Atlanta Shingle Roofing
If you’re installing or replacing your roof, you know how important your choice of roofing material is. It affects the lifespan and cost of your roof, so it’s essential that you take the time to find the right roofing material for your needs.

Asphalt shingle roofing is one of the most popular options on the market, and with good reason. However, a proper installation is vital to get the most out of your Atlanta, GA, roof, which is why you need a contractor like GAF-certified Douglas Construction on your side.

It is important to consider the pros and cons of the different roofing types before making your final decision. We also offer tile roofing as another option.

What Exactly Is Shingle Roofing?

Asphalt shingles are made from a fiberglass mat covered in asphalt. This mat then gets another coating of mineral granules, which influence the color and life expectancy of the shingle. The higher the mineral grade, the more durable the shingles and the longer your roof will protect you from the elements. 

Types of Asphalt Shingles

All asphalt shingles contain the same core components. However, they can vary in style and installation method. Knowing the differences can help you pick the right one for your home. 

3-Tab Shingles

These shingles contain a single layer of asphalt that’s cut into strips and installed on your roof. They’re the most basic type of shingle, which makes them affordable and easy to install. They’re also lightweight, which can be a downside in Atlanta’s strong winds. 

Architectural Shingles

If you think of asphalt shingles, chances are you’ll picture these. These shingles contain two or more asphalt layers, which gives them a textured and varied appearance. They’re more durable than 3-tab shingles due to their multiple layers and are versatile enough to increase any home’s curb appeal. 

Premium Shingles

Luxury shingles are the closest in appearance to traditional slate or shake shingles. They contain multiple layers of laminated asphalt, giving them excellent durability and versatility. 

Due to the multiple layers, premium shingles weigh double the amount of a 3-tab shingle, which is an important consideration when using them in a new roof installation. However, the extra weight also makes them more wind-resistant, and their lifespan of 30 years reflects that added advantage. 

The Advantages of Shingle Roofing

Asphalt shingles have plenty of benefits, including:

  • Cost-effective
  • Easy and quick to install
  • Relatively noise-absorbent
  • Come in a wide range of colors, shapes, and textures

Their major drawback is their short lifespan, which means that you can expect to replace them within 15-20 years after installation. 

We offer a variety of options when it comes to types of roofing. If you are looking for an option with a longer lifespan we recommend looking at metal roofing. 

At Douglas Construction, we’re committed to helping you choose the right roofing material for your Atlanta, GA, home. Give us a call at (833) 895-7663 to schedule a consultation today!
