High-Quality Kingwood Roof Replacement: How Long Different Roofs Last
Roof replacements in Houston are a big deal, especially now during hurricane season. On average, your roof should last about 15-20 years, but this depends on weather damage as well as what type of roof you have. Amstill Roofing in Houston–which has been serving Katy, Cypress, Sugar Land, Friendswood, and other Houston-area suburbs for over 40 years–offers three types of roofing materials. The shingles we offer cater to different budgets, preferences, and needs, and are all certified high-quality, so you can rest assured that they are designed to last and protect your home for years. Here is how they compare.
Traditional 3-Tab Shingle Roof
The 3-tab shingle roof is the most common and entry-level type of roof, but these days, many homeowners are upgrading to higher-end options that tend to last longer. That said, this type of roof is still a viable and economical option for the budget-cautious homeowner.
3-tab shingles are lightweight and inexpensive. They are coated with different colored granules, which create a natural, multi-tone appearance to your rooftop that easily matches the rest of your house and its surroundings. A Kingwood roof replacement with 3-tab shingles will typically last 20-30 years, depending on the weather conditions and how well you maintain your Kingwood roof. Because they are so lightweight, though, 3-tab shingles are prone to blowing away with strong winds like those we experience during the hurricane season.
Laminate shingles are the next level above 3-tab shingles. Laminate roofs are enhanced with an extra layer, which means they can withstand rougher weather conditions and last longer. With laminate shingles, you may expect your roof to last for about 30 to 50 years. For a bit more money, they are a wise investment and look more beautiful and appealing than the 3-tab roof. Overall, they are a great compromise between beauty/design and durability.
Architectural shingles are the highest-end option we offer for your Houston roof. These shingles are pricier, but that's because they are thicker and heavier. They are superior in quality and can protect your home for 50 years up to a lifetime. Even with their increased price, they still offer remarkable protection while remaining far more affordable than wood or slate roofs. Architectural roofs also have a very unique appearance, which adds plenty of value if you choose to resell in the future.
