Asphalt shingles are one of the most common materials for residential and commercial properties. Their versatility, affordability and aesthetic appeal make them a popular choice for homeowners and business owners alike. Asphalt roofs are also fire resistant, adding an additional level of protection to your property. In addition, asphalt shingles are more energy-efficient than other options and recent improvements have made them more durable against high winds. Over the last several decades, wind warranties have more than doubled, going from a wind rating of 60 MPH to 130 MPH.

Asphalt Roof Cost
The cost of installing an asphalt shingle roof varies based on several factors, including pitch, overhangs, and waste footage. In order to get an accurate estimate for your project, you will need a roofing team to take exact measurements of your property. When you install a new asphalt roof or new asphalt shingles, you can expect them to last from 15 to 30 years. However, homes in warmer climates need roofing replacement sooner than those in cooler climates. It is a good rule of thumb to have your asphalt roof inspected after 10 years.

Asphalt Roof Installation
Our asphalt roofing systems are installed with 1 ¼ inch coil nails that are required by code. There are two main types of shingles: 3-Tab shingles and Architectural shingles. Typically, 3 Tab shingles are more affordable, but are less aesthetically pleasing and have a shorter life span. These shingle types are a great option for someone who is selling or doesn’t plan on living in their house for very long. Architectural shingles have a random offset, which gives them a cedar shake dimensional look. They come in a wide range of contrasting colors and have better wind warranties. This shingle type is a better option for people who plan on living in their homes long term. It is important when selecting the shingles for your home to make sure you “match the neighborhood.” Observing what other people on your street are doing may be a good way to help you decide which shingle to choose.

Asphalt Roof Maintenance
Even a durable asphalt shingle roofing is subject to the elements and weather conditions. Routine maintenance such as regular roof inspections and cleaning is important for keeping your asphalt roof in good condition. These steps will help you identify and address any potential problems before they turn into a costly, full-scale roof replacement.
Asphalt Roof Repair
Roof damage after a hail storm, heavy winds, or a tornado should be addressed as soon as possible to avoid unseen leaks and water damage in your home. Our team of expert roofers is fully trained in the repair of asphalt roof systems. We can also provide routine inspections to ensure that your asphalt roof is in great working condition and to provide any preventative maintenance.
Asphalt Roof Replacement
Determining whether your asphalt shingle roofing needs to be repaired or replaced altogether can be challenging. Discoloration, as well as curled, cracked or blistering shingles, are all red flags that indicate severe damage to your roof. Other signs are harder to spot, such as granule loss over time. A properly installed asphalt shingle roof can last up to 30 years. The roofing experts at LOA Construction can determine if damage exists and how extensive it truly is. If a replacement is necessary, we can help you make an informed decision on how to proceed.
