What You Need To Know About Asphalt Shingles:

Your Ohio roof is constantly exposed to the harsh abuse of mother nature.  Intense UV Light (the sun), Wind, Rain and Extreme Cold ALL work away at your roofing material at different times of the year (and in Ohio sometimes all in one day!)  slowly breaking down your roofing material over time.    If you’ve ever cleaned your gutters or had them cleaned and you noticed a large amount of what appears to be fine sand in your gutters then you know your roof material is actually breaking down.

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

While Asphalt Shingles were designed to be an extremely durable roofing material that can withstand the rigors of natures abuse for many, many years, they certainly do not last forever.  Thankfully though, Asphalt Shingles have come a long way and now modern asphalt shingle roofing systems last much longer and deliver much more value to the homeowner than they did 20 or 30 years ago.

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 and our Remodel-It! professional roofers can explain the differences and make some suggestions for your particular roof.

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.

It’s important that the roofing contractor you choose to install your Asphalt Shingle roof educates you on the products that are available and what will work best for your specific home. You want the right product for your roof! Not the most profitable product.
