How to Choose the Right Roofing Shingles:

If you need roofing shingles, you have a lot to consider.  In an effort to stay ahead of the competition, shingle manufacturers continue to offer new options for your roof.

  1. Style The traditional three-tabbed asphalt roofing shingle is now available in more colors than ever, but homeowners have demanded more choice and manufacturers have responded with laminated roofing shingles in shapes and styles to beautify any home.
  1. 2. Designer Shingles – Laminated layers gives depth to a shingle and, when combined with different shingle shapes and tab placements, you can get a variety of designer looks for your roof.
  1. 3. The Look Without the Cost –
o Regarded by many to be the finest roofing material, there is no mistaking the distinctive style of a slate roof. Now you can have the same look for your home, at a more reasonable price, with premium slate-styled shingles.
o You can also have the warm look of a cedar shake roof, with the durability and lower cost of traditional shingles.
  1. Warranty Roofing shingle warranties are almost as varied as the shingles they protect.  Make sure you understand your warranty before choosing a particular shingle or roofing contractor.
  1. 5. Basic Warranty o Depending on cost and quality, the warranty time-period for shingles can vary, usually from 15 to 40 years, but many shingles now have lifetime warranties.
o Some warranties only cover the cost of the roofing shingles and not the labour cost of repairing or replacing the old roof.
  2. 6. Warranty Options:

Wind warranty – The shingles on homes located in windy areas should be guaranteed to resist the wind speeds around the home.

Algae-resistant warranty – Algae can discolor your roof and many shingles are warranted to resist algae growth.

Impact resistance – Your shingles might be hit by flying debris and many shingles are rated to resist being damaged by the impact.

Know Your Roofing Materials and Get a Better Roof

When they think of roofing materials, most people start and stop with asphalt shingles. It’s true, without shingles you don’t have much of a roof, but they are only the topmost of three layers of materials that keep you and your family warm and dry.

  1. Roof Deck – The base of your roof, the roof deck is fastened to the trusses and/or joists that support your roof. Plywood sheets are by far the most popular material for roof decks.
  1. Underlayment – it’s not a pretty word, but it’s a very important roofing material. The underlayment is the layer of material between the deck and the shingles. Commonly saturated with asphalt, your roof underlayment gives extra protection against moisture and helps to seal any spaces in the roof deck
  2. Asphalt Shingles – The most popular roof finishing material, asphalt shingles are available in a variety of designs, colors and warranties.
  1. 4. Shingle Designs – Consumer demand and different architectural styles have resulted in a wide range of shingle designs.
  1. 5. Traditional Three-tab Shingles Still the favorite, available in a range of colors
o Designer Shingles – Manufacturers have developed processes to laminate roof shingle materials to add depth to the traditional flat shingle. The result is a range of new looks for your roof.
o Premium Architectural Shingles – Have the look of more expensive slate
  1. 6. Warranties – Traditional asphalt shingle warranties range from 15 to 45 years, but some shingles now have a lifetime warranty.
o Make sure you understand your shingle warranty. Some warranties only cover roofing materials and not the cost of replacing the shingles.
