Roof Shingles and what they are:

Roof shingles are a roof covering consisting of individual overlapping elements. Shingle roofs are among the most popular type of roofing used in homes in the United States but may deteriorate faster and need to repel more water than wall shingles. These elements are typically flat, rectangular shapes laid in courses from the bottom edge of the roof up, with each successive course overlapping the joints below. Shingles are made of various materials such as wood, slate, flagstone, fibre cement, metal, plastic, and composite material such as asphalt shingles. Ceramic roof tiles, which still dominate in Europe and some parts of Asia, are still usually called tiles.

Shingle Benefits:

  • Asphalt shingles tiles – Usually the cheapest roofing material, but they are highly resilient. Asphalt shingles can last upwards of 30 years when properly installed by a contractor. They are energy efficient and reliable and a popular choice for many residential roof applications.
  • Wood shingles tiles – Can outperform and outlast asphalt shingles and can last for decades. Wood shingles can bring some personality and charm that may not be achieved by other roof tile types.
  • Slate roofing tiles – Offers a superior water / freezing resistance to other roofing materials.
