Metal Shingles Come In Many Styles And Textures!

In recent years, metal roofing has become a popular residential roofing material and there is certainly a wide range of options to consider! Residential metal roofing now has just as many choices as commercial metal roofing. While there are several different metal roof choices used on residential structures, today we will focus on metal shingles. There are plenty of benefits to choosing metal shingles over traditional shingles, and we are here to explain why!

Metal roofing has many benefits, such as:

  • High Energy Efficiency
  • Outstanding Longevity
  • Extraordinary Value
  • Impressive Durability

Metal roof shingles are one of the most preferred metal roofing systems, because they provide a polished, modern option for a typical roofing style. One popular choice is the metal shake roofing, which looks like a wood shake roof, but lasts longer and is more durable. The price of installing these roofing materials is about the same, but metal offers fire resistance and low maintenance, which cedar does not.

There is also a variety of other metal shingle options, such as slate metal roofing and metal roofing tiles. Slate metal roofing is a lightweight, inexpensive option for residents who want the aesthetic of a slate roof, while metal roofing tiles look similar to clay or concrete tiles. Whatever type of metal roofing shingles you would like to install on your house, our roofing contractors are here to help you.

The Differences Between 3 Tab and Laminate Shingles

Whichever Type of Shingle Roof You Choose, Let Us Complete the Installation.

If you’re considering a replacement for your shingle roof, you may have heard phrases like “3 tab shingles”, “dimensional shingles”, “laminate shingles” or “architectural shingles” and wondered about the differences between all these different types of shingle roofs. The truth is, there are really only two different types. There are 3 tab shingles and laminate shingles, which are sometimes called dimensional or architectural shingles. Capital Roofing, LLC works with both types of shingles and is happy to assist you with your roof replacement.

So what’s the difference?

While they are both asphalt shingles, there are some significant differences between 3 tab and laminate shingles.

3 tab shingles

3 tab shingles have been the roofing material for many years, but their popularity is waning. They have a very flat appearance, as all the shingles are the same shape, size and color. Their lifespan tends to be shorter than most other roofing material. They are, however, less expensive than most roofing materials and as a lightweight roofing material, they won’t put a lot of strain on your roof.

Laminate Shingles

Laminate shingles have risen to popularity in recent years. They are made of two layers of asphalt roofing, and the shingles come in a variety of sizes to give the roof a multi-dimensional look. They have a very long lifespan and are able to withstand extremely strong winds. The downside to these shingles is their price. They are much more expensive to install than 3 tab shingle roofing.
