Why Choose Shingle Roofs?

With so many roofing materials to choose from, it’s challenging to know which material is right for your home and wallet. At EcoShield, we always try to help our customers find the right solution for both because a roof that lasts means it’s a worthwhile investment. Shingle roofs are a highly affordable material that’s capable of lasting for 20+ years, so when you install a shingle roof, you won’t have to worry about the integrity of your roof for years to come. In addition to their longevity, shingle roofs are ideal for several other reasons.

  • Material Selection
    • With so many types of shingles to choose from, you can have the roof you’ve always wanted at a very affordable price. Shingle roofs can vary from high-end materials like metal to more affordable materials like asphalt. Based on your design goals and budget, a professional roofing company can help you find roofing material for your needs.
  • Durability
    • Shingle roofs are reasonably weather-resistant, depending on the material you choose. Like many other roofing materials, some are better than others, so choosing the best material is essential, especially for its longevity and durability.
  • Eco-Friendly
    • Shingle roofs are good for the environment because some materials are recyclable and more sustainable. They don’t require heavy adhesives that contribute to harming our Earth.

When it comes to installing a new roof, shingle roofs are up to the challenge of protecting your roof while making your home look amazing. If you’re ready to install a shingle roof, EcoShield Roofing has your back.

The Best Roof Shingle Types

Like all roofing materials, shingle roofs come in many forms, and people often choose a style based on personal preference and budgeting. But, with so many choices, how do you narrow down the best fit for your roof? By reviewing all your options with professional roofers!

At EcoShield Roofing, our team can help you choose the best roof shingle type for your budget and needs. We understand that selecting roofing materials are a big decision, that’s why we want to present our customers with all their options.

Metal Shingles
While metal shingles are not quite as popular as asphalt or wood shingles, many customers like them due to their stylish look and longevity. Thanks to their metallic paint finish, you can purchase these shingles in a variety of colors and have the roof you’ve always wanted. They are also incredibly durable, lasting for 60-75 years with proper maintenance, and are incredibly sustainable long-term.

Solar Shingles
A more recent trend in the roofing industry, solar shingles are becoming increasingly popular thanks to their eco-friendly nature. While they are a hefty initial investment, they will help you save tremendously in the long run since they power your home with energy from the sun. Increased energy efficiency makes for more affordable roofing material in the long run, and this form of energy is more sustainable.

Asphalt Shingles
Asphalt shingles are among the most popular roofing materials because of their affordability and longevity. They can last for 15-40 years, depending on the quality of shingles chosen. At EcoShield, we use the most durable roofing materials available, so you’ll never worry about the longevity of your roof. With annual maintenance and care, asphalt shingles can last for upwards of 50 years. 

Wood Shingles
Another incredibly popular roofing material, wood shingles are created by fusing different types of wood, which are layered together into sections, creating a multi-dimensional appearance. While they can vary in price based on the wood used, they can sit on the more affordable or more expensive end of your budget. However, wood shingles often last for 25-30 years and are a more sustainable roofing material.

Slate Shingles
Slate shingles are another popular option thanks to their attractive finish and more industrial appearance. Even though they are thin, they are among the heaviest materials available, so you don’t have to worry about the longevity of your roof.

Clay Shingles
A popular option in several parts of the country, clay shingles are fairly durable and affordable because clay is so resourceful to find. Clay, however, only lasts for over a decade, even with the proper care, so it’s not the most logical for your finances.

Other Roof Shingle Types
There are also a few other materials that are very durable but not as common for shingle roofs. They are as follows:

  • Composite Plastic
  • Rubber
  • Tile

Shingle Roofing Color Choices

Choosing a roof shingle type might seem like a tough choice, but one of the most challenging decisions is choosing the right color for your shingles!

Before purchase, always consider the exterior of your home. The best way to choose a shingle color is by matching your roof to your exterior walls or siding. Choosing similar colors will make your home’s exterior more cohesive and increase the overall curb appeal.

If you’re unsure what color will go best with your home, go with something neutral. Neutral colors are popular because they match most home exteriors and increase curb appeal. The most popular and attractive roof shingle colors are as follows:

  • Brown
  • Gray
  • Black
  • Red

All of these colors easily match clay, metal, wood, and slate. Of course, you can try to experiment with other colors by changing shades or testing contrast.

Another significant consideration for shingle roof colors is if they help your home’s energy efficiency. Color has a direct correlation to how warm or cool your house gets. Darker shades are more likely to cause more heat absorption; therefore, your home gets warmer faster. If you want to keep cooling costs manageable, cooler colors are a great way to save money!

 

Shingle Roof Installation: Roof Replacement Costs

It’s no secret that installing a new shingle roofing can be a costly endeavor. However, the total cost of your roof depends on the extent of the damage and the way your roofing technicians approach installation.

When you approach a roof installation, be sure to ask your roofing technicians how they plan to install your new roof. Even though the initial investment might seem costly, it’s important to have your roof installed properly rather than cut corners during installation. Some people resort to placing new shingles over their pre-existing roof so that they can cut down on the overall installation cost. While this method may save $1,000 upfront, it can end up costing you more in the long run. An improper roof installation can result in the following problems:

  • Uneven Roofing
    • If a new roof is installed over an old one, your roof will have many unattractive bumps. Installing a new roof over pre-existing shingles makes the new shingles harder to secure, and they’ll likely break earlier than their intended lifespan.
  • Multiple Repair Costs
    • More likely than not, the old roofing will eventually give way underneath your new roof, and you’ll need more work done.
  • Structural Strain
    • No roof can accommodate the heavyweight of two sets of shingles. It might collapse and damage other parts of your home.
  • Building Code Violations
    • If you’re trying to sell your home, having a home inspection could lead to violations and fines preventing you from selling your home. Many houses have collapsed after storms due to bad roofing, hence why the regulations are in place.

 As tempting as it is to cut roofing costs, it’s not the best way to save money in the long run. If you’re ready to invest in a new roof, it’s essential to make the most of your initial investment. At EcoShield, we believe in finding valuable solutions that make your shingle roof installation more affordable without cutting corners. Our shingle roof installation services are here to make your home more secure, durable, and beautiful without compromising your budget.

Other Affordable Roof Service Options

Still worried about how you’ll afford your roof? The good news is many programs offer grants to low-income homeowners or those with disabilities. If you believe you qualify for a grant, we can point you in the right direction!

The Weatherization Assistance Program is an excellent example of one such program. It is a program by the US Department of Energy that supports low-income households. This grant pays us for materials and installation costs, so you don’t have to cover anything. 

Also, refinancing and loans are other options to consider. Some loans cater to those who need home repairs – just make sure that the terms are agreeable and that the interest rate is something you can manage.

If you have homeowners insurance, it’s a good idea to check your policy. Some policies cover roofing repairs in case of an accident or act of nature. However, most do not cover neglect or wear and tear. You can always consult with your carrier to see if they can help you with the costs.
