Types Of Shingle Roofs

There are a lot of different types of shingles out there. When most people hear “shingle roof,” they are typically thinking about asphalt shingles. And chances are, that’s what you have on your home or business. The next most common roofs are 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 Shingle Roofs

Most asphalt shingle roofs these days use a composition laminated shingle – usually a fiberglass mat embedded with an asphalt compound, and granules. The main way they differ is in style and thickness.

3 Tab Shingle Roofs

Three-tab shingles (3-tab) are an older style, and have the familiar staggered rectangle – brick – pattern. These aren’t used much anymore, and have been gradually replaced with more modern looking styles. If you have a 3-tab roof and insurance writes it for replacement, they may write an estimate for replacement with 3-tab shingles. Most people just upgrade to architectural shingles for a small additional cost.

Architectural Shingle Roofs

The most common shingles in use now are dimensional architectural shingles, aka laminated composite shingles. These have a staggered look, more like wood shake roofs, and often have varied color to give them even more dimensional appearance.

Impact Resistant Shingles

The idea is that these shingles are resistant to, or impervious to, impacts from hail and other objects (tree branches, etc). In reality, even impact-resistant shingles sometimes get damaged by hail. But in our experience, sometimes insurance will not pay for hail damage to impact-resistant shingles. Our opinion is that your money would be better saved for use as a deductible in the event that your roof is ever hit by hail, rather than spending the extra money on these shingles. But some local roofing companies will try to sell you on them anyway.

Wind Rated Shingles

All shingles have a wind rating. But some areas of the country have requirements for certain wind ratings, such as the central and southern US Atlantic and Gulf coastal areas. Most architectural shingles are rated up to 110 mph (Owens Corning OakRidge are an example), but some are up to 130/150 mph such as Owens Corning Duration line. The Springfield MO area does occasionally get straight line winds and gusts over 100 mph, but they are not generally sustained like in a hurricane. And if a 200+ mph tornado is nearby, shingles might not really be your main concern. No shingles are rated that high.

High Profile, Scalloped, or Other Designer Shingles

There are a lot of designer shingles – some have L shapes, some have scallops, some look like slate, etc. These come at a premium but are still less costly than actual slate tile roofs. If you’re interested in these types of shingle, Cook Roofing Company can help you explore your options.

Is it Time for You to Replace Your Shingle Roof?

Do you have an asphault roof? If so, have you had it for more than three decades? Well, you may be need of a roof repair. 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 Texas has experienced 5-10 hail storms just over the past few years, and this tends to prompt roof replacements. The best way to protect your home from these hazards is by replacing your old roof with a new one that meets current building codes for wind resistance and water penetration protection standards as well as energy efficiency requirements for heating/cooling costs savings. You’ll also get an added layer of insulation against noise pollution from outside sources like trains or airplanes overhead! We offer free consultations so call us today at 915-975-7321 to schedule yours!

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. It’s always better safe than sorry! Call Cook Roofing Company today at 915-975-7321 if you want us to inspect your roof! We offer free inspections and estimates, so call now!

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.
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.
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.
