Choosing Roofing Materials

Defective or aging roofs can cause significant issues for homeowners. They can lead to moisture and safety challenges, increase utility costs and make your home appear outdated. Additionally, neglecting a roof replacement can escalate some issues, requiring even more costly repairs.

Sunshine Contracting is your solution for a prompt, high-quality replacement for northern Virginia roofing.

Offering Shingle Styles for Every Home

Modern roofing options have significantly evolved beyond their traditional models. Today, homeowners can opt for a range of styles, like:

  • Three-tab shingles: This conventional design remains the most popular, thanks to affordability, easy installation and various colors.
  • Architectural styles: These shingles let you bring elements of dimension and texture to your roofing.
  • Designer shingles: This option allows you to experiment with different shingle shapes and variegated colors to create a unique look.
  • Cedar-shake styles: These shingles offer extended durability and unmatched beauty.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are perhaps the most commonly used material for roof replacement due to their color selection, styles, warranties, and relatively low cost, providing excellent protection in a wide range of environments. A professional Virginia contractor will install Asphalt shingles in layers. Shingles installed in layers are then traditionally trimmed with three tabs with each subsequent row overlapping the previous layer by one third. This provides a small gutter effect on each layer of the shingles that helps water and melting snow run off the roof without seeping underneath. Each shingle usually has a thin bead of tar on the underside, which will adhere to the upper layer further sealing them from leaks. An advantage of asphalt shingles is that most Virginia licensed contractors usually offer a guarantee for 20 years and in some instances, 30 years.

Wood Shake Shingles

Wood shake shingles are also popular with many VA contractors and over time tend to weather to a gray color, or silver depending on the type of wood used. Shake shingles, made of cedar, weather well and are cut thicker than other types of wood shingles and are typically split from logs rather than evenly cut. An important installation aspect of wood shingles is their need to breath and they are not mounted over a solid substrate, like asphalt shingles. Pressure treated lattice or newly-developed plastic materials are often used as an underlayment that provides for a flat surface while still allowing air to circulate under and around the wood shingles.


Regardless of the material used, flashing will need to be installed around chimneys, vents, pipes, and any other type of protrusions through the roof to prevent leaks. Sunshine Contracting uses only the best flashing metals and exterior caulk so you can rest assured your roof will not leak.

“From the beginning of our engagement with the sales team, to working out the details with the project managers and finally interacting with the construction crews during the installation we had a very positive experience. We loved our new roof and HD shingles so much we decided to also contract with Sunshine for a new front door and storm door. Again another great installation was the result! Five stars.”
