Leon Valley Asphalt Shingle Roofing Installation

Roof shingles are an essential part of most Leon Valley homes. They channel water off the roof, protecting your family from the elements. They are a popular roofing option; however, many homeowners still want to learn more about them. It’s common to wonder what they are, whether they’re a good roofing choice, and how to know when they need replacement. 

What Are Roof Shingles?

Shingles, flat or curved pieces of overlapping roofing material, vary in material, weight, durability, color, and style. 

There are three main types of shingles: 

  • 3-tab or Strip Shingles. These lay quite flat and can give the impression of slate. Their affordability and light weight make them a popular choice for homeowners.  
  • Dimensional Shingles. Sometimes known as “architectural shingles,” dimensional shingles are multi-layered, offering a three-dimensional look.  
  • Luxury Shingles. These long-lasting shingles are often made from a blend of materials, making them heavier and more durable than other shingle types. 

Shingles can be made from different materials, depending on the homeowner’s preferences. Before deciding on shingle type or material, find a trustworthy Leon Valley roofing contractor to help you navigate the many available options. 

Are Shingles Right for Your Roof?

Before contacting a shingle roofing contractor, it may be helpful to consider a few pros and cons of shingle roofing. While shingle roofs are a great investment (and a popular one), they have some drawbacks. 

Pros of Shingle Roofing
  • Shingles are lightweight and uniform, requiring less time and specialized training to install, which saves you money on labor. 
  • Shingles are fire-resistant, keeping you and your family safe.
  • Shingles come in several colors, materials, and styles to increase your home’s curb appeal. 
Cons of Shingle Roofing
  • Mildew can be a problem in rainy areas. However, an annual inspection (which is a good idea anyway) can ensure your roof stays clean of any mold or mildew. 
  • It’s not the most energy-efficient option. Some homeowners choose metal roofs due to their high energy efficiency. 

Replacing Shingled Roofs

Shingled roofs are durable and long-lasting. If well-maintained, they can often last up to 25-30 years. However, they may need to be repaired occasionally and eventually will need to be replaced. By staying on guard against signs of damage, homeowners can ensure they get the most years out of their shingle roof. 

However, if your roof is more than 15 years old and showing signs of damage, it may be time to replace it. Important signs of damage to watch for include sagging, water damage, moss growing on the roof, and patches of missing shingles. If you notice any of these signs, contact a Leon Valley shingle roofing contractor to help you assess your options.

I just had my roof replaced by Rhino Roofers and I am beyond happy with the job they did! I had a leak in my roof that caused my ceiling to collapse, and their professionalism and hard work helped me through this massive home repair. Matt Lawson came and inspected my roof and gave me great recommendations, and he remained in touch with me throughout the entire replacement process, answering my text messages at all hours for all my questions and concerns. His availability and professionalism made this big project much less stressful, and I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate him and the whole team. I would recommend Rhino Roofers to anyone!

We have been remodeling our entire house, and if you are doing the same, you know how difficult it is to work with contractors. You don't know what you're getting, some technicians don't have the best social skills, and you're always worried that they're telling you some gobbledygook to get you to spend more money. Of all the different renovations we've done--plumbing, electric, etc.--we have never felt in safer hands than with Rhino Roofers.The turnaround time was quick. Once we settled on a roof color and style (there are many) we had a 1.5 week lead time before they were going to come and install the roof. On roofing day, the crew was at the house at a prompt 7AM. The men worked like a NASCAR pit crew and had tarps out to catch all the asphalt crumbling off of our old roof. I have never seen roofers do this before but it was much appreciated to keep asphalt out of our grass and sidewalk. The old roof was off by noon and the new roof was on by 3PM. They didn't even take a full day to do this job!The roof looks perfect. Not a shingle looks out of place. There is an attention to detail that makes our roof satisfying to look at every time I pull into the driveway.We are in love with our new roof and the ease of this process. I highly recommend Rhino Roofers to anyone!

Came out same day and throughly inspected my roof. Mr. Holland was a true pro and made the process of understanding insurance claims easy for me to understand. Most importantly he understood the business and made me confident in his product. They are highly rated for a reason and I can back that. And although this has no effect on my rating, they do have some sharp looking work trucks! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Brandon came out a few times, even being way out in Hondo and quite the drive for him. He inspected my roof, came out with the first insurance adjuster (the adjuster was super unprofessional but Brandon remained cool and calm and professional the whole time). Brandon fought my insurance company for me and got a new adjuster to come out for another inspection and got the full roof replacement he knew I needed. He is super knowledgeable and professional. He’s kept me in the loop with the whole process and has made sure I’m happy with the results. They always upgrade your shingles to a better product. I never felt deceived and they’re very upfront about what all you’re getting. I highly recommend Rhino Roofers!

Jonah and Gus from Rhino Roofers are the best!! They worked with our insurance company and we were able to apply for financing through them for 0% the first year to make up the difference of our deductible. This massive roof was started and completed in just 9 hours. They added a much better shingle and also a mold resistant backing paper. They also added an upgraded ridge vent for ventilation and drip edge that we didn’t have. Crew was extremely professional and very clean! All the nails and old shingles were cleaned up and double checked in grass and driveway.I highly recommend you call and ask for Jonah or Gus!
