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 was phenomenal, always on time and detail oriented. Very knowledgeable on the different types of roofs and options. Felix and Maria, picked up the phone immediately and always answered my questions. The owner Rene was on site frequently looking over the job. They were also the best priced and were even recommended by other roofing companies. Very happy with the outcome.

I definitely had a 5 Star experience with My Florida Roofing Contractors; and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who values working with an exceptional team of professionals. I needed a roof replacement and from the beginning, I found Felix Bello to be knowledgeable, responsive, client-focused, patient, thorough and a person of integrity. As I worked with other members of the team, like Maria Lopez, I learned these qualities were mirrored throughout the organization. What a great culture and excellent experience as a client.

I was consulted and kept informed of every stage of the process, no surprises!

That’s HOW they do business and WHAT they delivered was equally paramount and impressive. The installation was timely and everything passed inspections, no rework. The roof looks amazing, which has been validated by multiple compliments from neighbors. This was an outstanding experience with an outstanding outcome. A great return on investment—there aren’t enough of these! Thank you in spades!
