Types of Asphalt Shingle Roofing
 
 
3 Tab Shingles

This shingle type involves a 1-ft. tall X 3-ft. wide shingle slab which is cut with slots at one end to create three tabs, each about 5-in. tall X 12-in. wide. This type of shingle was the product of choice for many years.
Laminated Shingles

Often referred to as Architectural shingles due to their three dimensional appearance have gained rapid popularity. The overall cost is more than 3 Tab shingles but the appearance is more attractive.
 
 
 
 
 
Frequently Asked Questions:
 
 
Is Asphalt Shingle roofing expensive?

It’s actually probably the most cost effective roofing option in that the initial upfront costs are lower than other roofing options.
 
 
 
How do I know when it’s time to replace my shingled roof?

A typical Asphalt Shingle roof becomes a candidate for replacing after approximately 20 years although it depends on the type of shingles that were installed and the weathering factors that impact the shingles themselves. It is inevitable that they will need replaced at some point and you don’t want to procrastinate when it comes to ensuring that your roofing system is operating effectively and that it is impermeable to weather. Pay special attention to weathered, cracked, or curling shingles or areas where staining or suspected water penetrations seem prevalent. It is also a good idea to inspect your attic for signs of leaking or water staining which would indicate a failed roofing system.
 
 
 
Can shingles be applied directly to the existing roof without removing the old shingles?

Depending on your specific local ordinances it often is permissible to apply new Asphalt Shingles directly over the existing shingles when the proper conditions exist. Typically, this practice is limited to only one additional layer and the existing shingles and sheathing must be able to accommodate the overlaying of new shingles. New shingles cannot be applied over existing roofing that contains soft spots, warped areas, rotten or structurally compromised areas. Furthermore, shingles that are brittle, hardened, or have excessive curling should be removed first before installing new shingles. If done properly and under the proper conditions, this technique could save purchasers a significant amount of money in the form of reduced labor cost and also significantly less dumping and hauling fees.
