Pick the Right Shingles for Your Roofing Service Needs

Your roof is one of the most important components of your home. It protects your home from weather, helps facilitate the flow of water away from your home, and can even add curb appeal. When it’s time to replace the shingles on your roof, there are many factors to consider when choosing which style of shingles to use. With more than 90 years of service to Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, and the surrounding areas, Tichenor Inc. can help you pick the right shingles and install them to ensure your home is properly protected. In today’s post, we will discuss the types of shingles available, and the benefits of using each one.

Asphalt Shingles are a Dependable, Affordable Option

Asphalt Shingles have been a popular roofing option for decades. Asphalt shingles provide adequate protection against the elements, keeping water out of your home. They can be installed quickly and will last about 15-20 years, making them an affordable investment for your home. They are available in a number of different styles and colors, allowing you to pick an option that complements the rest of your home’s exterior to add curb appeal to your home.

Metal Shingles for a Stronger, More Durable Roof

Metal Shingles are becoming a more popular option in recent years due to being stronger than asphalt shingles. With a higher investment, you can get better protection that will last about twice as long as the asphalt shingles. They add curb appeal and value to your home, and are more resistant to high winds, hail, and other inclement weather we experience in Southwest Michigan. You can also choose Stone Coated Metal Shingles, which are made of numerous layers for even more strength and should last up to 70 years, making them the last shingles you will ever have to install on your home.

Superior Protection with F-Wave Synthetic Shingles

Our strongest option, F-Wave Synthetic Shingles will provide you with superior protection against even the harshest elements. These shingles will also last as long as metal shingles, but they provide added protection, with a Class 4 impact rating against hail and a wind rating for up to 130 miles per hour. These F-Wave Synthetic Shingles also have a Class A fire rating, for maximum protection against fire with a proven 6 foot maximum flame spread that will prevent the flames from penetrating into your attic.
