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.

I cannot recommend My Florida Roofing Contractor-Rene Reyes highly enough! As our roof was reaching its 20-year mark, we decided to entrust My Florida with the task, and we couldn't be more pleased with the experience.

From start to finish, the entire process was seamless and impressive. The roof passed its final inspection just a week after the work commenced, a testament to the efficiency and quality of their work. The crew's service and work ethic were truly outstanding, and their teamwork and attention to detail were remarkable.

Throughout the project, I was kept informed of every step, ensuring that I was always in the loop. The crew's professionalism shone through not only in their work but also in how diligently they cleaned up after themselves. To top it off, the roof was completed by the end of the second day, showcasing their commitment to timeliness and excellence.

Dan, who was present throughout the entire process, deserves special commendation for his professionalism and the smooth flow he brought to the project. Working with him was a pleasure and ensured that everything went according to plan.

In conclusion, My Florida Roofing Contractor-Rene Reyes exceeded our expectations in every way. If you're looking for a reliable, efficient, and professional roofing contractor, look no further. Thank you to the entire team for a job well done!
