J.A. Goodson Construction has highly trained roofers with many decades of experience.

The severe storms of the past few years have lead to a rash of 'storm chasers' (out of state companies) coming in and doing some sub-par work. They bring their grossly underpaid crews with them and bang out as many jobs as they can and then leave town as quickly as they showed up. You the homeowner, are then left trying to play phone tag with an out of state contact who then tries to coordinate your repairs with a local company. Perhaps you know of someone who has gone through this. We feel this is 'bad business' and therefore never subcontract our roofs.

Have you thought about your roof lately?

Time and weather can damage your roof. Most homeowners are unaware of this damage until they are confronted with interior leaks, which can greatly increase the cost of repairs or replacement. Don't wait until it's too late. Inspections are FREE, waiting is not. Have your roof inspected now to insure its integrity is still intact.

Shingle manufacturers have listened to homeowners' desires and, as a result there are more colors, styles, and warranties than ever before. If your are in need of a new roof, we can recommend several choices that fit your home and budget.

Give us a call. We'll be happy to drop by at a time convenient for you, and take a look at your roof, free of charge.


Your Roof

When a roof can account for as much as 40% of the average home's exterior, many factors weigh into the choice of materials.
Some surfaces are more beautiful than others. Some offer greater resilience or endurance. Some are more affordable. But the one roofing surface which offers all those attributes in balance is the asphalt shingle.
Now accounting for about 80% of the residential roof surfacing in the United States, asphalt shingles are measured against a variety of standards that evaluate fire and wind resistance, tear strength, and other key performance indicators.
Whether 'three tab' or 'architectural', J.A. Goodson Construction LLC installs only High Quality shingles from the industry's top manufacturers that meet and exceed these industry standards.


Three Tab Shingle

Three tab shingles are fairly thin, lightweight and are of single ply thickness. The "3 tab" element makes it so that an individual part of the shingle (one third) can be lifted by the wind without having to lift the entire shingle. (All of those factors make a 3 tab shingle less desirable if you live in a high wind area.)
Also, every cutout (or key way) on a 3 tab roof exposes the top of the shingle beneath it resulting in only 1 ply (layer) between the elements and your roof deck.



Architectural / Dimensional Shingle

The basic material for the dimensional shingle is a little bit thicker.There are also extra pieces laminated on to each shingle to give it a thicker and more random look.
Those extra pieces also add more weight and rigidity to the shingle. If the wind is going to lift this shingle, it has to blow hard enough to lift the entire 36" shingle, unlike the three tab shingle which has 12" long tabs.
This solid construction also makes it a true '2 ply' system (2 layers of protection between the elements and your roof deck). These are all reasons why some insurance companies now insist on the installation of dimensional shingles when a new roof is required in a claim.
