The primary benefits of a shingle roof system are their cost, convenience, and durability. Shingles 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 seen residential roof system in the United States. Roof shingles come in a variety of materials which include:
- Asphalt – Organic / Fiberglass
- Synthetic Composite
Like with other roofing materials there are a few different types to consider with shingles, they include:
- 3 tab / Traditional / Standard / Strip
- Architectural / Dimensional
- Designer / Luxury / Premium / Laminate
- Imitation Wood Shake/Slate Tile
Shingles offer one of the more budget friendly roofing materials, while still being reliable and effective and protecting your home. They are easy to install, which makes them the preferred choice for DIY homeowners. They are also 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 of shingles allows 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. Shingles also act as a noise barrier and can make your house seem more quiet during extreme weather. Most shingle material has a high fire rating (excluding wood).
