New shingles can transform the look of a home’s roof, increasing value and appeal.

What are Shingles?

If you are looking at having a roof constructed for a new home or wanting to replace an existing roof, you are probably somewhat familiar with what shingles are. Shingles are a series of overlapping, individual components in organized rows that create a barrier which protects your home or business from the elements. They form the part of the roof that is visible to passers-by. The shingle’s design protects the underlying structure of your home from rain and snow. These elements run down and over each shingle before falling into the gutter or to the ground. Without them, water would soak into the woodwork and cause it to rot over time.

Shingle Types

Roofing shingles come in a variety of materials and there is a shingle material to suit every home and budget. At the less expensive end of the scale and one of the more common materials are asphalt shingles. These are easy to install and great on a budget. Also, some asphalt shingles come in exclusive styles with a wide range of colors that can be used to create innovative roofing designs. Wood, slate, clay and metal shingles are also available, each with their own look and characteristics, so whatever look you have in mind, there is a shingle to suit.

Choosing the Right Look

Your roof is visible from the curb, as well as your backyard and the look of your roof affects the look of your whole house. Choosing the right shingles are important because the type of shingle you select will have a lot of impact on the overall look and appeal of your roof. The right choice that fits seamlessly with the rest of your house will look great and add value to your home, while getting it wrong can mean a roof that doesn’t seem to fit well with the rest of your home. With all the styles, shapes and colors to choose from it can be difficult to know what will work best. At Minneapolis Roofing Pros, our years of experience have given us a keen eye for detail, so if you need help finding just the right material and style to complement your home, talk to our team.
