Shingle Roofing Style

Architectural Asphalt Shingles or Traditional 3-Tab Shingles are on the vast majority of homes in America because they are the least expensive option. The terms Asphalt, Architectural Asphalt, Asphalt Composite, Fiberglass Asphalt, and Asphalt Composition all refer to the same type of product. However, 3-Tab Shingles refer to an older looking style of asphalt shingles that are not as durable or aesthetically pleasing as newer styles and materials. The most state-of-the art and durable shingle style roofing products are made from Stone Coated Steel. Roofing Force is one of the largest installers of Stone Coated Steel shingles in the country, and is the best installer of Asphalt Shingles in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Asphalt Composite Shingles

The most inexpensive roof coverings are asphalt composition shingles. However, in the long run, asphalt shingles may be more expensive than some alternatives (such as stone coated steel) when the frequency of replacement, energy savings, and insurance savings are taken into account.

Repairs are easy on asphalt shingle roofs. However, asphalt shingles in the midwest generally only last 15 to 25 years due to harsh weather conditions. Roofing Force is an installer of Owens Corning (Platinum Preferred Contractor), CertainTeed (ShingleMaster), TAMKO (Pro Certified Contractor), GAF, and Malarkey asphalt shingles. There are hundreds of styles, colors, and quality levels of asphalt shingles. Our experts will be happy to help you find the most suitable shingles for your home. Check out our Asphalt Roofing Gallery to view a sample of some of your choices.

Stone Coated Steel Shingles

The modern alternative to asphalt shingles are stone coated metal shingles. These lightweight, metal core products are more expensive than asphalt shingles but will not deteriorate, blow off, be damaged by hail or burn as easily as conventional shingles. These dimensional metal shingles last much longer than asphalt shingles (50+ years) and are available in a wide range of colors and high-end looks and offer great energy efficiencies. Roofing Force is the nation's largest installer of Unified Steel Stone Coated Roofing (formerly Boral/Gerard). We install Unified Steel's Cottage Shingles on many homes throughout the midwest for homeowners that want the look of asphalt shingles but prefer the benefits of a metal product. In addition to Unified Steel, Roofing Force installs DECRA Roofing Systems (Shingle XD), Tilcor Roofing Systems (CF Shingle), Varitile (Viksen, iShingle), Roser (SteelGuard, Piano Shingle) stone coated steel products in an asphalt profile.
