Shingles are a popular type of roof as they are know for their durability and great look. Shingles are rectangular shapes laid in courses from the bottom edge of the roof up, with each successive course overlapping the joints below.
Shingles are made of various materials such as wood, slate, synthetic slate, metal, plastic, and composite materials such as asphalt shingles.
Architectural shingles, which are commonly known as laminated or high-definition shingles, offers homeowners an option for a three-dimensional look similar wood shake roof system but still has the qualities and price of an asphalt shingle roof.
Architectural shingles are your most common residential roof type and can be found everywhere you look in your neighborhood. Architectural shingles come in several color options to meet all of your needs. Shingles are not designed to be installed on roof pitches less than 3/12.
Wood Shingles and Cedar Shakes, which are commonly confused, are actually different from one another and must be installed differently from one another. Wood shingles and cedar shakes offer the traditional shingle look, but note there are limitations on when these shingles can be installed and are not practical for all applications.
Slate is a natural rock material that can be fabricated into the shape of shingle that can last for up to 100 years from the original date of installation. Slate is available in multiple colors and widths which makes each slate roof unique from another.
Due to its weight, structures must be properly designed to withstand the weight of slate shingles so it may not be appropriate for all buildings.
If natural slate shingles do not fit your budget but you still are looking for the slate shingle look, there are other options available to you. Synthetic slate, also known as composite slate, is available to provide the look of a traditional slate roof at a lower-cost and also does not come with any weight restrictions since these are a synthetic material and not the real thing. Synthetic slate is also available in multiple colors and widths to meet exactly what you are looking for.
