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!
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.

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.
Maintaining a Shingle Roof on Your Own
If you have a shingle roof, it is essential to be aware of your repair options. There are many different types of roofs and they all require different care depending on the type. A leak can happen at any time, so it’s important to know what steps need to be taken to fix the problem as quickly and efficiently as possible. The best way to avoid leaks is by having routine maintenance done on your roof every year or two. This will help ensure that there are no problems with your roof before they become major issues that may cost thousands of dollars in repairs. You should also make sure that you have an emergency kit on hand just in case something does happen; this will include items such as tarps, buckets, towels, rope, and other items needed for minor emergencies like a small hole or leak from rain damage.
