Shingle Roofing

Bowles Roofing has been repairing and replacing shingle roofs in Leon, Gadsden and Wakulla counties since 1984. Your home’s roof is it’s best defense against the elements and the harsh weather we sometimes experience.  On a typical sunny, Tallahassee summer day it’s possible for the temperature in your attic to reach 140 degrees or more.  That’s why it’s just as important to properly vent your shingle roof, as it is to have the proper amount of insulation.  While upgrading insulation will help alleviate part of the problem, the correct amount and type of attic ventilation can help the attic space exhaust heat rather than absorbing it and help keep your utility bills to a minimum.  When you hire Bowles Roofing you can rest assured we will examine these elements and provide you with an honest assessment of how best to repair or replace your shingle roof. Your new roof will not only enhance the look and value of your home, it will save you on utilities as well.

When repairing or installing a shingle roof, is this a good time to inspect the quality of my roof’s ventilation?

Since you’re already having repairs done to your roof, or replacing it, this is the best time to inspect the roof’s ventilation.  If you have an older home, the attic ventilation may be less than adequate and now is the perfect time to fix this.

As a former contracts manager I was initially greatly impressed with the comprehensiveness and professionalism of their bound proposal. Their performance (full roof replacement) was just as professional and did not disappoint. Thank you Matt and Team Bowles for an excellent job!
