Basic Roofing Layout
3 Tab Shingles
Specialists in Wind and Hail Damage
Composition is the most common roofing system for residential homes, and is what most people think of when they think of roofing.
Most Common Types:
- Laminate Shingles- These are basically a solid layer of asphault shingle with an ‘architectural cut’ layer laminated on top for added protection and looks. Most manufacturers are offering a ‘lifetime warranty’ for this style of shingle, which is usually heavily prorated. These style of shingles can offer up to 120 mph wind rating if nailed properly.
- 3 tab Shingles- This is your entry level product providing the minimum coverages. These shingles carry appx a 40-50mph wind rating, and are highly suscepible to wind damage.
Our experience with composition roofing is that in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, the composition roofs last around 15-20 years before they start having some major issues. These issues are typically granule loss, blistering, problems staying sealed down, and the shingles drying out and becoming brittle.
With all of the potential issues on your composition roof, it is very important that you have you next roof installed to the best possible standards. And also make sure that are using the best quality of products that are available. If you take care to address these two things, you will be well on your way to a roof that will be relatively maintenance and problem free.
