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 They haven't been used much in recent years and have gradually been replaced by more modern styles.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!
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.
Is it the Right Time to Replace Your Shingle Roof?
Your roof is wearing out. The average lifespan of a roof ranges from 15-25 years, depending on the quality and type of shingles you have installed. If your home has had hail storms or high winds in recent years, it may be time to replace your roof before it becomes even more damaged. Roofers are experts at installing new roofs for homes that need them. They can also repair any damage caused by weather or other factors that might make your current roof unsafe to live under anymore. You don't want to wait until there's a leak in your ceiling before you call someone - get an estimate today!
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 816-680-6996 for a free evaluation so you can know exactly how extensive the damage is and what to do.
