A professional roof inspection is essential to all roofing and construction projects. Without one, it will be like you’re building blindly because you’ll have no idea what the true state of your roof actually is. Roofing inspections allow you to take an objective look at your roof and determine the best course of action for your home and your budget.
Deciding on your roofing materials is one of the most exciting and daunting parts of installing a new roof in your home. You have the freedom to choose whichever roofing material your heart desires, but you better choose wisely because you’re stuck with that roofing material for the next few decades.
At J.L. Moore Construction Roofing, we install some of Richardson’s best asphalt roofing systems. These are the type of shingles we can install on your home.
Three-tab shingles are one of Richardson’s most affordable and popular shingle types. They consist of a single sheet with three tabs cut into them. The coating on top of the shingle consists of a layer of granules that help block ultra-violet light.
Three-tab shingles are available in different thicknesses, which help determine their longevity. Thicker shingles last longer than thinner ones but cost more. Asphalt shingles adhere to each other once placed and secured.
The trouble with three-tab shingles is that it lacks variety compared to other shingle types. They can blow off in strong winds and don’t last as long as architectural or luxury shingles. If you live in an area that suffers from high winds, look for stronger, more durable shingles.
Dimensional shingles have two layers of shingle material welded together, giving them a “three-dimensional” appearance. They last longer than three-tab shingles and come in a wider variety of styles, shapes, and colors. Dimensional shingles are less likely to blow off because they are thicker than their three-tab counterparts.
They are also more expensive than the three-tab variety, but they make up for it by being stronger and lasting longer. They’re about 20 percent more expensive, on average. But they last longer and look better, so most consider it a fair trade-off.
There are more luxury shingles styles to choose from than dimensional shingles, including ones that mimic shake or scalloped roofing tiles. Like the dimensional shingle, they don’t blow off. And luxury shingles look great without costing as much as other materials like slate or wood.
Luxury shingles are the best option for customers looking for longevity, and excellent “curb appeal.” luxury shingles are even more expensive than dimensional shingles, as you might expect. Still, they last much longer, between 40 and 50 years, and consist of premium asphalt and fiberglass materials that require less maintenance.
Your roofing installation costs are dependent on the labor costs of your preferred roofing company and the size of your roofing system. Some materials like metal, tile, and slate require specialists to install them correctly; installing these materials will, therefore, likely cost you a bit more.
