Install or Repair All Types of Roof Shingles with A D Roofing
Different Types of Roof Shingles Available
What is great about today’s roofs is that there is a vast array of options when it comes to materials. Depending on where you live, the climate, your preferences, and the needs of your home, you can choose from a variety of material options. This also gives you great versatility in choosing the right type of roof shingle.
Here are just a few of the most common types out there:
- Asphalt shingles: These come in both organic asphalt and fiberglass. They both have the asphalt exterior but have a different type of base.
- Pros: These are probably the most common type of roofing materials because they are effective and of good quality. They are relatively inexpensive, come in a variety of colors, and are easy to install. They last a good 10 to 20 years if properly installed, and can withstand most weather.
- Cons: The granules on fiberglass shingles can be susceptible to some storm damage and can be prone to warping. Organic asphalt shingles might also have inferior fire protection.
- Slate: This can be a popular choice for people looking for extra aesthetic appeal.
- Pros: They are long-lasting, durable, and provide a very refined and attractive quality. They are also very low maintenance and very resistant to harsh weather. If you choose to install a slate roof, this will add great resale value to your home.
- Cons: The tile itself is slightly more expensive and is a little more labor intensive.
- Tile: This is a classic roof shingle that is very attractive and adds a very unique style to your home.
- Pros: With tile shingles, you are getting a tile that is built to last more than 100 years. These are long-lasting shingles that come in a variety of color choices, require low maintenance, and are energy efficient.
- Cons: These type of shingles are quite heavy and are a little pricier.
- Wood: These types of shingles are quite unique and give a certain romantic quality to your home.
- Pros: They can be made from a variety of different woods and colors. There is a lot to choose from and can add some resale value to your home if well cared for.
- Cons: In very wet areas, the shingles can degrade faster. Treating your shingles becomes very important. If not cared for, they might attract insects. These shingles require maintenance and work.

Which Roof Shingle is Best for Me?
So out of the many options available, which roof shingle is best for your home? This is an important question and it might help to speak to a professional for sound advice. There are a few things you can consider, however, that might help you make a decision. Some of the factors that play into homeowner’s decision about this matter include:
- Cost: This is a big defining factor. The good news is, even the most affordable option does not mean that there is a loss of quality. Today’s roof shingles are engineered to last long and sustain a good amount of damage. Consider your budget, what you want to spend, and where you draw the limit.
- Style: You might be trying to remodel your home for yourself or for a resale. This might play into what kind of roof you install. Certain roof shingles will add great resale value.
- Durability: How long do you plan to live in the home? Perhaps you plan on being in the home for only a limited amount of time and sticking with the more affordable option might work for you.
