Asphalt Shingle

New Orleans Asphalt Shingle

At some point, virtually every homeowner in the New Orleans area must ask that dreaded question: do I need to replace my roof? As one of the most expensive home improvement projects you could possibly face, it’s easy to understand why the very thought of replacing the roof instills panic in the hearts of homeowners everywhere. Fortunately, Shifflett Roofing is here to help relieve that stress. From reroofs to New Orleans asphalt shingle replacements, count on us for all of your roofing needs.

Asphalt shingles are the most common type of roofing shingle found in homes across the United States. Although these materials have an impressive average lifespan of 10 to 20 years, today’s laminate shingles provide even more durability. Unlike older shingles—which typically consist of a single thin layer of fiberglass, wood, or paper—laminate shingles have a thicker, heavier multi-layer design. As a result, modern asphalt shingles often maintain their stability for 15 to 50 years.

In addition to durability, laminate shingles also offer homeowners more design options than older materials. Available in a wide variety of colors and styles—including architectural and dimensional designs—laminate shingles offer the look and feel of expensive materials such as slate or shake, but at a much lower price point.

What’s more, because laminate shingles can usually be placed directly over an existing roof, most homeowners do not have to have their old roof removed—a fact that makes laminate shingles even more affordable. In most cases, you can even replace a single laminate shingle if it becomes damaged.

With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why over 80% of residential homeowners select asphalt laminate shingles for their roofing materials. A cost-effective and durable solution for any project, shingles deliver unparalleled security, protecting your home from the wind, rain, and other elements—a critical need for anyone living in the New Orleans area.
