Residential Roofing Contractor Services throughout Roseville, Rocklin, Loomis, Placer County, and Beyond.
Layering Twice is Not so Nice
If you need a new roof, and two layers of roofing are already in place, building codes require stripping the roofing down to the sheathing. Most homes in Roseville and around Placer County are strong enough to support two layers of roofing, but installing some of the heavier laminated shingles over even a single layer may over-stress rafters and other structural parts of your home. Further, some shingle manufacturer’s warranties do not cover this type of installation.
An important reason to consider complete removal before re-roofing is to have us check for water damage or insect infestation underneath. If you have any general questions about residential roofing or the top roofing materials currently being used in the residential market, please give us a call.

A full warranty covers the replacement of defective materials, while a materials warranty offers prorated coverage. Most warranties include full reimbursement for materials and installation for a limited time — up to 10 years for asphalt shingles and 50 years for faux slate and steel roofing. Generally, none of the warranties cover damage from winds over 130 mph. Nor do they cover faulty installation.
How to choose a residential roofing contractor may seem like a daunting task to undertake, the process is pretty simple. Take a look at our guide on how to choose a roofing contractor for more information on the top items to look for. At the end of the day, if we had to break it down into a few bullet points oh, it would be multiple certifications and long-term Industry experience.
In other words, you have two warranties, one from the shingle manufacturer and one from us as the installer. The installer, if certified for the product, can extend the warranty up to 50 years on some products. Bob Jahn’s Roofing in Roseville is a certified contractor for the products we sell. We are one of the only, if not the only Owens Corning Platinum roofing contractor in Roseville California. You can see our Platinum Preferred Roofing Contractor Certification here. We are also GAF certified weather stopper roofing contractor, and a select ShingleMaster certified contractor. Very few roofers hold these certifications let alone any local companies throughout the Sacramento area for the Placer county area.
What you need to ask yourself is, “Is this contractor going to be around to honor this warranty?“. We have been in business since 1980 and that is why our Contractors State License number is so low compared to others.
Types of Roofing
Asphalt Shingle Roofing
The most popular by far. Asphalt shingles are made of fiberglass sandwiched between asphalt and ceramic granules. Relatively light and easy to install, they are a good choice if you’re looking for style at a budget price. They may last 30 years or more but can be vulnerable to high winds. Asphalt roofing comes in two types. Laminated shingles, also known as “architectural” or “dimensional” shingles, are layered, and their thickness and depth make them look more like slate or wood shakes. Three-tab asphalt shingles, though similarly priced, are made in a single layer. They’re flatter and thinner than laminated shingles and don’t perform as well.
Concrete and clay tile Roofing
Concrete and clay tiles are manufactured in a wide array of colors, from light shades to dark or multi-colored, making it easy to coordinate your roof with exterior colors. Roof tiles can match any architectural style required for the building structure. They are designed to emulate traditional barrel style or other roofing materials such as wood and slate.
Tile roofs have the lowest life cycle cost of any other roofing material. Centuries old tile roofs are still enduring today.
Slate roofing tile has a long and storied history, and is generally known as one of the highest quality, longest lasting roofing materials on the market. In addition to being beautiful and durable, slate roof tiles are also fireproof and environmentally friendly. They also help to insulate the home below them, which can lower energy costs in the houses that use them.
With its longevity and curb appeal, most people that opt for a slate roof do so with the knowledge of the expense and other drawbacks. Weigh these carefully as you make your decision to ensure the right choice.

Roofing – Gutters – Insulation – Skylights – Solar
If you are getting a new roof and the old one is getting removed down to the sheathing or deck, now is the time to get your new seamless gutters, bring the attic insulation up to the recommended R level (resistance level to heat flow), add skylights or even solar panels.
The bottom line is to add value to your home, comfort, and peace of mind. Not to mention energy savings. The alternative is to get your new roof, then later have a section of this new roof torn out for solar panels or for skylights risking the warranty on your roof. If needed, we can refer you to gutter companies and solar panel installation companies throughout the Sacramento area that can help install any additional applications you would like added to your roof.
Further, with insulation, it is far easier and thus less expensive for you the homeowner. Additionally, you do not have workers and equipment going through your home and going up the crawl space to the attic.
