What are roof shingles?

Roof shingles are a roof covering consisting of individual overlapping elements. Shingle roofs are among the most popular type of roofing used in homes in the United States, but may deteriorate faster and need to repel more water than wall shingles. These elements are typically flat, rectangular shapes laid in courses from the bottom edge of the roof up, with each successive course overlapping the joints below. Shingles are made of various materials such as wood, slate, flagstone, fibre cement, metal, plastic, and composite material such as asphalt shingles. Ceramic roof tiles, which still dominate in Europe and some parts of Asia, are still usually called tiles.

Shingle Benefits

  • Asphalt shingles tiles – Typically the most affordable roofing material, yet highly resilient. Asphalt shingles can last upwards of 30 years when properly installed by a contractor. They are energy efficient and reliable, making them a popular choice for many residential roof applications.
  • Wood shingles tiles – Can outperform asphalt shingles and last for decades. Wood shingles can add personality and charm that may not be as easily achieved with other roof tile types.
  • Slate roofing tiles – Offer a superior water/freezing resistance compared to other roofing materials.
