Asphalt shingle placement is one of the most popular residential roofing solutions.
Although shingles are not complicated compared to other coverings, some accurate measurements and professional equipment will ensure your roofing placement is done in a proper manner, providing years of protection and a nice look to your home.
Our team will professionally perform asphalt shingle installation on any sorts of flat or sloped roof structures. Normally, the process of roof installation consists of several stages:
Preparing sheathing surfaces.
We will do whatever it takes to provide protection to shingles (installing a waterproof membrane layer, a breathable underlayment, metal flashings, drip edge protection, etc.), and examine the wood surface to eliminate all kinds of imperfections, such as rotten fragments, parts affected by insects, etc. At this stage, we prepare the chimney area and seal the visible cracks around it.
To ensure protection against leaks, we install 3-tab shingles so that they overlap each other by at least five inches. Although asphalt shingle manufacturers require at least 4 nails per shingle to provide wind protection, we normally suggest that our Toronto clients increase this number for better wind safety and extended placement warranties. Such an approach allows our clients to significantly reduce the maintenance costs.
The leftovers, and minor debris and rubbish, are thoroughly picked up, sorted, and disposed accordingly to Alberta’s waste management requirements.
