3 TIPS ON ROOF SHINGLE SELECTION

You’ll probably be living with your roof for years to come, so consider the following tips before finalizing a shingle decision.

COLOR

Choosing an asphalt shingle that suits your home can be overwhelming, since there are thousands of options on the market. Before picking shingles, check to see whether your homeowner’s association or community organization has regulations about allowable color schemes. To narrow your options further, look for roof shingles that complement your siding or brick. Remember, light roofing colors typically make a structure seem larger and more contemporary, while darker colors can make a building feel cozier and more traditional. Your roof shingles help tie your home’s exterior look together, so talk with your Pro American Home Improvements.professional about the best color options for the look you’re trying to achieve.

STYLE

Shingles come in a variety of styles, depending on your budget and taste. Large format shingles cover more area in less time, but they don’t add dimension to your home’s roof. If you’re looking for a more depthful, custom look, consider laminated or “architectural” shingles which come with tabbed layers for added dimension. Strip roof shingles can also provide texture, since they can be layered to add depth to your roof’s surface.

QUALITY AND DURABILITY

Life span, sturdiness and weather resistance are all important considerations when you’re replacing a shingle roof.
