Wood Cedar Shake Shingles
Restore the Beauty to Your Home
There are many different types of asphalt shingles to look at when wanting to re-roof your home. The main thing you want to know is how long the shingles are going to last, that is all going to be determined by the shingle style. Different styles of shingles have different lifespans. The very last thing you want to pick, is the color of the shingle. The color may seem like the main thing to look for but you may end up falling in love with the color of a not so good shingle. We all would like a shingle to last forever, unfortunately they don’t. Here are a few simple steps to determine which shingle would be best for you.
Step 1: Shingle Style
Is the shingle a 3 tab, which has a considerably shorter lifespan, architectural which has many different lengths of lifespan or is it a wood shingle with a mid to long range lifespan with care?
Step 2: Shingle Life
Is the shingle a 10, 15, 20, 25 30 yr. or Lifetime?
Step 3: Shingle Color
After you have determined the life and style of shingle the color is up to you, generally speaking no color will be better than another unless you go with white. White shingles are actually Energy Star rated shingles and will help with energy savings.
