Shingle Roofing Systems
The Most Common Permanent Solution for Your Roof in Mesa, AZ
- Needs Very Little Maintenance Over the Lifetime of the Roof
- If Shingles Have Been Blown Off During a Storm, Replace Them ASAP
Shingle roofs are probably so common because of reliability and low cost. But there are a few more things that you should know about your shingle roof!
There are different types of shingle roofs, mainly traditional three-tab and dimensional. Three-tab shingles refer to the shingle having only one layer and no dimension, while dimensional shingles have layers (sometimes multiple layers) and give a richer look. Most dimensional shingles come with a lifetime warranty (to be honest, they will last from 20-25 years in Arizona). The only maintenance that will eventually need to be done is sealing around roof penetrations. Your roof should be cleaned before and after monsoon season, especially if you have trees of any kind where debris can cause blockages in the way water drains. When replacing missing or broken shingles, the color match will be very close but a 100% match is not very likely. The lighter the color of the shingle, the more energy efficient it will be.
We are licensed, bonded, and insured professionals, and when installing new shingles, we first tear off and dispose of the old roof down to the substrate. We then install new underlayment, new drip edge, new roof penetrations, starter shingles and then we install the new shingles that have been picked out by the homeowner. With Arizona Roofing Systems, in most cases a shingle roof shouldn’t take longer than 3 to 5 days to complete.
