Make a Significant Long-Term Investment with Metal or Synthetic Shingles

Tichenor Inc. has been providing effective roofing solutions for homeowners throughout Southwest Michigan for 95 years. There are several options available to you when it comes time to re-shingle your home, from traditional asphalt shingles to highly durable synthetics. Before you make a decision about which option is right for your home and your budget, you should take the time to explore those options, so you can make an informed decision. While some traditional options are more affordable for tighter budgets, you can make a bigger investment into stronger materials that will last longer and provide better protection to your home. In today’s post, we will discuss the types of residential roofing shingles we work with at Tichenor Inc. and the benefits that come with choosing each of them.

Reliable & Affordable Asphalt Shingles

A time-tested roofing solution, asphalt shingles are the most popular option, due to their affordability and the effective protection they provide. Through normal Michigan weather conditions, you can expect your asphalt shingles to last a couple of decades before you will need to replace them.

Metal Shingles Add Style and Increased Protection

While asphalt shingles are sufficient to protect your roof, they cannot provide the same level of protection against high winds or hail storms that you can get from metal shingles. Metal shingles are available in numerous styles and colors, allowing you to find the perfect option that complements your home’s style and aesthetic look. Metal shingles will also last about twice as long as asphalt shingles, making them a great long-term investment.

Stone Coated Metal Shingles are a One-Time Investment

These multi-layer reinforced shingles offer superior protection for your roof while also adding style, curb appeal, and value to your home. Specially designed with upper layers that protect against the elements and lower layers that help prevent corrosion, stone coated metal shingles will last 2 to 3 times as long as asphalt shingles. This means that your stone coated metal shingles are likely the last ones you will ever need for your home.

F-Wave Synthetic Shingles for Superior Protection

F-Wave Synthetic Shingles have a Class 4 Impact Rating, protecting your home against large hail storms and winds up to 130 miles per hour. These shingles also have a Class A fire rating, adding increased protection against fire or extreme heat. Because of this, these shingles can lower your costs on your homeowner’s insurance policy while also greatly reducing the chances that you will ever need your roof repaired.
