Read on to learn the perks that just might make you want a shingle roof for your home.

Architectural Shingle Roofs Are Long Lasting

A well-installed, properly maintained shingle roof has a lifespan 15-20 years, if not longer. Although every roof is different, a roof’s longevity is determined by the quality of shingle used and installation workmanship. Most roofing companies offer three different grades of shingles, all of which provide Class A fire protection. If you are looking for the longest-lasting shingle roof option, consider selecting a thicker shingle for your roof. Considered to be a “high-end” choice; their extra thickness makes them a superior selection for extreme weather. You will be happy with your choice during those brutal Florida thunderstorms and all throughout hurricane season. shingles most popular roofing material

The affordability of shingles is another reason they are the most popular roofing material on the market today. Shingles are easy to work with, which make for less complicated installations. Fewer complications means less time spent during installation and therefore, lower costs. In addition, many manufacturers offer a warranty on their shingles. These material warranties typically have terms of 25 years, with some having a prorated lifetime warranty. Also, R.I.G.
