Shingle Roofing Systems

Whether you currently have a shingle roof, have or problems with your existing roof or are considering a shingle roof for your home, Overson Roofing can help. Our almost 40 years of experience and fast response time will have your roof looking new in no time.

Arizona roofs must endure extreme temperatures during the summer and strong winds, rain and hail during monsoon season. Overson Roofing uses top of the line shingles with expert installation and repair processes to ensure your roof will last for years to come.

Common Shingle Repairs

The Arizona heat can cause asphalt shingles to crack and become brittle over time. The most common shingle repairs we experience are replacing damaged or missing shingles, fixing curled roof shingles, and repairing cracked shingles. These issues are all easy to fix and will not strain your wallet.

Single Roofing System Components

A high-quality roof requires more than top of the line shingles. An entire roofing system is needed to ensure your roof is lasting and requires little maintenance.The roofing system components include the following:

Roof Deck Protection

Roof deck protection allows moisture to escape the attic while providing protection against the elements. Deck protection also lies flat underneath your shingles providing a smooth and aesthetically pleasing look.

High Quality Shingles

Overson Roofing only installs top of the line shingles. When deciding on a shingle roof there are a variety to choose from including color, style, brand and warranty.

Ridge Capping

Ridge cap shingles are designed to fit along the ridgeline of your roof. Ridge cap shingles are often pre-bent and thicker than your typical roofing shingle. The shape of the shingle along the ridgeline will help with the flow of water off of your roof helping protect it from water ponding.


Proper ventilation is important in keeping your shingle roof free of mold and mildew. Good ventilation also helps regulate your home’s temperature keeping your energy costs down. The ventilation Overson Roofing installs includes but not limited to:

Tile Ridge Vent

Tile ridge vents are placed at the ridgeline, the hottest point of the roof. Ridge vents prevent your attic from becoming too hot potentially causing damage to your roof. Tile ridge vents regulate your homes temperature and can help keep energy costs low.

Soffit Vents

Soffitt vents are installed under the eaves of your roof. Soffitt vents allow fresh air to enter your attic keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Soffitt vents also reduce energy costs. Combining soffit vents with other ventilation components, such as fans, can keep your attic from overheating.

Working in unison, these elements can provide maximum performance and efficiency. Shingles by themselves may look nice, but without considering the whole package, you could be looking at major roof or attic problems down the road.

Styles of Shingles

Choosing a style doesn’t have to be a difficult decision. Overson Roofing can help you make the right choice for your home. We will help you with your decision on style, brand and warranty components of our high-quality shingles.

Asphalt Composition Shingles

Asphalt composition shingles are among the most common roofing materials and can be split into three categories, 3-tab shingles, laminate/dimensional and designer. Asphalt shingles are made of fiberglass or if you are looking to go the eco-friendly route there are brands made with recycled paper-based products mixed with asphalt. Asphalt shingles often are the most cost- effective choice in roof protection. Asphalt shingle roofs come with a Class A fire rating and have warranties from 20 years up to lifetime.

3-Tab Shingles

3-tab shingles are made up of 3 individual tabs that are 12” wide. These shingles work the same as your basic asphalt composition shingle by shedding water and debris to the shingle below and eventually into your gutters. 3-tab roofing shingles often come with a 20-to-25-year manufacturer’s warranty.

Laminates / Dimensional Shingles

Laminate shingles are one of the more popular shingle styles. These shingles are made with layers of fiberglass covered in asphalt and overlaid with fire-resistant granules. Unlike the 3-tab shingles, laminate shingles are single unit shingles. These shingles are made in different shapes and sizes allowing you to create designs and patterns on your roof. Laminate shingles often come with manufacturer’s warranties ranging from 30-to-50 years.

Designer Shingles

Designer shingles are two fused layers of shingle material. The fusing of the layers provides these shingles with a 3-dimensional look. These roofs are more durable than laminate and 3-tab shingled roofs. Designer shingled roofs are able to withstand winds up to 130 mph and can last for over 25 years and with regular maintenance can last a lifetime. Designer shingles come with a 50 year or lifetime manufacturer’s warranty.

Filing an Insurance Claim

If your shingle roof has been damaged by a storm or an accident you may need to contact your insurance company. Before making any decisions on fixing your roof contact your insurance provider to discuss your options are.

Once you understand your options, hire a licensed roofing contractor to make the assessment process easier. The contractor will assess and document the damage on your roof by noting the date of the storm or accident, taking photos, and writing down areas that were damaged. It is your responsibility to disclose any damage to property inside of your home. Ask the roofing contractor for an estimate on the repair or replacement costs.

After your contractor gives you the assessment documentation contact your insurance company to file your claim.

Getting Multiple Estimates

You often don’t need to get multiple estimates. Most all policies are replacement cost policies, which means your insurance company will pay you the cost to replace your roof even if you are only get one estimate. They might encourage you to get three estimates, but it is not necessary.

Especially in monsoon season, when all roofing companies are inundated with requests, you might get the process going faster if you do your due diligence to choose one company to work with. Be sure that you call licensed and bonded professionals that can produce local references that are at least one year old.

Choose a Qualified Roofer

When choosing a roofing company, you want to make sure they are qualified to do the job. Ask the contractor about their state licensing. Roofing companies also need individual licenses for residential and commercial properties. Overson Roofing is licensed by the State of Arizona Registrar of Contractors (Overson Roofing License Numbers ROC 274692, 207860, and 247074). Overson Roofing is fully licensed, bonded and insured. Also, search for Better Business Bureau ratings. Overson Roofing continuously receives A+ ratings from the BBB.
