A Leader in the Industry
Asphalt shingles are the most popular type of roof installation in the United States. These shingles are durable, available in a variety of colors and styles, lightweight, and relatively low cost. A typical asphalt shingle ranges from 12-18 inches in width and 36-40 inches in length and is made with an organic felt or fiberglass base. Ceramic-coated mineral granules sprinkled atop the base give the shingle its color and added protection. Besides adding aesthetic appeal, these granules guard against UV rays and increase fire resistance. A properly installed asphalt shingle roof can last upwards of 20 years.
Hailstorms, strong winds, UV rays, and animals, however, can damage or remove sections of asphalt shingles on your home’s roof. With the passing of time and rain, the protective granules start to wash off the shingles. In fact, you may often find granules in your home’s gutters. Constantly finding a large number of granules in your gutter is an indication that a roof repair or replacement is in your near future.

Signs That You Need to Call Holland Homes Roofing Co. ASAP
Granules in your gutter are one sign that might require asphalt shingle repair in North Billerica, MA. There are also other indicators that your roof may be in need of repair:
- There are many cracked, curled, and/or missing shingles. A few cracked, curled, or missing shingles is a quick fix, but if you notice several shingles like this, a whole new roof might be in order.
- Shingles are dirty and moldy-looking. Dark, dirty, and wet shingles mean that moisture is being trapped inside. Considering that roofs are supposed to keep your home dry; shingles that don’t repel water definitely need to be replaced.
- There are water stains on your ceiling. Water stains on the ceiling can have many causes, but a possible cause is your roof’s underlayment. The underlayment is put down before the shingles, but if it’s damaged, it may allow water into your home, which leads to staining.
- You have moss growing on your shingles. If your roof doesn’t get much sunlight and you live in a moist, cool climate, your roof may be at risk for moss growth. Moss retains moisture, and when it freezes, it can cause damage to the granules on top of your shingles.
