Shingle Roof Systems

Shingle Roofs

Slate, wood, asphalt, ceramics, composite materials and even asbestos-cement are some of the materials used to make roof shingles.Of these, fiberglass-based asphalt shingles covers the most roofs in the United States. These shingles are flat and rectangular in shape, and are placed in rows starting at the roof’s bottom edge and progressing upwards, with each succeeding higher row partly covering the one underneath it.

Fort Lauderdale Roofing Consultants installs roof shingles for any type of home project, whether you’re looking for inexpensive, simple projects on a restricted price range, or designer roofing shingles to make your property the envy of the neighborhood. The shingle roof can protect and beautify your home at just a fraction of the price of other roof covering materials.

At present, shingle roofs lead the way in the American re-roofing market. They need very little maintenance, and resist some of the worst weather conditions. They also offer hard to beat manufacturer warranties and are much more affordable than all the other options on the market.

Asphalt shingles contain at their core, a woven pad composed of fiberglass, that provides flexibility along with fire resistance. Located on the outer surface area of the roofing shingle is asphalt coating combined with finely crushed rock. This coating protects the shingle, so that your roof can easily last as much as 15 or 20 years, based on the variety of roofing shingle.
