Creating Elegant Roofs With Laminated Shingles

As a prominent part of your home's exterior, your roofing system can greatly influence curb appeal. It can either accentuate your home's style or give it an entirely different look. When aiming for a classy yet affordable design, consider choosing laminated shingles for your next roof replacement.

Creating Elegant Roofs with Laminated Shingles

What Are Laminated Shingles?

Laminated shingles are usually referred to as architectural, composite, or dimensional because of their construction and appearance. Unlike three-tab shingles, they are made from multiple layers of fiberglass to offer greater depth and dimension. Manufacturers then apply mineral granules on top for added texture. Roofers recommend this due to their exclusive appeal minus the high costs. They can emulate the authentic look of wood shake, tile, and slate, giving homeowners a variety of options.

What Are Their Advantages?

The added thickness on laminated shingles equates to better durability since they have more surface area for granules and special coatings. This enables them to resist severe conditions, from wildfires to strong winds. This durability feature is one of the main reasons roofing companies like us highly recommend them for replacement projects. Some manufacturers like GAF offer laminated shingles with higher reflectivity. Their Timberline® Cool Series® shingles can help you save up to 15% on your cooling costs.

Laminated shingles are also easier to install as compared with traditional ones. They are lightweight, so they don't require any structural modifications for support. Furthermore, they don't have cutouts, so they can easily blend in any roof types. Available in an array of colors, profiles, and textures, they can complement any architectural style. They can last up to 50 years with proper installation.

Because of their superior performance and efficiency, manufacturers offer solid warranties ranging from 20 to 50 years. At West Side Roofing, we are among the few roofing contractors who carry the GAF Master Elite™ and CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster™ designations. Working with us gives you access to the brands' industry-leading warranties that cover material defects and workmanship errors. This ensures you peace of mind that your roof will perform as expected for years to come.

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof One of the first things we look at when we go to repair or replace any roof is to take a look at the attic. The attic is the foundation of the roof, and if it has any issues, the longevity of your roof is at stake. The Importance of Proper Attic Ventilation Attic ventilation is a crucial component of any roofing job. Without adequate ventilation, your roof is at risk for mold, and no one wants mold in their house. The first step when we meet with the homeowner is to go up in their attic space and determine whether the situation is agreeable or if it needs some work. While in the attic, we also look at the condition of the wood. If the wood itself is in poor condition, we may have to make some repairs there as well. For example, a rotting attic ceiling is not a good foundation for any roof, new or old. It can be hard for some homeowners to hearthat they have mold in their attic, but it is important to know if it is there because it is unhealthy

Leaking Chimney and Other Chimney Issues

Do You Have aLeaking Chimney orAnother Chimney Issue? Is a Leaking Chimney a Roofing Issue? One of the most frequent calls that we get here at West Side Roofing is about chimneys. It is not uncommon that over time a chimney will begin to leak, especially brick chimneys. Because a chimney is part of the roof, people will assume that we are equipped to fix that leak. Though this leakage is usually attributed to a masonry issue, we can still help identify and inform you about why this happens. We speak the masonry language, but we are not equipped to make those repairs. What is Chimney Flashing? However, sometimes there is a chimney issue that we can help you with, and that is with the flashing along the bottom of the chimney where it meets the roof. In the first example in the video, you can see that there were some pretty large cracks in the actual brick of the chimney which we recommended the owner have a mason come out and fix that. But their flashing was also coming apart as
