Asphalt shingle roofing is by far the most common roofing material used in residential roofing today. Available in a wide range of prices, sizes and colors, it is the most affordable roofing material that’s appropriate for steep-sloped roofs.
Ease of installation and low material cost are the primary reasons for shingle roofing popularity. This relatively low-maintenance material, however, can be easily damaged by high wind, heat & mildew. Also, attic ventilation problems can reduce the shingles’ life so adequate ventilation is very important.
A typical asphalt shingle roof can be expected to last 15-30 years.

Shingle Roofing Replacement Process
- Protecting your property – We make sure that nothing gets damage during installation of a new roof. We move all items from around the house; we protect your siding and plants with tarps.
- Removing old roofing material – Old shingles have to be completely removed in order to inspect wood decking flashings and penetrations.
- Inspecting wood decking – Plywood or tongue groove decking needs to be inspected for potential water damage. Any damaged wood needs to be replaced before new shingles are applied.
Preparing the roof surface for shingles – Drip edge, ice & water shield on the bottoms and roofing felt needs to be installed on whole roof surface.
- Installing new shingles – New shingles needs to be installed using six nails per shingle. New pipe flanges, step flashing, flashing on a chimney and proper ventilation are installed
- Clean-up & final inspection – All debris needs to be picked up and disposed of lawfully. Nails need to be picked up using a magnetic tool. Finally, the company owner inspects the system to make sure it up to the highest industry standards.
