Shingles Roof

Shingles

Today’s innovative asphalt shingle products, composite shingles, tiles, and metal roofing come in a wide variety of grades and colors. By far the most common type of roof covering used in roofing Simpsonville is the highly reliable 3-tab asphalt shingle. CertainTeed and GAF are two of many excellent quality roofing brands, and Arnold Roofing specializes in both. These brands offer upgraded versions of their standard shingles, generally known as architectural shingles. They’re usually heavier, last longer, stand up to severe weather and wind very well, and come with a longer warranty.

CertainTeed

CertainTeed roofing products are very popular with South Carolina homeowners. The brand has become widely recommended due to its impact and fire resistance ratings. CertainTeed’s shingles boast some of the best results for your house in wind and torrential rainfall protection. CertainTeed products also have a wide variety of styles and options for their customers.

Ridge Cap

Ridge cap shingles are like regular shingles in that they use the same material and offer the same color and texture. The difference is that ridge cap shingles are uniquely designed to cover the ridges of the roof–the apex at which roof slopes meet at the top of the roof structure and at its opposing slopes. As the “leading edges” of a roof system, ridges are high-stress areas that require protection.

Underlayment

The roof underlayment is laid out atop the roof deck, between the shingles and the roof sheathing, or roof deck, typically either plywood or OSB (oriented strand board). The underlayment is a highly effective moisture barrier installed directly on the roof deck and provides a secondary layer of protection from the elements.

Decking

The roof deck is made up of wooden boards (plywood or OSB) and are essentially part of a house’s frame which spans over deck joists. The roof decking is what your shingles and other roofing components are attached to via special roofing nails. There are two types of wood roof decking: plank decking and sheet decking.

Ice & Water Shield

The Carolinas are far enough north for homes and buildings to benefit from an ice and water shield, including roofing Simpsonville SC.

An ice & water shield helps protect the decking of a roof system and interior living and working spaces. The shield protects your property from damage caused by ice dams that may occur due to fluctuating conditions over the winter months.  From December – February it’s not uncommon for temperatures in Simpsonville to drop below freezing, so an ice & water shield can certainly offer protection that really pays off!

The Process of Replacing a Roof
