What are Asphalt Shingles?
Asphalt shingle is a roofing material that uses asphalt for waterproofing. It is one of the most common shingle types in North America. Asphalt shingles are available in a wide range of shapes and colors. If your residential property has a sloped roof, the chances are that you will be considering installing asphalt shingles at some point. There are, in essence, two categories of asphalt shingles: organic and fiberglass. Organic asphalt shingles consist of paper and a coat of asphalt. A fiberglass asphalt shingle is a layer of random-laid glass fibers that are bonded with urea-formaldehyde resin that also has an asphalt coat. Fiberglass asphalt shingles are by far the most common category. Keep reading to learn more about asphalt shingles, their benefits, and to find out if this is the most suitable roofing material for you.
Different Types of Shingles
There are three types of asphalt shingles available:
- Dimensional shingles
- Strip shingles
- Luxury shingles
To choose the best asphalt shingle for your roof, you have to understand the difference between these three types.
Dimensional shingles are also called architectural or laminate shingles. A dimensional shingle consists of two layers of asphalt and often has the appearance of wood or slate. Dimensional shingles are typically more substantial than other types and have improved warranty protection.
Strip shingles are conventional asphalt shingles. Unlike dimensional asphalt shingles, strip shingles only consist of one layer of asphalt, which means that it is thinner, lighter, and more affordable than dimensional shingles. Strip shingles are more suitable to lower-cost home construction or as a material for roofs that already have a layer of shingles. Strip shingles look similar to slate.
If you want a high-quality roofing material that is durable and that closely resembles traditional wood shake or quarried slate, you may want to consider luxury shingles. It is at the highest quality of all asphalt roofing options. Luxury shingles weigh more than dimensional shingles and offer better longevity and protection against the elements. This type of asphalt shingle is also the most expensive.
What is Metal Roofing?
Metal roofing is typically associated with industrial or commercial structures. Metal roofing is also a popular option for residential property owners, as it is one of the most cost-effective roofing materials over the long run.
Different types of metal roofing
There are three metal roofing panel styles:
- Standing Seam, which consists of metal panels that are locked together using a seam
- Exposed fastener metal roofing that has visible fastener heads
- Stamped profiles that offer textured surfaces and can take the shape of tiles, shakes, or shingles
Since metal roofing primarily consists of metal coils or sheets, it can be cut into various shapes and sizes.
The five most common metal roofing types include:
- Aluminum is a long-lasting metal that is resistant to corrosion
- Zinc, which has the lowest melting point and an incredibly long lifespan
- Copper, which is a soft roofing material that also lasts for many years
- Steel that is available in three variations: galvanized, galvalume, and weathering
- Tin is an older roofing type that is not commonly used anymore.
Each metal roofing type has its advantages and disadvantages, but, generally speaking, all metal roof types have most of the same benefits.
Advantages of Metal Roofing
Durability and Longevity
One of the most prominent advantages of metal roofing is that it is much more durable than conventional roofing materials. A run-of-the-mill metal roof can protect your home for up to sixty years. Since they have a longer lifespan than most other roofing material options, these roofs are also more affordable over the long run.
Low Maintenance Requirements
A modern metal roof features a hardened factory finish that makes it less susceptible to the damage of any kind. As a result, metal roofs are also less vulnerable to harsh weather conditions than conventional roofing options like clay tiles.
