What are the Types Of Shingle Roofs?

When it comes to picking the perfect roof, there are a number of options. The most common roofs you'll see when shopping for new ones will be asphalt shingles or metal. If your home is on an incline, then metals may come in handy because they're lightweight and durable - but what if your house has flat pitches? That's where having an asphalt shingle can help out! They have plenty of different colors and styles that would match any style of architecture from modern to traditional; just make sure you find one with good warranty coverage so that way all those worries about leaks go away too!

Asphalt Shingle Roofs

If you have asphalt shingles, then you've probably noticed that they are bit different from other shingles in terms of thickness and general style. Typically, asphalt roofs these days will use something called composition laminated shingle; this is a fiberglass mat embedded with an asphalt compound and granules.

3 Tab Shingle Roofs

Three-tab shingles are an iconic style that is reminiscent of a simpler time. They haven't been used much in recent years and have gradually been replaced by more modern styles. If you don't need to upgrade but like the classic look, it's still possible to convert your current roof into architectural style shingles without breaking the bank!

Architectural Shingle Roofs

Architectural shingles are the perfect choice for a home with character. The wood-like look of laminated composite shingle roofs give your house that cozy, rustic quality and you can choose from an array of colors to suit your style!

Impact-Resistant Shingles

Some people say that even impact-resistant shingles can't be totally protected from hail and other objects, but we've found insurance companies to not pay out on these claims if impact-resistant shingles have shielded the roof from an object like a tree branch. Our opinion is your money would be better saved as deductible rather than paying extra for something you may never need; however some local contractors will try their best to sell it anyways!

Wind Rated Shingles

Homeowners should be aware of the types of wind their roof can withstand. Not all shingles will hold up in strong winds, so it is important to get the right ones for your home and lifestyle. The average homeowner might not think about this very often because these events are infrequent, but knowing what rating they need on their roofs could keep them safe when a storm does happen. Most architectural shingles have ratings that go as high 110 mph depending which one you purchase while there are others with 150 mph or more durability if necessary.

High Profile, Scalloped, or Other Shingles

You deserve a roof that looks great and lasts long - which is exactly what our team of experts will provide. When it comes to finding the right shingle, there are many options available on the market today! L-shaped ones with scallops or slate lookalikes are just some of them. Just make sure you know that some are high-profile and will cost more than the average shingle before making any decisions.

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.

Should You Repair a Shingle Roof on Your Own?

Yes, if your roof is relatively new and you're looking for a temporary fix. The lifespan of a roof can be extended with proper maintenance. A newer shingled roof has material that better seals out the weather, which means it is more durable and can withstand an attempted repair without being compromised. If you go to patch a crack on your old brittle shingle roof, especially if not done by professionals or someone with experience in this field, you risk causing even bigger issues! The best course of action would be calling Cook Roofing Company for a free estimate where we'll give you honest and thorough advice about repairing or replacing your older, fragile roof.

FAQ

What Separates Architectural Shingles from Other Shingles?
Both of these shingles are a type of asphalt shingle. As the name suggests, three-tab have cutouts that make each shingle appear to have three different sections. Architectural shingles don't have cutouts. Their lower parts are laminated and have an additional asphalt layer. They are also denser than three-tab shingles because of the extra layer, which means that they also have a better windproof rating (up to 60 mph vs. 120 mph). Also, three-tab shingles have manufacturer's warranties of 25 years, and architectural shingles have a warranty of 40 to 50 years. Three-tab shingles are less expensive, but architectural shingles have more to offer.
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.
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.
