Choosing the Best Roofing for Your Home
Metal, architectural shingles, or three tab shingles – which is the best option for your roof? Each option has potential advantages and disadvantages. At Dedicated Roofing of Georgia, we offer an array of roofing options for repair and installation that can help you enhance the visual appeal and functionality of your roofing system. Whether you prefer metal, architectural shingles, or three tab asphalt roof shingles, you can benefit from the quality products and excellent workmanship we provide to Peachtree City, GA homeowners.
Let’s look at three popular types of roof coverings and what makes them potentially the ideal choice for your roof.
A 3-tab shingle is the industry standard, commonly used shingle. It is usually a 2-dimensional, flat mat, constructed of fiberglass, coated in asphalt with a covering of ceramic granules for color variations.
These are a lower quality roof shingle choice for Peachtree City, GA homeowners compared to others and are susceptible to blowing off the roof sooner than other higher quality roofing tiles or shingles. As a result, the maintenance and repair costs for 3-tab shingles are generally higher. The cost of installation is less than architectural shingles, but the cost difference may not be high enough to justify the lower quality and durability in many cases.
These shingles are heavier than standard 3-tab asphalt shingles. They are made with a heavy, thick fiberglass or organic mat and coated underneath with a special type of material, with colored granules covering the top layer. They are 3-dimensional in nature as opposed to the 2-dimension look of 3-tab shingles, and can be made with complex color designs that perfectly match your home’s exterior. Architectural shingles are a good choice if you intend to sell your home because they can significantly enhance your home’s curb appeal for a reasonable price.
A metal roof can be more costly upfront than the other roofing options mentioned above, but provides excellent visual appeal, durability, and value. If you want a sleek look to your roof, consider metal. Metal roofs have a long lifespan of 40-70 years generally, which can be kind to your wallet and the environment. Not having to replace your roof as often certainly justifies the higher upfront cost. They effectively withstand weather, including high speed winds.
Homeowners with a more limited budget may not be able to afford a metal roof. Metal roofing can also be loud during a storm, but many homeowners enjoy the sound of rain on a metal roof.
