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 They haven't been used much in recent years and have gradually been replaced by more modern styles.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.
After How Many Years Should You Replace Your Shingle Roof?
If you have not replaced your roof in the past several decades, it may be time for you to replace your roof. Most asphalt shingles will last between 15-25 years under optimal conditions. Most of Iowa has experienced several hail storms in the past few years, which leads roof replacements. If your roof has had a lot of environmental traffic such as hail, branches and leaves from overhead trees, etc., it can wear out faster than usual. Granules fall off, the asphalt becomes brittle and cracks, high winds can rip the mastic seal apart and tear tabs off the shingle, especially on three-tab roofs.
Roofs are one of those things that we don't think about until they need replacing - which is usually when there's an emergency situation like water pouring into our house! But if you're noticing any signs that your roof needs replacing soon (or even better yet before), contact us for a free estimate today! We'll come out to do an inspection with no obligation so you know what you're getting into before signing anything up for replacement work.
Can You Repair a Shingle Roof on Your Own?
Well, that depends on the state and age of your roof. A newer roof has material with better integrity and can possibly handle a repair without being compromised. A shingle roof is comprised of many components that stick together and seal out the weather. If you go to patch it - especially on an older, brittle roof, you can cause more issues! Your best course of action would be calling Cook Roofing Company for a free estimate. We'll give you honest and thorough advice about your options in repairing or replacing your shingled roof! We'll also help you file your insurance claim, so the only thing you'll have to pay for your roof repair will go towards your deductible!
