Most shingles are made of asphalt, but wood, slate, and other composite materials can also be used. When installing shingles, a roofer will start at the bottom and overlap layers of shingles to create a waterproof layer that protects your roof and keeps water from entering your home.
Shingles are staggered on top of each other to protect your roof from water and wind damage. Shingles should overlap at a rate of about an inch to an inch and a half. If a shingle hangs too far over, it can be easily blown away in the wind. On the other hand, water can seep through to your roof if the shingle doesn’t overlap enough.

A high-quality shingle roof can easily last over 25 years. However, as a general rule of thumb, here’s a timeline for when to replace your roof:
As the most common method of roofing, shingles are a good fit for most homes. One factor to consider is weather conditions in your area. Since winds or extreme temperatures can damage certain types of shingles, it’s important to choose the right material.
In addition, the ventilation and slope of your roof may determine if shingles are right for you. Flat roofs, for example, cannot use shingles.

“Kevin came out on a couple days notice for a free estimate. He and his crew were able to replace the roof on my rental property ahead of their estimated schedule. They banged it out in one day and sent me photographs of the finished work. Great work and a nice team of people. 5 stars, would recommend! – Matthew
