Shingles roof and Spanish tile roof

Which type of roof to install is an important factor to consider when undertaking a roofing project. The factors that influence homeowners’ choices are diverse: style, cost, longevity. This article is about the Shingles style and the Spanish roof style.

Shingles roof

Shingles are the most common type of roof and it offers a classic style. It is generally composed of a variety of overlapping roof panels superimposed on each other. Shingles are composed of various materials such as slate, wood, metal, asphalt, and most commonly fiberglass. They are easy to install and are the lowest cost option.

Shingles are usually available in a variety of colors and shapes, which makes it possible to match a variety of styles of architecture. Some chemical treatments or materials are inherently fire resistant and UV reflective. But over time, gaps in roofing materials also began to show. Wood shingles age rapidly from moss and sun exposure. This requires complex maintenance and upkeep by the homeowner to ensure that the roof does not leak, etc.

A shingle made of traditional roofing materials has an expected service life of 15-30 years. And gradually become the most popular metal shingle, with a service life of more than 50 years. JINHU stone-coated metal shingles combine the durability of metal with the look of traditional roofing.

Spanish tile roof

Tile roofs are widely used all over the world. Because it is most commonly found in Spanish-style buildings, it is called Spanish tile.

However, it is fragile and heavy, which increases installation and maintenance costs.
