What Are Shingle Roofs?

Shingle roofs work like other tile roofs; they ensure no water accumulates and help the water to bounce over until it falls over the edge of the roof.
Shingles are sustainable in all types of weather conditions and require very little maintenance. Depending on the aesthetic requirements of the house or commercial premises, shingles are available in many different styles. Tile roofs have always been the popular choice in the steep slope roofing market, however, shingle roofing is a prevalent choice in the neighborhoods of Tucson and its surrounding areas.

Benefits of Shingle Roofs

There are many reasons why shingle roofs are popular for residential roofing projects. Shingles are popular roof materials, as they are aesthetically attractive and customizable to suit a home’s existing décor. They are available in a range of color palettes, styles, and textures. In fact, you can choose shingles that mimic the look of tile, slate, or cedar shakes. Shingles are quite affordable, making them a good choice for homeowners who want the look of higher-end roofing materials without the hefty price tag.
Other benefits of shingles include the following:
  • They are made of lightweight material that won’t damage the sunroof.
  • They offer excellent fire resistance, which is particularly important in the arid Southwest.
  • Shingles resist severe weather and high wind speeds, which is ideal in areas where strong storms can knock tree branches into homes.
  • Shingles are recyclable.
  • Shingles are highly flexible. Even if you have a home with complicated features like a Dutch gable, chimney, or skylight, shingles are flexible enough to protect these features.

Dimensional Shingles

Dimensional shingles, popularly known as laminated shingles, are asphalt shingles, but with a variation making them more interesting. Traditional asphalt shingles have three asphalt tabs spaced out in regular intervals, whereas dimensional shingles include two bonded layers of shingle material. Moreover, in laminated shingles, the random notches are taken out, exposing the bottom layer. This combination of different high and low tabs offers a three-dimensional look to the roof.
Aesthetically, the laminated shingles are more attractive, and at the same time, they offer better protection from hail and wind because of the double-bonded layer. They also offer a longer life.

Looking for Shingle Roof Replacement?

At Blue Mountain Roofing, we understand that affordability is a top priority for our customers. We’ll assess your roof to determine whether it needs a full replacement or whether you can get by with making just a few repairs. Generally, we recommend repairs when only a few shingles or a limited area has sustained damage. However, you may need a full shingle roof replacement if the following types of damage are widespread:
  • The edges of the shingles are curled up or the tabs are cupped.
  • The shingles have lost a great deal of granules and look “bald.”
  • The shingles have begun to crack.
  • The roof as a whole looks weathered and worn-out.
  • There are areas of algae or moss growth on the roof. This traps moisture in the area, leading to the potential for water damage inside the home.
In addition, the age of the roof can be a consideration. We typically recommend a roof replacement if the roof is nearing the end of its lifespan. For shingle roofs, this is about 20 years.
