During the last weekend in March, Kyle Hoffman was pleased to attend the 2014 GAF Wealth Builder Conference held at Wild Dunes Resort in Isle of Palms, SC. At the conference, Kyle accepted several awards on behalf of Roofing & More. First were all three 2013 GAF Master Elite™ Excellence Awards.

  • Training Excellence – Roofing & More excelled in continuing education in the roofing industry, surpassing the requirement of 10 class credits annually.
  • Installation Excellence – Roofing & More exceeded the minimum of 10 “Perfect Ten” ratings on Golden Pledge inspections.
  • Consumer Protection Excellence – Roofing & More exceeded its Consumer Protection Excellence goal of 100+ enhanced warranties in the calendar year.

As a Triple Excellence winner, Roofing & More is among less than 0.25% of contactors nationally who earned this recognition in 2013. Roofing & More also received the 2013 GAF Steep Slope Master Elite President’s Club Award, which a contractor is only eligible for after receiving all three Excellence Awards three years in a row. Less than 100 contractors earned this award nationally based on consistent performance and reliability.

“I want to thank each and every person at Roofing & More for their hard work and dedication to our customers and to their team,” said Kyle. “This is truly a great moment for our company.”

Roofing & More thanks all of our Northern Virginia roofing customers who have entrusted us with their business for the past two decades. We look forwarding to continuing to provide the same excellent service for the coming year!

6 Ways to Express Your Style with an Arlington VA Entry Door

Customizing an entry door can turn your home from ordinary into extraordinary. Your Arlington VA entry door will be the first thing that visitors see upon arrival, so it makes sense to choose a door that expresses your style and adds value. Use the following customizations to create your one-of-a-kind entryway!

  1. Colors and stains. Your choice of a rich paint or stain color makes a dramatic statement about your style and can add just the right pop to your home’s exterior.
  2. Decorative glass. Most manufacturers offer a selection of decorative glass patterns as an elegant way to add beauty and privacy to an entryway.
  3. Sidelights and transoms. Sidelights and/or transoms installed around a door fill an entrance with natural light, expand the view from inside and create a stunning focal point.
  4. Grilles. Grilles create the traditional appearance of individual windowpanes. They can be attached to the interior and exterior of the glass, or permanently sealed between panes. Grilles add security and a decorative element that can be coordinated with window grilles.
  5. Between-the-glass options. Blinds permanently sealed between the panes allow for light control and privacy, and never need cleaning. Grilles between the glass give the same dimension with much easier cleaning than grilles attached to the glass surface.
  6. Door hardware. Further customize a door with unique hardware in nickel, brass, oil-rubbed bronze, and more.

Roofing & More proudly installs ProVia® doors, the finest replacement entry doors on the market featuring a wonderful combination of beauty and elegance with thermally efficient performance. ProVia® doors also include a lifetime limited transferrable warranty.

Northern Virginia Siding & More: Home Improvements with the Best ROI for 2014

From painting the front door to reroofing, there are hundreds of home improvements to increase the overall appeal and comfort of your home. However, not all improvements are created equal. Some will boost a home’s value and give you a large return on investment (ROI), while others could actually put a dent in value. Here are a few of the best mid-range home improvements for 2014, as reported by Remodeling Magazine.

  • Steel entry door replacement. Many potential buyers judge a house by its exterior, so exterior improvements such as garage and entry door replacement is a simple way to improve curb appeal with a relatively small cost out-of-pocket. ROI: 96.6%
  • Window replacement. This is another smart upgrade that immediately increases curb appeal and makes a home appear more valuable, all while improving energy efficiency – another big selling point. Replacement with wood windows will cost slightly more than vinyl windows, but the return on investment is also higher: 79.3% versus 78.7%. ROI: 78-79%
  • Siding replacement (vinyl). The clean, crisp look of vinyl siding remains one of the best choices for Northern Virginia siding. It offers a high ROI, yet is the most affordable siding option – a smart choice if you’re planning to sell your home in the near future. ROI: 78.2%
  • Roof replacement. Investing in a quality roof that protects your home and family is always money well spent. This cost vs. value estimate is for asphalt shingles. ROI: 67.6%

Considering a new project to add to the value of your home? Roofing & More’s wide array of home improvement services includes roofing, gutters, Arlington siding, windows, doors – everything you need to improve the look and enhance the value of your home’s exterior.

4 Reasons to Keep Vinyl at the Top of Your Sterling Siding Choices

If you are considering a Sterling siding project this spring or summer, chances are you have wondered about the advantages of vinyl siding. It is a consistently popular choice for homeowners, and for good reason. Vinyl has great versatility and also provides an attractive polished look to a home’s exterior – no painting required!

When trying to determine if vinyl siding is right for your Northern Virginia home, consider some of these benefits:

  1. Vinyl siding is durable, with the ability to remain strong and intact even when subjected to hurricane-force winds of 110mph. Its composition is unfazed by heat, cold and moisture.
  2. Even when exposed to intense sunlight, vinyl siding resists discoloration and fading. And because the color extends through the material, you won’t need to worry about the occasional scrape or dent marring its surface.
  3. Maintenance of vinyl siding is relatively hassle-free, with no need for paint or scraping – ever. A simple wash a few times a year will remove dirt and reveal an attractive exterior that looks just like it did when it was first installed.
  4. Vinyl is the most affordable siding option. Because it is easy to work with, labor costs are low, and the material itself is less expensive than fiber cement or wood. These combined savings can be passed on to you.

If a home with a beautiful exterior catches your eye, you may likely discover it is wrapped in quality vinyl siding. This material may be an ideal option for your Northern Virginia siding project. Let the pros at Roofing & More help you weigh the options and find the best siding material, color and style to compliment your home. Give us a call today at (877) 398-4555 or click here to schedule a FREE estimate.
