Most residential roofing materials will last for 20 years, at which point they will need to be replaced. If you’re thinking about scheduling a roof replacement for your home, you might be wondering what type of roofing material you should install. Asphalt shingle roofing materials are incredibly popular for residential roofing, and the staff at Covenant Roofing offers professional installation for several different types of asphalt shingles.
Different Types Of Asphalt Shingles
Not all types of asphalt shingles are the same. Some of them are more resistant to storm damage than others, and they can vary in price range. Here are some details about the three most common types of asphalt shingles.
3 Tab Shingles
3 Tab shingles are easy and inexpensive to install, making them the most common choice for residential roofing products. The shingles are wide and have three tabs cut into the lower half. This creates the illusion of three shingles instead of one.
If you live in an area of the county that has strong winds, you may need a roofing material that is a bit stronger than typical asphalt roofing shingles. Architectural shingles are made of two layers of fiberglass and asphalt roofing materials, making them heavier and harder for the wind to blow off your roof.
Impact Resistant Shingles
For homes that see multiple hail storms every year, impact resistant shingles are the way to go. They are unlikely to be damaged by even the largest hailstones. In fact, this roofing material is so good at protecting your home, some insurance companies will give discounts on premiums if you install them on your roof.
