Types of Roofing Shingles

Been wondering about the types of roofing shingles, and how to pick the right one. This information will be of interest…

“Different types of roofing shingles are used in installing roofs in home and office buildings these days. Broadly, architectural shingles come in two forms – asphalt and wood. Wooden shingles are not as common as they once used to be, and are confined to a tiny niche including ornamental roofing and expensive ornate construction projects with big budget owners.

Asphalt shingles are the preferred roofing material for most home owners, primarily because they are less expensive, readily available and can withstand the elements making it suitable for roofing even in homes where weather can be harsh and inclement. While estimates vary, asphalt roofing typically lasts for twenty to thirty years.”
