There is an overwhelming amount of options when it comes to shingles. Each one has various benefits, costs, materials, and styles.
As diligent roofing experts, we have performed our duty through the years to test and determine the best products. And, narrowing it down to the most robust quality.
There are three main classes of asphalt shingles, and they are the most common type of roof replacements or new home roof installations that homeowners choose.
3-tab asphalt is the most affordable, however they are thinner, have an organic-mat paper base, and wear out more quickly than fiberglass or architectural shingles.
Fiberglass shingles are made of a woven fiberglass base mat, covered with a waterproof asphalt coating, and topped with ceramic granules that shield the shingles from harmful UV rays.
Architectural shingles are high-quality dimensional or laminated. They are made from a fiberglass mat base with ceramic coated minerals that are set in water-resistant asphalt. The synthetic slate shingles weigh less and do not require heavy support. They come in more luxurious looking styles that homeowners prefer and can even simulate wood shake designs. Though they are more expensive, they can last up to twice as long as 3-tab asphalt shingles. Architectural asphalt shingles can last from 30 to 50 years or more with proper maintenance.
Metal Roof Shingles are comparably easy to install, and they are lightweight, making them an excellent choice for homes with a roof system that can’t support heavier options. They also have a stylish appearance and are available in numerous different color options. Metal roofs have one of the most extended lifespans in comparison to other roof types.
If you own a classic colonial or a brick house, then metal shingles is definitely the way to go, especially if you want to preserve that “authentic traditional look”, yet, have all the benefits of a metal roof.
Wooden Shingle Roofs (NOT Slate Shingles) are comprised of various different types of wood split into thin segments.
They are sawn on both sides, which allow for a sleek design, protective nature, and increased protection against fires. They are versatile in that they can be stacked on top of one another and help in colder climates in retaining heat.
They complement any scenic and natural beauty surrounding your home while giving depth and dimension to the exterior. Assorted styles of wood shingles include fish-scale, diamond, sawtooth, and steam-bent, each adding a precise pattern and highlights the traditional and unique aspects of your house.
