Different Types Of Shingle Roofs

What type of roof do you have? If you're looking for a new roof, there are many different options to choose from. The most common roofs are asphalt shingles, metal, and flat roofs. Flat roofs are used where the pitch or slope is flat or nearly flat. Neither shingles nor metal are good for roof slopes lower than 0.5/12 (a half-inch of rise or less, per every 12 inches of run or horizontal surface). Asphalt shingles come in a variety of colors and styles that can match your home perfectly! Metal is an excellent choice if your home has steep pitches because it's lightweight and durable. There are many options available to you, and it's up to you to decide which you want for your home.

Asphalt Shingle Roofs

Asphalt shingles have a different style and thickness as their defining characteristics.  Modern Asphalt roofs us composition laminated shingles like fiberglass mat embedded with an asphalt compound.

3-Tab Shingle Roofs

Three-tab shingles are a classic, old-school design that really screams nostalgia. But these haven't been used much anymore and have gradually been replaced with more modern styles for the same cost! If you're not in need of an upgrade but want to keep your three-tab roof around out of admiration or respect, it's still possible to convert your current roof into architectural style shingles without breaking the bank.

Architectural Shingle Roofs

Some of the most common shingles that you can find being used now are architectural shingles, also known as laminated composite shingles. Architectural shingles have a staggered look to them, much like wood shake roofs do, but they come in a variety of different colors, which give a unique look that really pops!

Impact-Resistant Shingles

It is important to note that although these shingles are resistant or impervious, hail and other objects can damage even impact-resistant shingles. However, in our experience (having worked with them for years), insurance companies will not pay out on claims of this nature if impact-resistant shingles have shielded the roof from an object like a tree branch. Our opinion is that your money would be better saved as a deductible rather than paying extra for something you may never need; but some local contractors will try their best to sell it anyways!

Wind Rated Shingles

When it comes to wind, there are a variety of options: some shingles won't withstand strong winds and others can take the brunt. The Owens Corning Oakridge is an example since they resist up to 110 mph, but if you're in Springfield, MO, or near areas where straight-line winds exceed 100 miles per hour (such as during hurricanes), then your main concern will be something else entirely! The average homeowner might not have much concern about these types of weather events considering how infrequent they tend to happen, but it's always best for homeowners to know what rating their roof needs so as not to waste money on something more than necessary while also ensuring durability.

Other Designer Shingles

It’s time to find a new roof for your home. There are many different types of shingles available on the market, and Cook Roofing Company is ready to help you explore them all! For example, L-shaped ones with scallops or slate lookalikes. You won’t have any problems finding one that suits your tastes as they come at an affordable price too - just make sure you don't forget about these two important factors when choosing: color match and quality material.

When Should You Replace Your Shingle Roof?

If you’ve noticed your roof is looking a little worse for wear, it may be time to replace it. The asphalt shingles on most roofs will last around 15-25 years under optimal conditions. But if your roof has had a lot of external wear and tear via hail, fallen branches, etc., then it can wear out much faster than that time limit. Most of Missouri has experienced 5-10 hail storms just in the past several years and this can cause more roof replacements. Granules fall off the asphalt becomes brittle and cracks from high winds ripping apart mastic sealant (black sticky stuff) and tearing tabs off three tab roofs. If you find yourself in this situation, and it's been awhile since your roof has been installed, call us today for a free evaluation of your roof. We'll gauge whether there's damage to your roof that signals a replacement.

Can You Repair a Shingle Roof on Your Own?

Well, that depends on the state and age of your roof. A newer roof has material with better integrity and can possibly handle a repair without being compromised. A shingle roof is comprised of many components that stick together and seal out the weather. If you go to patch it - especially on an older, brittle roof, you can cause more issues! Your best course of action would be calling Cook Roofing Company for a free estimate. We'll give you honest and thorough advice about your options in repairing or replacing your shingled roof! We'll also help you file your insurance claim, so the only thing you'll have to pay for your roof repair will go towards your deductible!

FAQ

Are Architectural Shingles Worth the Cost?
It depends on your roofing preferences. Architectural shingles are a type of asphalt shingle, and they run on the low side of shingle costs, relatively speaking. However, architectural shingles are a more expensive type of asphalt shingle, but that doesn't mean it doesn't come with its perks. They have a decently high windproof rating for an asphalt shingle at 120 mph, so if you live in a region prone to tornadoes or heavy storms, then they're perfect for you. They also a more dense asphalt shingle and will better protect your roof from damage caused by hail, falling tree branches, etc. The lower portion of architectural shingles are laminated and give it a dimensional look that will give your roof more character than your typical asphalt shingle. So, if you think those benefits are something you're looking for, and you want to save money by going with asphalt shingles, then architectural shingles will probably be worth the cost to you.
What are the Different Types of Asphalt Shingle?
There are three different types of asphalt shingles: three-tab, luxury shingles, and architectural shingles (also known as dimensional or laminated shingles). Asphalt shingles are the most common shingle used in North America because of their relatively inexpensive cost and durability. The three types of asphalt shingle come at different prices (generally speaking); all you have to do is decern how much you're willing to spend and what specific shingle properties you prefer.
Are Architectural Shingles Easier to Install?
Architectural shingles are easier to install than other types of shingles. Of asphalt shingles, architectural shingles are not easier to install than three-tab shingles. However, asphalt shingles, on the whole, are easier to install than other premium shingles. Because asphalt shingles are easy to install and have a relatively good density and windproof grade, they are the most popular shingles in use in North America.
