Perhaps the most common and popular type of roofing, shingle roofing is found in both commercial and residential properties. Shingle roofing is made up of dozens or hundreds of individual shingles, which are flat, rectangular pieces of roofing material. These shingles can be made from a wide variety of materials, including wood, asphalt, fiber cement, slate, metal, plastic, or flagstone. Shingle roofing can come in a wide variety of colors and styles, which allows for extensive customization. This is ideal for homeowners who are going for a very particular aesthetic. Shingle roofing is also durable and inexpensive to maintain.
