An Affordable Type of Shingle

These are the most common roofing product in North America, and exactly what most people think of when they hear the term shingles. Four out of every five homes in the United States feature asphalt shingles, and for good reason. They are quite durable, as you can expect them to last for up to 20 years. Yet they are also the most affordable type of shingle on the market today. With a well-earned reputation for efficiency, quality and price, At The Top Restoration is the preeminent roofing specialist in Nashville. Make sure you contact us if you have any questions regarding options for your latest project.

Why Choose Asphalt Shingles?

These days there are almost endless possibilities when it comes to choosing a new roof. But there is a reason that asphalt shingles have withstood the test of time. In addition to being very economical, they are also easy to install, further lowering your overall costs. They are relatively lightweight, meaning both ease of use and no need for any extra structural support. And, despite the uniformity of material, they are available in a surprisingly wide range of colors, textures, and styles, many of which do a reasonable job of emulating premium roofing options such as slate, tile and wood shake.

Asphalt shingles come in three different variations:

3-Tab Shingles

The standard choice, these basic shingles get their name from the tabs cut into one side that makes them look like separate shingles once installed. These come in a wide variety of colors and tones but typically have the same general shape and look.

Architectural Shingles

A somewhat higher-end option, architectural shingles, or dimensional shingles, generally have an added layer of laminate to change the look and improve their durability and weather-resistance. They will be slightly heavier and more expensive than 3-tab shingles, but still less than most other premium options on both counts.

Impact Resistant Shingles

This functional choice is specifically designed with toughness in mind, built to withstand the most severe circumstances and featuring additional reinforcement to protect the matting and decking as well. Those who are mainly concerned with durability and weather damage will find impact resistant shingles to be a practical choice.
