Roof Replacement in Centreville, VA

Roof Repair and Roof Replacement in Centreville, VA

This week’s customer journey is pretty special.  Alice reached out to Schaefer Burdett Exteriors a little over 2 years ago regarding a roof leak.  The roof was about 16 years old at the time.  Josh went and visited with the homeowners and went up on the roof to inspect the issue.  After inspecting, a few shingles were discovered as missing and damaged.  Josh offered up a replacement option, and a repair option.

After some consideration, the homeowners decided to proceed with the repair option at that time.  Josh was able to repair the roof on the spot, using materials he kept in his truck.  The homeowners were given a 1-year warranty against leaking for the roof repair.

When we are able, Schaefer Burdett provides both a repair and replacement options for roofing.  Most asphalt roofs in the area last around 18-20 years before they start to expire and need replacing.  If we inspect the roof and it’s not able to be repaired, we’ll tell you and provide a replacement price option.

2 years after the repair was complete, the homeowners knew it was time to replace.  Since they had such a good experience with Schaefer Burdett, they called us back exclusively for an estimate.  Mike, one of Schaefer Burdett’s Project Consultants, went out and provided a consultative estimate.  Within a few days, the homeowners proceeded and within a few weeks they had a new roof!  They went with Certainteed Landmark in Charcoal, a timeless look that certainly increases curb appeal of the home as well as provides peace of mind against any leaks.

If you or anyone you need a new roof, siding, windows, doors or gutters, give us a call!  You can also contact us here.

Roof Replacement: Northern Virginia

In this edition of Schaefer Burdett’s customer journey, we will be highlighting a townhouse roof replacement.  Townhouses are a unique project – they’re often 3-stories high and usually significantly smaller and quicker projects than single family homes.  However, many townhouses have unique shapes, pitches, and layouts.  This townhouse, as seen in our final drone picture, has an extended back side of the roof, making it larger than the average townhouse roof.

A normal town home roof is roughly 1,000 square feet, accounting for waste during the construction job.  According to Cost Vs Value Report, the average cost for a roof replacement in the Great Washington Area is $24,647 for 235 lb fiberglass asphalt shingles for a 3,000 square foot roof.  These types of shingles include Certainteed Landmark, GAF Timberline HD, among others.

Breaking the math down, $24,647 into 3,000 square feet results in $8.21 per square foot.  This is the cost per square foot to replace a roof in Northern Virginia, on average.  If you own a normal townhouse at 1,000 square feet, you’re looking at paying about $8,210 on average.  This pricing does not represent Schaefer Burdett’s roofing pricing.  In fact, Schaefer Burdett is almost always priced below the national average especially for asphalt roofs. We maintain extremely high quality but have a low-overhead business, resulting in a great value for our customers.

So, if you’re getting door hangers that are advertising “$5,000 per roof!” without having ever been on your roof, measured your roof with an EagleView, or even met you, beware!  These types of companies often have limited or zero project management during the job and quality could be questionable.  Schaefer Burdett Exteriors prices each roof individually after speaking with our customers in-person, hand-measuring the roof, or ordering a reliable satellite report on the roof size and slope.

If you or anyone you know needs a new roof before we head into the busy fall, please mention the code “CVV” and get $250 off your next project.  Schaefer Burdett Exteriors specializes in all types of roofing, siding, windows, and doors. Please contact us here if you’d like a free estimate:

Roof Replacement: Certainteed Landmark in Sterling, VA

Our next customer journey is about Jody J. in Sterling, VA.  Jody reached out to SBE regarding issues with the roof leaking and possible mold forming on the decking of the roof.  Josh, co-owner of SBE, conducted a site visit to inspect the issue.

Josh went on the roof to inspect the initial damage, then went into the adjacent attic to inspect further.  After doing a thorough external inspection Josh came to the conclusion that the roof needed to be replaced.  After a full review, Josh informed Jody that the issue of mold was due to poor ventilation of the roof.  Josh also informed Jody that the asphalt shingles were beyond their usable life and recommended a full roof replacement in order to provide a comprehensive solution.

One thing worth mentioning about this particular job: SBE was not the cheapest price Jody received.  Josh was up front and honest about being more expensive than the other competitor that Jody was meeting with.  SBE prices their jobs in a very fair manner and is usually right in the “middle of the pack” with pricing.  However, we do not aim or try to be the cheapest.  One of the reasons we simply cannot be the cheapest price is due to our extensive hands-on project management approach to exterior projects.  A company owner touches every piece of the job – and we stake our reputation on our work. Trust is paramount when hiring a roofing contractor.

Within three weeks of signing up, SBE started the roofing job and finished within 2 days, including a thorough clean up and final inspection.  This would normally have been a 1-day job, but the customer elected to replace the whole plywood deck as part of the job.  Karen and her husband decided to change the roofing material to Certainteed Landmark in Heather Blend (a brown variant).  The new asphalt shingle increased the curb appeal of the Sterling single family home. 

Recently, Jody and Karen hired SBE for yet another project!  Stay tuned for our future post where we will highlight the new siding, gutters, and trim project.

SBE is a “Shingle Master” through Certainteed, meaning we offer a 4-star warranty that is backed by Certainteed, one of the largest shingle manufacturers in the world.  Certainteed Landmark carries a 50-year, non-prorated warranty for materials, as well as a 130-mph wind warranty.  SBE also offers a 10 year “no questions asked” workmanship warranty for this type of roof replacement.  SBE offers 24-hour emergency roofing services for all previous and existing roofing customers and we take pride in delivering top-notch customer service.
