Asphalt shingles, made from just one layer of asphalt, are the most commonly used roofing material in North America. They are less expensive than most other roofing products, and come in a range of colors and styles, including designs that mimic wood shakes or slate tiles. While asphalt shingles are durable and can last up to 20 years or more, they are not as thick or textured as other materials, making them more susceptible to damage from high winds, hail, and other weather events.
Architectural shingles are also known as dimensional or laminated shingles. They have a thicker and more textured appearance than regular asphalt shingles because they are made from multiple layers of asphalt and fiberglass. Architectural shingles are available in a wide range of colors and styles, including designs that mimic the look of cedar shakes or slate tiles. They are more durable and have a longer lifespan than asphalt shingles, typically lasting up to 30 years or more.
Residents are sometimes unsure about the idea of installing roofs and gutters simultaneously because they are worried about the cost. However, there are lots of benefits to doing this jointly instead of at two separate times. Firstly, the gutters and roof work together to protect a home from water damage. If gutters are old or damaged, they may not be able to handle the amount of water that runs off the roof during heavy rainstorms. This can lead to water damage to the rest of the foundation, siding, and other areas.
Moreover, installing new gutters with a new roof ensures that they will be properly sized and installed to match the pitch, maximizing the gutters’ effectiveness. Most importantly, installing new gutters at the same time as a new roof can save money in the long run.
