Shingle Installation

Umbrella Roof specializes in shingle installation for both residential and commercial buildings. With 15+ years in the industry and over 4,000 completed jobs, we’ve seen it all!

The Delaware Valley consists of hundreds of thousands of single family and twin homes. Many of which were build 40+ years ago. The roofing systems generally consisted of the old “3-tab” shingles. The technology in the new architectural shingles used today is superior in every way in terms of the material, but additionally the component such as underlayments and ridge ventilation are far superior to their decades old counterparts.

 

At Umbrella Roof we understand the materials and issues from the past, and how that can and should translate into the newer more advanced systems used today. It takes skilled evalutation, the use of quality materials, and highly skilled technicians in order to install a shingle roof system that will last for decades without fail.

Umbrella Roofing is the poster business for customer service. Ed provided a thorough and comprehensive review of the issues with our roof including some root causes of the issues. He provided pictures and took the time to give explanations and education of basic roof installation. Although his estimate for the repairs was more than another estimate, the repairs were more comprehensive to resolve the immediate issues and position us to have the roof last. Umbrella Roofing also set us up to have the regular maintenance done to ensure the roof lasts and meets the performance expectations. Our roof was supposed to be a brand new roof so we did not except to have leaks or have a major repair less than 2 years after having the new roof was installed. Umbrella's entire team is great! Jessica in the front office actually answers the phone and returns phone calls. If there are questions she gets answers. The Project Manager Melvin is also great at communicating with customers and making sure the job gets done and done right. The installation team was efficient and did great work. Of course Ed came to ensure everything was completed and completed correctly in the scope of work. He showed pictures of the completed work. The great thing about Umbrella Roofing is they provide a cost estimate that documents all the work they will perform and answer any and all questions. You also get before and after pictures as well as pictures of the work as it was being done. I highly recommend Umbrella Roofing without reservation! Their prices are very reasonable and their customer service is awesome!

Ed & Melvin are amazing. They are fast and efficient. We’ve had other roofers come by and none were able to do the job correctly like Umbrella roofing. So glad we have a company like them to rely on for any of our roofing needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Shingle roofs are roofing systems made up of individual overlapping elements called shingles. These shingles are typically flat and rectangular and are layered from the bottom edge of the roof with each layer overlapping the one below it.

The most common materials for shingles include asphalt, wood, metal, slate, and composite materials. Asphalt shingles are the most popular choice for residential roofing due to their affordability and durability.

The lifespan of a shingle roof depends on the material used. Asphalt shingles, for example, can last 20 to 30 years, while other materials like slate or metal can have a longer lifespan of 50 years or more.

Several factors can impact the lifespan of a shingle roof, including the quality of the materials, installation, climate, maintenance, and exposure to elements such as sunlight and severe weather.

Regular maintenance is essential to prolong the life of a shingle roof. This includes periodic inspections for damage, cleaning gutters, removing debris, and addressing any issues promptly. Professional inspections are also recommended every few years.

In some cases, it is possible to install new shingles over existing ones, but it’s generally not recommended. Removing the old shingles allows for a proper inspection of the roof deck and ensures a better quality and longer-lasting installation.

Signs of potential issues include missing or damaged shingles, leaks in the attic or ceiling, granule loss, and visible wear. If you notice any of these signs, it’s advisable to consult with a roofing professional for a thorough inspection.

Yes, there are three main types of asphalt shingles: 3-tab shingles, architectural shingles (also known as dimensional or laminated shingles), and luxury shingles. Architectural shingles are more popular due to their durability and aesthetic appeal.
