Roof shingles are the most popular choice for American homeowners. Shingles go on your roof in overlapping layers to enhance their weatherproofing and waterproofing capabilities. Shingles form the uppermost layer of your roof and cover a layer of waterproofing material. In today’s blog post, Rosemeyer Roofing explains what style of roof shingles is right for you when selecting the kind of roof you want on your building.
Asphalt Roof Shingles
More than 80 percent of homes in North America have asphalt roof shingles due to their ease of installation, affordable pricing, lightweight construction, and quality materials. Asphalt shingles are made of durable, bendable material. These shingles usually come in earth tones, such as brown, gray, green, or black. As manufacturing methods have improved, roofing companies have expanded options for asphalt roof shingles that come in a range of shapes and textures, such as architectural shingles, diamond shapes, and shingles that mimic the look of beautiful tiles.

Three-Tab Roof Shingles
Three-tab roof shingles are standard shingles that go on American homes. These shingles have a rectangular shape, and installers lay them out in overlapping patterns over your entire roof. Three-tab shingles are also one of the easiest to install due to their widespread use as a common roofing material for residential homes.
Tile Roof Shingles
Roof shingles also come in tiles, which are made of clay, cement, or even stone. Tiles, like asphalt shingles, overlap each other for maximum effectiveness. Tiles are more substantial and thicker than asphalt shingles. Your roof must be structurally sound enough to handle tiles since they can weigh two or three times more than asphalt roof shingles. Our team can assess your roof or make structural improvements if you want beautiful, sturdy tiles on your roof.
Wood Roof Shingles
Wood roof shingles are perfect for a vintage look. They have special considerations, as you might find moss growing on them if the conditions are right. Wood shingles can last anywhere from 30 to 50 years if you take care of them properly. Wood is an eco-friendly choice because the material is a renewable resource.
