Commercial and Residential Shingle Roof
Shingle roofs are one of the most affordable and advantageous roofing sheets in the market. Choosing the right material to roof residential or commercial buildings plays a mammoth role in protecting a building.
Installing a new roof is a big investment for which you will need the right materials and a professional roofer for an impressive result. Before deciding on what roofing type you like best, it is important you know what you're dealing with and what you can expect from the types of roof shingles you choose.
Types of Roof Shingles
Different types of shingles have grown exponentially since they first hit the markets in the United States in the early 1900s. Today, home and business owners are open to a wide variety of shingles with different styles, colors, and sizes.
Asphalt shingles are by far the most popular roofing material for homes across the United States. There are many colors and designs for asphalt shingles, all of which are easy to install, cheap, and accessible. Their durability and visual appeal allow them to compare favorably against many other roofing types.
Asphalt shingles protect the house from natural forces like weather and rain while requiring minimal maintenance. It is typically made of a material mixture including sealant, fiberglass, granules, and release film.
Cedar roofs are popularly known for being aesthetically pleasing, which is why manufacturers also produce shingles that mimic the look of natural wood. Although not as popular as the asphalt roof, cedar shingles have some unique benefits which must not be overlooked.
Cedar shingles are environmentally friendly because they are organic and biodegradable.
One key disadvantage of cedar shingles is their short life span. On average, a cedar shingle lasts twenty to thirty years. They also cost significantly more to install and maintain.
Metal shingles are common for their long-lasting durability. Metal shingle roofing tiles can last for over 50 years and can withstand the horrors of nature without rotting, cracking, or weathering. They can be recycled, and it is common to install them over an existing roof.
Clay roofing tiles are exactly how they sound. They are made from clay and heated for a period of time. How long and the temperature they were heated at determines their density and durability. Notwithstanding, they are one of the most durable types of roof shingles.
While clay shingles add a unique appearance to any building, they can also cost anywhere from two to three times as much as the standard asphalt shingle roof.
Clay shingles are eco-friendly, require low maintenance, and are resistant to rot and mold, but they are brittle and unsuitable for some homes/ roof slopes.
