Shingle roofs come in a variety of styles, designs, and colors. There are 3-tab shingles and laminated shingles. Laminated shingles are typically referred to as dimensional or architectural shingles. Laminated shingles are a better-quality shingle than the 3 tab shingle. Shingle roofs are relatively easy to install and have average durability lasting 15 to 30 years.

Understanding the Five Critical Areas of Your Asphalt Roof.

In order to protect your home to the highest level, we exceed manufacturer’s requirements with our installation. Our commitment to excellence assures every area of your roof is protected against wind, water, and heat.

  • Decking
    Most contractors don’t inspect the decking prior to the installation of new shingles. A new roof is only as good as its foundation-which is the wood decking underneath. At PR&R, we will ensure that your shingles are properly attached to solid decking.

  • Underlayment
    Without proper installment of underlayment your decking will be exposed to moisture that can cause it to become soft and warp. This can cause shingles to deteriorate more quickly. We only use plastic caps to install underlayment.
  • Shingles
    At Phoenix Roofing and Remodeling, we strive to exceed manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure the longest life of your new roof. For example, we use six nails per shingle, rather than the industry practice of just four. We use starter strips to ensure seals at both the top and bottom, and we add shingle sealant around the eaves for the maximum wind protection possible.
  • Flashing
    Flashing is where most leaks occur. We apply a superior flashing sealant and use lead stacks for vent pipes instead of rubber, which increases the longevity of the stacks. Additionally, we paint visible flashing to match the roof color (which not only looks better, it helps protect and extends the life of the sealant).
  • Ventilation
    Improper ventilation of your attic will cause high temperatures and will void the manufacturer’s warranty. It can cause damage to your home’s structure, exterior paint, and even cause damage to your homes structure, exterior paint, and even cause your roof to lose half its life due to premature shingle damage. We analyze your current ventilation and add the specified number of heat-releasing vents required to maintain your manufacturer’s warranty.

What are the typical problems with shingle roofs?

  • Quality of the overall installation and shorter life span than other roofing systems.
  • Shingles on eaves and rakes not properly sealed or fastened.
  • Poor installation pattern and reveal of the shingle.
  • Nailing shingles to high or to low or what we call out of the strike zone.
  • Nails driven through the shingles or at angles causing the shingles not to seal properly.
  • Pipe jacks, headwalls, vents, chimneys and skylights not properly sealed and/or flashed.
  • Lack of attic ventilation causing pre-mature deterioration of the shingles.

What are the advantages of installing a new shingle roof?

  • Shingle roofs definitely have some advantages over other materials such as tile, slate, and metal. Shingle roofs can also offer energy savings.
  • Shingle roofs are cost efficient being the most affordable of the roofing systems.
  • Inexpensive labor due to lower skill level required to install shingle roofing.
  • Shingle roofs have a variety of styles, designs, and colors to choose from.
  • Shingles are flexible and durable making them easy to repair and install.

  • Shingles are lightweight and can be applied over almost any structure without modification.

How do roofing companies inspect shingle roofs?

  • Shingle roofs are easy to inspect except in high slope situations where proper safety gear and experience is required. Allow a Professional Roofing Contractor to inspect your roof.
  • Determine how many layers of shingles have been installed on the roof.
  • Inspect the overall condition of the shingles paying special attention to abnormal defects and granule loss.
  • Inspect the condition at and around all roofing penetrations.
  • Check various locations around the roof to determine if the shingles sealing strips are properly sealed.
  • If possible, always inspect the attic areas for leaks, water stains, and proper fastener lengths through decking.

How do you repair shingle roofs?

In most circumstances, shingle roofs are relatively easy to repair. You just need a few simple tools like a roofing pry bar, a hammer, roofing mastic, and roofing nails. The problem with replacing shingles is that a new shingle at times will not match well with your existing weathered shingles.

Repairing shingles may seem like a simple task, but without a certain level of expertise it can be too challenging. You may be tempted to repair your shingles on your own, but chances are you could make things worse unless if you have an extensive background in roofing work. If you’ve noticed some loose shingles, the responsible thing to do is to find and contact a trusted roofing company with someone at the helm with over 25 years of experience (like us).

If you’re not sure whether your roof needs shingle repair, look for these warning signs:

  • Cracked or Curled Shingles: Warping and other such damage indicates shingles are reaching the end of their lifespan, especially if you see widespread instances of this over the entire surface of the roof.
  • Dark or Wet Shingles: Dirt and moisture is being trapped, meaning that the shingles aren’t doing their job. Remember that since water runs downhill, the dampest shingles may not be the ones that are actually causing the issue.
  • Ceiling Stains: If your roof is allowing moisture into your home, it will often result in discoloration on walls and ceilings.
  • Attic Issues: Is rain getting into your attic? This is a surefire sign you need a roof replacement. Unusual streams of light coming through also signal that water will be able to enter through the same openings.
  • Granules in Gutters: Both asphalt and composite shingles shed particles that look like coarse, black sand as they wear out.
  • Wear and Tear Around Openings: Vents, chimneys, and other objects that stem out of the roof are often the first sources of deterioration.
  • High Energy Bills: Cool or warm air leaking out of the house through your roof can suddenly and dramatically increase your heating and cooling expenses.

How much does shingle roof installation cost?

There are various situations to consider when pricing a shingle roof. However, in most cases the average shingle roof will cost between $250.00 per square to $350.00 per square of roofing. A roofing square is 100 square feet or a 10′ x 10′ area which typically equals 3 bundles of shingles. Some higher end shingle roofs have 4 bundles to a square therefore resulting in higher costs.
