Shingles are the most common roof type for their cost-effective material and easy installation. This roofing option is made of asphalt and lasts about 20 years if properly maintained. It is also eco-friendly as shingles can later be reused to make asphalt.
Other benefits of using shingles include:
- Low maintenance
Unlike other choices like metal or TPO, shingles are easy to make and install for an affordable roofing solution, even if this material doesn’t last as long as some alternatives. Shingles are lightweight, so they can be used on any roof structure, unlike tile or metal, which may need additional support beams. However, shingles usually stay within the black-grey color palette, so if you’re trying to use your roof as a statement piece, shingles may not be the choice for you.
Drawbacks of using shingles include:
- Short lifespan
- Less versatile
- Not as strong as other options
Our roofing shingles are a cost-effective option for your roof, but they are more susceptible to cracking, removal, and mold than other roofing solutions. Metal roofs don’t experience mold and brittleness as shingles do. Asphalt shingles are also not fire resistant and come in a minimal selection. Where shingles last up to 20 years, other roofing options could last 50 years or longer.
There are various types of shingles, including three-tab, architectural, and luxury. Three-tab shingles are the cheapest and often come with a manufacturer’s warranty. They have three tabs on each strip and are usually made of asphalt. After being removed, this material can be reused to make asphalt instead of creating waste.
Dimensional or architectural shingles can create a pattern or simulate the look of a wood-shake roof. They are also made of laminate and last about 30 years with proper maintenance. This usually includes metal or tile options known for their detailed designs.
For larger sizes that are made to look like slate, choose luxury shingles. These are the most expensive type of shingle but also tend to last the longest. These shingles may include solar and fiberglass for various lifespans.
If you want an antique aesthetic, wood shake shingles are typically made of cedar for a rough but natural look. They last longer but require more maintenance than traditional asphalt solutions. This includes manufactured and hand-cut options for an even more unique look.
You may be interested in metal shingles for multiple color options and a long lifespan. These can last up to 100 years with proper maintenance and can be made of aluminum, copper, steel, tin, or zinc. However, this can be an expensive option for your home.
