When you replace the roof on your home or business, roofers in Fort Lauderdale
will be able to use whichever type of shingles you choose to build your
new roof. Depending on what you want your roof to look like, your budget,
and how much
roof maintenance you’re willing to do, you can pick from any number of shingles.
To help you get started, here’s a look at some of the most common
types of shingles to choose from your new roof.
Asphalt shingles are the most common type of shingles for residential roofs.
Roofers can install them quickly, and they cost significantly less than
other types of roofing materials. You won’t have to do much roof
maintenance when it comes to asphalt shingles, and they are designed to
last between 20 and 30 years.
While wood shingles will cost you more than ones made out of asphalt, many
homeowners prefer them because they are more aesthetically pleasing than
other roofing options. Plus, they typically
last for between 30 and 50 years, especially if you decide to install shingles made out of hardwood.
If you have a roof that is either flat or very steep, you could benefit
from going with a metal roofing system. Metal roofs can last for up to
100 years, and some metal roofing systems even come with lifetime warranties.
They also don’t require much maintenance compared to other types
of roofing materials.
There’s a good chance that you will never experience a leaky roof
if you decide to install slate shingles. Slate is a very durable material
that will hold up under the toughest of weather conditions. Additionally,
slate will enhance the appearance of your home or business.
Tile shingles are expensive compared to other shingles, and some roofers
find them to be difficult to install. However, tile shingles will last
for up to 80 years. As long as your home has a strong enough structure
in place to support tile shingles, you will never have to worry about
replacing your roof again.
