Over 25 years ago wood shingle roof systems were very common in San Diego. But over time they have been found to be highly flammable and are being replaced at a rapid rate. With new local fire codes, we will no longer find these roofs in existence in the next few years. You’ll notice that when the wood shingles are torn off, there are wood slat boards known as “skip sheeting” underneath. Before the new roofing material is applied, plywood or OSB board is installed on top to lengthen the life of the roof.

In San Diego and surrounding areas one of the most popular types of roofing is asphalt shingle roofing, more commonly known as “composition” roofing. This type of roofing system is far more durable than a flat roof or tile roof system. There are different types of asphalt shingles, from a flat looking shingle, to a shingle with profile and definition than high grade asphalt shingle with a higher definition and a more complex pattern looking almost like a shake roof system. The most common asphalt shingle that we use here in San Diego is a dimensional 30 yr or a dimensional lifetime shingle.
