But let us be the first to say, re-doing a roof is dangerous work. Let's just point out the obvious, it's high off the ground and you're almost always at an awkward angle. Add in the moisture from the PNW and that can be cause for disaster, especially if your roof has any moss growing on it, which can become very slippery. But aside from the dangerous aspect,...

Benefits To Using Asphalt Shingles

One of the greatest inventions of the 20th century is the Asphalt Shingle. You read that right; the Asphalt Shingle. It vastly improved it's predecessor and is used by nearly every family in the United States. Before the asphalt shingle, most roofs consisted of wood shakes. While this is still a sought after product, it has quickly become second best to the asphalt shingle in quality, safety and durability. One of the main problems with wood shingles is that wood is flammable. As with older...

That, plus higher levels of humidity means more moss and algae growth than drier climates, which can accumulate on roofs and shorten the life span of composite asphalt shingles. As moss grows, it’s root system settles under the...
