Shingle Roofing Services
There are many different types of shingles in the roofing industry. Roof shingles are a roof covering consisting of individual pieces overlapping one another. These pieces are often flat, rectangular shapes. The types of roofing shingles available differ based on size, shape, color, thickness and material. Roof shingles are a very common roofing material in the United States, but may deteriorate faster and need to repel more water than wall shingles. Here we’ll help explain the different types of shingle roofing available for residential roofs.
Asphalt shingles are one of the most widely used roofing materials on the market today. Asphalt shingles that are used on residential shingle roofs are also referred to as steep slope roofs. The asphalt shingle has advanced since its creation to its current day types, styles, shapes, colors, and sizes. The reason we call them asphalt shingles is because they are primarily composed of asphalt. We offer two type of asphalt shingles:
The lower portions of these shingles are laminated with an additional asphalt layer. This is what creates the contoured, dimensional look–and gives them their name. The asphalt sealant reinforces these shingles’ waterproof capability by bonding the layers together.
Three-tab shingles are distinguished by cutouts (tabs) made along their long, lower edge. The results are that each shingle appears to look like three separate pieces when installed, but it’s actually only one! Three-tab shingles are still the most popular shingles today. It is no wonder they’ve been around a long time.
