Shingle roofing is the most popular type of roofing material in America. No matter where you travel, there will be a home or building with shingles. Florida is no exception to this rule. A potential homeowner can find shingle-equipped roofs anywhere from Miami to southwest Florida to the Panhandle. Shingle roofing is unique because there are so many types of shingles that you can use to make your home shine. There are many types of asphalt roof shingles. The most popular ones in Florida are the 3-tab, architectural, and slate roofing. Here’s a quick overview of all the roofing options in Florida, as well as some special features that make them stand out from one another.
3-Tab Roofing Shingles
This type of shingle roofing has the additional advantage of being the most affordable and cost-effective option and how easy it is to replace. It also requires less labor and is very easy to install. All these advantages allow us to charge less overall for your project. These products are not cheaper, but they offer the same quality. They are not as durable and wind-resistant as metal roofing or slate roofs, but they provide a high level of wind resistance protection of up to 100 MPH.
These products offer a perfect compromise between the 3-tab and slate shingle families. They combine the low price of 3-tab shingles with the durability, protection, and strength offered by slate shingle roofing. The extra laminate layer of protection that architectural shingles provide is not available in 3-tab shingles.
This adds weight and bulk to your roof and increases its wind resistance and durability. Architectural shingles have a lower rate of algae and other plant growth than 3-tab shingles. They also look more attractive, which will increase curb appeal and property value. Architectural shingles also resist curling which is a problem with lower quality shingle roofing designs. This allows you to save money on your roof by performing less maintenance and scheduling repairs.
Slate shingles are considered the best shingles because of their durability and protection against the elements. Shingles made of slate, like their architectural counterparts, are very effective at preventing algae growth and curling. However, they also provide greater wind resistance and durability. A slate roof can last up to 200 years in the best case. A properly maintained roof can last between 75 and 200 years. This is the best value in shingle roofing.
