Why would I consider replacing my roof and when ?
10 Reasons to use Architectural Shingles for your New Roof
- They are one of the highest quality roofing systems available today.
- Asphalt shingles have a blend of granules which are crushed rock or ceramic material and provide a barrier to protect the asphalt from the sun and weather elements.
- The granules also offer more fire protection than alternative roofing systems like wood shake.
- We use Owens Corning shingles which are rated for 120 mph winds, older style 3 tab shingles are only 60 to 80.
- Provides better insulation and protects from weather conditions, hail, snow, heat, ice, rain, and strong winds
- Provide a much longer life span than older style 3 tab or cedar shingles
- Stronger adhesives so much so we either had to cut them with our tear off shovels or a hook blade to separate them. There’s no way wind will cause you to lose one or two shingles.
- Architectural shingles provide a more dimensional look
- The color blends add extra contrast and aesthetic appeal to your home
- 50 percent thicker shingles more than older style 3 tab on architectural shingles
How do I know when my roof needs to be replaced?
Over time granule loss is something to look for when deciding it’s time to replace the roof. One way for a homeowner to check without getting on the roof is to inspect the gutters for granules after a heavy rain. If the gutter is full of granules it’s time to call a professional to inspect the roof and give a recommendation.
Simply check the downspouts on the ground for granules present in the splash block or on the ground so you don’t have to put a ladder up. Also look for color differences on the roof. The shingles will appear darker where granule loss is occurring.
