3 Things to Consider When Choosing New Shingles

Regardless of the type of roof you may have, it always pays to take home improvements seriously. Shingles aren’t just about practicality when it comes to warding off the more extreme weather your home may face, they’re also an important factor in how your home comes across to others. Consider the following tips before picking the winner.

Styles and Shapes

An architectural shingle is generally defined as one that gives your roof some dimension, while a 3-tab shingle is more or less flat. As you might imagine, architectural shingles tend to give your home more personality, but they also may increase the stability of your roof too. A 3-tab shingle is more likely to be damaged by wind or sun damage, which can make it a poor long-term choice.


The shingles above you have a lot to do with the temperature around you. An attic can be affected as much as 40 degrees either way, depending on how much light the shingle reflects or absorbs. Whether your attic is finished or not, it’s worth considering how this affects your heating and cooling bills.


If you have a high-steep roof, it will get a lot more exposure than a flat roof. Ensure you pick a color that you not only like, but will also fit in with the rest of the neighborhood. Ultimately, this increases your curb appeal which can help get the price you want when you sell.

What our clients are saying
“We interviewed 5 roofing companies before deciding to go with Premiere. Not only were they offering a superior product but they offered it at a very reasonable price. On the day of installation, their team was incredibly hard working and did a great job of moving quickly while still protecting our home and yard. Darrel and Jonny were fantastic to work with and kept me informed at every step. If I had it to do over, I would definitely select Premiere Roofing again!”
