The Best Roof for the Midwest

Clayton Hoover and Sons Roofing has been serving the Michiana community for over 70 years. We’d like to think we know the Indiana climate’s short and long-term effects on your roof! When disaster strikes, we’re there. Let us guide you in your next roofing decision while living in the Midwest. 

For simplicity, versatility, and protection, Clayton Hoover and Sons Roofing recommends gabled roofs. Gable roofs easily shed water and snow, which makes them great for areas with heavy snowfall and rain. The steep pitch of gable roofs allows for excellent water drainage and fewer leaks. We’ve seen Indiana thunderstorms in the summer, we say no more buckets on the floor! When the sun is beating down, know that your gable roof provides additional ventilation to keep you cool and keep costs down.

When we begin a roof, we like to use CertainTeed Swiftstart and the Landmark series asphalt shingles, the best shingle and warranty combination for the South Bend summer. CertainTeed Swiftstart is the first course of five included in the Landmark series. This metric starter shingle is designed for use with CertainTeed Landmark shingles and without them, it could potentially void the warranty. Rather than cutting expensive field shingles to use as starters, you can save time and money by starting with Swiftstart. It’s in the name.

There are many reasons why Clayton Hoover and Sons Roofing loves CertainTeed products. Landmark has now upgraded the wind warranty from 110 mph to 130 mph when Swiftstart is installed along the roof eaves and rakes of your roof. This is good news for Michiana homeowners. CertainTeed’s precision sealant adds extra protection against leaks and moisture. And the best part is using Swiftstart reduces installation time, so jobs are finished faster!
