AWS Roofing’s experts give advice below for residential shingle roofing

Opt for Architectural Shingles Over Three-Tab Shingles 

Most roofing contractors agree that architectural shingles withstand Florida’s weather much better than three-tab shingles. In fact, this design can add five to ten years to your roof’s lifespan with proper care. 

Top shingle brands, like Owens Corning and CertainTeed, use durable materials, which also add to the longevity of your roof.

Pros and Cons of Residential Shingle Roofing Materials

So, what are the most common roofing materials Florida homeowners pick? The pros and cons of the three primary roof shingle options are as follows:

  • Asphalt: Available in a range of colors, extremely cost-effective, but not as durable. 
  • Slate: The toughest, most expensive option, available in eye-catching tones. 
  • Metal: Slightly more expensive than asphalt but energy-efficient. Resembles tile.
