What is Shingle Roofing?

At its core, a shingle roof is a roofing installation covered with shingles. Shingles are flat, rectangular pieces made of materials like asphalt, composite, or other roofing materials. They are applied from the base of the roof upwards, overlapping to provide full coverage. Shingle roofs offer a range of benefits, including affordability, durability, and ease of installation.


What is shingle roofing, you ask? It’s an affordable roofing material that suits many styles and colors of homes. Making them perfect for any property! To help you decide on the shingle roof color, Goodfriend Roofing’s Tampa roofer will come out and place large shingle samples on your roof, so you can envision which option is best for you.

An asphalt shingle roof is the most common type of roof in homes today. It’s a roof system made primarily out of asphalt shingles and other asphalt roofing components.

There are three types of asphalt shingles to choose from 3-tab, dimensional, and luxury. 3-tab asphalt shingles lay flat and get their name from the 3 tabs on each shingle strip. Dimensional shingles give you a good-looking random pattern or simulate the look of a wood shake roof. Luxury or premium shingles are actually larger than the other asphalt shingles and are made to look like slate.

While 3-tab used to dominate the market, dimensional shingles are the most common type installed on roofs today. Luxury-style shingles are just as heavily marketed as dimensional but are almost double the price.



Shingles are one of the most cost-effective roofing materials on the market. Manufacturers can produce shingles in bulk, making them cheaper compared to other options like slate or clay tile.


Shingle roofs are lightweight, making them compatible with most homes. Unlike heavier materials, such as clay tiles or slate, shingles do not put excessive weight on the structure of your house.


With proper installation and maintenance, asphalt shingle roofs have a long expected lifetime. Depending on the specific shingles chosen, they can last anywhere from 10 to 30+ years.


Shingles come in a wide variety of colors, allowing you to choose a style that complements your home's architecture. They can also be textured to mimic the look of other roofing materials, providing aesthetic appeal without sacrificing functionality.

Shingle Roof Maintenance


Regular Inspections

Schedule regular inspections to identify any issues or damage early on. Inspections should be conducted at least once or twice a year, focusing on areas prone to wear and tear, such as valleys, flashing, and vents.

Clear Debris

Clear Debris

Keep your roof clear of leaves, branches, and other debris that can accumulate over time. Debris can trap moisture and promote algae or moss growth, which can damage the shingles and compromise their integrity.

Gutter Cleaning

Gutter Cleaning

Regularly clean and maintain your gutters to ensure proper water drainage. Clogged gutters can lead to water backup, which can seep under the shingles and cause water damage.

Address Repairs Promptly
