Below is a short education on shingle roofing systems:
Asphalt shingle roofs have been around for many years. They have always been, as they still are, one of the most cost effective steep slope roofing systems available. Shingles are made by a multitude of companies and all are about the same in quality, though each will all argue theirs is better, of course. They are all required to comply with ASTM standards, so the shingle quality between manufacturers, for the most part is the same. Most all manufacturers produce the same styles of shingles, three tab, Dimensional or Architectural, and the high end laminates sometimes called “designer shingles”. Asphalt shingles now come in many colors and styles that can compliment the look and “curb appeal” of any home.
Since the shingles themselves are the same in quality, and the style is really a matter of personal preference. The next and maybe most important factor in designing your roof system is the installation. There are many important factors in the installation of your shingle roof system, all very important for life of the roof, the warranty from the manufacturers and the durability of your roof in our harsh Arizona monsoon storms. The details of the installation and the training of your contractors installers are of upmost importance.
- Shingle selection
- Underlayment selection
- Nails vs. Staples
- Length of fasteners
- Number of fasteners
- Proper flashing of penetrations
When installed properly and with care, a shingle roof should last at least as long as their warranty (usually 20-30 years). However, if your roofing contractor does not take the time to do a proper install, a homeowner may be stuck with the headaches of a roof that is falling apart, and leaks that spring up all over the roof. Shingles can be ripped off in storms, exposed nails can ruin the integrity of the shingle, and can lead to leaks. Canyon State Roofing goes well above and beyond the minimum code requirements when installing a new roof. We only work with 30 # felt, and we use SIX (6) nails per shingle. Each and every shingle is inspected after installation to ensure your new roof will last for decades.
