When it’s the right time for you to go in for a new roof, Seal Roofing consultants can provide you some answers to questions you will surely have. Questions like: What is the replacement cost for a shingle roof? Can I have my present roof repaired? What type of shingle roof is best for me?
There are many types of shingle roofs:
• Wood Roof Shingles
• Tile Roof Shingles
• Shake Roof Shingles
• Metal Roof Shingles
• Slate Roof Shingles
And the common Asphalt Shingles called 3-Tab, Architectural (Dimensional), and Luxury (Premium).
1. 3-tab shingles — also referred to as three-tab shingles.
2. Dimensional shingles — sometimes called architectural or laminate shingles.
3. Luxury shingles — occasionally called premium shingles.
What’s good about a 3-tab shingle? 3-tab shingles are very affordable and can last 20 years if provided proper maintenance.
What’s not so good about 3-tab shingles? There are fewer color options, they are thinner, so there is more potential for tiles blowing off and there is a shorter lifespan.
What’s there to like about dimensional shingles? Dimensional shingles are thick, extremely durable, and sturdy. These shingles have a multi-layered texture and can last 30 plus years.
What’s not so good with dimensional shingles? They are more expensive than your standard 3-tab shingle.
What’s so great about luxury asphalt shingles? Multi-Dimensional appearance; maximum durability; but most important to consider – they more affordable than slate or cedar alternatives.

Winter brings extra wear and tear to your roof. To help avoid costly damage, take a look at these roof maintenance measures for winter. It’s the middle of winter, temperatures are dropping then shooting up, then rain and snow. Your roof is subject to a lot of stress now. It is especially important to concentrate on roof maintenance during these cold-weather months. Between the snow and temperatures alternating between freezing and 60 degrees, this is when your roof will be subject to damage. Let’s explore some of the ways you can keep your roof in shape during the winter to make sure it holds up and does not get damaged.
1. Remove Snow Right Away
Snow on a rooftop will wreak havoc if it’s left to sit for too long.
Snow creates a heavyweight on your roof. This means that anywhere your roof is even slightly worn, or compromised you are at risk of major damage. If snow remains on your roof, it can create what’s known as an ice dam. When snow melts and then re-freezes, and melts again. Water on a roof is ok, but it’s the re-freezing that creates the issue. When temperatures drop below freezing (usually overnight), the melted ice hardens back up again. As a result, it creates a dam in or around your gutters, backing up any runoff precipitation. This will pop off shingles or even crack open a leakage. Remove all ice and snow from your roof as quickly and thoroughly as possible to keep it dry longer. As the conditions can make the surfaces slippery, it’s often wise to hire a roof maintenance company to come and take care of this simple maintenance for you.
2. Clean Your Gutters And Repair Your Flashing
When starting your wintertime roof maintenance routine, examine your flashing. Even if it was recently installed, and looks good, it can become warped or loosened – you might not notice until you are up close. If it’s loose, get it fixed as soon as possible. With misaligned flashing, snow and ice is allowed to more freely pool up on your roof. If too much excess moisture builds up, you’re looking at an interior leak. The same concept applies to your shingles. If any are beginning to peel up or chip, have them replaced double quick. Left unsecured, they also allow moisture to build and creep into your structure.
3. Your Gutters!
One of the first places that snow, and ice will gather? Your gutters. It’s real important to check the flow of your gutters regularly for any signs of ice dams. One rule of thumb is that if you see icicles hanging off of your roof, you may already have a problem with buildup. One problem is that if your gutters are filled with ice, they can tear off simply because of the weight of all that ice, unable to hold all that weight, they can separate from the roof structure. This creates significant structural damage and leaves you stuck with an inconvenient repair.
4. Quickly Repair Damage
While snow and ice are conditions that are a big concern, it is important to be mindful of other elements – winter storms, wind and storms in wintertime can beat up your roof. Don’t discount the incredible power of wind. If a major storm comes through your area, wind can be just as detrimental as any form of wet precipitation. Inspect your roof after a storm for any signs of wind damage and get a repair to any areas that may have become compromised. You’re specifically looking for missing, broken, or damaged shingles or other roofing materials. If left untreated, these vulnerable spots won’t just open your home up to leaks. They’ll also serve as harbingers for mold, and mildew. So, contact your roof maintenance professional to come patch or replace any areas that storms weaken.
5. Check Your Attic Ventilation
The proper functioning of your attic is cause and effect linked to the performance of your roof. If your attic is poorly ventilated or not well insulated, it can expose your roof more directly to temperature extremes from escaping heat, allowing problems like ice dams to form. When performing your roof maintenance inspection, go inside and make sure your attic has sufficient insulation and has solid routes for ventilation. Keeping the airflow consistent is key to keeping your roof as protected as possible.
6. Clear All Leaves And Tree Limbs
Before the winter storms really start rolling in, make sure your roof and all surrounding elements such as gutters, flashing, and downspouts, are free of debris. This can include pine needles, leaves, tree limbs, and other stuff that can sit on your roof’s surface. Take a rake or broom and clear as much as possible in the autumn months to keep your roof clear all winter long.
7. Hire The Professionals At Seal Roofing
While there are some roof maintenance tasks you can perform yourself, if you really want to get your home in quality shape for the winter, it’s best to hire a professional roofing company to take care of the major work. By letting the experts take on these important maintenance tasks, you’ll not only save time and ensure your safety, you’ll also have the peace of mind that everything is properly checked and repaired. That way, you can enjoy the winter without having to worry about the condition of your roof!
Winter weather is here. Wind, rain, ice, snow, hail—winter is tough on your roof. Everything from ice dams to gutter clogs can put your roof under stress and in need of an emergency roof repair. Here in Philadelphia, and in areas of winter temperature extremes, you should do some basic roof preparations and inspections as the temperatures drop. Here are the basic steps to avoid emergency roof repairs this winter.
By the way, it is incredibly dangerous to inspect or attempt to repair your roof on your own. Even seasoned pros experience hazards, especially in winter. Please call an experienced roofing company like Seal Roofing at (215) 533-4066 for your pre-winter inspection.
Inspect Your Gutters – Leaves! They clog your gutters, can become impacted hold moisture and can damage your roof. That’s because foliage gets inside the gutters and clogs a home’s exterior drainage system. Leaves and other debris prevent your gutters from draining water away from your roof. As winter sets in, these blocked gutters enable water to pool up on the roofing systems, resulting in a weakened roof. Over time, gutters come loose and hang lower. Unfastened pieces cause water to spill onto your roof and your walls. So, clean out those blockages and make sure all your gutters are tight and looking good.
Remove Ice Blocks – Heat from inside your house rises and melts the snow, and ice that has collected on your roof. The meltwater moves down then freezes up again as it hits the cooler section near the edge of your roof. The ice builds up and makes a dam that causes water to pool up. If not handled quickly, that water will weaken your roof and leak into your home. The best way to prevent ice dams from occurring is to make sure your roofing system runs through your gutter systems smoothly, look for trouble spots, and clear them.
Inspect Your Roof Structure – Roofs collect all kinds of debris. Excess water can collect in the shallows or valleys and create a roof emergency. Heavy debris can pile up on your roof, like tree limbs, putting a great deal of strain on the roof. While it’s best not to inspect the roof on your own, you should call the professionals at Seal Roofing so we can inspect your roof.
