Types of Asphalt Shingle Roofs We Install
With the variety of options that asphalt shingles roofing provides, homeowners can achieve a unique look on their homes without breaking the bank. These are the asphalt shingle types Elo Roofing roof services provider can install for homes in Florida:
Three-tab Asphalt Shingles
Three-tab shingles are the most common type of asphalt shingle roofing, classified by their cutouts which make them look like three separate pieces. They’re affordable, lightweight, easy to maintain, energy efficient, and can last up to 20 years.
Architectural Asphalt Shingles
Laminated with an additional asphalt layer and bonded with asphalt sealant, architectural asphalt shingles have a more defined, structural look and are more durable and waterproof than three-tab asphalt shingles. They come in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes and can easily mimic the look of more premium roofing alternatives like cedar and slate.
In addition to these types, there are also different materials that your shingles could be made of:
Fiberglass shingles are made with a combination of woven fiberglass as the base, asphalt coating, and ceramic granules on top. These materials create a waterproof and UV-protectant shingle while also being extremely lightweight and thin due to their lower amounts of asphalt.
Organic Mat-based Shingles
Organic mat-based shingles are a kind of asphalt shingle roofing that has a recycled felt paper layer for its base. They’ll be heavier, thicker, and slightly more expensive than fiberglass shingles, but they’re also more rugged and flexible.
The Benefits of Asphalt Shingle Roofing
Many factors make asphalt shingles the most popular choice for home roofs. Here are some major benefits of asphalt shingle roofs:
An asphalt shingle roof is a fraction of the cost of most other roofing types. Even on the premium end, asphalt shingles will still give homeowners on a budget the best bang for their buck. With proper installation and regular maintenance, a quality roof doesn’t have to break the bank.
Asphalt shingles come in a wide variety of colors as well, ranging from neutrals like shades of gray and brown to more statement-making colors like blue and polychromatic hues. Depending on how much they’re willing to spend, homeowners have the choice of installing asphalt shingle roofing that perfectly emulates wood or slate.
Both asphalt shingle roof installation and roof repairs are relatively simple since new shingles can be installed on top of existing ones, assuming that there aren’t more than two layers underneath already and that the roof deck is in decent condition.
