Shingle Roofing

    There are various roofing options to choose from, but asphalt shingles have some of the best durability and waterproof capabilities. Our vast experience in the roofing industry allows us to help you pick out a perfect match for your home's needs.

    An asphalt shingle typically has a lifespan of around 20 years, depending on natural components such as climate and the thickness of the shingles.

    Your asphalt roof's longevity will depend on a few factors: installation, ventilation, and maintenance. Proper installation is an absolute must if you want to get the advertised life span out of your roof. Rest assured, when you choose BRH Enterprises for your shingle roof installation, we follow all manufacturer's installation guidelines. Not only does this help ensure you get as many years as possible out of your roof and that if there is a material defect, but your roof warranty will also be in place!

    Types of Shingle

    Three-tab or architectural? Three-tab shingles are typically a bit less expensive than architectural shingles. However, while they are more affordable upfront, they typically do not have the same life expectancy as an architectural shingle.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    When should you use an asphalt shingle underlayment?

    When you are installing an asphalt roof, it is essential to have a good base. The shingles will need a strong foundation that provides proper drainage and protection from the elements so they can last as long as possible. Our underlayment does just this by protecting your shingles against water damage caused by ice dams while also providing insulation for cool roofs when temperatures drop below freezing in the winter months.

    Can you apply new shingles over existing shingles?

    Yes. You can apply new things to your roof as long as the old ones are lying flat and in good condition; otherwise, you'll need to remove them first before installing a fresh layer of materials on top. Also, check with local codes to make sure that building regulations have been followed during re-roofing projects since this is also an opportunity for examining ventilation so vents will be sufficient enough, positioned correctly, and unobstructed at all times.

    Do you need to peel the release tape off the shingles?

    The plastic delivery film on the rear of shingles shouldn't be eliminated. The sole reason for this tape is to keep the shingles from staying together in the bundle. Once the shingle has been removed from its packaging and positioned correctly, it will seal with succeeding courses when warmed by heat exposure during the installation process.

    What offsets should be applied for laminated shingles?

    When it comes to laminated roofing shingles, BRH Enterprises recommends a 10-inch offset. Regardless of the type you choose, be sure to follow all application instructions printed on your package for the best results and desired aesthetics. All roofs should have at least an 8-inch minimum distance between one row and another.
