- The laminated dimensional shingle: a premium shingle and has multiple layers of tabs to create a texture and dimension to the shingle. The dimensional shingle variation is commonly known as the luxury shingle as it is much thicker and has more extensive exposures than dimensional shingles. Besides, luxury shingles can mimic the appearance of wood or slate shingles.
- Organic shingles: made with recycled paper (also known as fiber substrate) and asphalt and then compressed under high pressure. They are flexible yet heavy, making them durable and resistant to external factors. Instead of having a layer of paper, fiberglass shingles have a layer of glass. Also known as composition shingles, they are lighter than organic shingles, cheaper, and more resistant to heat and lifting.

Several factors could be responsible for a roof falling into disrepair; one of the reasons is maintenance. Roofing problems are evident in the form of drips and leaks. Repair leaky roofs before ceilings and walls get damaged; better yet, check your roof at least once a year before the storm season. When your roof has many damaged shingles or multiple leaks, that means it’s high time you replaced the roofing entirely.
