From Shingles to Rubber

How many different kinds of roofs can you spot on the houses on your street? A few decades ago, you may have only seen shingle roofs, perhaps with the occasional slate roof mixed in. But these days, there are more kinds of roofing on the market. Metal roofs are becoming common because they can be made from recycled materials. Tile is a popular choice because it lasts a lot longer than other roofing materials. And then there are some roofers who install rubber roofs because they're smooth and easy to install.

Understanding The Benefits Of Shingle Roofing

Having a safe, secure roof above your head is one of the most important parts of owning a home. That said, understanding roofing dynamics isn't something that most homeowners put a lot of thought into when improving their homes. The truth is, it is easy to overlook a roof installation or a reroofing project since it isn't as flashy as a unique floor plan or the latest countertops. If you are looking for new roof options, you want an installation that will serve the basic purpose of protecting your home and also contribute to the overall curb appeal of your property. A shingle roofing installation not only appeals to aesthetic ideals but also ensures an investment that will protect your home for decades. Here's a breakdown of the benefits of shingle roofing. 


Standard shingles vary in terms of material, color, style, and price. They will also vary in durability, life span, and how they affect your insurance premium. Asphalt shingles make a great choice in single and multi-family residential construction and in areas with moderate climates. You are also likely to come across other shingle materials such as metal, wood, clay, slate, and more, depending on your area. One of the advantages of such a wide variety is that it guarantees that you will almost certainly find a roofing system that will match your home's theme and in a price range that works for you.

Easy Installation 

Most materials don't weigh much and are easy to install on any roof. Asphalt, composite, and metal shingles are ideal for a quick roof installation. Very little prep work is needed, and no special tools are required. You can use nails or roof cement to install shingles onto any roof pitch.


Your home's curb appeal is important, especially if you plan to sell down the line. Shingles are available in various colors, shapes, and textures to fit any architectural style and are visually flexible, even in neighborhoods with different roofing systems. They also add depth shadowing to your roof, increasing the visual appeal of your home.

If you are looking to replace or install a new roof, shingles make a great choice for both new installations and reroofing projects. They are available in a variety of materials. Consult qualified shingle roofing contractors to find the ideal shingles for your roof.
