Madison Roofing Tip of the Month: A Simple Guide to Asphalt Shingles

If you are looking to replace your roof, there are a number of great options out there to choose from in terms of the materials you can choose to re-roof your home. One of the best options is the use of asphalt, as there are many benefits from using this material. Here is a quick little guide about asphalt shingles.

Why Asphalt Shingles?

Let's start with one of the most obvious questions. Because there are a number of different shingle options available, it makes sense to understand why asphalt is a good option. There are several reasons. It starts with the fact that they are cheaper than many of the other options and are extremely easy to install. Plus, there is no challenge in you damaging them should you go out to do an inspection on your roof. These shingles are made to handle people walking on them without them breaking.

Why Not Asphalt?

Of course, there are challenges with asphalt as well. It starts with the fact that they are prone to blowing away or getting damaged during heavy winds. Because of how lightweight they are it doesn't take much for them to get damaged. This is why they are not the perfect option in areas where strong winds are known to occur on a regular basis.

What Are Asphalt Shingles Made Of?

There are three different materials that these kinds of shingles can be made off: fiberglass, asphalt, and mineral granules. On some occasions, you may find that sealant strips are used. Asphalt is made from petroleum products, while fiberglass is made from the same material that is used to create your insulation. The mineral composition comes from mineral granules that have been specially coated.

What Do You Need to Install Asphalt Shingles?

While this article is not intended to teach you how to install asphalt shingles, understanding the kinds of materials you will need to create your roof using the shingles is a worthwhile part of this article. You will need such things as roofing paper, the shingles themselves, a rolled water barrier, drip edge, and ridge vents. You also need tools that will assist you in installing the materials.

Care and Maintenance

This is one of the aspects of having an asphalt shingle based roof that people really like. These kinds of roofs are extremely easy to maintain. For general cleaning, all you need to do is ensure that no debris or moss is building up on the shingles. These kinds of materials can cause damage or staining of the roof, so removing them right away is important.

You should inspect your asphalt roof at least twice a year. This should be done for sure in the spring and in the fall as the seasons are changing. You should also do a thorough inspection after a heavy storm.

For additional care, it is important that the attic of your home has the proper amount of ventilation. This will prevent moisture and heat from building up underneath the shingles, which can cause loosening of the shingles or damage.

Also, properly clean your gutters so that water does not pool onto the roof. During the winter knock down any ice buildup around the edges of your home and on gutters.

These are a quality type of shingles, that would look perfect for your home. Truly a good option for any house.
