What Type of Roof Shingles Are Best?

It's Time for New Shingles

There are many home repairs you can put off calling Reno Roofing Services over, but damaged or missing roof shingles need to be replaced right away.

So the next question is, what type of shingles do I choose? There are a few factors at play here, especially cost and feasibility (given your home's climate and current condition). Let's review the most common shingles options for homeowners.

Installing Shingles in Reno, NV

Asphalt Shingles

This is the most popular roofing material around. Asphalt shingles are essentially made of fiberglass that is wedged between ceramic and asphalt granules.

They are fairly lightweight making them simple for roofers to install, and they look nice for the price.

Metal Roofing

There are some advantages to metal roofing. Like asphalt shingles, they are easy to install and are very lightweight. However they aren't as inexpensive and can be rather noisy.

Metal roofing comes in aluminum, steel, alloy stripes, and copper—the latter being the most expensive.

Fake Slate Roofing

If you're looking for a composite material that mimics real slate, this is your top solution.

It's compromised of a variety or things, like plastic and polymer, rubber or sometimes asphalt. Although it has been prone to fading and cracking more quickly, this is still the way to go if you want "slate" without paying real slate prices.
