This is the most economical shingle on the market. Considered a 20-25yr shingle. The advantage of this shingle is the lower cost and the disadvantage is that they tend to be the most prone to wind damage.
30 YEAR SHINGLES:
The dimensional shingle is the most common shingle on the market today. The shingle is rated as a 30-40yr shingle. It's much heavier in weight than the 3-tab and stands up to the elements much better.
LIFETIME DIMENSIONAL SHINGLES:
Lifetime asphalt shingles are similar to the popular 30-40yr dimensional shingles. However, they are heavier and thicker and come in different design patterns. Most are impact resistant.
ENERGY EFFICIENT ROOFS:
This is a fairly new shingle to the roofing industry. Same as the dimensional in look and appearance. However, this shingle is an "Energy Star" rated shingle qualifying for up to a $1,500 government rebate.
WOOD SHAKE SHINGLES:
Wood Shakes offer a natural look with character due to the variation in color, width, and cut of wood. Shakes offer some energy savings but demand proper maintenance and repair. Shakes can provide a beautiful look for many years.
CONCRETE TILE ROOFS:
Tile can have a lifespan greater than the structure under it and require very little maintenance to maintain. Tile is also available in a variety of colors and styles. However, be careful, as tile requires a properly built structure to support its heavy weight.
Metal Roofs have become popular in recent years. The most popular pictured to the left is a standing seam metal roof. These metal roofs come in various colors and designs and are very durable, fire resistant, and almost maintenance free.
