Shingles are one of the most popular roofing materials in the country. It strikes the balance between affordability, longevity, and sustainability. In a highly competitive market, several options from many different manufacturers are available, with varying levels of quality. If this is your first time having a new roof installed on your home, choosing the right roofing for your home can be confusing. All States Home Improvement is here to help you choose. Here are the types of shingle roofing that we offer:
Also known as composition shingles, they are the most commonly used material for residential roofs. They are available in strips of backing material commonly referred to as the base. The base can be made from paper or fiberglass, depending on the product.
Roofers apply a layer of asphalt onto the base as a waterproofing agent. They then apply another layer of granules for a combination of additional features like color, UV protection, or protection from algae and fungus growth. In addition to traditional three-tab shingles, higher-end options such as dimensional or architectural shingles are made to mimic the hand-cut, layered look of wood shakes or roof tiles.
Polymer shingles are a lesser-known type of shingle and are made from recycled plastic. The use of polymer as an alternative to asphalt stemmed from the need to recycle plastics instead of consigning them to landfills. Polymer shingles are functionally similar to asphalt shingles but are much lighter.
All States Home Improvement offers DaVinci Polymer Shingles for roofing in Wichita, KS. It provides superior protection from wind, weather, and direct impact, are virtually maintenance-free, and lasts up to five decades.
Impact-resistant shingles are a relatively new type of residential roofing designed to withstand direct impact. Given the amount of hail we get in Kansas, these shingles are a great investment for your home. Impact from hail isn’t readily visible from the ground. Typical shingles would seem okay, despite sustaining impact damage. Impact-resistant shingles are designed with this problem in mind. In fact, our impact-resistant shingles have earned a Class 4 rating from global independent safety science company UL. This indicates the highest level of resistance to hail damage.
