The primary benefits of a shingle roofing system are its cost, convenience, and durability. Shingle roofs come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, which lends itself to endless customization to fit your home’s unique style. They are designed in such a way that they can effectively repel water, snow, and ice, and are the most commonly used residential roof system in the United States.

Roof shingles come in a variety of materials which include:

  • Asphalt – Organic / Fiberglass / Laminated / Composite: Asphalt-based shingles are the most common type of roofing material in the United States. They are made from a fiberglass or organic felt mat that is covered in asphalt, and coated with small granules. They are available in a variety of colors and styles, making them a popular choice for homeowners. They are also relatively inexpensive and easy to install, making them a great option for those on a budget. However, they have a shorter lifespan compared to other options and are not as energy efficient. The higher-end laminated composite shingles are a bit thicker. These are laminated and include a combination of additional materials, such as plastics and rubbers. Though these versions are more expensive, they are known for their higher durability and better resistance to extreme weather conditions and can last for up to 50 years with proper maintenance. They also provide a greater insulation value and can further help reduce energy costs.
  • Metal: Metal shingles are primarily made from aluminum, copper, or steel. They offer a strong, durable, and long-lasting option, making them a great choice for those living in areas with harsh weather. They are also available in a variety of colors and styles, making them a popular choice among homeowners. Additionally, they are highly energy efficient and environmentally friendly. However, they can be expensive to install and may not be suitable for all home styles.
  • Wood: Wood shingles and shakes are made from natural wood, such as cedar, redwood, or pine. Though they can add natural beauty and considerable warmth to the appearance of a home, they do have some significant disadvantages. For instance, they aren’t very pest or fire-resistant. Likewise, they require regular maintenance and are not as durable as other options. Additionally, they are not as energy efficient as other materials in certain scenarios and may not be suitable for all climates.
  • Solar: Solar shingles are a newer option that combines traditional roofing materials with solar panels. They are designed to collect energy from the sun and convert it into electricity for your home. They offer a cost-effective and environmentally friendly option, as they can reduce your energy bills and carbon footprint. However, they can be more expensive to install than traditional options and may not be suitable for all climates.
Shingles offer one of the more budget-friendly roofing materials, while still being reliable and effective and protecting your home. They can also be a very long-lasting material, and depending on what kind of shingle you choose, can last 30+ years. In addition to their durability, the upfront cost and lifespan allow them to contrast favorably when compared with other roofing systems.

A quality shingle roof not only increases the value of your home but also provides the lasting protection you’re looking for in a new roof system. They will help keep your home adequately insulated and help act as a protective barrier to your property, but it is important to work with a professional roofing contractor like us that has the necessary skills in working with these materials and to ensure that your roof is properly installed and maintained.
