Selecting the Right Type of Shingles for Your Home

 In Blog

As a homeowner, you have enough to worry about with your day-to-day life. When it’s time for a new roof, you want to make it as easy as possible. There are several things to consider when selecting your shingles.

Consider your local climate:

Wind: If you’re in a windy area, choose shingles with warranty coverage for blow-offs in high winds.

Hail: Opt for shingles that pass impact resistance tests if you’re in a hail-prone region.

Energy Efficiency: In hot climates, cool roof shingles reflect sunlight to keep your attic cooler, potentially reducing cooling costs. In colder regions, less reflective shingles may be better.

Warranty Coverage: Look into warranty options. Most manufacturers’ shingles come with a lifetime limited warranty, and some even have wind warranties with no maximum wind speed limitation.

Shingle Style:

Architectural Shingles: Deliver enhanced aesthetics with multiple layers for depth and dimension.

Designer Shingles: Offer unique patterns and textures.

Aesthetics and Home Style:

Consider the overall look of your home. Different shingle styles complement various architectural designs.
