One reason asphalt roof shingles are so well liked is because they are known for their durability: They are resistant to sunlight and weather, perform well on steep-sloped roofs, require minimal maintenance (if any) and are one of the most reasonably priced roofing options. Roofers find asphalt roof shingles easy to work with because they are easily cut, fastened and fit; in addition, they work well with many different flashing and edging products.
Don’t want to be limited to shingles that are just the old gray or black? No problem. Today’s asphalt roof shingles offer a plethora of aesthetic options, coming in a variety of colors and textures including resembling wood or slate.
There are two ways to work with asphalt roof shingles: Roofers can remove all existing shingles and start from scratch, or they can put a second layer of asphalt roof shingles over the existing layer. Our experts can determine which process is best suited for your building.
With Pennsylvania’s sometimes harsh weather, you want to make sure your asphalt roof shingles are put on the correct way. Rain or melting snow can penetrate the area around the nails, especially if the shingles were not installed properly, and lead to expensive damage. Therefore, it is important to choose a roofer who can lay asphalt roof shingles in such a way as to prevent damage to your home or building; if moisture gets under the roof, it can harm or even destroy your walls, flooring and attic insulation. Our experienced team can layer over or replace your roof in a timely, professional manner, while at the same time making sure your structure is protected.
