Asphalt Shingle Roof Replacement Service in CanterburyAsphalt Shingle Roofing Service in Canterbury

Welcome to Residential Roofing and Construction in Canterbury, where you can explore the exceptional advantages of choosing asphalt shingles for your residential roofing needs. Asphalt Shingle are a popular roofing material made from a base of fiberglass or organic mat, coated with asphalt and mineral granules. They are widely used in residential roofing due to their durability, affordability, and ease of installation. These shingles offer a robust defense ensuring your home remains safe and dry in the face of heavy rain, strong winds, and occasional hailstorms. With minimal maintenance requirements, energy-efficient options, and a growing focus on environmental sustainability, asphalt shingles stand as a comprehensive and eco-conscious roofing solution for your property. Asphalt shingles come in various types, primarily categorized into three main classes: three-tab shingles, architectural shingles, and luxury/designer shingles.

Our Process

Step 1 - Assessment of the Roof:

Before installing or replacing asphalt shingles, a thorough examination is essential. We inspect for any signs of sags, rot, or damage to the underlying wood and check for potential leaks by searching for water stains inside or beneath the roof. Following this, we ensure proper roof ventilation to prevent moisture, aiding in the longevity of the new shingles. Attention is also given to the flashings around areas like chimneys and vents, confirming a secure seal to prevent water infiltration. Taking the time to do a careful roof check ensures that the new asphalt shingles go on a solid and trouble-free foundation, keeping your home protected for the long haul.

Step 2 - Inspection of the Membrane:

We commence the assessment with a detailed examination of the membrane's overall condition, checking for wear, punctures, and any visible damage. Special consideration is given to areas prone to potential issues, such as roof penetrations, edges, and transitions. Also the sustainability of the membrane, including its recyclability and eco-friendly features, contributing to a more environmentally conscious roofing solution. Damaged membranes are replaced to enhance the longevity of the roofing system. These inspections and proactive maintenance efforts contribute to identifying and addressing issues promptly, promoting the reliability of the residential roofing membrane.

Step 3 - Removal of Debris:

Following a comprehensive roof inspection, our skilled team meticulously clears away debris, including leaves, branches, and other accumulated materials. This proactive debris removal is crucial for both new installations and replacement projects. If left unattended, accumulated leaves and debris can trap moisture, creating an environment conducive to moss and algae growth, which could compromise the visual appeal of the roofing material. Our debris removal service not only promptly addresses immediate concerns but also plays a role in nurturing the long-term health of the roof. This distinct service is designed to uphold industry standards, ensuring the efficiency and sustainability of the roofing system over time.

Step 4 - Fixing Cracks & Replacement:

Dealing with cracks and replacing impaired roofing materials is a careful procedure that starts with a comprehensive examination to evaluate the magnitude of the damage. When it comes to minor cracks, our team employs sealants or roofing cement to fill the gaps, ensuring a uniform and level surface. The replacement of new roofing materials follows, with a focus on secure placement, proper alignment, and appropriate fastening to uphold the roof's structural integrity. Applying sealant around the repaired or replaced section establishes a water-resistant seal, effectively preventing potential leaks. This approach ensures that our process is distinct and authentic, adhering to industry standards for efficient and reliable roofing solutions.
