About Tennessee Roofing
One of the most ubiquitous professionals in construction is the roofing contractor. In addition to consultation, they are also responsible for roofing installation and repair. Roofing contractors recommend area-specific roofing systems. Roofing contractors who work on residential homes use asphalt and metal materials primarily. Some climates allow the use of cedar shank roofing. Additionally, waterproofing and winterizing roofs are a big part of a roofing contractor's job description.
Tennessee experiences a temperate climate. Winters range from 36 degrees to 41 degrees, depending on the area of the state. Summers are between 78 degrees to 83 degrees. The eastern part of Tennessee sees colder temperatures, due to its higher elevation. The coolest temperature on record was -32 degrees on December 30, 1917. The warmest temperature was 113 degrees on August 9, 1930. Tennessee experiences a large amount of rainfall, primarily in March. Annual rainfall averages between 48 inches to 54 inches. Snowfall is approximately 10 inches annually, depending on the location.
The state of Tennessee requires all contractors to be licensed prior to working on a project. To obtain a license, a roofing contractor must have a reference letter, a current financial statement, and a copy of their charter.
Energy Efficient Roofs
ENERGY STAR recommends reflective roofing systems, which lower rooftop temperatures by up to 100 degrees. The minimum requirements for an ENERGY STAR roof is metal with a single-ply membrane. When choosing a contractor, find one that uses products created by ENERGY STAR partners like GAF-Elk and CertainTeed. In Tennessee, All Types Construction uses GAF-Elk products, and Cardinal Roofing uses CertainTeed products. GAF-Elk offers Marquis WeatherMax shingles that can withstand 80 mph wind. CertainTeed offers the energy-saving cool roof system called Landmark Solaris. Landmark Solaris reduces roof temperature up to 60 degrees.
The most unusual roof in Tennessee belongs to the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga. This building has a rooftop made entirely of glass. Another interesting rooftop belongs to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Upgraded to a $37 million facility in 2001, the Hall features a concave, modern flat-roof. Its futuristic design makes it an instantly recognizable landmark in Nashville.
