Asphalt – the most common roofing material, asphalt roofing shingles are easy to install, lightweight, and strong. They are the ideal choice for replacing damaged or old asphalt roofing shingles or repairing a damaged roof to make it look as good as new. For the environmentally-conscious homeowner, asphalt shingles provide a green alternative to other materials such as slate, cedar, or wood that may be more environmentally damaging than traditional roofing materials. Since asphalt shingles are flexible, they offer the ease of flexibility in which to lay the roofing shingles, and the strength to handle the weight of the shingles.
If you live in an area where rain or snow is common, and if you live in a location that often experiences winds of 40 mph or more, asphalt roofing shingles are an excellent choice. Asphalt roofing shingles are typically made from expanded polystyrene foam, which provides the same kind of strength as ceramic tile, but at a fraction of the cost. The best part about asphalt shingles is their ability to weather longer than other roofing materials.
An asphalt roofing repair or replacement can range from simple patching to repairing a roofing shingle with new ones that are lighter in weight and less expensive.
Asphalt roofing shingles are available in several different styles, colors, and textures, and so can be made to match any type of home, whether contemporary, traditional, country or Victorian. With all the options available, you’re sure to find asphalt shingles that are perfect for your home. When it comes to asphalt shingles, one day they could be a great deal, the next day they could be a total waste.
Asphalt shingles will not hold up over time, and asphalt shingle roofing repair should not be taken lightly. If a seal or repair has already been done, there’s no need to replace it because it was a one-day job. The sealant will eventually wear off and your roof will be susceptible to leaking.
Over the years, if you’ve been doing your own roofing repairs, it’s more likely that a leak will occur. You don’t want to wait until you have a big problem before repairing your roof, because it could cost you more money. One of the most common ways to repair your flat roof is to use a hot air hammer.
This method of roofing repair works well on smaller roofs. The hot air is used to melt the damaged shingles and pull them off the roofing. Before you begin this process, you’ll need to have a bucket in order to catch any falling shingles. Once you’ve replaced the shingles, it’s time to put the bucket in the trash, because hot air hammers can cause injury if they come into contact with the skin, which can happen if you’re going at it alone.
On larger roofs, such as slate roofs, there are a few different ways to repair or replace the shingles. For slate roof repair, a nail gun or stapler might be a good option. These tools will allow you to nail holes or punctures without damaging the shingles. Other tools that might work include hot irons, scissors, and even crescent wrenches.
Just remember that repairing or replacing shingles on a slate roof replacement is much different than replacing shingles on a flat roof repair.
