Types of Roof Shingles

Whether it’s time for a completely new roof or you’re just tired of your old one, you may be considering roof replacement. If the diagnostic results in more than just a repair, it can be overwhelming to sift through all your options. What Momentum Home does is far beyond just switching out your old roof for a new one — we’ll be giving your home a complete makeover that you can brag to your neighbors about.

Your roof type determines how extensive your repairs or replacement will be. Momentum Home offers several options for you to choose from if you want to completely change your roof type, which our rep will review with you with tangible roofing samples. You’ll never have to guess based off a picture in a book – you’ll know exactly what you’re getting before it’s installed!

Here are a few different types of roof shingles that you can choose from:


Asphalt shingles are the most common shingle in America because they are relatively inexpensive and durable. They are well known for lasting about 20 years on average, depending on whether you live in an area with intense sunlight or temperature extremes. Other benefits include its wide variety of color and styles.


If you are looking for a sophisticated roofing material that is built to last at least a century for your upscale home, then slate shingles may be the answer! Slate shingles provide easy stackability on homes and have some of the best water and damage resistance properties. Color options typically include black, gray and red.


Wood shingles are another very popular type of roof shingles that have been used for centuries as a sustainable roofing option. A typical wood roof will last close to 40 years, much longer than a typical asphalt shingle roof.


Metal is a very common material used for roofs, which is due to its life expectancy of 50 years and the fact that it reflects radiant heat. Additionally, it is typically much lighter than a typical roofing system. Metal roofs can be made of many different metal materials including coated steel, aluminum, copper, tin, stainless steel and zinc.
