Asphalt Roofing

Sloped / Shingled Asphalt Roofs

Some homeowners don't think about their asphalt roof until it's too late. While it's important that you protect your most valuable investment (your house), it is equally important to choose the right Halifax roofing company to do the job. Waiting too long to get your asphalt (sloped roof or shingled roof) roof placed can require extremely expensive repairs to your home. Some of the repairs could include drywall, insulation, rotten wood, mold, flooring, structural integrity of your home, and so much more. So, when choosing your Halifax roofing contractor, it is important to be very prudent.

Benefits of asphalt shingled roofs:

  • Embedded copper in granules prevent staining, moss and algae
  • UV protector in new shingle styles will outperform the old
  • Easy installation, making it a lot more cost effective
  • Several styles and unique colours to suit any taste
  • New fiberglass and asphalt shingles are more flexible
  • The tar/sealant strips on the new shingles are far superior compared to previous types
  • Shingles can be recycled once torn off
  • Steeper roofs are stronger and will last longer
  • Shingles can be walked on without causing damages
  • Can be installed all year long
  • 40-50 Year manufacturers' warranties, 10 year transferable workmanship warranty

There is more to your roof than just installing the shingle products. One of the most neglected and most important aspects is proper ventilation and insulation. You and your home produce heat and humidity that has to go somewhere. It drifts into your attic and through the insulation. If you don't have proper amounts of insulation you're hurting your energy bill and your roof.

How much ventilation do you need?

If your (asphalt) roof doesn't have enough ventilation, it obviously won't be able to cycle air with a high moisture content out quick enough; this will undoubtedly result in condensation affecting your asphalt roofing fixture. When humid air meets a cold surface, it condenses. Your asphalt roofing structure requires sufficient ventilation to keep up with large amounts of humidity released into the attic.

A general rule of thumb (for asphalt roofing, shingled roofing, and sloped roofing systems) for proper amounts of ventilation is 60% intake / 40% exhaust. Using a mathematical formula, we have deduced that 300 square feet of attic space per 1 square foot of ventilation is a good balance. We understand the importance of this phenomenon, so we do an attic inspection during our free estimates. This sets us apart as a superior Halifax roofing company.
