Are you in the market for the best roof shingles? While you’re likely unaware that there are multiple types of shingles – and that some are better than others – there is plenty of information available to assist you in your decision-making process. Popular roofs come in many varieties including tin roofs, wooden roofs, and traditional shingled roofs, but each of them comes with a long list of pros and cons and recommendations from different professionals. There are also different types of shingles and roofs specifically recommended for different climates, including the north Georgia and Atlanta areas that are often subject to harsher elements than other places throughout the United States. Homeowners need to choose shingles that are durable, provide lasting protection, and will not break during extreme winds, heavy storms, hail, and high heat and humidity. But, with many different options on the market, making an informed decision often requires research and recommendations from a trusted professional. Let’s explore the best shingle options, and see what Roofwell recommends to make sure your home is properly protected through all conditions and all seasons.
What Are The Best Roof Shingles For Residential Use?
From architectural asphalt shingles to terracotta clay roofing shingles, what is the best option? While shingle options have definitely evolved over the years, they have been utilized to protect homes and shelters from the elements since ancient days. You might not know the difference between all of them, but each type of shingle will provide a different level of protection and style for your roof. While shingle choice can be individual to a homeowner, Roofwell recommends using a 3-Tab builder grade or three-dimensional architectural shingles to provide protection for your roof. Roofwell’s offerings include shingles made with Time-Release Algae-Fighting Technology that protects a roof from even the toughest blue-green algae stain for years to come. Infused with copper microsites, this algae fighting technology releases copper steadily over time, providing unmatched defense against microorganisms that can grow on your roof. Additionally, these shingles come with a 25-year StainGuard Plus™ Algae Protection Limited Warranty that guarantees both protection and aesthetic value for your roof. Additionally, while aesthetic value might not be top-of-mind when it comes to replacing a roof, it is important to consider what will be attractive to a future buyer in the event you choose to sell your home, and Roofwell provides options that are both attractive and practical.
Another popular option is three-dimensional architectural shingles because they provide lasting protection against the rough winds, hail, and storms in the southern area of the country. Architectural shingles are traditionally more substantial, and typically 50% heavier than regular shingles and provide exceptional durability when it comes to roof protection. They are among the highest-quality roofing products available and are made with tough, well-constructed materials that provide unparalleled durability and long-lasting protection for your roof. They also come with a limited lifetime warranty against manufacture defects, 130 mile-per-hour wind rating, along with a 10-year algae warranty.
How To Choose The Right Shingles
While choosing shingles for your roof is ultimately a personal decision, it is strongly recommended to take advice from a licensed roofing professional before committing to any type of roofing. Choosing the right shingles can guarantee superior protection for your home, and in the long run, choosing quality shingles will save you time, money, and effort and give you peace of mind that your roof is functioning properly.
