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 They haven't been used much in recent years and have gradually been replaced by more modern styles.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.

How Do You Know If Your Shingle Roof Needs To Be Replaced?

If you have not replaced your roof in the past 15-20 years, it may be time. Most asphalt shingles will last between 15-25 years under optimal conditions. If your roof has had a lot of traffic, leaves, hail, or is poorly ventilated, it can wear out much faster. Most of Missouri has experienced 5-10 hail storms just over the past few years, and this tends to prompt roof replacements. Granules fall off, the asphalt becomes brittle and cracks, high winds can rip the mastic (black sticky stuff) seal apart and tear tabs off the shingle - especially on three-tab roofs. Whatever the reason your roof might be worn out, Cook Roofing Company has a plan to meet your needs - including financing. So call us for a free estimate today at 573-400-0307.

Can You Fix Your Shingle Roof on Your Own?

What should you do if your roof is leaking? If the leak is large and there is significant structural damage, such as buckling or bulging that cannot easily be repaired with patching materials, then replacing the entire roof may be necessary. However, if only one part of the structure needs repair, then this can often simply mean reroofing an affected area instead; these repairs are typically much less expensive and simple enough to fix yourself if you’re willing to take on the challenge. If the damage is too extensive, then you should call the professionals. A shingle roof is made up of many different components layered together to protect your home from harsh conditions. If your roof is old, a repair that you do yourself may be more detrimental to that system and cause additional problems in the future. To know for sure whether you can tackle a repair on your own, you can call Cook Roofing Company today at 573-400-0307 for a free evaluation so you can know exactly how extensive the damage is and what to do.

FAQ

What are Architectural Shingles?
Architectural shingles are a type of asphalt shingle. These shingles are often compared to the other type of asphalt shingle, three-tab shingles, but there are some key differences. Architectural shingles are almost twice as thick as three-tab shingles, making them more durable. They also have a unique look that gives them extra use; you can use the dimensional look to make these shingles look like other materials such as cedar and slate. Architectural shingles also weigh more than three-tab shingles, so they have a higher wind rating of around 80-120 mph.
Are Architectural Shingles Better than 3-Tab?
Well, that, of course, depends on your roofing preferences. If you want the cheapest option, then three-tab shingles are going to be the pick for you. However, if you're okay with the extra price, then there are a lot of reasons that architectural shingles will be the better choice for you. For instance, if you want a more durable and higher windproofed shingle for extra protection for your home, then architectural shingles are the better choice for you. Architectural shingles are almost twice as thick as three-tab shingles, and the windproof rating is twice as good at 120 mph. If you also want the flexibility to make your shingles look like a more premium material, architectural shingles have a multi-dimensional look and a unique composition to make that happen (for materials like cedar, slate, etc.).
What is an Architectural Shingle Made of?
Architectural shingles, also known as laminated/dimensional shingles, are made of ceramic-coated minerals in a fiberglass mat that's surrounded by asphalt. Architectural shingles have a lower portion that's laminated and an additional asphalt layer compared to three-tab shingles. An asphalt sealant bonds the different layers and offers a waterproof quality. These qualities cause architectural shingles to be more durable and have a windproof rating of up to 120 mph
