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.

Proper installation of asphalt shingles is one of the key components of our roofing services to ensure your home stays protected from the harsh Atlanta climate.

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.

    • Excellent service from Douglas Construction!! We had hail damage, new roof required, insurance covered. It was really easy working with Rome, from start to finish. He is very professional and courteous! During roof install day, Jonathan and his crew were great! They came with a big crew early in the morning and got the roof installed in 1 day! Thanks for a great experience! The roof looks wonderful!

    • Since moving to GA, I've dealt with a lot of contractors & carpenters. In most cases, I've been disappointed with the results. However, working with Douglas Construction has been my best experience thus far. I was impressed with their professional & authentic marketing, their prompt & knowledgeable sales approach, and the overall quality of the installation. If you need a roof, call Douglas.

    • We had a great experience with Douglas Construction Company. They are very professional. We had storm damage and Hayden took care of everything, and was present at every step of the process. He gave us a free roof inspection, communicated with the insurance company, and before we knew it we had new high quality gutters and a beautiful new roof. We couldn’t have asked for more!
