AÂ high-performance roof takes more than just shingles. The performance of any roof depends on an entire system ofÂ accessory products working and performing together, including ventilation, hip and ridge shingles, underlayment, and attic insulation.
Roofing manufacturers will not warrant their products unless they are applied as part of a complete roof system-
DECK PROTECTION: Felt paperÂ is applied directly to your roof decking, for optimal moisture protection.
QUALITY SHINGLES: We only install the top lines from the top brand name shingle companies.
PROPER VENTILATION: It is important to ensure your attic is properly ventilated. Proper ventilation allows for continuous airflow in attics. It is estimated that 9 out of 10 homes do not have adequate ventilation. In Arizona when attics can reach 160Â° or more, moving hot air can have a significant impact on how hard your air conditioning unit has to work while also extending the life of your roof. In fact most Shingle warranties state that failure to have adequate ventilation could in fact void the manufacturerâ€™s warranty.
RIDGE CAPPING: This is the final seal on your roof that protects it at the ridge and hips; also to give it that final high definition appeal. Working in unison, these elements can provide maximum performance and efficiency. Shingles by themselves may look nice, but without considering the whole package, you could be looking at major roof or attic problems down the road.
ASPHALT COMPOSITION (FIBERGLASS) SHINGLES: Composition shingles have a fiberglass reinforcing mat at the center. This mat is coated with asphalt and mineral fillers. The fillers adhere to the fiberglass and the asphalt surrounds the structure, making it waterproof. Its top surface is embedded with a layer of ceramic granules. Asphalt Composition shingles offer multi-level protection and are durable, reliable and easy to maintain throughout the life of the roof. They all come with a Class â€œAâ€ fire rating and have warranties available in 20 yr., 25 yr., 30 yr., 40 yr., 50 yr., and lifetime. They can be separated into three categories: 3-Tab, Laminates/Dimensional and Designer shingles.
