Choosing the Right Shingle for Your RoofMany folks know the basics when it comes to their roof. They know that it protects their home or business from the elements and that it is covered in shingles or other roofing materials. Some colors match your property better than others and some shingles have a more dynamic look than others. But, aside from the color and overall look of the shingle, the average roofing customer knows nothing more about what type of shingle would be best for their roof. This is why it is nice to have a roofing professional at the touch of a button who can gather this imperative information for you!

Webb Professional Remodeling is in the business of helping customers with the details that are beyond their knowledge base. There are many different types of shingles that can be used for your roof, but we want to highlight for you the five most popular choices so that you can familiarize yourself with what is available to you.

Asphalt Shingles – The most common and inexpensive choice. These shingles last an average of 25-30 years, but this amount of time is not that long in comparison to other types.

Wood Shingles – These are a bit more expensive than the asphalt shingles and bring a more earthy, natural appearance. This type lasts an approximate 30 years, minimally speaking.

Slate Shingles – More popular choice in the Northeastern portion of the country, although available to you in Shreveport, as well. They are typically more expensive than other shingle types but will often last as long as 50 or more years.

Synthetic Slate Shingles – This option looks like slate but doesn’t cost as much as the authentic material. It is still more expensive than a few other options but should last at least 40 years.

Tile Shingles – A popular choice in the Southwest region of the US, this type is most expensive to purchase and to have installed. However, on the up side, this shingle material is expected to last an amazing 80 or more years.
