Types of Roofing Shingles

Roofing shingles come in a wide variety of materials that have their own benefits and drawbacks. All roofing shingles are designed to protect a home from the elements and provide some amount of insulation, but different materials specialize in different functions. Some materials are of higher quality than others, but they may also be more expensive.

Shingle Materials

Roofing shingle materials each come with their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Asphalt shingles are the most common type of shingling. They are inexpensive, fire resistant, and easy to repair, but they have a relatively short lifespan and are vulnerable to moss and mildew. Other common single materials include:

  • Wood
  • Slate
  • Metal
  • Clay

Wood shingles weather to a nice color, but are not very fire resistant. Slate shingles last the longest, but are also heavier and more expensive than most other types. Metal shingles are environmentally friendly, but are difficult to install. Clay shingles are low-maintenance, but are known to break easily. A professional roofer will be able to recommend a roofing material to you based on your particular needs and budget.

I first became acquainted with Zane Nixon, owner of AAA Mustang Roofing, when our metal roof was severely damaged in a hailstorm. Our house is large and has over 30 separate roof surfaces, with an equivalent number of edges and valleys. Zane and his crew completed the work in less than two weeks, and it is flawless. They even repaired several areas that suffered structural damages.

Just recently a flash flood on the day following hurricane Hermine caused significant damage to the first story of the house. I called Zane and he was here within 30 minutes and stayed until midnight. Using squeegees, towels and a shop vacuum, we managed to save the rugs and furniture. However, the walls required substantial repairs. Zane worked closely with our insurance adjuster, and the wall repair work under his guidance as contractor is every bit as professional as his previous work.

I recommend AAA Mustang without reservation for any type of construction or remodeling job.
