Top Asphalt Shingle Roof Projects by Sacramento Roofers

Asphalt shingle roofing projects make up a big slice of the jobs our Sacramento roofing team does. As one of the most commonly used roofing materials on the market, asphalt shingle is fairly easy to install. Because of its simplicity, this is also why it has become the specialty of less than reputable roofers.

Aside from repairs, there are generally two types of roofing projects: the roof-over and the tear off:


A roof-over involves setting up a new layer of asphalt roof shingles over an existing roof. This method only works if you have an asphalt shingle roof to begin with. Although this type of job is fairly simple, local laws limit the amount of asphalt shingle roofing to two layers, at which point, you need to have your roofing changed.

Roof-overs are recommended for quick roof changes, or for homeowners who want to put an additional layer of protection on their asphalt shingle roof.



In contrast to a roof-over, a tear-off or roofing replacement task involves removing the entire roof structure and replacing it with a new one. Despite the fact that tear-offs take more time and effort, it lets your Sacramento Roofers spot any type of deterioration under your roof. Tear offs are often done on older homes and houses with two layers of asphalt shingles.
