Snow guards are rooftop devices that allow snow and ice to drop off in small amounts or allow snow and ice to melt completely before falling to the ground. The installation of snow guards prevents the sudden release of snow and ice from a roof, which is known as a roof avalanche. A roof avalanche can cause damage to people, pets, cars, landscaping, gutters, plumbing vents, lower roof areas, skylights and anything else that might be in the immediate area below your roof. Snow guards have been around for hundreds of years and have historically been used on slate, tile and metal roofs. The first snow guards were actually limbs that were attached to the eaves of a roof, with rocks placed atop the limbs, to hold the snow back.[/vc_column_text][vc_button2 title=”Discover S-5 SnowGuards” style=”square_outlined” color=”white” size=”md” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.s-5.com%2Fsnow%2Findex.cfm||target:%20_blank”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Asphalt Shingle Roofing Systems

Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material used today. They are manufactured as strip shingles, interlocking shingles, and large individual shingles in a variety of colors and weights.

They measure approximately 12 inches wide and 36 inches long, and can have as many as five cutouts along the long dimension. Cutouts separate the shingle’s tabs, which are exposed to the weather and give the roof the appearance of being made up of a larger number of individual units. Strip shingles also are manufactured without cutouts to produce a much different effect. The three-tab shingle is the most common strip shingle.

Most shingles are available with strips or dabs of a factory-applied, self-sealing adhesive, which is a thermoplastic material that is activated by the sun’s heat after the shingle is installed. Exposure to the sun’s heat bonds each shingle securely to the one below for greater wind resistance. This self-sealing action takes place within a few days during the spring, summer, and fall. In winter, the self-sealing action varies depending on geographical location, roof slope, and the orientation of the house on the site.

Strip-shingle tabs can be trimmed or offset to obtain straight or staggered butt lines, respectively. They also can be embossed or built up from a number of laminations of base material to give a three dimensional effect. Each of these shingle characteristics—staggered butt lines, embossing, and laminations—can be combined in various ways to create textures on the finished roof surface that resemble wood, slate, or tile.

In recent years, the laminated two-ply asphalt shingle has become every popular. Because two layers of shingles are laminated together, there is more weight and better protection than with a one-ply, three tab shingle. Most three-tab shingles have a 15- to 20-year limited warranty compared to 25 to 30 years for laminated shingles. That is 5 to 15years more service. Now you can get a Lifetime transferable warranty.

In addition, fiberglass laminated shingles carry a Class A fire rating from Underwriters’ Laboratories, Inc. (UL). Single-ply asphalt shingles usually have Class C fire ratings. Fiberglass also offers greater resistance to warping, rotting, blistering, and curling. It contains more coating asphalt to better protect the structure from weather elements. Interlocking shingles provide resistance to strong winds. The shingles come in various shapes and with different locking devices that provide a mechanical interlock. Large individual shingles are generally rectangular or hexagonal in shape.

Most manufacturers certify asphalt shingles to wind-performance test standards on a continual basis through independent third-party testing laboratories. In this standard test, which has been used for many years, shingles are applied to a roof deck according to the manufacturer’s specifications, sealed under controlled conditions, and then subjected to ongoing wind conditions for 2 hours. The asphalt shingles are monitored continuously throughout the test.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”6461″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_outline” border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”400×300″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Cedar Shake Roofing”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”6560″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_outline” border_color=”grey” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”400×437″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Cedar Shake Shingle Roofing

If you’ve thought about moving beyond asphalt roofing to something more distinctive, consider the benefits of a cedar shake roof:

  • Wood Shake Roofs provide character. The warmth and elegance of a natural cedar shake or shingle roof goes beyond enhancing the appearance of your home. It reflects pride of ownership and, most important, it shows an intelligent sense of value.
  • Wood Shake Roofs are eco-friendly. Made from a natural, renewable resource, cedar roofing can be purchased from companies with sustainable harvesting techniques.
  • Wood Shake Roofs insulate well. With up to two-times the insulating value of asphalt shingles, the cellular structure of cedar shake roofs make them and energy-saving addition to your home during summer and winter months.
  • Wood Shake Roofs are durable. Because they are able to tolerate harsh winds, hail and even earthquakes, cedar shake roofs are a resilient roofing option for nearly every climate. No other roofing and siding product offers nature’s own formula for unrivaled weather-defying protection, insulation and structural strength.
  • Wood Shake Roofs are versatile. Due to their timeless look, cedar shake roofs compliment many architectural styles, including mountain cabins, Victorian abodes, Cape Cod homes and Tudor or Gothic-style residences.
  • Wood Shake Roofs are adaptable. It can also be treated with either pressure impregnated preservatives to enhance its natural resistance to decay or with pressure impregnated fire retardant treatment to aid in protecting your home against fire.
