Asphalt Shingles

An Economical Residential Roofing Application

Asphalt shingles are a popular choice for many property owners mainly due to the initial lower costs.  Historically, choosing asphalt shingles meant that you would be replacing your roof every 10-15 years.  But today there are many lifetime asphalt shingle options including those with reflective, cool properties.

Value vs. Price

There is a difference between Ledegar Roofing and other roofing companies.  We will never cut corners give you an inferior product or shoddy workmanship.  Ledegar always covers all of the details to ensure the longest life of your roof possible, giving you the most value for your investment.

When replacing asphalt shingles, or any roofing system, it is important to inspect the ventilation and insulation. If these two components are overlooked, your newly shingled roof can prematurely deteriorate. Also, it could void the manufacturer's warranty all together and lead to expensive leaks. A ventilation calculation is used to measure the amount of airflow required for your roof to have the longest life possible and is a step many contractors leave out.

Replacing your shingles because of recent hail damage? There is a Class 4 hail-rated shingle option available which may be approved by your insurance company for a discount on your premium if installed on your roof.

Unsightly Black Streaks On Your Roof?

Black streaks are often mistaken for dirt, soot or fungus but are actually algae build up.  And, unfortunately, even some metal shingles can develop these black streaks.  Although all shingles have a 10-year anti-algae warranty, and manufacturers consider this a shingle failure and will replace them, it would be best to avoid this hassle.

Ledegar Roofing installs shingles that offer protection against algae growth, including those with ceramic coated granules imbedded for algae stain resistance.

There are other roofing materials beyond shingles that are more durable and longer lasting. All residential roofs protected by asphalt composite shingles are eligible for a 30-year, 40-year, 50-year, or lifetime warranty.

Many homeowners think a roof is just a roof; do your research to find that this is just not the case. Your roof is a large investment and arguably the most important part of your home because it protects everything and everyone inside.  Contact us to learn more
