Asphalt shingles are manufactured from asphalt and, usually come in either organic or fiberglass. The shingles are offered in a wide range of color schemes, sizes and styles to choose from based on your needs. Asphalt shingles are more economical, with greater energy saving features. But, they are only great for use on sloppy roofs.
The most common colors and styles of asphalt shingles that include, charcoal, barkwood, slate and weathered wood. Compared to organic asphalt shingles, fiberglass asphalt shingles are more affordable, fire and UV rays-resistant, light in weight and, long lasting. Fiberglass asphalt shingles are made from mineral fillers, which enable them to also withstand water intrusion.
Originally, organic asphalt shingles were made from recycled papers, cardboards, wood chips and rags. Although they are not as durable and light weight as fiberglass asphalt shingles, organic asphalt shingles are also waterproof and affordable. If you are considering using organic asphalt shingles, keep in mind they are not usually great in humid areas or places that experience very low temperatures.
Other options that you can also consider when planning to use asphalt shingles are the architectural and three-tab shingles. If installed right, asphalt shingles can last for about 20 to 30 years, without regular maintenance.
Tile shingles are very stylish, making them a great option for those who need to enhance the aesthetics of their property. Tile shingles are offered in a variety of shapes and, light color schemes to bring out a unique touch of style. Although they are considered relatively costly, they usually have a longer lifespan of up to 80 years. Besides, it should also be noted that tile shingles are heavier than asphalt shingles. This means, replacing them with asphalt shingles will require the roofing frame to be re-designed to cater for the additional weight.
Of all the commonly used shingles, slate shingles have the longest lifespan of up to ten decades if they are installed correctly. Besides, they are crated with unique properties that can effectively withstand damage and water intrusion. Slate shingles can be obtained in color schemes of green, red, grey and black. Considering all these features, they are also quite costly and heavier.
Metal shingles are also quite durable, with a life expectancy of up to 50 years. Those made from low galvanized metals are usually affordable and resistant to various forms of environmental and weather damage. Metal shingles can be obtained in either copper, zinc, tin or aluminum. They are ideal for use on flat and steep roofs but, can be very noisy when it’s raining.
