Deep Dive On Roofing
So you want to know more about roofing? Well, you've come to the right place! Vector construction has been in the roofing industry for a combined 25 years. We have installed hundreds of roofs, attended many conferences, and have had personal training directly from shingle manufacturers, not to mention our litany of training and licenses. So we know a thing or two about the roofing process! As far as the science behind roofing materials, Owens Corning has a track record of over 50 years of breakthroughs in the industry. Not only in roofing, but in the fiberglass industry as well! In fact Vector Construction has done a lot of research on fiberglass and Owens corning and have written a compilation of the history of fiberglass here! Oddly enough, the history of fiberglass is an interesting read.
Back to roofing though, we should probably start with the different types of roofing material. In truth, there are a multitude of materials that have been created throughout the years to protect homes from the elements. While we would love to cover all of them, we must limit our coverage to the common types of materials used in our service area in Illinois.
