What Are Roof Shingles?

Roof shingles are just one element that makes up a residential roofing system and acts as a roof covering. The shingle is typically made of asphalt, fiberglass mat, and ceramic-coated granules. They're often installed in overlapping layers or courses. When installed as part of a complete roofing system, shingles help protect your home from water infiltration.

Shingles are generally rectangular in shape for a consistent look, although some are more irregular to appear handcrafted. Shingles are used as the primary water-shedding material, and they may be made out of many different types of materials, including asphalt, metal, wood, clay, concrete, and slate.

Types of Asphalt Shingles:

  • Three-tab: A common type of asphalt shingle is called a three-tab. These single-layer shingles offer a uniform, flat appearance and are made of a fiberglass mat coated with asphalt. Each piece is cut into three equal sections or tabs—hence its name. This is the most economical roofing choice.
  • Architectural: Architectural shingles, like GAF Timberline® HDZ™, are made of multiple layers of asphalt-coated fiberglass that are laminated together. They're also cut differently from the three-tab option, giving the shingle a variation in style and a more three-dimensional look. When installed with the required combination of 4 qualifying GAF Accessories, GAF architectural shingles with LayerLock™ Technology qualify for the WindProven™ limited wind warranty*, the industry's first wind warranty with no maximum wind speed limitation.
  • Designer: These shingles are made just like other asphalt shingles, but they come in different colors and are designed to mimic the look of cedar, slate, or wood shake shingles.

Getting your roof replaced is no small undertaking, and many consumers want to know when it's better to repair or just replace it. Generally, you want to replace asphalt roofs about once every 20 years. However, if there is evidence of serious roofing failures such as improper roofing ventilation or shingles sliding off, or if your roof has sustained serious storm damage, then you'll probably need your roof replaced sooner. A roofing contractor will be able to assess the condition of your roof and recommend whether to replace the whole roof or just make repairs.

Absolutely. Our two founders, Colby Strickland and Conner Craft, have an extensive background working as commercial roofing contractors. Commercial properties are just as susceptible to aging and storm damage as residential ones, and if your business needs a new roof, we'll be there to help.

Certainly! Shingled roofs are our specialty. There are three types of shingles we primarily work with: three-tab, the most common and most economical type of asphalt shingle; architectural shingles, which are made of multiple layers of asphalt-coated fiberglass laminated together; and designer shingles, which can mimic the look of other materials such as wood shake or slate. We can, and most typically do, replace like-for-like, but if you're thinking about using a different type of asphalt shingles for your roof, ask us about what options would work for your roof.

Absolutely. If anything, we'd say that's the number one service we provide our customers. Insurance companies typically don't like letting go of their money, and trying to prove storm damage without an expert opinion to back you up can result in a lot of stressful and fruitless back-and-forth between you and your insurance company.

We've been there, and we've seen the kind of struggles people have had to undergo to get their claims taken care of before. We don't want our clients to undergo that stress, especially when they're still reeling from the aftermath of a storm. We fully document all the damage we see on your roof and advocate on your behalf to your insurance company. With our expert opinion backing up your claim, you're more likely to get a payout a lot quicker and without too much fuss.
