There won’t be any leaks or problems down the road. As part of our commitment to you, all roofing systems come with a LIFETIME TRANSFERABLE WARRANTY!

Professional Roofing Contractor | CertainTeed® SELECT ShingleMaster

certainteed certified roofer

As a certified CertainTeed® SELECT ShingleMaster, we use CertainTeed® approved products to ensure a quality roof. Renowned for their exceptional quality and durability, CertainTeed® roofing products are well deserving of their outstanding reputation.

CertainTeed’s® Landmark® architectural-style shingles are unrivaled in their appearance, durability, and affordability. With a dimensional design, Landmark® shingles replicate the look of cedar shake roofing at a much lower price.

Guaranteed to withstand 110-mph winds, Landmark® shingles are capable of withstanding almost anything Mother Nature can throw at them.

CertainTeed’s® DiamondDeck® synthetic underlayment is the gold standard in the roofing industry. Some contractors still use 15-pound felt tarpaper, which is easy to tear and puts your whole roof—and home—at risk. While good enough to pass code, and can save you a little money, the tradeoff just isn’t worth it.

We Install All Types of Roofs

At NexGen, we’re knowledgeable and experienced installing all types of roofing systems. In addition to traditional asphalt shingled roofs, we’re also skilled at installing metal, wood, and low-sloped roofing systems.

Asphalt Roofs

Asphalt Roof

Asphalt roofs are an American invention (circa 1901). By far the most common type of roofing system in North America, asphalt roofs offer a better value for most homeowners than their more expensive alternatives (metal or wood).

Unless you’re looking for the improved aesthetics of a wood-shingled roof, or the increased energy efficiency of a metal roof, you’ll most likely want an asphalt roof. While less durable than metal or wood roofs, asphalt roofs are relatively cheap, attractive, and can still provide quality protection (with the right materials and the right installers).

As CertainTeed® SELECT ShingleMaster, we guarantee a top quality CertainTeed® asphalt roofing system installed by certified professionals. All of our asphalt roofing jobs include a CertainTeed® SureStart Plus® 4-star warranty.

Metal Roofs

Metal Roof

Metal roofs are perfect for homeowners who can afford a long-term investment into their homes. While initially more expensive than traditional asphalt roofing systems, metal roofs are extremely resilient and will easily last 3 times longer than asphalt shingles.

The initial benefits are also much better. Extremely energy efficient, you’ll notice a significant drop in your utility bills. With their reflective surface, they’ll reflect the sun’s heat in the summer, and with their slick surface, they’ll repel snow and ice during the winter.

Metal roofs are very safe too. Metal, unlike asphalt or wood shingles, will never catch fire. And they’re extremely resilient. While hail is a major cause of roof damage with asphalt shingles, a metal roof can take the impact with no significant damage.

Wood Roofs

Wood Roof

Wood roofs come in many different styles: shingle and shake, White Cyprus and Red Cedar. For the aesthetician, there are simply no better options. When you opt for a wood roofing system, you’re guaranteed to the have best house on the block—instantly.

While some modern wood shingles and shakes are pressure treated with fire retardant chemicals, they’re still more vulnerable to fire than other roofing systems. They’re also vulnerable to fungus and insect damage, which adds to their maintenance costs.

But for a homeowner who can afford an expensive install and high maintenance costs, wood roofs are unrivalled in their attractiveness and durability. Wood roofs, with proper maintenance, can last a lifetime. They’re also great against impact damage—like hail—and they can easily withstand winds of over 200+ mph.

Low-Sloped Roofs

Flat Roof

Roofs with low slopes require special types of roofing systems. Asphalt shingle roofs work when there’s a significant slope (pitch), which allows the water to flow down the shingles. But with a flat roof, you need a completely different style.

When installing a low-slope roofing system, we’ll roll out a membrane of Polyglass® modified bitumen, bond the seams, and create an airtight, waterproof seal. This style of roof will ensure that—even without a significant pitch—you’ll still have a leak-free roof.

We Install Skylights too!

Skylights let the sun’s rays fill your home with natural sunlight. The best time to install a skylight is during a roof replacement. Skylights are also much cheaper to install than you might imagine and can really increase your home’s aesthetic appeal—both inside and out!

Frequently Asked Questions

CertainTeed SureStart Warranty

Q: What is the Lifetime Transferable Warranty?
A: As a certified, CertainTeed® SELECT ShingleMaster, we provide all of our customers with their SureStart Plus® 4-star warranty, which protects against manufacturer defects in the shingles (for life), and covers the cost of materials, tear-off, disposal, and labor. The warranty is also transferable if you ever sell your home (for up to 15 years).

All quotes include this warranty in the price. Please refer to the CertainTeed® SureStart® brochure for more specific information.

Q: Will you replace rotten wood?
A: Yes, but the price is conditional and not included in the quote. Moderate roof rot is a major structural issue, but difficult to spot without tearing off the old shingles first. After we strip the roof down to the plywood, we’ll determine which pieces we should replace and then add additional charges.

Q: My previous roof leaked around the chimney. How can I be sure it won’t leak again?
A: Certain vulnerable areas, like around chimneys, require flashing (sheet metal) which serves as a surefire stopgap for any leakage. But flashing requires a skilled contractor to install. When you hire us to replace your roof, you’ll never have a problem with your flashing.

Q: I’ve heard icicles can cause water damage to a roof. How can I protect against it?
A: What you’re referring to is commonly called an “ice dam.” During the winter, when icicles form along the roof’s edge, the water from melted snow will flow down the roof and stagnate behind the icy build up—the “ice dam”—that forms along the roof’s perimeter.

Ice dams can wreak havoc on a roof. We protect against them by using GAF’s® Weather Watch® ice and water shield, CertainTeed’s® DiamondDeck® synthetic underlayment, and CertainTeed’s® Sure Start Starter Strips®.

Q: Does your Best Price Guarantee cover complete roofing systems?
A: Yes. It covers all of our services.

Q: Are you licensed and insured?
A: Yes. NexGen Exterior Remodeling is a licensed and insured roofer in the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
