Asphalt Shingles In Portland

Shingle roof

When you think asphalt shingles in Portland, think RJ Ramos Roofing. Roof shingles are a very common roofing material in the United States, but may deteriorate faster and need to repel more water than wall shingles.

Shingles are laid in courses usually with each shingle offset from its neighbors. The first course is the starter course and the last being a ridge course or ridge slates for a slate roof.

Asphalt shingles are almost always highly visible and so are an important aspect of a building’s aesthetics in patterns, textures and colors. We are the roofing specialists you can rely on to get the best possible service and results.

Are Asphalt Shingles Right for You?

All shingle roofs, including asphalt shingles, are installed from the bottom upward beginning with a starter course and the edge seams offset to avoid leaks. Many shingle installations benefit from being placed on top of an underlayment material such as asphalt felt paper to prevent leaks even from wind-driven rain and snow and ice dams in cold climates.

  • When it comes to projects like roof replacement, asphalt shingles are a great option. They are cost-effective and can last up to 20 years with proper maintenance and care. While other roofing type options may have a longer lifespan, the initial financial investment will be much higher.
  • These shingles are available in a variety of colors. That means it's easy to match the visual aesthetics of your home's exterior to shingles you have to choose from.
  • This type of roofing system is relatively easy for professionals to install which means you'll save money on installation. Plus, you'll be glad to know the job will be done quicker.
