The most common type of residential roofing material is the shingle roofing system. Shingles are usually made from an asphalt mixture, but can also be made of wood, slate, or synthetic materials. Wood shingles are beautiful and long-lasting, but they are more expensive than traditional shingles. Architectural shingles are higher quality than traditional 3-tab shingles but are still considerably less than wood shingles.

The Benefits of a Shingle Roof Installation
Shingles are one of the most inexpensive roofing solutions you can use and have a fairly long life of 10-15 years with proper maintenance. While the life is not as long as some choices, such as tile or metal roofing, shingle roofs cost a fraction of the price of other systems. Shingle roofs are installed over an underlayment that helps protect against UV rays and environmental factors such as the wind, water, and heat, and can also help repel and prevent mold and moss growth.
Shingle roofs can be damaged in extreme weather. Inspect your roof after storms to catch any storm damage. Signs of possible storm damage include debris, denting from hail, and water seepage. Any repairs should be made as quickly as possible to minimize damage and expense. Depending on the type and severity of the damage, you might be able to make some minor repairs, but some roof damage can only be repaired with a new shingle roof installation. Shingle roofs also require regular maintenance to ensure you get the longest life possible. Common problems with shingle roofs include curled or warped shingles, bare or thinning spots where the asphalt has come loose and flashing separation at places like chimneys and skylights. These are easily spotted and easily repairable problems if taken care of early.
