Architectural Roofing Shingles

Architectural roofing shingles provide a stunning three-dimensional appearance. Some of the most attractive architectural roofing shingles simulate cedar wood shakes (such as CertainTeed’s Presidential Shake TL and Presidential Shake shingles). These shingles are quite thick with random slots similar to real shakes. Another unique architectural shingle design imitates the look of slate (such as CertainTeed’s Symphony Slate, Grand Manor, Centennial Slate or Carriage House shingles) without the weight issues that normally accompany those materials. These architectural roofing shingles do not require any additional roof support as slate would.

Advantages of Flat Roofing

Most roofs in the San Francisco bay area are flat or nearly flat with a slight pitch. Some that are completely flat and do not have a pitch due to settlement of the home, improper construction, or deflection of the rafters must have a roof system installed that will either correct the pitch or be able to withstand the effects of ponding water. In order to correct a roof structure that has standing (or ponding) water, a tapered insulation system can be installed. Sometimes, though, this is not possible due to penetrations or other structures on the roof. When this is the case, a roof system that is not adversely effected by standing water should be used. The problem is that most flat roof systems are made from asphalt products, which do not hold up under these situations.


Roof Repairs: When And Why To Undertake
Leaks, improper workmanship and weather-related conditions are three common reasons for roof repairs. Some of these repairs are obvious, while others can be less so. Do you need a roof repair for any of these reasons? Following is an overview of each, and the damage caused by leaving it unattended.
The Value of Roof Repair Specialist
The problems listed above are just a few of the things that can make roof repair necessary. Others included improperly designed roofs, leaking skylights, and use of faulty material during construction.
