Sorry, Newbie on the site and the length
We had a hail storm which totaled our shake shingle roof. It is about 35 sq. and has a 12/12 pitch, whatever that means
I’m taking this off some bids as I don’t know much about roofs but I’m starting to learn. We could only have shake roofs until the storm when the association came up with the following list of approved shingles we could use;
Elk Domain Winslow
Gaf Grand Canyon
Gaf Grand Sequoia
Certainteed Presidential TL Ultimate
Certainteed Landmark TLIR
It seems everyone is pushing the GAF Grand Canyon but not really sure if that is because it is that good of big money maker
I’ve been reading this site for a while and figured I’ll just ask for help.
What would you guys recommend and why for replacement or would you go back with shake or something other than what is listed?
I just want to do the right thing. I would also like to know about ridge vents, what kind. BTW we live in Kansas and get plenty of wind, heat and yes hail. Thank you all in advance for the help and time on this issue.
