Asphalt Shingles: A Popular Fort Lauderdale Roofing Material We Work With

Asphalt shingles

Choosing the perfect asphalt shingle involves more than just the right color. With 3-tab, architectural, and luxury options available, how is a homeowner supposed to choose the most effective and efficient shingle?

Fortunately, Panela Roofing is that well-respected roofing contractor for Fort Lauderdale, and we would like nothing more than to work with you to design the exact roof you want. From color to design and everything in between, choosing the ideal asphalt shingles for your Fort Lauderdale home will be easier when you sign on with us.

In general, there are three basic types of shingles, and often they are ranked as good, better, and best:

  • Strip or 3-tab
  • Architectural or dimensional
  • Luxury

Traditional Roof Shingle Repair & Replacement

If your roof has suffered damage, our goal at Panela Roofing is to determine if a repair is the best option. If it is, we will work with you and your insurance company to guide you through the claim and repair plan.

But sometimes, full roof replacement is necessary. If this is the case, again, we will work with you and your insurance company and devise a workable, affordable plan. This involves removing the existing roofing material and then determining which option works best - roof singles or perhaps metal roofing.

Which Asphalt Shingle Is The Best Option?

The strip or 3-tab asphalt shingle is a basic shingle with a lifespan of about 20 years, depending on maintenance practices and weather impact. These sectional shingles feature a single layer of asphalt and have a flat appearance. They are typically used to replace roofing sections that already have sectional shingles or on less expensive new homes.

Architectural or dimensional shingles are a step up from sectional and are the most common residential shingle on the market. Architectural shingles provide an aesthetically pleasing, multi-dimensional look and are manufactured with two or more layers of asphalt fused together. They are meant to mimic the look of natural slate or wood shake roofing.

Luxury shingles are the top-of-the-line asphalt shingles considered to be the most durable and long-lasting. With multiple layers of protection and a custom look that can appear to be natural slate or wood shake, the luxury shingle is the most expensive but also the most effective. While you might pay more now, you'll pay less later.

With much to consider when deciding which asphalt shingle works best for you, why not turn to a roofing contractor like Panela Roofing? We are standing by to guide you through the process.
