Shingle Options For Your Roof Update

Your shingles are designed to protect your roof against the elements. When choosing a new roof, you can choose between traditional style, designer shingles, or architectural shingles. Architectural shingles have two or more layers of asphalt-coated fiberglass. They have a thicker coating of asphalt than traditional shingles.

When it comes to updating your roof, you have to weigh the pros and cons of your roofing material. At 180 Contractors, we can help guide you through your next remodel.

Structural Benefits

Architectural shingles are beneficial beyond the traditional 3-tab shingles. 3-tab shingles only have a single layer of asphalt-coated fiberglass. Installing them provides you with a stronger, more durable roof. Even with high-speed winds, your shingles are less likely to budge. The thickness decreases the risk of damage, and your roof may last longer than traditional roofing options. They also provide better wind warranties, some with no limit at all on maximum wind speed.

All roofing materials require maintenance, but asphalt is very low maintenance. We can regularly inspect your roof to ensure that there are no loose shingles or debris. The durability of architectural shingles may even reduce your home insurance costs.

Curb Appeal Benefits

Your home’s curb appeal is its visual attractiveness. While curb appeal is critical for selling homes, it can also be a point of pride. One of the benefits of architectural shingles is that we can choose from various design styles. You have your pick of color and style, allowing you to match your roof to your home’s aesthetic. Since they have a similar appearance to wood and slate tiles, they complement most housing styles nicely.

When you remodel your roof using architectural shingles, you benefit from durability, curb appeal, and more. At 180 Contractors, we are committed to roof replacements that cause as little disruption to your life as possible. Contact us today for a project estimate.
