Asphalt Shingle Roofing Phoenix -- We are your roofing experts

What is Asphalt Roofing?

Although very popular and widely used, asphalt roofing is still somewhat mysterious for homeowners. Most people don’t know much about it and very few of them had an opportunity to handle and install asphalt shingles. Therefore, it might be difficult to understand how these work and decide to install them on the roof. For that reason, we took time to compose a guide that would discuss everything there is to know about asphalt roofing. Let’s start right away with materials that make asphalt shingles. 

Organic Asphalt Shingles

These are some of the oldest asphalt roofing tiles made in the past. They are composed of asphalt and paper coating, which makes them very flexible and easy to install. These materials make organic shingles resistant to cold weather and tears. The heavy and thick organic shingles are very resistant to strong winds and changes in temperatures. Even after inevitable damage that comes over time, these can hide imperfections and look as good as new. The only thing to keep in mind is that organic shingles don’t offer superior fire protection. 

Fiberglass Asphalt Shingles

Fiberglass shingles, on the other hand, provide excellent protection against fire and water. They require a small amount of asphalt for the coating to make the roof fully waterproof and extremely durable. Also, these shingles provide high UV protection, so you don’t have to worry about the harmful sun rays burning a hole in your roof. 

Both of these types are made in the same way – what differs are the materials used for the construction. Here’s a brief overview of the layers included in all asphalt shingles and the construction process:

  • The top layer includes granules or a granite-like coating made of basaltic deposits. This makes the surface of the shingles super durable and resistant to deterioration from water and sun. 
  • The next layer is asphalt coating. This one determines the weight and the overall efficiency of the roofing because asphalt provides the best protection against water and sun. For that reason, some shingles have even two layers of asphalt for maximum protection. 
  • The base, the mat, or the middle of each shingle is made of an organic or fiberglass material. It holds all of the other layers together and determines the flexibility of shingles. 
  • Lastly, shingles come with adhesive tabs and nailing strips for proper installation. 

Types of Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles differ depending on the material used for the construction as well as the overall design. Along with picking organic or fiberglass shingles, you also get to choose between these models: 

  • 3-tab asphalt shingles
  • laminate shingles
  • architectural shingles
  • ridges and crest shingles
  • starter strip shingles

Each of these models is designed for a specific purpose and has different features, mainly thickness, durability, and function. Therefore, when changing the roofing and choosing a particular asphalt roofing, make sure to pick the type and model that works best for your application. Think about whether you need more protection against wind, water, sun, or all three. Consider the durability of each of these models as well as the installation price. Then you’ll be able to make the best decision for protecting your home. 

Benefits of Asphalt Roofing

Asphalt roofing provides superior protection for your home and everything inside, but it also has some extra things to offer. We listed the main benefits of installing asphalt shingles on your roof in the following section.

Energy Efficient and Environmentally Friendly

Homeowners will be pleased to know that asphalt roofing doesn't transfer heat from the outside of the home to the inside. The material doesn't absorb heat, which means it makes the indoor temperature more comfortable. Asphalt roofing is also favored because of the eco-friendly design. Every single construction material is recycled, which makes this option safer for the planet.

Asphalt Roofing Installation and Cost

The installation of roofing shingles is quite simple and straightforward, and most homeowners can do it all on their own. Still, those who have roofs with more than two slopes as well as valleys, ridges, and verges might want to consider calling a professional. An experienced company will set up a new roof quickly and easily, without even being hard on your pocketbook. It’s only essential to pick a reliable team that will get the job done in the best way possible. 

In case you need a roof replacement in the Phoenix Metro Area or anywhere else in the state of Arizona, Capstone Roofing is there for you. With many years of experience in the roofing industry and a highly trained team, the company delivers reliable service and outstanding results. Whether you need a roof installation, repair, maintenance, or an inspection, Capstone Roofing is one of the best choices in Arizona. 

When it comes to the asphalt shingles cost, things vary depending on the project, roofing type, and other similar factors. For example, most of the general repairs are inexpensive, but that will also depend on the included manufacturer’s warranty, terms of service, and more. The same applies to the installation. A contractor will determine the price for a square inch depending on the type of shingles, the roof type, and other factors that determine how much work is necessary. 

Asphalt Roofing Maintenance Tips

There are a couple of things you can do to increase the lifespan of your asphalt shingle roof. With a few maintenance tricks, you can ensure the durability of the roofing and make sure it will last for many years. 

  • Inspect your roof every two to three times a year to make sure there are no damages.
  • Check the attic as well and make sure there are no damages done to the insulation and the wood. Sometimes, humidity can cause serious problems in unventilated attics. 
  • Check the condition of the plastic cement under the flashings and make sure to glue all cracks on the shingles. You want to waterproof them and make sure they don’t crack even more. 

We also advise you to run all of these inspections before the winter or rainy season. That way, you can make sure all the shingles are in the best possible condition and won’t cause leaks or other problems. 

Common Questions about Asphalt Roofing

In the end, we answer some of the most commonly asked questions about asphalt shingle roofs to avoid any doubts you might have about this roofing type. 

Can I walk on the asphalt roof?

Just like any other roof type, an asphalt one might get damaged due to you walking on it. You might strip asphalt shingles with your shoes or create gaps that cause leaks in the roof. Therefore, we don’t recommend climbing and walking on the roof unless absolutely necessary. Even when you need to go up for maintenance, make sure to do it only once or twice a year. 

How long do asphalt shingles last?

As long as properly installed and maintained, an asphalt roof will last for about 20 years or more. It mostly depends on the weather conditions and the damages that asphalt shingles have to withstand over time. 

How to clean asphalt shingles?

If you noticed any streaks and residues on the asphalt shingles, humidity is one to blame. Most of the buildups appear because of the humidity, that is to say, mold and mildew. 

Now, you can use chemicals to remove all the residues on your roof, but we don’t recommend excessive or frequent use. Strong chemicals will damage the surface over time. You can always mix trisodium phosphate, bleach, and water to remove stains. Only make sure to do it occasionally and thoroughly rinse off the mixture with water.
