Asphalt Shingle Roof Replacement and Repair in Greater Washington DC

Asphalt shingles are durable, cost-effective, resistant to fire, easy to service and provide homeowners a wide range of color schemes, textures and styles from which to choose. These favorable characteristics make asphalt shingles one of the top choices for residential roofing in Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland.
Quick facts about asphalt shingle roofing
  • Asphalt shingles are manufactured with a fiberglass mat core, or an organic felt material. Both shingle varieties are saturated with asphalt to make them waterproof and fire-resistant.
  • Ceramic granules are applied to the asphalt to help prevent and hinder damage and drying caused by exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays.
Tips on repairing and installing asphalt shingle roofs
  • In the climate of Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland, asphalt shingles installed by a reputable and experienced contractor typically have a lifespan of 20 to 30 years, depending largely upon proper attic ventilation, weather conditions, regular upkeep and preventive maintenance, such as treatments to hinder algae growth.
  • While some options of roofing materials are more durable and offer a longer lifespan (e.g. metal roofs last up to 50 years, and slate roofs last more than a century), the initial installation investment and potential maintenance expenses for these types of roofing materials tend to be substantially higher than for asphalt shingles.

Quality Assurance

A home is a major investment, and the preservation of that investment is largely dependent upon the quality of the roofing materials and the quality and experience of the contractor entrusted with installation, preventive maintenance and repairs.
