Advantages of Shingle Roofs

Asphalt shingle roofs are the most common residential roofing material. Styles include three-tab, architectural, and premium asphalt shingles. Below are some of the advantages of shingle roofs:

Shingle roofs are generally more affordable than many other roofing materials, such as metal or tile. This cost-effectiveness makes them an attractive option for budget-conscious homeowners and property owners.
Variety Of Styles and Colors

Shingles come in a wide range of styles, shapes, and colors, allowing for a high degree of customization. This variety means you can choose shingles that complement the architectural style and aesthetics of your building.

Quick Installation
The installation of shingle roofs is typically quicker, reducing the disruption to your daily routine.
High-quality shingles can have a long lifespan, often lasting 20 to 30 years or more with proper maintenance. When properly installed by an Antler Roofing expert, they are designed to withstand various weather conditions, including rain, wind, and moderate hail.
Low Maintenance
Shingle roofs are relatively low maintenance. Periodic inspections and minor repairs can help extend their lifespan, but they generally do not require extensive upkeep.
Energy Efficiency
Some shingle options are designed to reflect sunlight and heat, which can help improve the energy efficiency of your building. This can lead to lower cooling costs during hot weather.
In the event of damage, such as a shingle being blown off in a storm, it’s usually easy and cost-effective to replace individual shingles without needing to redo the entire roof.
Resale Value
A well-maintained shingle roof can add to the overall resale value of a property, making it a good investment for homeowners looking to sell in the future.

Keep in mind, the specific advantages of shingle roofs can vary depending on the type of shingles used (e.g., asphalt, wood, slate, or metal) and the quality of installation. Antler Roofing guarantees proper installation of your roof, maximizing its lifespan.

Types of Shingles We Install

When choosing which shingle type is best for your home, you can choose between three-tab, architectural, premium, and impact-resistant shingles. 

Three-tab Asphalt Shingles

Three-tab shingles remain a popular choice of shingle for homeowners today, due to their affordability. They get their name from their look – a flat shingle with three tabs. These shingles are light-weight and require less structural support than other shingle types.

Architectural Asphalt Shingles

Architectural shingles come in a variety of colors and provide a dimensional appearance.  The most popular shingle choice for homeowners, architectural asphalt shingles enhance curb appeal and are made with a high quality material, providing a 25-30 year lifespan.  

Class 4 Impact Resistant Shingles

Class 4 impact-resistant shingles stand up to damaging hail and debris, ultimately saving homeowners thousands of dollars on long-term maintenance and repairs.  Class 4 impact-resistant shingles offer a long lifespan and qualify homeowners for a reduction in their premium.

Premium Asphalt Shingles

These are the most high-end and luxurious types of asphalt shingles available.  Also known as designer shingles, premium asphalt shingles are designed to replicate the look and feel of natural materials like slate.
