Quick question: What’s flexible, weather-resistant, cost-effective, and song-worthy? Give up? It’s asphalt, the true Rockledge hero of roofing materials. According to the National Roofing Contractors Association, asphalt is the most popular choice for commercial roof shingle replacement due to its durability and ease of installation.

Now that we’ve established the superiority of asphalt shingles, let’s ‘shingle out’ a step-by-step guide showing how to deal with the replacement process:

6: Inspection Post Replacement – Ensure everything is as it should be, and breathe a sigh of relief at a job well done.

The Shake-down on Shingle Damage

Damage to roof shingles is mostly caused by unpredictable weather conditions, which, let’s face it, are about as reliable as a chocolate kettle. However, the indication of a damaged roof isn’t always as obvious as water leaking on your head. Early signs can include curling or clawing shingles, bald shingles, or even shingle debris clogging your gutter.
