Choosing the Right Shingles for a Houston Roof Replacement

The average roof only lasts about 20-years, but you can surge past the average roof. At Amstill Roofing, we can double that time and even nearly triple that time. Just think about it. That means you could possibly only need one roof replacement in your lifetime.


The goal at our Houston roofing company is to build roofs that last and are incredibly durable. We have been building roofs for Houston homeowners since 1974 with great success. One of the reasons we have had such amazing success is because we provide homeowners with options.

Choosing the types of roof replacement shingles that last:

  • 3-Tab Shingles: The most common type of shingles are the 3-tab shingles. These last about 20 years. These types of shingles come in various colors that can complement the home. These shingles take storms well and every type of weather condition, they simply do not last as long after near two decades. Not in comparison to the laminate shingles.
  • Laminate Shingles: Laminate shingles have a lifetime of about 30 to 50 years, which can enable some homeowners to never have to worry about getting another roof replacement. These types of shingles are twice as thick as the 3-tab shingles.
  • Architectural Shingles: These shingles are the strongest and most durable shingles available. Architectural shingles come in slate or cedar wood, which ensures their strength and durability. These shingles typically last at least 50 years.
