What You Need To Know About Asphalt Shingles

Your roof is constantly exposed to the harsh abuse of mother nature.  Sunlight, Wind, Water and Ice ALL work to slowly breakdown your roofing material over time.    If you’ve ever cleaned your gutters and noticed a large amount of what appears to be sand in your gutters then your roof material is actually breaking down.

As these little granules slowly start to separate themselves from the roofing material they leave it exposed to the elements which decreases the performance and lifespan of your roof considerably.

While Asphalt Shingles were designed to be an extremely durable roofing material that can withstand these rigors for many, many years, they do not last forever.  Thankfully though, Asphalt Shingles have come a long way and now roofing systems last much longer and deliver much more value to the homeowner.

Asphalt Shingles are available in a wide variety of price ranges depending on the color, style and the actual composition of the material.  It should be obvious that some Asphalt Shingle Roofing systems are much better than others.

Types Of Asphalt Shingles We Install

  • Single Tab Shingles
  • 3 Tab Shingles
  • Designer Shingles

Asphalt Shingle Ratings – The ratings on Asphalt Shingles were formulated by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). Shingles with a Class 4 rating have more adhesive strips under the tabs which help them resist strong winds. Class 4 shingles also take six nails as opposed to four when fastening the material. The Underwriters Laboratory (UL) test determines durability from wind and hail impacts. A Shingle that can withstand 60 mile per hour winds for two straight hours will gain the UL certification.

Using The Right Roofing Equipment Protects Your Property

The Equipter Roofing MachineMany of our customers don’t realize just how heavy their roofing material is and when we tear your old roof off it needs to be taken off the roof.  Traditionally roofing contractors will pull up a big truck or drop off a large bin on your property.  As the roofers toss the old shingles and roofing materials off your roof they get it into your gardens, all over your lawn and landscape.  The last thing you need is to catch a roofing nail in your tire or even worse yours, a childs or a pets foot!

Paragon Exteriors invests in the right equipment for every job and for our residential roofing projects we’ll be bringing a piece of equipment to your home called the equipter.  This self propelled debris collection and dumping machine allows us to raise our dump bucket to the same level as your roof.  This makes it much faster and easier for our crews to remove your old roof without making a huge mess of your property.  We can get your roofing project done more efficiently with the easy removal and cleanup of your old roof.
