When it comes to roof repair or replacement, you know that installing a new roof does more than change the general visual design of a home; it also keeps its residents safe and secure. But this is only effective through a series of roof components that work together to form a complete system and help increase the roof’s effectiveness. If you’re not sure of which material to use for your roof renovation project, then you can’t go wrong with asphalt shingles.
The Proven Reliability of Asphalt Shingles
With today’s technology, manufacturers across the country are producing sturdier asphalt roofing systems. This makes them even more appealing to use, whether you have a residential sloped roof or a commercial flat roof. Asphalt shingles are now stronger and more flexible, thanks to the latest polymers added to its composition. They go beyond their principal purpose as a reliable water-shedding surface material to create the visual aesthetic that defines your home.
The Key Components of Asphalt Shingle Roofing
Asphalt shingle roofing is highly relied upon for its beauty, durability and affordability. Whether you need a residential sloped roof repair or a commercial flat roof repair, our cost-effective asphalt roofing systems provide multilayer protection and require only minimal maintenance. Here are the key components that make this possible:
Underlayment – Underlayment provides a layer of protection between the wood deck and the shingles. It’s an important layer of sheathing that also acts as a secondary water barrier apart from the asphalt shingles.
Starter strip products – Starter strips are actually critical for proper roofing installation, providing the first row of sealant needed to help prevent shingle blow-offs and water penetration.
Ventilation – Along with the underlayment, we also make sure to install a proper, well-balanced ventilation system in the attic. This allows heat and moisture to escape, as well as prevents ice damming. It also stops premature shingle deterioration by keeping attic temperatures closer to outdoor temperatures.
Ice and water barriers – These barriers protect the vulnerable parts of your roof like valleys and other roof protrusions. Without these, ice could easily accumulate during the winter months and damage your roofing structure.
