Shingle roofing tends to be the most common type in Mississippi, especially on the roofs of residential homes. One of the reasons why shingle roofs are so popular is because they look great, and most people can afford them.
As one of Mississippi’s leading shingle roofing services, we often recommend homeowners on a budget install shingle roofs since they are both waterproof and cost-effective. The shingles also hold tiny granules in place, which helps with ensuring that they remain strong. We use the highest quality asphalt, which remains flexible and does not turn dry or brittle for that matter, which means that they last longer than other types of roofs.
Apart from cost-effectiveness, there are a few other reasons to choose shingle roofing, which include:
Fiberglass shingles provide some of the best fire protection.
It is quick, easy, and affordable to repair a shingle roof in Mississippi. So, if a recent storm has damaged a small area on the roof, that area can easily be replaced.
You can choose from a myriad of colors that make your home stand out and add curb appeal.
When installed by our professionals using the best quality materials, shingle roofs can easily last for up to 25 years, if not more.
Shingle roofs are very easy to maintain because they don’t require much beyond an annual inspection.
One of the questions we often get from homeowners is which type of shingles are better for their roof? Fiberglass shingles tend to be the thinnest and lightest, making them easier to install, and they have a much better fire rating. However, organic shingles tend to be more durable and will remain flexible when temperatures plummet in Mississippi.
Generally, we’ve seen that fiberglass shingles are more predominant in the central and southern regions, with organic shingles prevalent in the North. That said, it also depends on your use case and budget. At American Roofing and Construction Inc., our experts will often recommend shingles depending on what we think will work best for you.
Some homes can benefit from wood shingles, which are sawn from wood blocks; they tend to be tapered with a smooth surface. The other option if you want wood is wood shakes, which too are split from wooden blocks; they offer far less uniformity in terms of shingles as compared to shingles and can be grooved and have a bit of tapering. Shakes can be split and sawn to ensure they taper to a flat surface. Shakes and shingles can also be used on your home’s sidewalls.
