The Good and the Bad About Asphalt Shingle Roofs

Is your old roof giving problems? Or have you bought or built a new property and are excited about buying a brand new roof? Whatever your query, we can help.

Many homeowners in Vancouver prefer asphalt shingle roofs for their cost-effectiveness, sturdiness, and aesthetics. If you’re considering investing in a new asphalt roof, you may be interested to learn more about the features, pros, cons, and costs involved.

At ABC Roofing, we have years of experience installing, repairing, and maintaining asphalt, slate, tile, metal, and green roofs.

What Is an Asphalt Shingle Roof?

You may have often heard of asphalt shingle roofs, but what materials are they made of? Asphalt is the primary component of asphalt roofs, and they are built with overlapping shingles that protect your deck and roofing system. In addition to asphalt, they are also made of ceramic granules and fibreglass.

The ceramic granules give asphalt the signature colour and texture and protect the shingles from harmful UV rays. While asphalt shingles typically last for 20-25 years, the premium varieties can last between 30-40 years.

Premium quality asphalt shingles offer better impact resistance to storms, rains, and winds and improved visual appeal. They won’t break easily and don’t need to be replaced as often as the standard ones.

Once you give ABC Roofing a call, our knowledgeable Vancouver roofers help you select the most suitable roof for your needs.

Asphalt Shingle Roof Installation

Asphalt shingle roofs consist of many components such as:

  • Underlayment
  • Attic insulation
  • Roof decking
  • Starter shingles
  • Roof shingles
  • Water and ice barrier

The asphalt shingle roof prevents water, ice, and snow from entering the building and keeps its occupants safe. We start installing the asphalt shingles at the eaves and proceed to the roof. Each row of asphalt shingles overlaps the row below.

What Gives Asphalt Shingle Roofs an Edge Over Others?

The most significant appeal of asphalt shingle roofs is their durability and cost. They are more resistant to algae and mould than wood shakes. They do an efficient job of keeping out the weather elements and have a respectable lifespan, provided you get them regularly inspected.

You should hire a reputable roofing contractor in Vancouver to get your asphalt shingle roof checked for problems. Professionals are trained to look for issues that may elude homeowners. We’ll check the roofing material, underlayment, vents, and rubber seams to check for leaks, moisture, punctures, and tears.

Broken or curled shingles can be easily removed and replaced without taking away from the aesthetics of your property.
