Which Shingle Should I Pick?

Which Shingle and Color is Right for You?
Very often customers call LaBelle Roofing and panic about choosing a shingle color for their new roof.  This is understandable, as a roof is a capital expense and customers will be living with their new investment for a long time to come.

 Choosing a color  from a small booklet sample is difficult – it’s akin to picking a paint color from the small square sample you pick up at any paint store.  Even a larger sample does not take into account light and the impact of colors in the surrounding environment. We at LaBelle Roofing will always provide you with a listing of locations with colors of interest, so you can drive by and see the colors in “real time.” In fact, we suggest you drive by on a cloudy day and a sunny day, as color can vary dramatically with different lighting.

The Harsh Reality About Ice Dams

By |

Ice dams are a huge problem in the New England area, especially around the Boston Metrowest. Ice dams form when snow on the rooftop melts and then re-freezes at the colder, bottom edge of the roof.  They receive their name because they hold water like any dam does. Your roof is designed to shed, rather than hold, water. When trapped water finds its way under your shingles it can wreak havoc, potentially causing serious damage to the interior of your home. Although gutters can exacerbate the problem, ice dams can and do form without gutters. […]
