Extremely popular in Phoenix, shingle roofs are the most common type of roof in the Valley. When built and installed by professionals, shingle roofs can be beautiful and durable.
Shingle roofs are a lot like tiles, which are spread over your roof in an overlapping manner. While many people are tempted to lay out the shingles on their roof themselves, it’s a job best left to the professionals. The elegance of shingle roofs sometimes comes across as uncomplicated, which might spur a DIY passion in some enthusiastic home owners. However, the process is more complicated, involving numerous factors, such as choosing shingle roofing material, properly installed underlay, deciding optimal tile size and how they should be placed.
These overlapping shingle roofing units come in various forms, each with their own advantages. We’ve listed the different options below.
Asphalt Shingle Roofs (Organic and Fiberglass)
Asphalt roofing shingles come in two forms: organic and fiber glass. Both are relatively affordable, require simple installation and are durable.
Organic roofing shingle is made from combining paper with asphalt, including adhesive asphalt, and clay particles are added to the top layer of the shingle. All organic shingles are water proof, and there are also those that are algae and moss-proof, which utilize copper coating.
Fiber glass roofing shingles are made by combining urea-formaldehyde resin with wet fiber glass. Like organic shingles, the asphalt coating makes fiber glass shingles water proof as well. Moreover, fiber glass shingle roofs are highly resistant to fire.
Polymer Shingle Roofing
Polymer roofing shingles are built from special chemicals, offering a range of benefits such as durability and weather-resistance. These are a great option for Phoenix’s temperature and sunny days. Polymer roofing shingles are inherently capable of warding off negative environmental factors. A polymer roof can protect your house from heat, fire and rain.
In addition to this robust security, polymer shingles are also an affordable roofing option. They are cheaper than shingles made from natural materials. Needless to say, polymer’s durability will pay for its cost many times over, over its long life.
If you are attracted by the looks of natural shingle roofing, but your budget doesn’t allow it, polymer shingle roofing can be made to imitate the look & feel of the classy natural shingle roofing.
