Different types of shingle roof


Different types of Shingle Roofs –

Below are the different types of Shingle Roofs

  • Three Tab Shingle – Three-tab shingles are thin and inexpensive, but they have a lifespan of 25 years, but of course, it will be significantly less here in Florida. These shingles are suitable for homeowners on a budget or contractors building inexpensive homes. 3-tab shingles are not as attractive as the dimensional and luxury shingles. It can only withstand 60 – 97 MPH and will easily blow off. It also does not age well. It will still protect your home from the elements if you are on a budget.

  • Dimensional shingles have two layers of shingle material bonded together, giving them a three-dimensional appearance.
  • The difference between architectural shingles and three-tab shingles is that architectural shingles aren’t made with cutouts. They also contain extra asphalt, which gives it more curves than three-tab shingles.
  • Architectural Shingles will withstand winds from 100 – 130 mph
  • They will have better warranties than a three-tab
  • Last longer than three-tab

Wood Shingles

  • The price of wood shingles falls right between affordable asphalt shingles and more expensive tile shingles. Wood Shingles are tapered by sawing, whereas shake is not, so the result of a wood shake roof is highly textured by comparison.
  • Woods shingles are energy efficient
  • Last roughly  30 years
  • Environmentally friendlyOne of the most significant drawbacks of wood shingles is they’re more likely to catch fire than other shingle materials. The wood shingles’ installation process can be rather tricky for the untrained. Also, I want to take preventative measures to keep your roof from suffering from the ravages of termites and mold.Some repairs that come with owning wood shingles include cracked, missing, broken, or warped shingles. In most situations, you will need to replace the wood shingles because they can’t be repaired quickly.Always hire a licensed and insured roofing contractorhttp://www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/

My Florida roofing is an amazing company to deal with. The recently redid our roof from shingles to standing seem metal roof. It looks amazing. I got roughly about 10 quotes from the top roofers in Indian river county and they help educate me and showed me different options of material's for the new roof. Their team came in and stripped reroof the entire home in about week to do great weather. They strip and relapse before any rain could hit the exposed material. Rene and Maxine are such a pleasure to deal with. The are very upfront about everything and every detail that you speak with Rene about is backed up with written documentation so you know and see exactly what you are paying for. They also show and explain the different options to add on if you choose to. They are very quick to respond and answer any questions you may have in a timely matter. No doubt in my mind did I make the right decision going with My Florida Roofing. I recommend and would you use them again for any future projects. Again thank you Rene, Maxine and all of the team at My Florida Roofing for making a new roof process so quick and painless

The Reyes' were very friendly, accommodating and professional. Rene visited the site often to check on the work. The crew was professional friendly and efficient. We had our roof replaced, asphalt shingles to metal, almost a year ago now and still marvel at the look. The color matches perfectly with the house trim. I highly recommend MyFloridaRoofing.
