Atlantic Beach, FL (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Roofing contractors in Atlantic Beach, FL at Roof Link Inc. are now installing algae resistant shingles. These shingles are installed for general roof repair and for new roof replacements according to the Roof Link Inc. website. The growth of mold and algae in the high humidity state of Florida is the reason for this new change by Roof Link. The Owens Corning company has been selected to provide algae resistant shingles to Roof Link partner companies for all future repair work.

Damage from wind, hail and rain include only part of the problem to new and older roofs. The natural sunlight deterioration happens over period of five years or more. The ultraviolet rays of the sun can easily deteriorate shingles that have no protective additives inside the materials. Companies like Owens Corning have started to produce shingles that are able to repel sunlight damage as well as other harmful substances that can shorten the lifespan of roofing shingles. The new Weather Lock series is designed to keep out the substances that normally would deteriorate lower grade shingles and expedite damage.
There are building codes throughout the state of Florida that help protect homeowners from contractors that apply non-state approved shingles. Contractors that are not licensed can apply cheaper grade shingles that do not meet safety or building code requirements. Contractor fraud is high in states like Florid although new legislation is frequently written to offer consumer level protection. The partner companies of Roof Link Inc. are licensed contractors that use materials that are building code certified for all of Florida’s 67 counties.
The addition of Owens Corning shingles is designed to offer increased protection and improve the satisfaction ratio of homeowners that have roof repairs and replacements completed in Florida.
Homeowners that depend on insurance companies might not be aware of the selection process that goes on behind the scenes when damage is scheduled for repair. It is common for some insurance companies to take the lowest bid from roofing contractors that are available to perform a repair or installation.
These cost reducing efforts do take place and homeowners that become educated about the types of products used in the roofing industry can help prevent low quality materials installation. The prevention of algae and mold are two of the things that not all roofing companies offer homeowners that request repairs or installations.
