Repair my shingle roof

When I needed to find someone to repair my shingle roof, I initially considered placing a newspaper want ad for someone who could replace my missing roof shingles. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but mostly because I wanted to avoid unwelcome calls from fly-by-night home repair people. Instead, I went online to see what might turn up if I Googled the keywords, repair my shingle roof. I got several hits for one of the Charlotte roofing companies that earned rave reviews on Angie’s List, Advanced Roofing and Exteriors.

About asphalt shingles

Because I did not really know whether I should repair my shingle roof or have the entire roof replaced with new shingles, I did some another online search. I already knew that asphalt shingles are the leading choice for residential roofing in the US because of their durability and low cost of application. What I did not know is that the traditional grey asphalt shingles on my roof are not the only types of asphalt shingles that are available on the market today. They come in a broad array of colors, shapes, and textures, and an enormous range of styles. Properly installed asphalt shingles need very little regular upkeep, and are easily repaired if damaged. Asphalt shingles do a great job protecting our homes from wind, water, ice and snow, and are equally efficient in both high and low temperatures. Asphalt shingles carry Ratings of A, B, and C fire resistance. An A rating designates the highest protection. In addition, many asphalt shingles are awarded a high wind resistance rating.

Repairing, or replacing, asphalt shingles?

I also learned that asphalt shingles generally last between 20 and 30 years. Since my single roof was not new when I bought my Concord NC house, I realized I might very well have to do more than simply repair my shingle roof. I may need a whole new roof! I followed the on-line suggestions for determining if I might need a new roof. I walked around the house with binoculars and inspected for cracked, curled or missing shingles, and looked for little piles of mineral granules from the shingles on the ground. There were some cracks, some curls, but from what I could tell without climbing up onto the roof myself, which I did not want to do, I did not think there were any missing shingles. I decided to call a reliable roofer, Advanced Roofing and Exteriors, to come and check out my roof.
