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. Exterior Medics is proud to be among only 3% of roofing contractors to have achieved Master Elite Roofing Contractor status with GAF, the largest roofing manufacturer in North America, and we’re a DaVinci Masterpiece Contractor Program member.

Tom Green is wonderful. He is a true professional. He did a thorough inspection of my current roof and a ventilation issues I was having in my attic. He gave wonderful advice and a great solution, plus recommended a product that I like very much. Exterior Medics has been used by a family member for many years and they always provided exceptional work.
Roofers were clean, professional, knowledgeable, and courteous to existing neighbors. Project manager kept me informed every step of the way! I highly recommend!

We had a great experience with Exterior Medics. They replaced our roof which was 30+ years old along with gutters. The price was very reasonable (much better than many other companies that gave us quotes) and Ron was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process.

I am employed with an HOA Management company, and we work very closely with Exterior Medics for a number of our communities' needs. Melanie has excellent customer service skills, she is very professional, and always quick to respond to emails or phone calls. I would definitely recommend this company if you care about quality service and workmanship!

Crew was on time; excellent work; cleaned up properly after the work was completed. Mr. Ernesto Lopez was the supervisor and he was extremely responsive. He listened to our concerns and made certain that all of the work was done to a high standard and met our approval with a final review. Office staff also extremely responsive. Would highly recommend this company.
