Above are photos from a recent roof replacement job in Phillipsburg, NJ. Phillipsburg is a historic town located halfway between Philadelphia and New York City and about 30 miles from the Poconos.
The homeowner asked Warren Thompson & Son Roofing & Siding to assess a slate gable roof that was showing signs of age. The existing slate roof had some broken tiles and also some faulty flashing.
Based on the age and condition of the existing roof and the fact that the homeowner was looking for a long-term solution, we recommended a TAMKO 50-year roof system. TAMKO asphalt shingles are available in a variety of colors and styles and are warranted for 50 years. For this roof, the homeowner selected a grey shingle from TAMKO’s Heritage line, which offers a slightly aged appearance similar to slate. We removed and disposed of the old slate shingles, reshingled the roof and the ridge vent with the TAMKO Heritage shingles and replaced the flashing around the chimney.
