What Is Shingle Roofing?
As the most popular roofing material in the U.S., shingles are a great option to consider for your roofing project. Shingles are tiles that overlap over the surface of a pitched roof. The surface of a shingle can be either flat or rounded.
Shingles are designed for use on pitched roofs, not flat roofs. This is because a slope must be present to drain water off of the roof and into the gutter system. With a flat roof, water can’t drain as effectively from the roof, and a water-resistant roofing material should be used in place of shingles.
Roofing shingles come in a wide variety of materials, so you can find the right shingle color, style, and texture to suit your home. Different shingle materials also have varying prices and levels of durability. We’ll help you determine the right shingles to fit your budget and long-term needs.
What Types of Shingles Are Available?
Roofing shingles are available in a wide range of materials, including:
Asphalt is the most common material for roof shingles. As a lightweight, cost-efficient, and waterproof material, asphalt shingles are a practical option for many homeowners. Additionally, asphalt shingles are quick to install, providing a fast turnaround for your roofing project.
Both authentic and synthetic slate shingles are available for residential and commercial properties. Authentic slate shingles are incredibly long-lasting with a lifespan of up to a century, but synthetic shingles are lightweight and much more affordable.
Similarly to authentic slate, clay tiles can last for a century or more. Traditional clay tiles provide a charming, rustic look to any home. Clay tiles can also be created to mimic other roofing materials, including wood or slate.
Rubber shingles are cost-effective and environmentally-friendly. Rubber shingles have a lifespan of around 30 years and can be made to look like asphalt, slate, or wood.
