Just as the look of your roof has a significant impact on curb appeal, shingle roof installation makes a mark on overall home value. Roofing basics is a concept an amateur might not understand, or rather, might ignore while they’re haphazardly attaching the hardware store’s budget-bin shingles to the roof of your home.

Professionals have the skills, the tools and the quality commercial-grade supplies to make your next roofing job worthwhile. Here’s how the roofing experts at TekRoof get the shingle roof installation job done right:

Roof Shingle Types

Asphalt roofing shingles are available in two primary forms: three-tab and dimensional.

  • Three-tab asphalt shingles are a linear, traditional style that is rapidly declining in popularity and gradually disappearing altogether.
  • Dimensional roofing shingles are preferred by today’s discerning homeowners. These laminated shingles come in a wide variety of colors, styles and profiles, each designed to fit a range of looks and budgets.

High-end dimensional roofing shingles can mimic the designer look of natural slate tiles or genuine cedar shakes without their associated expense or maintenance worries. In areas where local fire codes prohibit the use of wood shakes, these Class A, Fire- Resistance-rated dimensional shingles can help you achieve the look of real wood.

Shingle Roof Installation for Maximum Protection and Durability

It doesn’t matter what kind of shingles you put on your roof if the installer doesn’t understand shingle layout and know how to use them. Small mistakes lead to big consequences. Shingles that aren’t securely attached to your roof will shift during storms. Shingles damaged during shingle roof installation allow rain to penetrate your home.

We understand why property owners look for bargains when having a new roof installed. It’s an expensive job. In the aftermath of a storm, if you might have serious damage to your roof, the allure of a fast and cheap roofing service might seem too good to pass up.

This is how consumers fall for fly-by-night roofing repair services. When hail and other severe storms rip through an area, groups prey on homeowners and perform substandard work — or never show up to finish the job.

At TekRoof, we have several experienced teams working to meet your needs for roof and shingle security as quickly as possible. We can help you secure your repair site until our roofers can complete the job. More importantly, once we install your shingles, you can rest assured the efforts and investment will last a long time.

And if it doesn’t? You know where to find us. We have a generous warranty program and professional insurance designed to cover any accidents that might occur while we’re on your property.

Maintaining Shingles Over Their Life-of-Use

Most homeowners today move long before their newly-installed shingles need replacing. GAP series and other top-performance asphalt shingle brands can last 30 years or more. Install a slate roof, and there’s a good chance it will outlive your grandchildren!

At TekRoof, we’ll ensure you get the longest life out of your shingles by putting a comprehensive maintenance plan in place. Yearly inspections can detect small problems that could lead to early roof replacement. Affordable fixes prevent big bills down the road and help you get the most out of your high-quality roofing materials.
