Different Types of Shingles
Here are a few types of shingles:
- Asphalt Shingles
- Wood Shingles
- Metal Shingles
- Tile Shingles
Asphalt shingles are generally the most frequently used because of how inexpensive they are. Even though they’re inexpensive, they may last you 20-30 years. Wood shingles are known for their natural appearance. They are a little bit more expensive than asphalt shingles, but if you were to choose a hardwood, it could last you for about 30-50 years. Metal shingles are becoming fairly popular in many areas of the country, but only look appropriate for homes that have a steep or flat roof. If you choose to have this type of shingle, it could last you for a good 50 years. Tile shingles are some of the most expensive to purchase because of their unique appearance. Lasting for more than 50 years, tile shingles are one of the most durable materials on the market.
