Shingle roofing is one of the most popular roofing materials in all of the roofing industry, and rightfully so. This versatile system offers excellent weather resistance and protection at highly affordable prices, but not without an element of classic beauty as well. Exploring a new system or repairs for your roof can be complicated, but here we simplify the process with a brief overview of roofing shingles.
Picture a shingle roof in your mind: how does it look? The chances are high that you first pictured asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles are easily the most widely used material in the roofing industry, thanks to their hardy resistance to the elements at wallet-friendly prices. Two popular styles of asphalt shingles are 3-tab and architectural. 3-tab shingles are able to withstand 60 mile per hour winds and carry a lifespan around 15-25 years: an excellent choice for the budget savvy homeowner. Architectural shingles last around 20-35 years and are known to withstand winds of up to 120 miles per hour.
Shingles are also available as stone, wood, metal, slate, and even more. If your home needs new shingles, or you are looking for an affordable solution to your currently failing roof, our team is on call to help you decide on the ideal solution for your roof. Call us today at (615) 824-1500!
