Asphalt shingle roofs are the most common type of roofing in the United States; they account for around 50% of all roofs nationwide. Yet despite their widespread use, asphalt shingles have a few aspects to consider that homeowners might be interested in before making any decisions on whether to repair or replace them.
Signs of Shingle Damage on Your Roof
If you notice that any of your shingles are missing or broken, call Chase Roofing right away! There are several signs that your shingled roofing is in disrepair – it’s best to call the professionals and have them assess the potential damages to your roof.
Missing or Cracked Shingles
Missing or cracked shingles are a tell-tale sign of roofing damage. This is because the sun eventually causes the asphalt on the shingles to break down and turn brittle. Once this happens, water can penetrate your home and cause further damage down the line.
It’s essential to take care of damaged or missing shingles as soon as possible, either by repairing them or replacing them altogether. It’s also not a bad idea to consult with an expert in shingle repair or replacement before making any decisions about the fix.
Loss of Granules
Asphalt shingles can slowly lose their granules as they age. These granules are what give the shingles their color and protection qualities. Over time, the shingles will start to look gray and develop hairline cracks. The problem with losing these granules is that it can affect how well your roof protects you and your home.
Roof Leaks and Signs of Water Damage
Signs of water damage can include water stains on the roof, soggy carpets, and mold build-up in your attic. When you notice any of these signs, it’s essential to take care of them as soon as possible to prevent any further damage from occurring.
Another problem that often plagues homeowners with asphalt shingle roofs is water damage on their ceilings. This can happen when there are missing or cracked shingles in the roof which means that it may be time to get them repaired or replaced altogether.

Should You Repair or Fully Replace Your Shingle Roof?
Most homeowners choose to have a professional roofing company repair the shingle damage. This is often the best solution if the damage is limited to a specific area of the roof. But, the decision comes down to several factors, such as the condition of your roofing, the extent of the damage, insurance coverage, and if an inspector might recommend a complete replacement. Below are a few things to consider when deciding to replace the entire roof or just to repair the damaged shingles.
Condition of Your Roofing
If your shingled roofing has gone well past its lifespan and you experience leaks or any further damages, it may be time to replace your roof entirely. However, if your shingles are relatively new and the damages are minor, there is a good chance that a roofing professional can simply fix the shingles that are damaged.
Partial or Small Damages Can Be Repaired
If you notice anything out of the ordinary with your roof, it's best to have it checked because minor or partial damages can be repaired. Storms or natural disasters can cause minor damages, and they're often easy enough to fix, especially for our experienced contractors at Chase Roofing.
Significant Water Damage Usually Needs a Full Roof Replacement
If you notice significant water damage to your roof and inside your home, it's more than likely time to replace your roofing altogether. Often, minor and fixable damages that go unnoticed on your roofing can grow into much larger problems over time. Chase Roofing also provides routine maintenance programs that can save you money in the long run by fixing these smaller problems before they expand!
Have a Qualified Contractor Assess Your Roofing Damage
If you are not sure if your roofing damage requires the services of a qualified contractor, then having them assess the damage is a good idea. Our skilled contractors will be able to tell you whether or not the damages are repairable or could lead to structural problems. If the damages are worse than what can be fixed with minor repairs, then we may recommend that you get a whole new roof installed.
How Much Does Shingle Roof Replacement Cost?
The cost of shingle roof replacement will depend on the size of your roof, the type of shingles you need, and what you're looking to do with your roof overall.
Materials, Sizing, and Severity All Play a Role in Cost
Materials, the size of the roof, and the severity of the damage will all affect how much a shingle roof replacement job will cost. It’s also important to consider the warranties that are there. If you need a whole new roof, it might be worth adding on a warranty or looking into one with your contractor for more coverage.
If your shingled roofing was damaged by a weather event, such as a hurricane or thunderstorm, Chase Roofing can help with the insurance claims process from start to finish. We communicate with your profit adjuster as they work with your home’s insurance provider to ensure that your claim is maximized and that your roofing is back to normal as quickly as possible.
Choosing the Right Roofing Contractor for Shingled Roofing
Choosing the right roofing contractor is vital for shingled roofing because they can help you determine if your shingle roof needs repairs, a total replacement, or just minor fixes. Keep in mind that there are many different types of roofing materials available these days, so it's best to get more than one opinion before opting for a new roof on your own.
Roofer Experience and Accreditations
It's essential to choose a qualified roofing contractor with experience and accreditations that match your requirements. Chase Roofing has been serving the South Florida community since 2002, and we are proud to boast an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.

In the proposal phase of our re-roofing, Chase showed a strong interest in helping with our insurance discounts and carried that to the end of the job by seeing that we had all the necessary paperwork. The job started on the day they had promised and continued straight through every workday except for fairly significant rain delays which they handled nicely. We were satisfied with the communications, maintenance of the work site, and the quality of work. We are happy to rate Chase Roofing with five stars
First and foremost your employees were so polite!!! They showed me pictures of exactly what they were doing and explained every detail which I felt was very important. This is my 3rd time (for different leaks) using Chase and find they are very professional and knowledgeable and they really make the customer #1. Thanks again!!!!

Shingles From Owens Corning and Major Manufacturers
The Owens Corning Duration shingle is made of fiberglass infused with asphalt. The top side is sprayed with granules. The granules provide color, UV protection, and algae resistance. They come in many different styles, the two most common of these being three-tab and architectural.
The three-tab is the most economical type and comes in a variety of colors. They typically carry a 60 mph wind rating and up to a 25-year warranty. Because of the low wind rating, these shingles are not recommended in South Florida.
Architectural roofing shingles also referred to as dimensional, laminated, or composite shingles, have a heavier base mat with multiple layers of added material. Architectural shingles carry up to a 130 mph wind rating and up to 50-year warranties. The two kinds are different aesthetically and many people prefer the architectural shingles, which also weigh about 50% more than the three-tab shingles. This makes them last longer than the three-tab type of shingle.
Chase Roofing is an approved licensed roof shingle applicator to all major shingle manufacturers.
As an Owens Corning Preferred Platinum Roofing Contractor, Chase Roofing is proud to offer the Owens Corning Preferred Protection Warranty. Owens Corning backs our work with a complete material and labor warranty. Ask us about this industry-leading roof shingle warranty.
