When it comes to your home, a new roof is likely the largest investment you will make. At Big Ike’s Roofing Company we have the training and experience to ensure your roof is installed using quality products and craftsmanship. One of the most common roof choices among homeowners is asphalt shingles. They are durable and cost efficient as well as attractive. We are here to talk about all the shingle options you have available to you so that you can make an informed decision when it comes to shingle roof installation and replacement.
How to Choose the Right Shingles for Your Home
There are two shingle styles that you can choose from for your shingle roof: architectural shingles and traditional 3-tab design shingles. The traditional 3-tab design shingles are a common choice and come in a variety of colors. They have three tabs built into their profile and are a popular choice. The architectural shingles are much thicker and deep. They are made to resemble classic wood shake shingles and create a beautiful rooftop.
How to Make Your Home Stand Out
If you are looking for ways to make your home stand out from the rest, consider having architectural style shingles on your roof. This is also a good choice for those that have a roof with a steep pitch. Architectural style shingles will make your home pop when compared to the surrounding homes.
How to Choose Roof Color for Your House
Choosing the right shingle color for your home is always a big deal for homeowners. It depends on the color preference of the homeowner and the style of their home when selecting shingle colors. A good tip is to drive around your neighborhood and see what the varying colors are in your community. Look at a variety of homes: stone, brick, siding and more to not what colors look the best. You can get actual shingle samples from your contractor to give you a better idea of what the roof will look like when it is complete. We also have hardware that can show you images of your home with different roof colors so you can have a visual reference when making the right choice.
