Residential Shingle Roof


Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used roofing material in North America home. They are not only economical to purchase but also simple to install and with a variety of colors to choose from. Generally speaking new shingled roof should normally last 15 to 25 years depending upon the type of shingles installed, however many factors such as improper installation, lack of ventilation, elements of nature may shorten the life expectance of asphalt shingle.

At City Roofing we feature and install IKO, CERTAINTEED and BP shingles, these are quality brand name shingle and provide material warranty up to 50 years. The 2 most common shingle design in the market are traditional 3-tab and laminated / architectural shingles, the 3-tab design with 20/25 limited lifetime is cheaper to buy and a standard roofing material for builders and new construction homes. The laminated shingles are made of multiple staggered layers of materials resulting in more rigid and heavier construction; thus better seals out rain, sleet, snow, ice and wind without curling, rotting, warping, or losing tabs. These shingles usually come in 30/40/50 year limited lifetime warranty.

Today the laminated “architectural” design shingles are becoming more and more popular as a homeowner’s choice because it gives your home's roof a thicker, more high-profile look than any ordinary shingle can; and also more importantly longer shingle lifetime for the money.
