DR CONTRACTORS has been roofing in Indianapolis for ten years. We believe in the use of Ice & Water shield in all valleys, on all walls and protrusions, and at the gutter line. We also believe in the use of drip edge and gutter apron to prevent Ice Dams from occurring on your home.
We use the largest suppliers of roofing in the country which include; GAF, TAMCO, Owens Corning, Certainteed, and IKO. Many of these suppliers have changed warranty information to "Life time" but it is DR CONTRACTORS opinion that nothing lasts forever on your home.
It is a proven fact that a thirty year dimensional shingle will not last thirty years here in Indiana. The average life of a roof in Indiana is 16.6 years due to climate and weather conditions. Manufacturers do not make shingles "State Specific" so the thirty year shingle may last thirty years in Arizona but not in Indiana.
When you are talking about the year age of shingles; 25,30,40,50 all you are talking about is the thickness of the material. Many manufacturers offer an Impact resistant shingle to account for hail here in Indiana and throughout the country. This shingle costs more of course. DR CONTRACTORS uses a specific supplier to fit the home owners color selection, all suppliers we use are competitive in price but have variations in color. Please see suppliers sites for details.
