Shingle roofing is available in multiple colours and sizes to suit a variety of home styles and designs. This can include multi-coloured roofs with naturalistic colour variations, or solid, one-color roofs. There are also multiple roofing shingle shapes available to compliment any architectural home design.
For over 100 years the 3-tab roof shingle has been the standard in roofing. Today, it is available in a variety of designs, colours and textures that will impress even the most discerning designer. The type of roof shingle your choose is just one of the many factors that impacts the cost of your new roof.
Many asphalt shingles have been developed in combination with fiberglass mats instead of the traditional felt mats, providing added strength and durability. As well, shingle roofing is inexpensive and one of the most common types of roofs used today. Shingle roofing products come with extensive warranties: Crown Roofing Specialist offers 25, 30, 40, 50 year and lifetime warranties on roof shingles.
The fact that they are “Green” products and come in a variety of types – 3 tab, architectural and fiberglass makes them one of the more popular roofing materials available.
Of special note is the growing popularity of fiberglass asphalt shingles. Lightweight, resistant to heat and humidity and particularly effective in cold climates such as Canada, fiberglass asphalt shingles have also become a popular replacement for asbestos roofing shingles.
Shingle roofing installation should be done properly the first time so that your home, your largest investment, is protected for the long haul. Choosing a shingle roofing company who understands this fact is critical
for a healthy and long-lasting roof.
Any roof material may be in need of repair from time to time. While missing shingles here and there may not bother some property owners, having your shingle roof occasionally inspected and/or repaired by professional roof repair contractors will increase your home’s resale value and reduce any risk of moisture intrusion.
Noticing broken, torn or missing shingles is a sign that the roof might need to be repaired or replaced. In some cases, the entire roof may not need to be replaced, only repaired. Any obvious deterioration or leaks are also signs that your shingle roof may be in need of repair.
