Understanding More About Roof Shingles

Roof shingles are necessary to keep a place dry and protected inside. The most common type of shingles that are used today is asphalt shingles, though there are other types of shingles as well.

Asphalt roof shingles are relatively easy for installing and they tend to be quite cost effective in comparison to other roofing options, such as slate, steel sheeting, metal cladding, etc.

When you are in need of roof shingles, it is best to get informed about the main features of the different types of shingles that you are considering.

This will help you to make the best choice that suits your needs. After all, you really do want to be able to select the roof shingles that will be the most appropriate for your home or building.

For homes, asphalt roof shingles have proven to be the preferred choice, as they make up more than 75 percent of the all roofing materials that are installed on homes. And the reality is that these shingles have improved immensely in the way that they have been constructed over the past 10 years. This means that they will be able to protect your home better. They are greener, which means they are better for the environment. And they give better energy performance. Solar reflective shingles help to reduce the temperature of the roof during the summer. Also, they are being crafted of recycled materials.

Note that there are two primary types of asphalt roof shingles, which are classified as being organic and fiberglass.

Shingles which are organic based are the oldest category of asphalt roof shingles. The part that is organic is a substrate of cellular fiber. Often this is paper which has been recycled, has been packed with asphalt and then has been compressed under extremely intense pressure. These shingles are much easier to install in cold weather than fiberglass asphalt shingles, and that is partly due to the fact that they are more flexible than fiberglass asphalt shingles. They are more tear resistant also.

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.
