Featured Image

Apex, as one of the fastest growing towns in the NC Triangle, and best places to live in the country, is finding out very quickly the demand for all kinds of home service businesses, especially roofing companies!

We’ve been working in and around Apex since we started up over 30 years ago, so we’ve seen just how much things have changed and stayed the same as Apex has grown!

Along with the population of the town, the number of roofing companies available to Apex homeowners has grown as well. That can be overwhelming to those who are just starting their own roofing projects for the first time, so we want to help out by narrowing down the list to some of the best companies in Apex.

In this blog, we’ll be going over:

Before we get started, a quick note: the companies on this list are not ranked in any particular order, and the information that we have on here comes primarily from Google reviews and the company websites, not our own personal experiences and interactions.

Also, you may be wondering why we, a roofing company that serves Apex, is writing about our competition in the area. Well, our mission is to become a source of roofing information for homeowners in the Triangle area, and that by sharing our knowledge and experience with you, you'll feel like you know us long before you need to reach out to us for a roofing service.

A big part of the roofing industry is of course, the companies, so we're going to talk about them! Companies can pay to be ranked highly on some of the more popular national rankings sites, so we took it upon ourselves to make lists of local roofers that you can trust are accurate and unbiased.

Alright, with that being said, let’s jump in!

Legacy prefers working with CertainTeed roofing products, and has been certified as a SELECT ShingleMaster by CertainTeed.

Triangle’s Trusted Roofing

  • Founded: 2018
  • Headquarters: Cary, NC
  • Service Area: Cary, Apex, Chapel Hill

Though Triangle’s Trusted Roofing Company only started serving Apex in 2018, its owner has been in the roofing industry for decades, owning a company in Rochester, Minnesota, for 13 years before moving to Cary. Triangle’s Trusted strives to make sure their customers are in the loop through every part of the roofing process, and responding quickly if something goes wrong. For their roof replacements, they choose to work with CertainTeed Landmark and Owens Corning Duration architectural asphalt shingles. As a result, the company is held in high regard with both manufacturers, and is a CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster, as well as an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor.

How Often Should You Get a Roof Replacement?

When you’re talking about how often you need to get a roof replacement, the first question that needs to be asked and answered regards to the type of material that you have on your roof.

Architectural shingle roof_WebP

Asphalt shingle roofs, as long as they’re installed properly, will need to be replaced every 15 to 30 years, depending on the kind of shingle on the roof. 3-Tab shingles are on the low end of that scale, getting 15 to 20 years in good conditions before they will start to lose their grip and strength. Architectural shingles are the next step up, and have a two-ply design, making them twice as thick, and last close to twice as long as 3-Tab shingles, around 25-30 years. Luxury shingles are the third type of asphalt shingle, and are the most expensive, used to simulate the look of a slate, or ceramic roof. These upscale products usually last around 30 years, sometimes more in ideal conditions.

In the areas surrounding Raleigh, we also see metal panels used pretty frequently for roofing, of which there are two main types: standing seam and screw-down. Standing seam metal roofs tend to make it for around 50 solid years before they run into issues, but screw-down panels are a completely different story if they are installed over a heated space like your home.

When metal heats up, it expands, and then contracts as it cools, causing movement throughout the panels and roof. If the panels are screwed down into the frame of the roof, they don’t move with the panels, widening the holes around the screws, and allowing leaks to appear. So if you’ve got screw-down metal panels on your roof, you can expect it to need replacing far sooner than a standing seam metal roof, and even sooner than an architectural shingle roof.
