ASPHALT SHINGLE ROOFING
It's likely that you have shingles on your home's roof, because shingles provide many benefits to homeowners. Technology has come a long way, the architectural shingles manufactured today are more durably made, and last longer than ever before. At Silver's Contracting, we can help you learn more about your home's roofing options. We'll even let you know which roofing materials will withstand different types of weather. No matter what type of roof you install, your underlayment’s and how they are installed alone will dictate how long your roofing system will stay water tight. Improperly installed roofs, may look nice initially, but an inferior application can lead to costly damage and frustration. Cutting corners on a roof can easily become a very costly mistake. At Silver's Contracting, we don't cut corners. Your trust and investment is important to us. The roofing contractors team of Silver's Contracting recommend asphalt shingles on your roof for a number of reasons. Asphalt shingles are a great choice for the following reasons, including but not limited to:
- Cost Effective
- Endless Color Options
- Long Lifespan
- Wind, Fire and Water-Resistant
ROOF REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT
- How old is my roof? We are highly trained to spot signs of your roof's age and can give you a reliable estimate on the age of your roof, if you don't already know.
- Is my roof perperly ventilated? Proper ventilation is crucial to your roofing system's longevity. When improperly ventilated or your attic space isn't insulated correctly, your roofing system is prone to breaking down at a much more rapid rate than intended.
- What environmental concerns could be degrading my roof's lifespan? Landscaping around a home can augment the look of the property. However, growth too close or hanging over a roof, can cause substantial damage and degradation to your roof. This usually happens slowly and goes unnoticed until too late. If your roof (and siding) don't receive ample sunlight to keep things dry, the resultant shade promotes the growth of mold and mildew, which is unsightly and can incur additional maintenance costs and premature failure. Word to the wise: plant the shade for your yard far enough away from your home. We can advise courses of action to mitigate these concerns from becoming bigger problems.
- Shingles are cracked/curled. A normal sign of wear and tear, but it could also be a manufacturer defect that results in the early declination of the shingles' integrity.
- Finding shingle granules in your gutters. Another sign of normal wear & tear.
- Moss or Algae Growing on Your Roof. Moss can push under your shingles forcing them up, which can lead to thin spots and holes in your roof which eventually result in leaks.
- Leaks and Water Damage. If water has made its way inside your home, there is a good possibility that your roof and roof decking has been compromised and need to be replaced before it causes further damage to the interior of your home.
- Age of Roof. Roofs usually only have about a 20- year life span, and sometimes less. Roofs installed prior to the mid to late 1990's are now coming to the end of their life - which may be why you're reading this right now. If you know your roof is approaching that age, it's time to start planning for a roof replacement. The good news is that roofs properly installed today use materials and underlayment’s designed to offer a 30-year life cycle or more. The underlayment’s and shingles produced today are far superior to the traditional 3-tabbed shingles and early vintage architectural style.
