3-tab shingle is a common choice for Roof Repair and Replacement
If your roof leaks, it’s time for a change. Regardless of whether you choose Roof.net as your Alexandria roof repair company or decided that the roof has served its time and are ready for a roof replacement, a leak means that damage has occurred and will continue to occur until the problem is resolved. So you pull out the yellow pages and peruse the section dedicated to local roofers. The first gives you several options for your roof including something called a 3-tab shingle. The second says something similar, stating that it is their most popular option. You look around the neighborhood, but all of the shingles look like they are the standard, asphalt shingles you have always had. So what is the difference between those you are familiar with and these 3-tab shingles?
The answer is most likely–nothing. Most of the roofs around use 3-tab shingles, even though they don’t look like it. A 3-tab shingle is a one foot tall, three foot wide shingle that has slots cut on one side to create the three tabs. After being nailed down, the next 3-tab shingle is placed over the top so the bottoms of the tabs come to the top of the slits of the previous shingle, offset so that the new slits hit directly between the original shingle’s slits.
When most people think of a shingle, they think of a twelve inch wide strip of composite material. The truth is, a single shingle is three feet wide, but is designed to look like three separate shingles. By using a single piece of asphalt to create multiple shingles, the overall strength of the shingles is greatly enhanced, making it much less likely to be taken off by wind or fall off after a snowfall. In areas of heavy precipitation, such as Alexandria, Virginia this is especially beneficial.
Alexandria Housing Market
The home sales in Alexandria over the last year have decreased by nearly half, 44.9%. Although the number of homes being sold has decreased, the selling price of homes has increased by 2.7%. As of April 1st, the average price per square of houses in Alexandria was $289, up 3.6% over the previous year’s average. So although the amount of homes has dropped, homeowners and potential buyers alike deem the houses to be worth a greater amount. From this it can be safely assumed that while home sales are temporarily lower than they were a year ago, the trend will soon reverse to show an increase both in home prices and in number of homes sold.
One of the reasons why many Alexandria natives are unwilling to relocate is the atmosphere of the city. Within the city limits is one of the nation’s first designated historic districts, which continues to attract both visitors and move-ins with its 18th century charm. From the cobblestone streets to the waterfront views, one can’t visit without feeling a strong sense of national nostalgia. Old Towne Alexandria has been and ever will be prized real estate.
Perhaps what Alexandria is best known for is the dynamic and diverse neighborhoods, from Del Ray to Alexandria and from West End to Mount Vernon. People of hugely varying tastes in style and location can all find an area of the city to call home. As well, the city is also choice for its proximity to several other major cities, including Washington, D.C., Annapolis, MD, Baltimore, MD, and Richmond, VA. The excellent public school system, combined with the close location to major cities convinces many working professionals to settle here with their families. If you are in the area and are debating where to invest in real estate, Alexandria, VA is a premiere choice.

I loved working with Ken! I got 5 quotes for roof replacement and/or repair. Ken is the only one that showed up with an instrument to test the water damage, if any, from the missing shingles on my roof. He made me feel as if I was a relative. As promised, his men showed up the next day to repair my roof and they did an excellent job. I would recommend Ken to anyone needing a new roof or roof repair job.

Exceptional company. Great work and very professional. Works with the customer. I called Roof.Net on a Friday evening at 7PM and on Saturday morning at 9AM, Ken met me at our house. He quickly diagnosed the issue and provided an estimate for the repairs. He scheduled repairs first thing, Monday morning. When I asked to reschedule repairs for Thursday morning, he was willing to reschedule the work to the day I requested. The repairs were completed in a timely manner with no issues. I most highly recommend Roof.net to replacing or repairing roofs.

I'm extremely pleased with my roof replacement completed by Roof.net. Roof.net really proved to me that they believe highly in quality; they are not satisfied until you are (payment is important, but the owner of this company makes you feel that quality is more important...). The owner comes with numerous years of experience and illustrates his passion for this type of work by educating his customers and ensuring that they are satisfied. I'm very pleased that I found Roof.net and highly recommend them to my neighbors, family, and friends.
