Replace Your Asphalt Shingle Roofs With Confidence
Sentry Roof re-roofs your multi family apartment complex professionally and quickly with minimal disruption to your residents. We have decades of experience working with HOAs, owners, and managers of multi-family complexes and are proud to partner with condo & Apartment communities of all sizes across metro Atlanta.
Most apartment complexes are roofed with asphalt shingles, which are a very good product for steep-slope roofing systems, but they don’t last forever. Aging materials, poor shingle quality, improperly installed roofing systems, and other factors can all cause leaks, degradation, and roof failure.
When roofs start to leak often or approach the end of their useful life, it’s time to look at re-roofing your complex.
Replacing the roofs on your multi-family complex is not a decision to take lightly — it’s a big project that requires a lot of experience, knowledge, professionalism and a crew that’s large enough to complete the job correctly and quickly. Most importantly, it requires integrity to focus on your best interests and finish the job to your complete satisfaction. These are some of the key reasons HOAs and property managers choose Sentry Roof Services.
Types of Asphalt Shingles
You have three options when choosing asphalt shingles for your steep-slope roofs. All come in a wide variety of colors:
Popular and low-cost, 3-tab shingles are flat, light, and rated for 60-80 mph wind uplift. They’re named “3-tab” because they’re designed to make a single shingle look like three shingles. While these are your most cost-conscious option and are considered entry-level, they can be effective and appropriate for many complexes and needs.
Architectural shingles are more substantial than 3-tab shingles and have varying patterns and tones for a 3-D look. They’re made with thicker layers of materials so they’re stronger, hail resistant, and durable. Rated for 110 mph wind uplift or up to 130 mph when installed with six nails per shingle, architectural shingles are preferred by homeowners who want improved appearance, performance, and longevity.
Premium (or designer) shingles have distinct appearances that mimic the look of natural roofing materials such as cedar shake or slate. Multi-family complexes that want to elevate the appearance of the property but don’t want the expense of natural products often choose these shingles. Most are rated for a wind uplift of up to 110 mph.
Have a different type of roof? Or a combination of roof types?
If your multi-family complex has metal roofs or natural or synthetic tile, slate, or shake roofs, Sentry can replace, renovate and repair them. Our crews are true craftsmen with many specialized skill sets that are tough to find. We’ve worked on some of metro Atlanta’s most well-known and historic properties, including 100+-year-old roofs that have a combination of many types of roofs that make up a single roofing system.
Often a multi-family complex will have asphalt shingle roofs on the main portions of the buildings but will have standing seam metal roofs or other roofing types over entryways, balconies, clubhouses or outbuildings. As a full-service roofing contractor that works with every type of roofing material, we can source and match almost any roofing material and fabricate custom designs in our warehouse (or on-site) as part of the job.

Roof repairs and maintenance
To keep the roofs of your multifamily complex in top shape, we recommend you inspect them regularly and perform standard maintenance tasks as needed, such as removing debris, clearing drainage systems, inspecting materials and roof penetrations, and looking for potential problem areas. It’s the best way to protect your property and investment. It’s also the best way to identify issues with the original roof installation or construction that may appear over time and need to be addressed.
The Sentry Roof service department offers our Sentry Roof Care annual maintenance program, or we can work with your HOA, maintenance department or management company to complete repairs on an as-needed basis. We highly recommend any minor issues, including potential damage from severe storms, are identified and handled as soon as possible so a minor issue doesn’t become a major one.
A leaking roof can damage the building roof deck and the ceilings, walls, and contents inside the property. A leak can remain undetected for quite some time if no one gets up on the roof to inspect it periodically.
All Sentry Roof work is warrantied, even repairs.
Your replacement roofs from Sentry Roof will come with a manufacturer’s warranty and a contractor’s warranty.
The manufacturer’s warranty is provided by the manufacturer and covers the shingles and sometimes related materials as well. Warranty lengths and coverages vary. For 3-tab shingles, warranties will range from 10 to 25 years. For architectural shingles and premium/designer shingles, they range from 20 to 50 years. Some manufacturers offer lifetime warranties for their products. For details about asphalt shingle warranties, please see Ashpalt Shingle roofing systems and talk to us about your options.
The Sentry Roof contractor warranty covers our labor and any problems with materials we use outside of the manufacturer’s warranty. For details about the differences between warranties in general, see Types of Commercial Roof Warranties.
Your new multi-family roofs also come with Sentry Roof’s reputation to back them up. We stand by our work. We are a word-of-mouth business, having operated successfully for more than 35 years largely through referrals from satisfied clients. Our goal is your manage your project to your complete satisfaction and to develop a long-term relationship as your roofing contractor. We hope to be of service to you for the entire life of your multi-family property.
