Asphalt Shingles are the most popular and common roofing option in North America. Rhode Island Slate Roofing provides the RI community with repair and installation work with all Asphalt Shingle Roofs. Depending where you live, the asphalt shingle roofs perform the best in relatively consistent weather.
Dramatic temperature changes (Thermal shock) within an extremely short period of time has been known to damage these types of shingles. Within most of Rhode Island or Mass, you can’t go wrong with this option if you are looking for a basic, solid roof.
The typical life span is around 30 years, however some of the more expensive shingles claim to last 50 years. After stripping the roof, we inspect all the sheathing and make sure there is no rot. After any rotted wood is changed and everything is nailed to the rafters properly, we install the ice and water, paper, drip edge, and starter shingles.
The preperation on shingle roofs is the most important. A lot of people install the drip edge first and then the ice and water. When ice dams build up in the gutter, the ice works it's way underneath the drip edge and rots away the bottom of the roof as well as the fascia.
