Types of Roofing Shingles
The first type of shingles combines asphalt with fiberglass or natural materials, such as cellulose or wood. They can be found in multiple colors and sizes, and the most popular asphalt shingle type is the dimensional variety. These shingles are thicker, have several layers, and last twice as long as cheaper asphalt shingles.
On the other hand, three-tab shingles are the most affordable asphalt shingle option. However, three-tab shingles aren’t as durable as dimensional models and can last anywhere from 15 to 30 years.
Asphalt shingles are popular for several reasons. They are fireproof, waterproof, and can withstand snow and hail storms up to a certain magnitude. If a homeowner wants additional protection, they can get class 4 impact rating shingles that can endure severe weather conditions, but these are usually the priciest solution. Additionally, buying Energy Star-eligible asphalt shingles may be enough to qualify for tax credits.
This type of roofing comes in numerous styles and colors. In many cases, asphalt shingles replicate the appearance of other, more expensive styles at a fraction of the cost. They are also comparatively easy to install—contractors can even install them over existing shingles if the roof deck can hold it and there’s only one layer down.
Initially, tile shingles were made of clay and other materials available locally. Over the years, building them has become much more efficient, but the tiles have largely remained the same. The most well-known models are pale pink and orange terracotta clay tiles, commonly featured in Spanish architecture. Tile shingles now emulate many other materials, come in a wide array of colors, and create stunning patterns.
A significant benefit of tile shingles is their durability. Namely, when installed and maintained correctly, they can offer excellent protection for as long as 75 years. For this reason, tile shingles can save a lot of money associated with future repairs and replacement. Moreover, concrete and clay tiles are exceptionally durable and can withstand hail and high winds, making them extremely effective during hurricane season.
Apart from their durability, these shingles also come with class A fire protection. As a result, they aren’t prone to combustion from embers carried from a nearby fire, which is a crucial feature in regions plagued by drought and wildfires. Also, clay and other natural materials safeguard against heat exchange, making them more energy-efficient and great for environmentally friendly houses. The sun’s heat is blocked and doesn’t reach into the attic due to the gap underneath the tiles, lowering cooling costs.
When selecting clay tile shingles, homeowners can find the perfect match since they can be molded into multiple shapes. Tile shingles also come in various lighter colors, which keep them cool. These shingles can add tremendous value to the house. Just make sure that they aren’t too heavy for the home by having a trusted professional examine the roof.
Wood shingles are roofing solutions machine-cut from pine, spruce, or cedar to provide a natural, environmentally friendly option. They are one of the most desired and oldest materials on the market. Anyone who installs wood shingles lends a classic, old-world charm to their house. If installed correctly, they can remain on the roof for up to 50 years, as they are quite durable.
One of the most useful features wood shingles bring to the home is improved air circulation. They enable the house to breathe well without trapping moisture, keeping the entire structure in great condition. Another advantage wood shingles boast is exceptional resilience. They can endure inclement weather, including high winds, storms, hurricanes, and withstand the impact of flying debris.
Wood shingles only look better with time. Their color matures nicely as the years pass, so they preserve and enhance their aesthetics for an extended period. They add a unique charm to the house that sets them apart from any other roofing solution available. Energy efficiency is another strong suit, making them an excellent choice for eco-friendly projects.
Bear in mind that not all wood shingles possess the same quality. The highest-rated wood shingles are usually cut perpendicular to the tree rings. Conversely, lower-end shingles are cut parallel to the tree rings and may contain knots. Regardless of the wood shingle type, they require maintenance in the form of stain, paint, or varnish to stave off termites, wood bores, and other pests.
Metal roofing is most famous for its durability and strength. This option can endure just about anything Mother Nature has in store, from snow and heavy rain to wind gusts, hail, and ice. Even though different brands feature varying strength levels, most metal roofing solutions won’t corrode or crack. Even exposure to extreme temperatures won’t affect its functionality and beauty, and this type of roof can last for about 80 years.
Unlike many other roofing options, such as asphalt shingles and wood shakes, metal roofing is low maintenance. Metal roofs only require a periodical inspection to ensure there are no problematic areas that need repairs. Be on the lookout for abrasions, scratches, stains, and other imperfections. To be sure the roof is in good condition, schedule a yearly inspection with a reliable roofer.
Metal roofs are also a great solution due to their sustainability and energy efficiency. They contain at least 25% recycled materials and are recyclable themselves. They are also ideal for homeowners looking to adopt eco-friendly approaches to their house, such as installing solar panels and systems for collecting rainwater. Lastly, metal roofs reflect solar heat, which can cut cooling expenses by as much as 25% year-round.
Slate shingles offer a unique appeal due to their beauty. They are a stunning roofing material revered by architects because of their clean, classic lines. Slate shingles also come in various colors, widths, and thicknesses. Homeowners can also get composite shingles that resemble slate at a much lower cost.
Slate roofs are among the most durable roofing solutions. They outlast many other roofing materials, and most of them are expected to last at least 40 years. The highest-rated slate shingles can last upwards of 75 years, while some models can even remain on the house for up to a century. Accompanied by long warranties, slate shingles are an outstanding long-term solution, especially for homeowners who don’t plan on moving any time soon.
Because of their superb longevity and durability, slate shingles aren’t too demanding maintenance-wise. They aren’t usually prone to harmful effects that cause wear and tear to traditional shingles, which is why there’s no need to worry about repairing or replacing damaged shingles. Slate roofs are also quite dense, allowing for limited water absorption and eliminating the risk of mold or mildew.
Shingle Roof Repair
Shingle roofs are more durable than they often get credit for; some shingles get a class IV hail rating, which is the highest available. Our shingle roof services include repairs, even emergency repairs in the middle of the night. If you suspect a roof leak, don’t wait to call us. Roof leaks won’t go away on their own! Keep an eye out for missing shingles, cracked shingles, granules in your downspout, and water stains on the ceiling; these are all shingle roof problems that need to be resolved.
If the end of your shingle roof’s lifespan is rapidly approaching, but the roof is still in relatively decent shape, then re-roofing is a smart choice. Let our expert roofers save you time and money with re-roofing. We will add a new layer of shingles on top of your existing roof instead of completely tearing off your old roof and replacing it. Call us today to see if re-roofing is a possible choice for your home.
Shingle Roof Replacement
Our team of roofers will always do what they can to extend the life of your current roof, but when the time comes for a shingle roof replacement, we will give you a detailed written estimate without any hidden fees. We skip the sneaky sales tactics because we want to earn your trust and make sure your home has a sturdy and secure new roof.
We work with two types of asphalt shingles: glass fiber and organic. Each type of shingle has its benefits, and we’d be happy to discuss the best option for your property. Organic asphalt shingles consist of an organic felt component saturated with asphalt to make them water-resistant.
Glass fiber asphalt shingles feature a fiber reinforcing mat that is made into the shape of the shingle. The reinforcing mat is coated with asphalt, containing mineral fillers, which makes the shingle waterproof. After the asphalt cools, an additional adhesive asphalt is applied to coat the mat, and ceramic granules are embedded. The ceramic granules help protect your roof from the sun’s UV rays, which can cause premature deterioration. Plus they look great!
Luckily, a shingle roof takes less time to install than more expensive roofing systems. Before we begin the replacement, we will walk you through every step of the process, so there are no surprises. Our crew members are always respectful of your time and property and will cause as little disturbance as possible – and we always clean up once the job is finished. When you call, make sure to ask about the new roof warranties we offer. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can make sure your home is protected with a new shingle roof.
