Asphalt Shingles in Florida

As homeowners in Florida, we know firsthand the importance of having a strong and sturdy roof. Our homes are constantly exposed to various weather conditions, including high winds, rain, and sometimes even hail. That's why it's so important to make sure that our roofs are in good condition and can withstand whatever Mother Nature throws our way.

One of the most popular types of roofing material here in Florida is asphalt shingle roofing. Asphalt shingles are made to withstand high winds and are one of the most common types of roofing material used after a hurricane. That's because they're less likely to be damaged by flying debris or wind-borne objects. In addition, asphalt shingles are also very easy to repair if they do sustain any damage.

If you're thinking about replacing your roof or installing a new one, we highly recommend that you consider asphalt shingle roofing. It's durable, cost-effective, and can help keep your home and family safe during a hurricane.

Types of Asphalt Shingle Roofs

There are two types of asphalt shingle roofs: 3-Tab shingles and architectural shingles.

3-Tab Shingles: These are the most basic and economical type of asphalt shingle. They are made up of three tabs that run horizontally across the width of the shingle. 3-Tab shingles are most commonly used on homes with gable roofs (i.e., roofs with two sloping sides that come together at a peak).

Architectural Shingles: Also known as laminated or dimensional shingles, these are slightly more expensive than 3-Tab shingles but offer a number of benefits. Architectural shingles are thicker and heavier than 3-Tab shingles, which makes them more resistant to high winds. They also have a more textured appearance, which can give your home a more upscale look.

3-Tab shingles are the most basic and economical type of asphalt shingle.
