Asphalt shingles, composition shingles, three tab shingles…the list goes on and on. When choosing your new roof, it’s an important decision to make, but it can be confusing. Here are the different types of roof shingles explained.

Architectural Shingles
Architectural shingles are a type of asphalt shingle and are sometimes called designer shingles. They are often thicker and more defined than cheaper shingles. While they cost more, they often look better and will last longer. Some are even specially designed to withstand hail or mold growth.

Asphalt Shingles
The term asphalt shingles is broad and includes many more specific types of shingles, such as fiberglass and architectural. This phrase primarily references the material the shingle is made of, as opposed to wood or metal. Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used roofing materials in the country for residential buildings.

Composition Shingles
A category of asphalt shingles, composite or composition shingles are very popular and offer a wide selection. You can find several styles, colors, and thicknesses to suit your budget and specific needs. They are made of combinations of asphalt and tar paper, laminate, fiberglass, or other materials. This creates a more durable shingle that can be made to resemble slate or wood.

Three Tab Shingles
A type of asphalt composition shingle, three tab or 3-tab shingles are known as the most economical choice. They are easily affordable but are still quite durable and can last 15-20 years or more, depending on your environment and level of maintenance.

If you've lived in North Texas for a long time, you know that tornado season is in a few months. While the Texas tornado season doesn't occur until mid-April, it is a good idea to prepare your home before anything happens. The part of your home that can be susceptible to tornado damage is your roof. While it can be scary, prepping your roof can ensure your roof does not get damage. Here are some roof maintenance tips before a storm comes.

Get Your Roof Inspected

A biannual roof inspection can ensure your roof can withstand severe weather. A professional roofer will be able to inspect your roof and let you know if you need any repairs.

Cut Your Tree Branches

This is a good roof maintenance in general, but if you have overhanging tree limbs, consider cutting them back. Tree branches that are up against your house or roof can cause damage if there are high winds.

Get the Gutters Ready

Cleaning your gutters is a roof maintenance tip that you should do before and after a tornado hits. You'll want to clear out the gutters of debris and leaves to ensure water can go through the gutters. After the storm, clear out any debris that the storm blew into your gutters.

Taking these precautions can ensure your roof does not get serious damage. If, however, your residential or commercial roof has damage from a tornado or hail in Fort Worth, TX, call the experts at Aline Roofing at [nw_data field=phone].
