Asphalt Shingle Roofing

Your Guide To

Asphalt Shingle Roofing

Unless a roofing company is specialized in a particular material, they have worked with composite roofing materials. The majority of roofing jobs using these materials are residential, so we are no exception in their use. Here are a few you might be familiar with:

The most common and least expensive of these is the asphalt shingle, which covers the majority of residential roofs today. With an average life span of 5-10 years, it is no wonder that there is a market for roofing with this material.

Metal roofs are another composite roofing material that has long been popular in the commercial market. However, it is gaining popularity in several residential markets, with a lifespan of 30-50 years. Metal roofs stand up better to severe weather and keep moisture out. It is more expensive, and wisdom dictates that the owner inspect the roof periodically to ensure that the seams and fastener points are sealed.

Finally, we have clay tile, the Spanish style you see everywhere in California, and many Latin countries. With a lifespan of 100 years, you can understand why the missions used them on the roofs. They are not without its quirks, however. Here are a couple.

If you walk on a clay tile roof, you risk cracking or breaking them, which can lead to leaks and other problems. Efflorescence is a slight softening of the color of the tiles that naturally occurs, due to a chemical reaction common in cement products. Otherwise, if one can afford them, they are worth it.

So don’t just look for any roofer in Jersey City. If you need a roof replacement, need your flat roof fixed or replaced, or you need someone skilled with composite materials, please call Abstract Roofing & Construction today.
