Traditionally asphalt shingles are synonymous with homes throughout North America, yet more and more New Zealand home owners are seeing the advantages and striking looks that can be achieved with shingle roofing.
Now discerning property owners in Auckland can choose to roof their homes in shingle roofing,and select from an extensive range of colours and styles designed to meet our ever changing climate.
Shingle Roofing Types
You can select from either organic shingles which are manufactured from waste paper that is saturated with ashphalt to make it waterproof, or choose fibreglass shingles which are constructed with a base layer of glass fibre and resin and then coated with ashphalt.
Some shingle brands are also chemically treated to resist against algae and other such things that may cause damage to your roof.
Our roofers can repair a number of issues for you including...
Split Shingles: If you see splitting in a reasonable number of your roofing shingles then it's a sign that your roof is in need of urgent repair. Water can ingress and damage the under wood lining, causing major damage.
Shingle Curling: Is caused by shingles wearing thin and loosing their elasticity and literally curling allowing water again to damage your roof lining.
Blistering and Buckling: With poor installation of ashphalt shingles, moisture can get in and this causes blistering and ultimately further damage.
Damaged Flashings: One of the most common forms of damage to rooves is caused by damaged flashing. Through the constant climate changing, animals and even people working on the roof can cause flashing damage. Common spots are chimney flashings, pipes, around gutters, joins, at a roof apex or peak.
